Angry USA Cycles near DC is closing

Just found out my dealer USA Cycles is closing. I bought from these guys because I wanted to support the local business. Could have saved some money if I had driven to WV.
It doesn't say if there is a new owner, the email I got said the Cycles USA was sold. Site says they are selling out inventory. Don't know if they would do that if it's changing hands.

Often when there is a dealer buy/sell part of the agreement involves clearing inventory "as best possible" before the transaction closes.

04 Wee with all kinds of excess crap..

If we don't support your local dealers more, there will be more close and we'll have to buy everything online.

Looking at inventory, they appear to not have any Wees, so I'm out of luck.

I heard it's being turned into a dry cleaners. The owner is 74 and doesn't feel he can wait out the resession and has decided to retire. More than a dozen people are out of work.

I bought my Wee, Givi Screen and engine guards there. Feel I did my part.

For Lease

Just rode by yesterday, the windows are papered over and the sign out front says For Lease. I guess whatever deal they had lined up fell through. The shop guys are suppose to be opening a shop closer to the DC Beltway but no word where yet.

R.I.P. (Retire In Peace, thanks for the great ride.)
