Yeah, it's time for a factory rep to come give us the scoop on what's going on with the company.

Gutted.

I lost my 2018 xc300 to a blown Left main bearing and worked a deal with the dealer 2.5 hours away to trade another bike in for a new 19 xc300 while he waited for parts to rebuild my 18. (kid needs something decent to ride anyway)

2 hours into the drive I got a text to check that story. Asked the dealer when I arrived and he had zero idea, thought I was joking with him.

Lets just say it was an uncomfortably awkward afternoon at the dealership. I feel for the businesses who've helped build that 18+ bike to the awesome machine it is. I've bought WAY too many new bikes in the last 5 years and I've never had support like I've had from the 2 dedicated GG dealers I know of that are within 4hours of me.

Well, I wouldn't get too worried yet. GG isn't closed and appears to be delivering their newest model, the Ranger, so they might be ok. I personally believe this to probably be the new management, having learned from their time running the company, making necessary adjustments to how things were done before and improving their business model. We all new it would take time for the company to truly be back and in the black.

They need to rethink marketing strategy. Aggressive strategy is needed, Beta,Ktm,Sherco are strong bikes and the battle on enduro market is very high this days.

Thanks Mark. I knew there was a lot more to the story than what those articles were saying.
