Sad News

I learned this information from a KLR forum I am on.

Jim Venne owner and mechanic of Venco Wings passed away yesterday.

"It´s a friggen motorcycle, it´s not supposed to be comfortable, quiet or safe. The wind noise is supposed to hurt your ears, the seat should be hard and riding it should make you s**t your pants every now and then. "

Very sad news. I believe he had planned to retire this year and move down south. I've bought things from them before.

Passing of a great person. Jim Venne. Venco Wings Loudon NH

The Goldwing community will be morning the passing of a legend. Jim Venne had been bravely fighting his illness. Jim owned and operated Venco Wings in Loudon, NH. He was more than willing to offer friendly advice and help. I can think of no better tech and store for your Goldwing needs. He will be missed. ... =169745406
