Absoloute Performance HORRORs. (Share yours)

Probably closest motorcycle shop to me and ironically ran by 20yr old morons.

1- My friend went by to buy his first bike and the owner/Sales person (Dont remember the name but bald head short, chubby hispanic kid) offered him a 1200 Bandit, yr 2000. FOR HIS FIRST BIKE?!? oh and this is not the kicker, He took it home to find out exhaust was shooting out flames and next day to work it stalled on him in the middle of high way (i-10). Anyways towed it back and got carborated and 2 days later stalled again. untill he decided to get rid of it and was happy to loose money.

2- I personally took my first bike there being a freshy i didnt know much about the rates, I took it there, mentioned i had a new tire and needed to have it installed. the same owner/bald head quoted me 35 bucks. Not bad rite? well, after i got it done it went to 74 + tax. turned out to be an HOUR labor instead. and OWNER wasnt at the permises at that point so I was stuck paying 80 bucks to get a tire replaced. and TERD forgot to PUMP MY REAR BRAKE knowing MY FRONT BRAKEs were weak.


*** This happened over a month ago, im not venting but just giving rest of the beginners heads up. and if you had a bad experience please share ***
