I called the local KTM dealer, so see if they could mount some tires I had purchased, as I was going to be out of town on business, and would not have time.
Me - "Hello....can you mount a couple of tires for me? I'll pull the wheels off the bike, and drop them by."
Dealer - "Did you buy the tires from me?"
Me - "Um, no I did not....I ordered them on the internet a while back when they were on sale"
Dealer - "I don't want your business
I have not set foot in the local KTM dealer's shop in the 5 years since that conversation took place.
Both of these are true conversations I have had...
I had an aneurysm the size of my fist on my GS's front tire. The only nearby shop was a Harley-D one. I pulled in and looked at its tire inventory. It had one the right size but not the style I wanted but beggars can't be choosers so I said I'd like that tire and if I pulled the wheel off, could they change the tire for me?
No way can I do a tubeless tire change in the field.
They said their tire changer will not work on my BMW wheels. Harley folks are so nice....
