MC Enterprises closing!

MCE Closing!

With deep regret, I want to notify all of you that MC Enterprises is closing their doors after an amazing near 50 year run. MC Enterprises has long been known for making the well know Canyon Gage Crash Bars and used on almost every Concours 14 and FJR police bike in the world.

I caught wind of this after one of the guys here asked for a contact there, and he became aware of their situation, so I reached out to Ryan Nichols. Ryan has worked for them for 12 years and a long time member of this group. Hes supported so many in this group over the years and what I consider the perfect representative of the company - always respectful of the group and always willing to offer help.

Ryan responded to me immediately on the news and was sad that the news was true, and said, I really enjoyed talking to and working with the Concours and FJR community specifically.

Hearing that he was staying on to clear inventory, I offered to help by posting the news and to say, if anyone was thinking about buying Canyon Cage front crash (tip bars), saddle bag guards, and or highway pegs, now is the last chance to get them !!. When theyre gone - theyre gone for good.

You can reach out to Ryan at is work email: [email protected]

Their general emails are being forwarded to him as well. They include: [email protected] and [email protected]

With that, it saddens me that another very reputable vendor will be gone. Again - I want to say thank you to Ryan and the folks at MC Enterprises for doing such a fantastic job to our market. Thank you.

Sad. I fear much like Harleys the FJR/Concourse demographic is mature guys not being replaced by the younguns. There has been a lot in the news lately about Harley big quarterly earnings miss. Also the fact that the younger generation appears to be looking for "cheap transportation" in a bike, not recreation. Harley's $30k live wire is just nuts. They would do better with disabled scooters.

I sent Ryan an email and he quickly replied... YES! He actually did have few units of GEN1 FJR Saddlebag Guards in stock! (I was very surprised).

Yessir! I'll take one! $145 shipped and ETA is tomorrow via USPS.

Ryan and MCEnterprises have been a pleasure to deal with and I hate to see them go. Ryan was always sooo responsive to queries and the MCEnterprises parts have always been first class.

Gen 1 Canyon Cages still available from MC Enterprises.

Since their website is still up, I contacted MC Enterprises on the off chance they found some Gen 3 cages lurking in the corner that had been overlooked.

Ryan replied (very quickly) the website will stay up until the remaining inventory is gone. They still have a couple Gen 1 sets available if anyone is looking.

I only asked about FJR items. There may be other model items available, contact them directly.
