I agree when yall say Patrick is a straight forward guy. It does seem as though he is very busy and im sure like said above, he gets tired of hearing the same question over and over again. He is very up front and honest. I too would rather that than a kiss guy that wants to bend me over for everything in my wallet. lol

Anyways, i liked the shop and the service. Actually, the only thing is that i ended up with a defective Power Commander. lol It sucks but its not the shops fault. I know they did their part for the install and the map. I called Patrick and told him since my bike had the PC installed, i had ridden it a couple times and at first it was fine but now its stalling frequently while riding (same day i got it). He apoligized for my inconvenience and explained that every once in a blue moon, a PC is defective and that off the description of the bike that i gave him, it sounds as though i got a bad one. Anyhow, he ordered me another brand new one and told me to bring the bike back Tuesday morning and he will install it for me and re-map it as well. Again, he was very apologetic and said he would get me taken care of as soon as they open up again on Tuesday.

I guess we will see what happens from here. Oh and yes, the guys up there took the time to give me a hand with unloading my bike from the truck when i dropped it off unlike many other shops that wouldnt take the time to help. Still a great shop in my book!

Lee,
$190.00? More like $185.17; $129.95 for the tire, $42.50 for mount and balance, $2.00 tire disposal, and $10.72 in tax.

IF you had mentioned you were MotoHouston, M&B would have been only $37.50. I apologize if I came across as rude, was reacting to how you presented yourself. No harm, no foul.


Patrick
what kind of tire did he buy?

Wow, 3 pages!

Taylor, your PCIII will be in tomoorow around 1:00, bring the bike up at your convenience and we'll install it while you wait.

Ownage,
Loyalty is a good quality, especially in this day and age.
As fas as your tire question, a BT014 would work pretty well, it's not as "triangulated" as some other tires, so turn in is more linear and more stable, plus the carcass is fairly compliant to help with mid corner bump absorption.

TLS,
I was kidding with you, although I understand if you took it the wrong way, sometimes I have a dry sense of humor.

As far as N00b's go, I actually enjoy working with them most of the time.:icon_smil

One of the reasons I left the corporate world almost 5 years ago to open the shop, was that I was tired of having a hard time finding a decent bike shop whenever I moved, or, whenever the service manager / parts manager or salesman I had built a up relationship with, quit.
I was tired of walking into dealerships and being ignored, until I pulled out my wallet, or having the service manager / parts counter guy / salesman try to bullshit me.

So I left the corporate world to open my own place.


We've earned a loyal following (thanks!) and have been been successful largely because of standards I hold myself and my crew to;

We will always do the best quality work possible.

We will give you the best advice based on our experience, no b/s, and if we don't know, we will find out.

We will conduct ourselves with ethics, if there is a problem or a mistake, it will be taken care of and made right, PERIOD.


Are we perfect?
No, we're human, and, people don't always know how to take me because of
my intensity.

Are we the only bike shop in town?
Of course not! There are more than a few good shops here in Houston.

Do we try to be the best shop in Houston?
YES! We may not always be sucessful in doing so, but we never give up.


I guess you could boil down all the reasons I opened the shop into one simple thing:
I am a dyed in the wool bike nut!
I have been since I bought my first bike 29 years ago, and built my first racebike later that year.

I wanted to have a place where other bike nuts, experienced and N00b's alike, could go to. I hope we've done that.


Patrick

I love the shoes. The first few rides were a little wierd because the toe is thicker than I'm used to(tennis shoes for about 2 weeks) They grip the peg well so they don't slide to the side, but they let my foot rotate to shift easily. They're a little bit of a PITA to put on, but once on they're very comfortable. I would definatly spend the money again. As for the comment, don't worry about it. I have a twisted sense of humor as well. Like I said, could have just been irritated at something else, having a bad day, or maybe my friend and I just took it the wrong way. It won't stop me from driving the 45 minutes there again at all, was just something I noticed.

BTW, I still want those Sidis.

wow pat great speach....

ownage i have had too many bad experiances with them. I was letting them put on all my tires as well but every time the screwed it up either not putting it on the right direction(dumbassess) or not balencing correctly or putting it on slightly crooked its like they cant do anything...PLus the peeps doing your tires are not profetionals there just some spanish speaking border jumper (no harm intended) pat as real profetionals that work on the bikes and are the BEST....Therefore i will have them doing everything for me. But hey to each is own.

Well ...... I am willing to bet Patrick didn't put a gun to your head and make you buy that tire..... so why did you buy from him if you feel its not a fair price ?


And yes I am biased M/U is the only place I ever go, or will ever go, Patrick has always been fair, honest, upfront and willing to make things right.
Thats not only my mechanic of choice for life........ but also a friend.
