Dealer Closed...
« 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!

Oh yeah, the one with the Art Deco architecture and Doric columns.    ;)

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.  ???
