Winter Storage Deals!!!

Got a few winter storage plans going on this year. Yes it's still riding season but the end is near.....

If you need service and it totals over $1000 you get storage completely free all winter. Any combination of service/parts will qualify. Chrome parts? Custom paint? Full exhaust & dyno? Scratch a Ducati panel? It's easy to spend a grand these days. Best part about this is that you don't have to pay for any service up front. Just drop your bike off when you are done riding, tell us what you need done, and pick up and pay before April! Easy and no worries.

No service needed? We are running a special for only $249 for the whole winter. No ridiculous storage units for $100 a month with no heat, insurance, security etc. Drop it off and forget about it. Your bike will be well taken care of with no issues.

All winter storage deals end April 1st. Space is limited but we have plenty of room right now. Email, PM, or call with any questions. Thanks.

Start date is now. Some people only ride between 78 to 82 degrees and they have hung it up already.

Typically the answer is no for in and out stuff. If you need it for some specific event (Toys 4 Tots) or something we can work that out, but this is not your own personal garage. It's kind of a pain to accomodate that sort of thing but I am willing to help if it's not too much hassle. Let me know what you are thinking and I can give you an idea if it's feasible. Thanks.

No problem and that is actually preferred. Just let me know a few days in advance and I will have it ready for you on the day you want it. Thanks.

I was just curious... There are always those random 55-60 days in December that make you kick yourself for putting away the bike.

Yep I hear ya, but there are more days where your bike is sitting under 6 feet of snow. I know you want your cake and eat it too, we get a lot of those questions every year, but usually the few remotely warm days we get the streets are still covered with road salt. I guess it all comes down to you deciding how badly you will want to ride that occasional day and see if it is worth the hassle of you storing it yourself just for that day or two. Like I said if it's one special day I can arrange it, but for more than that it is a pain for a shop to deal with.

Storing a bike instead of leaving it on the street is so much better for resale. And working on a bike with rusty parts sucks. It is well worth the money to store a bike.

Hey! This was directed at me wasn't it?

I can vouch for Ken. He does great work. He has done 90% of the work to my sport bikes to date, and I am very picky with who works on my bikes. He even came and got my 848 when there was no way for me to even think of doing it. Beyond that, he is an enthusiast, so his heart is in it.

Thanks for your help, Ken!

That's to all the Ducati suc....I mean....owners out there.

Thanks for the vote of confidence. I do try hard to make people happy, which usually makes the difference.

I can also vouch for Kens professional manor and exellent service. He worked on my 996 and had it done ahead of schedule, and pointed out other oppertunities for future visits. Maybe we should turn him into a Ducati shop. Paul, I am gonna need a little help here.

The duc would look sweet parked next to the Christmas tree. Mandy won't let me do that until I get the ds7 out of the bathtub.

I rebuilt my '89 ZX7 engine on the kitchen table in college when I was racing. Roommates were less than pleased eating cereal out of a piston.

All the non-crazy people should think about storage at this point. Up top.

Do you have stands to store the bike on for the $250? Can I bring stands if not?

Nope, can't tie up my stands with the storage bikes. Yes feel free to bring your own stands and I will keep your bike on them no problem.
