Fort Myers losing it's Triumph dealer

effective Dec 5. Just got an e-mail from Gulf Coast Motorcycles which also carries BMW & Ducati.
Dear Customer Family,
We wanted to reach out to you individually to inform you that effective 12/05/2014, Gulf Coast Motorcycles will no longer be your local Authorized Triumph Dealer.
Despite the record growth we're experiencing with the Ducati and BMW brands, Triumph as a manufacturer has clearly not kept pace with the market as a whole. We've spent the last 10 years heavily invested in the brand, and all it stands for. Given the current market and management climate, it is no longer financially viable for us to continue with the Triumph brand.
Before you pick up the phone to call and ask...yes, this was an extremely difficult decision for us to make. This allows Gulf Coast Motorcycles to pursue additional growth with new and exciting plans for the future.
What does this mean to you?
As of 11/21/14, we are not able to order parts of any kind directly from Triumph nor will we be able to perform any type of Warranty service for you. Servicing needs for your Triumph motorcycle that require warranty work, out of warranty diagnosis, damage repair, out of warranty running condition repair, etc, will need to be handled by the nearest authorized Triumph Dealer (Haps Cycle Sales in Sarasota, FL 941-365-3443 or Two Wheels World in Pompano Beach, FL 954-788-9550). With regards to future service needs of your Triumph motorcycle you currently own, we will still be able to perform light routine maintenance including tire and oil changes.
Until 12/5/2014, all in stock Triumph accessories/apparel/hard parts are being sold for 25% off. All transactions will be final and returns will not be accepted.
We hope you understand and share our optimism for the future. Thank you for your past patronage and we look forward to serving you in the future.
Regards,
Edward B. Gallo
Owner Gulf Coast Motorcycles

Sorry for black on gray-it was a copy & paste.

I'm thinking they are making room for something else. Sicks to see triumph go but I'm sure everything will turn out OK. That dealership is the best, period. Everyone that works is great.

I'm looking forward to see what they replace triumph with.
