You mean to tell me that you were wearing that thing on your chest because you thought it looked cool?

well, if you wore a simple set of $10 goggles, you would not have that problem... perhaps you can machine up something on one of those lathes you got?

Needed a tube after yesterdays flat. Only thing near me open on Mon. is Danbury Powersports. OK, I'd heard all the horror stories, but figured, WTF, what can they do to a tube sale?

Call up, guys answers "Parts, Brandon" I ask if he's got my size tube, he says hold on, goes and checks, yeah, we have 2, and they're $12.99. I ask the brand, he says Bikemaster. Not a great brand, but it's fine for my purposes, at that price.

I go to pick it up, see the parts guy. Are you Brandon? Yeah. I say I called 20 minutes ago and talked to you about the tube, give him the size. He acts like he doesn't remember my call, says he'll have to see if they have any. Early Alzheimers? I just talked to you 20 fucking minutes ago. There's nobody else in the place, not like he was so busy working his ass off.

Comes back, yeah we got one, it's $17.99. Whoa, I just talked to you and it was $12.99! No, it's $17.99. No, $12.99 was what you quoted me. For $18 I can get a name brand tube.

He makes no effort to say maybe a mistake was made, maybe a misunderstanding? Nothing, total shit customer service, with a 50% markup.

So that was 2 times I was there, the first and the last. I guess the stories are true.

On the way out, I see a sales guy. I ask if they had gotten the new Honda 250 dual sport in yet. I'd been there twice before to take a look at it, but they never had one.

No, they expect them in in late Aug. Really, when the seasons almost over? Seems like every other dealer got theirs, what's up with that? Tells me Honda makes a great product, it's worth the wait. Great, another customer service genius.

Rant over.

must be something in the Danbury area....

last year with motofit..

it was a Friday before a race weekend and i needed some brake pads for my 250exc. called up motofit thinking "they are a ktm dealer, these pads fit a lot of bikes, they should have them."

so i call them (about an hr drive, better safe then sorry)

guy at motofit - "we might but i don't know what pads fit your bike."
me - can you look it up?
guy at motofit - no but your welcome to come look through them and see if we have them
me - what if i call you back with the part number?
guy - no sorry i am busy.
me - ok i guess i will take a chance and drive an hour each way so i can race on sunday
guy - ok see you when you get here.

was really weird...

i get down there and he shows me the pads, which are neatly hanging on the wall all organized and such...

not only do they have the part numbers clearly listed on them... they actually say what bike they fit on the package. i picked them out in literally 2 seconds.

also first and last time i will shop there.
