You like Chicago pizza? How about Wiseguys on 51 in Southaven?



Jamie

Good pizza. I'll be there.

I picked up Chris at the Kawasaki dealership. They'll take a look at it tomorrow.

We're at Gus's in Southaven now, if anyone is nearby and wants to come join us.

There will be a couple of special guests at dinner tonight. Y'all come out for something special.

Potentially. If we make it up that way, I'll post here.

If you missed tonight's dinner:

Memphis area dinner ride

The Kawasaki dealer in Southaven gets a thumbs down. Chris brought his bike in Monday late. They said they'd have a look first thing in the morning. So far so good.

Guy called Tuesday and said the repair would be "under $1000" and said it would be done by Wednesday afternoon. Chris called Wednesday at 5pm to inquire. The guy said it'd be ready Thursday afternoon.

Chris called Thursday. He said it should be done Friday afternoon.

Friday, it was done. Total cost was $1360. Chris objected and they agreed to knock it to $1200.

Not very good service in my opinion. Not really surprising. I'm a dealer skeptic.

Jamie

Fletcher's. Fletcher is the only person who I let work on my bikes besides Pete Roper (who lives in Australia) and AF Racing Aprilia (if I ever make it to Austin). Fletcher is a fine mechanic who won't bullshit you.

So, why did the head fill with water?

DC- I will have to disagree. But to each his own.

Jamie- this is why it's always best to get a written estimate first. That way they can't screw you without recourse.

So when is next dinner?
