Am I being unreasonable?
« on: August 24, 2015, 10:03:53 PM »
Booked my beloved in for some light surgical enhancements and 10k service..bill will be around £2k...some 3 weeks ago and still all the parts are not available...is this any way to run a business or am I being inpatient and unreasonable? >:(

You are having a laugh !! unreasonable no way! The people who have the bike are at fault ( dealer ) ? Assuming that they were
aware before you took it in what you were wanting done IMHO.
2K flipping heck what cost that much?

Yes the dealer will do the work...they don't have the bike but said would order the parts first,apparently still waiting on clutch cable. Work comprises new bars,risers,cables, powder coating lower fork covers and 10k service....gonna call them AGAIN today... :'(

My beloved was collected today to go in for surgery...it nearly ended needing rather more than planned as the guy very nearly went arse over tip riding it up the ramp and into the van...my hear skipped several beats as I'm sure his did!...going into the garage with only the slight whiff of bike bit no bike is rather sad..but still should be back by week-end ...hopefully! 8)

It was a while ago now, but I noticed some irregularities whilst riding to the chillout after having the new handlebars and grips fitted...didn't really notice what the cause was until the accelerator hand grip was halfway off the bar...that was a focussing moment...still all sorted....more recently I went and saw the new Bond movie Monday night and dare I say I thought it a little boring in parts..and slightly out of focus...there I was taking my glasses off cleaning then  taking them  the off, putting them back on again numerous times..has anyone else noticed it was in soft focus at the start?...also I thought it thin on the ground on Bond beauties...although the blonds was easy on  the eye..could make an old biker very happy or a happy biker very old!...I have just noticed a weather switch has been flicked as it's Halloween and finally looks like and feels like winter..very misty and nippy...ideal camping weather really.... 8)
