One of the mechanics (Elliot) who used to work on my Nine gave me a call yesterday and informed me Matison's Motorsports on Capital Boulevard in Raleigh abruptly closed over the Christmas holidays. He stated he was given only a three day notice. He was thoughtful enough to grab my clutch plates before he left and provide the courtesy call. He got a job at Team Motorsports in Garner. He also said he'll be much happier there and to let you guys know Team Motorsports it a great place to get your gear and repairs. Elliot has always been straight with me, did excellent work, and he didn't have to call me, but he did, which I am grateful. My extended service warranty expires next month and he told me the closest MC shop that would honor it is in Smithfield. Durham Suzuki closed this time last year and now Matison's, it appears motorcycle retail is not fairing well.
