I'm surprised - I've always found the owners very civil. I too will buy elsewhere.

It's how they behave to people who can't do anything for them that counts. They should treat everyone the same, except for little old ladies. They should help them even more.

Bob I have lived in the Kingston area since 1974 and I have never had any use for the Gan. businesses. I think this is more the norm there. I don't know if it is because of the tourists but most seem ignorant. I am a good bit older than you and not sure I would have been as controlled as you were. Sorry your mother had to have this happen. If they still have a news paper in the town send a letter in to the editor. That might cut into their sales a bit and let people know what they are all about.

I like olebikers idea of sending the local paper a letter detailing the events. I think this business deserves all the attention it.....deserves!

Gan is such a small community it won't sit well with the other retirees living there.

Maybe it'll make these asshats think twice before sending another senior down the road.

I did send a letter to the Gan Reporter. Haven't heard back yet.
I think it may be hard for them with limited advertisement options ...

I'll keep it brief Dave, because its something I'm working on.....

No keys yet. I've replaced the ignition switch with a spare and have a locksmith looking for keys to match the original switch.

The Nuovo Falcone is fine - it was just a fuel lock and some crud in the jets. All part of learning its tricks and pleasure. Before it quit, it was running nicely at 55-60, so it will happily keep up with traffic on the roads I ride. That pleases me no end, as it means long trips to remote places are definitely a possibility. Can't wait 'till spring.

Nick

PS We must call it the 'Nuovo' Falcone (or NF). The Falcone is another animal altogether - and considered a real classic.
