Peninsula Moto Group is done.

And there isnt many bikes left there either.
Bike staff is gone. From what the salesman (car) told Me they are wholesaling whats left
Saw a 2017 C14 that was hard to resist. But I promised the Old Lady no more hot bikes so someone else has a great opportunity.
They have 2 C14's in fact. Couple of ST1300's, a BMW ninetnine, some Yamaha cruisers, a couple of dirt bikes, A Suzuki 400 enduro DRZ?, and little else. All the Harleys were sold in a truck sale. The show room still has new Huskys but I don't know what the story is there. Quick end to a what was a losing business overall. Too bad because the other area shops dont do used bikes worth a dam either.

Well, AFAIK they were partnered with Red Line in Tacoma which was their source of used bikes. Maybe that partnership went south.

The Triumphs were a hard sell to begin with and I'm sure the addition of the little known Huskys didn't help. Top it all off with a pretty shitty location and I'm not at all surprised.

Have you looked over at South Bound Honda - Kevin recently purchased that dealership and is talking about the used Harleys that he brought over to the new dealership.

  Anything with two wheels.
Talked to the service manager at the subi section. He said most likely Husquvarna will have a dealer in the area. One of the certified Husquvarna mechs went to Cliffs. I am hoping that Brothers or Cliffs will pick up the line, most likely Cliffs because KTM and Husqu share the same 'genetics'.

Some guys got some killer deals on the OR gear in the shop.

I thought RedLine closed up some time back?

Redline closed, what, 2 years ago after going through a couple of different managers after Kevin left to manage the Triumph shop. Didn't think there was any connection other than that. Redline went downhill quickly after Kevin left IMO. I was shopping bikes all through that time period. Bought one from Kevin before he left Redline and one shortly after he left. Be good if he does end up at a Honda shop as I am looking to get a Goldwing in August

I guess Kevin was the connection to Red Line. Didn't realize he had left. All I knew was that Red Line had been mentioned as a connection in vetting all the used bike inventory.
