RIDERSVILLE CYCLE - BERKELEY SPRINGS, WV; Good or bad?

One of COG's members is looking at buying a bike from RIDERSVILLE CYCLE - BERKELEY SPRINGS, WV but doesn't know anything about them.

Any comments, good or bad about this dealer??

I work at another dealer and have talked to Harold a few times. He seems like a fine guy to me although I've not dealt with him other than looking for bikes and such. I know he sometimes has some really good deals.

I have had a similar experience. I have talked to the owner on the telephone and the dealership comes recommended by several of my friends. However, on the day in question, via telephone conversations only, Jamin was much more motivated to sell a KTM than Harold. Just my experience. I ride with a couple of guys that bought bikes there and had a good experience.

i've also stopped and talked with Harold two or three times. they seem to sell a lot of bikes, customers coming in from the surrounding states because of his prices.

he always has plenty of bikes on display, the last time i stopped to see the new Terra 650. his price on that bike was the lowest dealer quote in the USA.

I bought my last Husky from him back in 92 he had the best price and the deal went down just as we had agreed upon on the phone. AB

Jamin is a great guy, I say that because I work for him. Lol
If you call about a bike now you'll talk to me.

That's good to know. The only issue I had with AOMC and Jamin in particular was that I picked up the bike, along with a temp tag....brought it home and began riding it when the weather permitted. It drew a lot of attention from the local 5-0. That's when it was brought to my attention that the bike had no inspection sticker. I called Jamin about this and he apologized, saying he forgot to inform me that he could provide the temp tag, but that the shop was not an inspection station. I didn't notice, and it never registered in my mind to verify...or ask.

Yep, we're still not an inspection station. I don't imagine we ever will be. We sell a handful of street legal bikes a year and probably 80% go out of state.
