I have often chatted with one of the mechanics and sometimes the owner over the last few years (and brought them business). HOWEVER, every time I call or go into my local motorcycle shop for parts/ service/ merchandise it's always the same crap, "What's your name? duh, what kinda bike was that, hold on lemme check, they can't get to it today...what's your phone number?? your name again? ok, we'll forget to call you soon"
What about remebering my name, my bike, all the CASH I have spent, my frickin work number and the tires I prefer... SHEESH!
I wind up scouring the web for good deals instead bringing my business to the shop. e.g., I needed a new front tire and wanted an MEZ-3 16". It was Monday, they said $175 maybe by thursday. I found it at www.mawonline.com
for $78 2-day shippin total $112. It's waiting for me Wed. when I get home, drop it off at the shop that evening (They, of course, don't remember me or ny ph. #). I go to pick it up, Thursday afternoon, wait ONE HOUR, then $30 later I am riding....
Thanks, I needed that
