should of parked like on the 2nd row and said "**** you this whole lot isn't starbucks" and then went in and told the manager this is the last coffee you are going to buy from that location and he is a ***git anyway so if he wants to give you brain meet him outback and the cop can videotape.

i mean, i understand because I've been to pp1 and seen what type of idiots go there, but to refuse a customer just because he is on a moto is ****ing pathetic

maybe the owner feels the businees is better off w/o the moto type and made that judgement.........and is enforcing it.

remember JCI and Sonic?

don't blame the guy, if i were a business owner, i to would discriminate.......who wants bikers who come and MAYBE buy 1 cup of joe, and hang all night and scare the other customers away......

With a stock margin going in the tank, no business including Starbucks, should be turning away business.

I would think the moto community spends plenty of $$ there on Weds. night. It didn't get to be the "busiest" starbucks in the nation by telling customers to go away.

It aint starbucks...its the Container Store. Apparently when customers come in and out of that store, they almost get ran over by bikes flying in and out of there.

Also, the people that live in the lofts around there get off too at the noise.


I like PP1. I like the fellowship, all the bikes, the people etc etc etc. But I have never understood, in fact, I find it humorous, the revving and hauling in and out of there.

But the helicopter, wasting tax dollars, circling PP1 was ridiculous. Fkn Police chief. I mean for real man. Someone is getting raped, murdered and robbed. Go find them.

I have a video of that BTW.

and you think wed night bikers make it #1, it has nothing to do w/ a haughty totty area or nothin......

having not ever really been to PP1, you think 50 bikers buy $4 coffee;s ~ $200 is gonna effect their business.

i bet their traffic increase's once the bikers leave.

The Container store is closed at 10:30 so I don't know why that should be a problem.
I can see the lofts, but they knew they were moving into a metro area when they bought the dang thing.

I do not get that either! I make sure I don't come in off Westheimer in 1st gear rolling 15k RPMs and bounce off the rev limiter just to park!
