Is it worth the drive to Euro Cycles,Tampa?

My ridding buddy and I are considering on taking a ride from Daytona Beach to check out the dealership. My question is should we go check the shop out or is it nothing special and not worth the drive?

Is it as big dealer with lots of goodies or not? I tried to look and see the sq footage of shop etc..,but no luck.

Ride there, make a day out of it, have some lunch, and you can always say that you've been there...

They are a sponsor of this site so go by & say thanks if nothing else.

It's a nice dealership now, very clean, and pretty well stocked.
Several bikes on the floor, inside and outside, and racks of clothing & accessories.

If you go, mention that you saw them on this board.

And for lunch, check out Carmine's, one of the best Cuban restaurants in Ybor City, just south of Euro Cycles. The food is very reasonable and delicious. Downtown Ybor City is an interesting place to visit too.

Oh and by the way, only 5 minutes from The Florida Aquarium! Hmmmmmm..

Re: Is it worth the drive to Euro Cycles,Tampa?

I was just there about two weeks ago. Nice dealership, not a real big footprint but the staff there is the best. Just bought a quart of oil and an Airhawk pad.

They have a nice resting space with a big screen tv. Talked with a sales guy about lower back problems and his experience on some of the newer bikes. Do yourself a favor and go, you won't be disappointed.

Re: Is it worth the drive to Euro Cycles,Tampa?

I took everyone's advice and made the ride down today. I was greeted by Aaron the owner just minutes after arriving. He talked and showed my buddy and I around,spending 1.5hours with us.

The BEST dealership I have ever been to. I wish he was closer,but I can guarantee that if I get another Ducati or BMW it WILL be from Aaron at Euro Cycles.

I did mention to him that I learned about his dealership through this site and his sponsorship.

Like someone said earlier it's not a big store,but he has much more product then stores twice the size.
