to answer a previous poster this wasn't a rumor. cold hard fact they were closing. I'm sure there are lots of hurdles to overcome ... nothing will get firmed up today that kind of business is a Monday-Friday thing so I'm hoping they can put it together. I have no idea who is attempting to take it over.

I don't think it's Carlos. He opened a shop called VR-1 or something like that. I'm sure Houston Superbikes would want the Ducati dealership. They stone walled him when he tried to get it the first time. He's doing good with Aprillia, so he may not care anymore. Would be sad to see the Northwest Honda doors close though.

Think again. I stopped by V1 Performance. They confirmed they purchased Northwest and would even accept drop-offs at V1 to be transported for service at Northwest.

Well, I guess I am wrong. I haven't talked to Carlos since he opened the new shop.
