I heard about this as a rumor at a track day yesterday, so I called Corse myself. Rumor confirmed. I'm really bummed by this. A big reason I bought the ST4s was because of the dealership; knowing they were there for service, support, and anything else I needed. I have developed a friendship with many of the people there; they will all be missed greatly. Corse has been the best dealership I have come across, regardless of brand. Quite honestly, I will need to re-think Ducati ownership in the future. Granted I was spoiled that Corse was 15 minutes from my house, but I have no desire to treck to Minneapolis nor Chicago just to get the bike serviced. Hopefully some of the employees will will land locally so we'll be able to give them business.
He (TJ) is better knowen as DemonTech on alot of these fourms.....man I hope he's not moving!!! Sam & Kevin are trying to put a few things together and reopen something closer to Milwaukee in a smaller shop? Sounds like after talking with them that Ducati is going to help with the start up? I hope so! I learned over the years to do alot of my own service, but for major things (like my recent connecting rod bearing issue) I needed to bring it there! I'm really bummed about the whole thing!!!!
