Default Crazy Dealer

Well I got my new Vision today. The dealewr was not very friendly though.

We were out on a test ride and i tlod the guy I was gonna see if would roast the tires. He said oh it will but that didnt mean i wasnt gonna check for myself. So when we got out to the light I checked the front brake and hit it! It do ok and filled the intersection with smoke but my escort got all uptight about it. Whatever.

Than when we got back to the shop there was some guy oustside ranting and raving before i could even shut the bike off. Called me an idiot and bunch of other stuff. Said I bought the bike I just didnt know it yet. I told him fine I want the bike. Very uptight guy.

So when i left just to make them mad i brake checked right on theyre patio slab where they had my bike waiting. Than i tried to pop a wheelie but it wouldnt do it.Whatever thats what they get.

Than to top it off when i get home theres a message on my machine to call them. So i did it was that same guy saying dont bother to bring it in for anything that my warranty was void. He said thats no way to break a bike in. I told him well if it cant do that than i dont want it. So fine I'll find another dealer it dont matter they were not nice anyhow.

The reason that he called you an idoit is because you obviously are. You don't do that crap to someone else's bike. Even if you intended to buy it. I would have not sold the bike to you and had you arrested for vandelism. If he has voided your warrenty because of reckless care it won't matter what dealer you take it to. Victory will decline your future claims world wide.

The more I think about it...The more I am sure that your story is completely made up. I call Bull Sh*t!

Hey whats your problem? Doing burnouts wont hurt a Victory they are well built and very strong.

They cant just void my warranty at other stores theres no way. Plus the only reason i am doing burnouts is because i dont need this tire I want a bigger back tire.They said they were gonna order me one but that guy was being rude and kept coming in the office so everybody foregot to order it.

I probably wont do as many burnouts on my new tire.

I have never heard of anyone putting a bigger tire on a Vision...hmmm interesting. And yeah a Dealer can alert Corperate as to abuse done to a bike...happens all the time. And abuse is the #1 cause of warranty declines next to experation. Victory is a realitively small company and the riders get a real good chance to meet many dealers and actually corperate Vic people. We are pretty hooked up as far as that goes.

They said arlen ness makes a big tire kit and they would put it on for me.

Doing burnouts is not abuse.Its not like i was gonna blow up the engine i shift gears when i do burnouts its no big deal.
