Just reading this story has scared the hell out of me... so bad that I cannot sleep and am off my feed...

To make things right, I think it will take a Super Tenere deal like yours....

Glad you survived to tell the tale.

2-I saved me and the bike, with luck and experience.
3-They continue to make it right.
4-I could have sued them and I think they know that.
5-So I do have some leverage.
What about the kid's boss. I thought when a job was done, then it was checked one last time by the sr. tech, especially if it's something that could cause catastrophic damage to the bike or rider if just ridden out without being checked. At the shop where I do my business the sr. tech (supposedly) double checks that the job was done properly before the bike is released back to the customer, and signs off on it.

This happened to me when I got the oil changed on my car at a local lube shop. The shop is located at the top of an incline. As I was sitting in my car, after getting the oil changed, at the stop sign waiting to enter traffic, I saw a stream of fresh oil flow out into the street from under my car. I shut it down right there, and the shop towed the car back into the bay. Apparently the oil change kid just loosely started the new filter on the threads, and left it that way.

I change my own oil on the bike, but take it to a different shop for the oil change in my car, but it could, and probably does happen every now and then at any lube shop.

And you quoting him without editing only preserves the link.

That is an extremely good deal on that bike. I paid $13k for mine, no options + TTL, and thought it was a fair deal. The "You almost kiled me discount.' That's outstanding, well played!

You didn't get a good deal - they made money with a good sale off you

What did they give you p/ex for the bike they nearly wrecked ?

Just love America & your eagerness to SUE everyone & everything

Not to mention the fact that you could have easily died.

Sleep on it, decide what will make this right in your book, then contact a lawyer. Personally I'd say, "replace my bike with the exact same model and all the same mods, and we're even. Otherwise my lawyers will be in touch."

You've never dealt with a dealer, have you? A new bike. Riiiiigggghhhhht.

I'm assuming you're talking about the OP who bought the Tenere for $13.1k OTD. The Bike retails (2012 model) for $13.9 before TTL, the accessories/warranty he added retail for about $2.5 k, so about $16.5k retail with $3.4k knocked off the price -- I stick with my original statement that that is an extremely good deal. Possibly even a money loser for the dealer. Not sure what math you were looking at.
