GREAT FALLS — With gas prices averaging about $4 dollars per gallon, dealerships are seeing an increase in motorcycle sales, and with the nicer weather, people are ready to head out and engage in outdoor activities.
Sports City Cyclery in Great Falls is seeing more motorcycle sales – but it’s not just people wanting to go out and about. Other issues come into play.
Scott Dailey, general manager of Sports City Cyclery, said, “It’s kind of the perfect storm going on this year. We have spring, tax refunds, gas prices.”
He added, “A lot of people have been coming in about the gas prices and talking about getting some of the smaller bikes that have the high fuel mileage. They’re inexpensive. Starting a little bit above two thousand dollars.”
As gas prices continue to soar, more people are resorting to alternative modes of transportation. According to the Motorcycle Industry
