    The end of 3x Motorcycles, they may not be the only ones to go.  Always had good service from them, they will be missed.

    Reading the owners comments, it looks like they had been unprofitable for a while.  This current economic situation being the last straw.  Unfortunately, I fear there will be others going to the wall.

    I've been going in there for some years and it's true that they've been struggling.  Obviously COVID-19 was the last straw.

    I suspect we haven't heard the last of the bad news regarding motorcycle dealerships closing.

    They have been going a long time and always got good reviews. I believe they were 'Guzzi dealers in the 80's
    Sad to see

    Agree it's such a shame , I've used them for my previous Triumphs and ALWAYS had great service, they shall be missed, let's hope they can come back in some way or another when this crap is over
