Went to the Clearview site today. Has changed from the last time I checked. I don't see where thay are offering blems any more. Am I missing something. :dontknow:
Doug, this is true in some cases. But if you have a blemished item and do not discount it, it now takes up storage space OR you must distroy it at a total loss. By dropping the price to just above the cost to make it, its gone and you recouped a small profit. Sure you can write off some as a tax loss but I'd rather have the cash back.I noticed they don't have them listed anymore too. I had wondered how long they would sell them on the website. I expect that they decided that people were buying the blems and it was costing them too much as a business. Think about it, every blem sold is one less wind screen sold at full price. This is a business and if I was the owner of the business I would have stopped the sale of blems long ago. I have owned a small business and know that for most small business' the profit margins are pretty slim and it is easy to put yourself out of business. I bought a wind screen from them before for another bike and lean to buying one from them for my Burgman (have to save the money first).
