Title: Dealer Closed...
Post by: harv7 on February 14, 2015, 01:47:41 PM
So...I went down this morning to buy some rear brake pads for the V7.  The Moto Guzzi dealer is closed, out of business, big empty building with a realator's sign out front.  A sign on the door says "Motor Sports is Closed".  I should mention--this is (was I guess) the MG dealer in Wichita, KS.  I bought three new Moto Guzzis there over the past few years.  A real pity.  Does anyone know what happened to them?  Does anyone have a recommendation as to where I should source parts?  I always bought stuff at the local dealer here, so I will have to find somewhere else now.   >:(  Definitely bummed...

Call the store line.  Maybe the recording will explain it.  We have businesses here that close seasonally without going out of business.

I hope someone went over & bought that lighted sign from above the door? Great for the man cave or garage!

I'm having good luck with AF1.

Well organized web site, easy to use.




Be aware AF1 charges the same shipping amount no matter if it's a lot of stuff or a little stuff.  I found that out the hard way.  ???
