Section 8

I didn't see any post's about this............

I heard a rumor from a Ducati rider that Jason Etter (apparent part owner) picked up and left Section 8 while his business partner was out of town. WTF?!

Word has it that they have not been doing to good business wise.....



Anyone know the dilly?

Not sure of the details, I heard something similar. But the bottom line is that one of the partners up and left. Whether he quit, or there was a fall out, Etter is outtie. It wasn't pretty.

As far as their business, any outsider can tell that. Since TT opened up, they have lost a lot of business. I never understood how they can live in that palace in Commerce Township and survive... It just seems that the outgo was more than the income. But who am I...

Not to mention I had some controversial dealings with them...but whatever. I will take a day of bad service from them, than a day of good service from Rosnenau. Now that TT is around, I go there. It just closer for me anyway.

TT is a Ducati dealership that opened up in the last year or so. They also sell MV Agusta. They are located at Grosebeck just south of Hall Road.

No big loss to the motorcycle community! Although I deal feel bad for a few of the mechanics.
