I got mine from MCC but if you want a deal go to CCC and I think you get 30% off accessories and stuff like that for life. CCC has a bigger inventory and can cut you a better deal as for service you can go to MCC or Superbike Italia in Lemont. I bought mine used from MCC and got a good deal, so it is up to you. Good Luck
Banzai is still there, those guys are pretty nice too. More of a suzuki honda yamaha etc... shop. I believe they did have a Duc 998 (used) when I was there last year. I was able to work a deal on a helmet.
Thanks i checked CCC out, but they were real busy, didnt even get a chance to really talk to anyone, i am looking for a Monster 620, 2003 if at a good price, but most likely used. I heard CCC screws people over on financing though.. anyone get financed through them?
WHOAH. Banzai is gone. I rode past last night and the place was boarded up. Last summer the roof caved in and then the summer before that one of their employees died on the race track. talk about tough luck... but there is a new bike shop opening up further south on milwaukee ave where the daewoo dealer used to be called Liberty Cycle.
Lowball the crap out of CCC and before signing anything make sure to READ READ READ. A buddy of mine made sure to read over the contract and they "accidentally" wrote an APR of 2% more than what he was told.
I live in Grayslake-I bought mine up at Corse Superbikes just north of Milwaukee. It sucks as far as distance for service, but I got a great deal on my monster. It's a nice ride up there though if you don't have a major problem that needs to be fixed. I've also taken it to MCC to get it tuned, it was just as far of a drive, but a lot more traffic. Going north is much easier.
