    Holy fucking shit! I was shocked to see that Champion Motorcycles has now turned into Del Amo Motorsports.

    I have bought 8 or more bikes from them over the years. Looks like Lee and Linda retired. What A drag. Has anyone got any experience with Del Amo Motorsports?

    That's a good story, have another one?
    Del Amo also bought out Long Beach Motorsports. I've been going to both of them for years and the only thing I have to say is that the LB Del Amo is lacking in inventory quite often for KTM's but they can get anything very quickly and the service is about average.

    Hopefully the new sales staff is a little more on the ball. Went in there several times to look at bikes, but they were too occupied BSing with each other to even ask if I needed any help. They sure as hell weren't selling bikes to each other.

    Parts guys always seemed attentive, tho'
