Customer service

ok so im pretty upset right now. heres the story. i just bought a 01 cbr600f4i, its all black and was layed down once by previous owner so frame sliders are chewed up and a couple scratches on the front (fender i guess or ya know right around the headlight area)

newayz i picked up this bike for 3200 with a helmet, it just has a valve adjustment done, its got an exhuast, bigger sprocket, and its lowered an inch. but it needed new tires. so i go in and drop it off yesterday and i bought some gloves while i was there, (alpine carbon somthing or another they were like 50 bux) well as i go to pay today and he hands me the key he says
"the beat up black one right"...... i was like wow... and kinda just walked out. i mean wtf. the fairings arnt even on (just ordered a new bolt kit) and theres a couple scratches thats it.

newayz who the FUCK cares if its beat up or not i just dropped 400 bux at there place he could have been like "the black one right?" and that would have been fine.

im 21 yrs old this is my first bike, i didnt need to go buy somthing fancy right now im trying to learn. errrrrr FUCK him man...

anyways i love the new tires michelin power pilot

Next time just sock him right in the face.

I fucking hate people who are rude to, of all people, customers. Your paying their pay check.

Now if the customer is being overly rude then I don't give a shit and fling it right back in their face. My boss is cool with that, so .

Take your business somewhere else.

Hi SkinnyJ-

His editorializing wasn't needed and it was an absurd thing to say to a customer. I've had the same thing happen when telephoning to make a service appointment for my totally mint CBR 600F2 and the dimwit technician says, "That's an old model, do you (or your boyfriend, arrrghh!) have it setup as a stuntbike?" It takes some patience for me not to say, "No, it's not for stunting and it's MY bike, jerk."



Try not to sweat it and just stay cool. Enjoy your new ride!

If you were a bit further south I'd show you my guy. If I were you, I would look around for a little self owned shop rather than a bigger one or a dealership. The small shops tend to be cheaper and want to keep there customers so you get treated nice. I wouldn't have been able to keep my tempor if someone said that about my bike... I usually carry a knife with me so it may have ended ugly

dont even get me started on rudeness...ugh oh here we go!

well i was on an interchange (between I25 and I40 in NM) and i was riding behind a little ford ranger and there were to dudes in is obviousle eating mcdonalds or something and they new i was behind them cause i had been for a while so i wouldnt miss my exit. so i see the drivers head go down like he was picking something off the floor. well like 10 secs later i find out it was his box of fries cause he just let them go out his window (box with fries in it). and they hit me right in the face and chest....i was like dude!...i honk and then here comes the wrapper to his hamburger...just grazes the side of my bike but still pisses me off. i honk again and they look back and laugh....well i'm not one to let things go (i know i should but its really rudeness that gets me going) so i just follow them one lane over and i see they are gonna take the exit b4 mine so i follow them to the light at the exit (coors rd if any1 knows the area). i procede to pull up next to them and pull my visor up, i say wtf dude that was not cool. they dont roll their window down (they were like 16-17) well i hade my icon timax gauntlets on (mean ass gloves, titanium knuckles) and i proceede to plant it in the side of his door and ssscccrrraaapppeee it forward...give him the finger and turn left at the green.
makes an effort to follow but it was pretty heavy traffic and he can split lanes..lol

LOL nice meat, I love it. I hope he had a nice looking truck, nice and clean with a good paint job. Most trucks down here are crap and it wouldn't phase someone a bit if you ran headlong into the side.
