I try to keep the "smaller shops" going cause I wish I had my own.
I would go to Motorcycles unlimited but I'll never forgive the owner for me over the way he did when I was trying to get my off the ground. that was unforgivable and I heard he did some others and tried to do some other the same way.

So besides metric and the dealer I'm done trying to patronize any "smaller shops"

Yeah well when you pass other places up on the way you tend to start thinking of other avenues.

After posting I got a phone call and the thread was deleted in promise that they would remedy the situation. I believe it would have never been fixed if it weren't for this forum.

Tried to get a motorcycle parts business started. Had rented a place in Kingwood and everything. Back then I didn't have much money I was working two jobs and doing everything as the money came to me (no business loans etc) He called the vendor and told them I'm not a legit shop and got my vendors to drop me. I have never got over that frankly.

First I've heard of it, and not true at all.
Charles, IIRC that was at least 8-10 years ago that you did your thing with the shop, and I know I've seen you multiple times since then, both at the shop and outside, and you've never once mentioned it to me.
I'd be highly interested to know who told you this.
It's hilarious, but if I had 1/10th the influence in the motorcycle world that some people like to say I have I'd have been able to retire years ago.

Patrick is known for stuff like that.

I'm still wondering why the Pirelli vendor for this region (John Hutchinson) can't be a sponsor on Motohouston? Heck, he isn't trying to get on for free, he will pay to be the sponsor? I know why... Because Patrick.

Like I mentioned in my first post... him and his business.

Can't do that lol.... He will call the vendor (he's done this before) and complain that you're selling product under retail.

And you have proof of this how?

Like I said, some people like to attribute some outlandish to me that holds no water.
Now, can I be ruthless at times? Yep, especially when I've been betrayed or over, but that's a whole 'nother story.
I'll let you guys get back to your circle jerk, maybe I can be the next anti-christ.
