Have any of y'all had any dealings with Old Fort Harley Davidson in Ft. Smith? I'm eye-balling an XR1200X and thinking about going up, to take a test ride.

Thx...nlp

The parts department can be a little clueless and just like all H-D dealers everything is geared to get you to purchase H-D branded chinese "accessories".

When I bought my StreetGlide in 08 I shopped there, Rogers and Joplin. Joplin was $1100 cheaper than Old Fort and $1550 less than Rogers. They also threw in some Harley cash to entice me to accessorize.

Old Forts owner and sales staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Did you look in their back warehouse? They've got a huge inventory for this market size.

LOL, yup called them asking about some valve shims a while back. It was an exercise in futility. The parts guy didn't know his ass from a hole in the ground.

Hope y'all catch (and release, for rainbows are not fit to eat) a lot of fish.

Thanks. I've never been there and am only enticed by an XR1200X. My dealings for service, parts, etc... would likely be with Landers, here in Central AR. I may drive up Saturday and take a test ride.

Have heard in the past that Joplin and St. Joseph were the place to buy HD. Funny thing is best price at St. Joe was at a Jap bike dealer which im sure same guy owned both.
