I went to PMS in Palatine today to pick up a part for the Monster. They are no longer a Ducati dealer. All the Duc bikes were gone and parts were being packed up. I spoke to Dan in parts and he really wouldn't say what happened.

But they now will be a Benelli dealer.

That stinks. They are close to my house. I like them in a pinch. They carry fork oil and other handy fluids in stock.

Didn't they lose a Triumph franchise as well some years back?

fyi, they will still continue to service ducatis, but will not be able to do warranty work.

Exactly. I went there several times and every time they were so rude, I wanted to punch them. In my case they fucked themselves, because I was really considering buying a used 749 at first.

Hmmm interesting. I went there once for some badly needed fork oil. They had closed about 15 minutes before I got there. I knocked on the door and they were getting ready to go home. They were nice enough to let me in and sold me what I needed since I was in a tight spot.

What is the warranty time on a Ducati anyway? 15 days or the first valve job, whichever comes first?
