And there's me thinking I'm the only person that uses this forum - and I don't even own a Benelli anymore! My new bike should be arriving within the next couple of weeks, just in time for me to put in the garage for winter!
On a more serious note, I was surprised with how quickly (within a few days) the head gasket on my bike was repaired once it was moved to KJM - it seems they do have parts available and will honour warranty work. If you take it to almost any other dealer they say there's no parts available. Worth bearing in mind if you need any work done.
