    Seattle Motorcycle Shop Armageddon

    Recent shop closures in Seattle, 5 shops all at once, affecting primarily Ducati owners, but also BMW, and Indian. Soundrider spells it out here:

    Something about a Microsoft exec biting off more than he can chew in starting all these shops ...... the PNW Riders B page lost it's mind when this happened. But I think it could easily happen in the LMD as well.

    ^^ very easily i would think, yes.

    i'm always a little weary of one 'group' owning several dealerships of opposing brand names.

    back in the day a '5 star dealership' status meant something, you knew what that dealer specialized in,
    not just how many sales they had on the register.

    reminds me of the old joke: how do you make a small fortune? start with a large one and open a motorcycle shop...
