    Closest Dealer?

     My local dealership  (BMW/Ducati /Triumph) has lost the Ducati franchise. They told me they did not sell enough units (<10 per month). Now I must commute to the next closest dealer, which is around 70 miles (110 km) away. How far must some of you travel to get to your dealership?

    Sometimes you need a really crooked road to get your head straight

    Ducati Glasgow are my closest dealer at 'just' 150-ish mile round trip, but as they weren't inclined to offer a half decent deal on the bike I went to Leeds which is around a 360 mile round trip. I used them for the first service too, but I'm not sure if I will do so going forward.
