    It is at Peter Stevens. Heard it on the radio today.

    Thank Jeebus boltons are quick to post parts out and so are numerous outlets in the US.

    This is interesting, especially living near the second biggest city in Victoria that doesn't have a Suzuki (bike) dealership. Has PS got the full LC8/RC8 gig?

    Go to the KTM Oz website and check the LC8 box. I was too lazy.

    But, as Angelo from Richomd is manning the spares desk I expect so. (Hotdogs told me this, it wasn't on the radio)

    I'd heard it was in the pipeline... but was hush hush until it had been finalised.

    We bought 3 bikes from Peter Stevens. And had bikes serviced/repaired there. I found them a bit hit and miss depending on who you talked to. 2 Salesman we dealth with were great, another annoyed me so much in 2 minutes he lost an almost certain sale.

    Parts guys are freindly, and Brendon does a great job in tyres :thumb

    The Mechanics... well... have had mixed experiences... But any issues I've had were dealth with promptly and professionally.

    Once i got my 950 I had just as many issues with KTM Richmond... They were no better or worse.

    I was guessing that it was owned by Peter Stevens from the radio advertising, obviously the same production company as their other ads.

    The one thing you can say about stevo's bike stores are that the are always clean, well lit, the bikes are well presented, there's generally always stock and they're reasonably professional. So many other dealers around Melbourne look like back yard jobs with uninterested yobs as staff.

    Their Triumph/ HD showroom is a pleasure to visit with a couple of nice old Trumpys on display.

    Cheers
