Sucks to see them close! However, any time I've been in there the staff seemed to be more interested in personal conversations with their friends than serving me and when I did have a problem with some merchandise, they wouldn't help me out.

Now I guess we'll have to go to Wheelsport for service and parts. :sad: I have not had any good experiences with them!

It is unfortunate to see them close. I guess I will have to stop in there tonight since they are supposed to be getting me a warranty clain on a givi part. Other than the talking with their friends at the parts counter, I have had great experiences dealing with Amanda at the apparel / accessories counter.

Although they now have parts / accessories at 50% off according to their website, until they close. Which is Oct 12 or 15 I think.

MSW is the dealer on Roydon. They and their Kemptville location are closing. The other Suzuki dealer in Ottawa is Wheelsport and they are not closing at this time.

Both are closing!! Man that sucks I ordered my SW Motech stuff from them in June. Their prices were cheaper than Twisted Throttle and the service was fantasiic. Have you ever noticed that it seems like only the good bike shops close :rolleyes: Do you know why they are closing?

I was in there last night. They received all the stock from the Kemptville store, so have quite a lot of gear there still.

One of the girls at the apparel counter mentioned that they will probably be open next week still depending on how the current stock sells today. Originally they were supposed to close tonight.

The CMG article this week mentioned they will be open till the end of the month. I suspect they will be open till the end of next week.

Anyways, I picked up half a dozen oil filters, the parts guy mentioned they only had about 15 or so left. they had around 400 in stock 2 weeks ago
