That in itself is impressive.

Very sad news. Hoping insurance makes them whole, though if that stash of rare MV parts was destroyed it would be a terrible loss.

All the best to you Balz.

I spoke with one of the guys, they're all pretty upset, obviously. :-(

Very sad.

Unhappy

I spoke with some of the good folks from Moto Forza yesterday as they are sorting out what orders are still outstanding and working through GP Motorcycles to make things whole. This is a great organization that has suffered a rotten hand. Support them where you can.

On a very sad note, I asked how extensive the fire was and what became of the inventory that Balz had purchased from MV Agusta USA...

...it was a total loss.

Those of you with the Spread Sheet of that inventory know how rotten that is.
