Was watching this cause I have the same question. Live north and have taken bikes to Seattle Ducati and Bellvue Ducati but would like to be able to support the local guys and save some time in travel. Come on guys....anyone take their Duc to Skagit?

I have been treated great at Seattle but not sure I like the changes since Dave left, just doesn't feel the same and don't get the "welcome back what can we do for you" feeling. I don't like starting all over. I was told wait till winter and we will do a smokin deal on dyno tune and the new folks then say no discounts. I like to feel like I am getting treated fair and don't mind paying for it but....well just didn't get the feeling I once had there. Next time I needed to spend money I went to Bellvue, nice shop and was treated very nice by the service folks but was some what surprised by the sales folks out front. Was looking for some gear and kicking tires but didn't get any support or even a will be with you in a minute.
I know Skagit isn't really your Ducati type of store but a good service department would be great, thus the question above. Have a service due on the GF's monster soon , might just give them a try.

of you ever do please post your experience there. im up for a belt and valve clearance work. i went to seattle and they said it would take 3 days because of the line up. skagit i believe has an ex-racer mechanic for the ducatis. i guess as long he is certified. im with you though i'd like it to be more of a building a relationship type of environment.

just stay away from brothers motorsports in bremerton. bad rep and i have personal experience with those clowns. they only stay in biz by preying on the young GIs.
i prefer Seattle Duc because of the Italian restaurant next door. Awesome food.
can't really think of a better reason.
