I had my bike in the shop today. I picked up a couple of tires on sale, and needed to change the oil and filter etc after the weekend ride. The dealer says he'll toss in free mounting, and the labor on an oil change if I buy 4 tires. OK, I bite, the tires are about 30% off and I run thru them regularly, and, I need the oil change and I'm pressed for time. I pick it up tonight, the fool slapped 5 stickers on my bike. Fork guards, swing arm both sides and a frisbee sized sticker with the words : Serviced by <Dealer name> on a number plate in bright orange with metallic letters. I was pissed. All the guy says is 'we do that in exchange for the discount we offer'. I don't remember the plaster your bike with stickers price vs the leave it the way it was when it came thru the damned door price. The owner got a little annoyed indicating I was taking advantage of them by not running their Zepplin sized stickers. I was shocked that anyone would first of all have the freaking nerve, then secondly imply I was taking advantage of their 'offering' a discount. No mention of plastering my bike with sticker was mentioned at all. Taking advantage of them ? Hey buddy... remember the cash I put in your hands ? Let's not forget that. I don't care about stickers on a bike one way or another, but the plastics are stock/factory and perfect. I plan on taking them off and putting on the replacement plastics to beat up in the woods. If I ever sell the bike, I can put the originals back on in pristine shape and it'll save me from shelling out for new plastics later on. Does this happen to you guys ? How would you handle it ?
