    Went to the shop and Spoke to Francois myself.

    They Printed the notices themselves and it was not done by the court

    Mean Machine will no longer be a Kawasaki dealer - that is pretty much where I think they decided to move all into 1 shop. (Silverton Midas)
    Notices from Francois was put up earlier (Not sure when though) that they are moving. Service department was busy working on the bikes that needed to be fixed for clients. Those not collected and or stock was moved to a Central location until the owners collect it and or being sold.

    From sounds of the talks they will open/expand Midas and hopefully have a fully functional service center up and running soon. Accessories will be available as always but at Silverton Midas. Bike sales.... Not too sure when that will restart and the same with the workshop.

    So they have lost or given up the Kawa franchise?
    It seems pretty sudden if they have no fixed plans in place...

    I'm With you on that Mark, however it is none of my business to ask for reasons.
    I have dealt with MM many of years and was quite positive when Francois got involved and could see them improve. they had a number of exciting fun days there as well, support for the biking community and councils.
    This however did not change.

    It is sad because Mean Machine was an Icon in the Pta biking community for a very long time....

    The Name will be kept but will be re-located.

    Lets just hope for the best, they were always willing to assist. (even after hours)

    I was very dissapointed. I gave my Daytona 675 in on the Friday for its 30 000km service and even spoke to Franscios directly on some bits they needed to check. Then I get a call on Wednesday to tell me I must come fetch my bike - untouched and not serviced!

    Centurion Lifestyle just got a new customer (thanks for servicing my bike on very short notice and correcting some wrongs done to my bike in the past).
