The GG website seems to be business as usual...so I guess they have restructured or whatever it is they needed to do.

There's a good dealer network in the UK, so even if the factory shut its doors there would still be a good supply of spares here in the UK for a while...plus I suspect that most consumable parts are common across a number of marques and come from proprietary manufacturers.

Hope they have kept it going.
I think the conversation was around 30 million needed to clear debts.
There was also a fanciful but logical idea that KTM would buy it to get a ready made trials bike.

We have a Gas Gas dealer opened up near me but it's so low key and useless, it would put me off.

Only reason I needed the side stand was the previous owner took it off and lost it!

Try MotoMerlin in Horsham...very good shop by all accounts but mostly on-line.

Sorry been slow posting but I ended up buying it , I have used it a couple of times and can say I'm very happy with it , it pulls really well and does everything I want it too it's also very light and easy to throw about.
With regard for parts I have found no problem getting anything , most parts are easily available and gas gas UK and biketech have been very helpful with any advice I have needed

That dont really matter as most parts are available from aftermarket suppliers anyway and the UK part of the factory said they will continue in one way or another anyway . Probably get bought out by Ktm or the likes . Then there will be even more orange bikes
