    will it self combust if they can't make a profit?
    This space deliberately left blank as the author writes too much pretentious bollocks as it is.

    Got all excited when I saw the heading as Sytner recently bought out the Swansea BMW car dealership, and I thought they might have decided to expand into bikes.

    Been reluctantly dealing with M&P since the 1980's ( my nearest Bike shop ), and although the owner Mark is a nice guy, as a dealership they are pretty rubbish.

    Most recent visit last month was for a motorcross type bike lift (12 shown in stock on website) and a 4.00 X 18 inner tube. Came away empty handed after being told by the staff that there was a at least a 6-8 week wait for the bike lift (coming direct from China apparently) and they don't stock anything larger than 3.50 X 18 inner tubes as there is no call for them.

    Had a look at their new KTM dealership on the way out, only to find it was nearly all super-moto's with one Adventure tucked in the back - Think I'll still be travelling to England when I need a Motorrad dealership!

    Sytner took over Rydale in Cardiff and closed the bike section. Are Riders not doing BMW in Cardiff now?

    Couldn't agree with you more, and never, I repeat NEVER, let one of those untrained, third rate grease monkeys from the workshop touch your bike!!!!!!
