Anyone familiar with Texotic?

Had Texotic recommended to me by a guy who works there. So, not exactly the least bias source. Which leaves me wondering if anyone is familiar with these guys.
Do they do good mechanical work?
Are the bikes they sell legit?
Any other random experiences with them?

Never hear of them. The only mechanic shop I trust is Motorcycles Unlimited. You can not go wrong with them.

I know you weren't asking about Motorcycles Unlimited, but I thought maybe a good word about them might steer you there instead of an unknown. Motorcycles Unlimited is worth the drive no matter your location , I have found them to be honest and had my brothers bike in and out in a blink. price was right

Are they pretty upfront with their used bike pricing? Because they don't list them on the website.

I used to sell new/used cars and I know for a fact that not being totally upfront with your used vehicle pricing means you're out to rip off the buyer (even more than a dealership who does list the pricing, lol).

Been there twice. It's a hole. The location and building, well, it was lacking. The first time I only bought annodized shorties - that actually broke. Still wanting to give them a chance - The second time I just looked at what they had and was constantly thinking - omg, who would want to sell this ....? That was a little over a year ago. Maybe they changed.

You are joking right??

The helmets don't even mention the brand!

Perhaps they are fine as a scooters store but not Motorcycles. The Go-Karts and Scooters is the same you can get at Trader's Village and I guess cheaper.

10 seconds on the website: "we have a 98% financing approval rate. Do you make $1500?"

This is a place that takes advantage of people with credit to sell bikes. Like the "buy here pay here" places. I can't imagine they'd have a stellar service department.
