It's a very sad day.
I've known Ronnie a very long time, and have always respected and admired him.
I've have also been a patron of NW Honda for years.
They have always been a first class operation, and they will be sorely missed by the Houston motorcycling community.
It's truly a shame, and one more indicator of how far the economy has slipped over the past few years.

Yea that does suck. I bought my TRX250R in '87 and my new CBR from them in June. And lot of parts over the yrs. Their customer service was always excellent. Robert (at the parts counter) always remembered my name. And they didn't try and screw me with some bullshit story. A lot more than I can say for some of the other places I've done business with.

Well most of us couldnt afford there when gas prices were up because we were too busy trying to make ends meet while paying out the nose for gas. Now with it being down all the dirty money crew couldnt go there because they lost their jobs. Unfortunately its the fact of life for businesses that sell "toys"

To each his own. Not jealous about anything, just stating facts about how life works. Bad situation for the owner and workers. I hope the best for them

If I remember correctly the high gas prices were driving people towards motorbikes due to the perception of low maintenence and valued fuel efficiency. Once gas prices took a plunge truck sales skyrocketed.

I am all for low gas prices. Makes my trackdays cheaper.
