Team X-treme?

Good morning my fellow biker brothers:

Anyone familiar with this shop? Just looking for some input.

Thank you.

It is indeed. I'm trying to change my ways on the forum. Back in the day I would have mentioned, or even linked a few threads where he tried selling a few bikes that claimed to never been down and later exposed as wrecked bikes. But that's not me anymore. Omer may a stand up guy now. One can only hope..

I have never dealt with him directly but I have never heard a single good thing about that place and the business seems to be run on deals like financing a $3k shitbox to someone with a <500 credit score for a total of $15k over 5 years.

Omer is a forum member correct?

Oh yes, he use to do rides on MH, right?

He also actually rides, right?

Business is business. NO ONE can put a cost on personal satisfaction. If someone wants to do a deal who has bad credit to get on two wheels it's none of my business. "Buy here --- Pay here" business formats are nothing new. Everyone knows the risks.

What's the difference between a used car salesman and a used bike salesman? It's all about the deal, everyone needs to eat.

As far as I can tell he does not try to sell anything on MH anymore, correct?

How about we all grow up and quit taking shots at MH members? Yes, I know him personally, he rides decent and seemed to be a good guy. Much more decent then those posting in this thread...

I've never met Omer, nor know anything about him other than that he tried to advertise on here a lot without being a sponsor, and then tried to act like he wanted to be a sponsor so we would leave threads up, only to NEVER BECOME A SPONSOR.

We finally just started deleting all of his threads and he stopped posting.

Odd, ya?

Yep, sound and ethical business practices as far as I'm concerned.

Yeah, sounds like the kinda place/people I would steer clear of. They can't even follow Craigslist rules for posting.

They obviously target new/ignorant buyers. Today's market is buyer biased, plenty of reputable dealers/vendors on this forum that would be eager to earn your business.

I noticed they use MotoLease for their financing.

I have read very bad things about MotoLease. You really need to understand what are you getting into with Motolease.

GF is interested in a used Honda Fury, we found some at Team X-Treme but we have not stop by.

Screw dealerships that rape new riders.

Plenty of good dealerships out there that make a FAIR profit to keep the doors open.

Use a bona fide MH sponsor if possible.

No idea how the dealership in question operates...But if as others relate, then stay away.

After messing with my bike with various dealers/service centers for the most part, anything wrong with my bike will be done by myself moving forward lol. Can't trust anyone it feels like JIC.

Hear nothing but bad about that shop I’d rather spend 500 bucks for a bike in a shopping cart and put it together myself that way I know what’s all done to it and not just trying to have them sign their life away for a pos

MPH in Katy still works on Moto Guzzi and BMW bikes, Mike Haven is a true expert and total professional. Doubt I will bother with this new Guzzi dealer, what a shame these two wonderful brands are connected with a poor dealer. Long term I will likely trade/sell my Guzzi, Triumph Speed Twin intrigues me, so does the KTM Duke 790. Motorcycles Unlimited will be my maintenance choice for my MV Agusta.
