so.. theres a friend of a friend whos a rider and a good supplier of lots and lots and lots of motorcycle parts and accesories and some pretty good prices too.
at anyrate since many of us wear UA he was speaking with the under armor rep and wanted to start selling. this is a quote from the friend of a friend about his conversation, (NOT A DIRECT QUOTE FROM THE CONVERSATION)
"well, the head sales rep. in my area told me that he wasnt able to set me up because i am not considered a "sporting goods" store. he told me that their marketing strategy is to work towards growing their football, baseball, etc. base and they are not in the market to expand into our world."
i know a lot of people that are pissed about the response being that a good deal of us do wear UA products, that we are very brand loyal, and especially that we obviously spend a great deal of money on our pleasure/sport. the feeling by some is that if we are not viewed as important enough to allow dealers the ability to sell UA products to us, then perhaps we shouldn't use UA products. I personally thought it was sorta crap for many reasons ranging from "why wouldn't you want to allow someone else to market your gear in a new direction that you hadn't thought of" to the simple fact that the guy that is trying to set up to sell UA gear has offered me some great deals and been nothing but helpful with getting me exactly what i want when i want it, as well as giving a lot of advice.
at anyrate anyone that wants to offer support is welcome to
many have sent emails expressing there upset to
