Parts Canada announces today that it will not be renewing sponsorship for 2012 with

other ways including team support, and rider support, both amateur and professional.
After a successful 2011 season with new ownership and the new title of CSBK Parts

owners, technicians and fans, and does not wish to be associated with or condone
conduct that is not consistent with this philosophy. We support the sport, and will
continue our efforts to promote motorcycling in Canada. We are looking forward to a
