Unhappy RIP 100 bikes and Austin motorcycle shop

Woods Fun Center at I-15 and Breaker in Austin went up in flames. 100 new motorcycles still in the crates went up with the place. More details at the link below.

I was expecting some sort of freak accident involving 100 motorists. At least no one was hurt, but that sucks.

Ahhhhhhh...WTF people!? The word is "sell". Sale is noun. Sell is a verb. People need to figure this out. It's so simple it's retarded.

....you'd think someone who writes press releases would fix that piece of grammar. It's the internet....you have got to let stuff like this go and be thankful that you had a proper education to understand the difference between a verb and a noun....but what kind of verb is it?

HAHAHAHHAHA.. serves the right.

Feel bad for the guys working there, especially the insurance guy.. super super cool guy, the owners and management can go suck a big blue donkey .

I would not be surprised if it was a customer that did it.

They tryed to me with an r6 that I forund was a crashed bike and the odometer wasnt the original. Bike died on me on the fast lane in traffic and I had to pull up in the area thats just over 2 feet wide between the line and the barrier wall. Almost got hit by a few semis.

said they would buy it back for 3 grand 4 days after I bought it for 7400 and put 30 miles on it. After a lawyer and a visit from some ex convict friednds they took it back.

ive heard a lot of horror stories about customers getting screwed over.. even i got 'screwed' over from their sales guy at the parts department.. but the service guys definitely got my thumbs up everytime i went

sad to hear what happened.. ill try to drop by tomorrow and post an update

But seriously, the satisfaction I get from hearing that place burned isnt worth knowing that some real cool people with families are going to be out a job. That really sucks cause thouse douchebags that own the place couldnt give two about their employees.
