Ya know, all I did was ride it home. I actually took my bike to the local dealership. I know better than to take it generally, but I just don't have time to deal with it this week and the chords just started showing. The tires needed to be changed and it's my daily commuter. I have a 2000 Dodge Ram 2500, but I can't stand driving that gas hog when I don't absolutely have to.
So I grabbed some new sprockets and a chain from the guys at Renthal and headed over to the dealership for some new tires, new chain/sprockets and an oil change.
Well $515.00 later and I have Pilot Road 2's (front and rear) and the new sprockets/chain installed and they forgot to change the oil so they offered to change it tomorrow for 10% off.
I was in a hurry and not paying enough attention...$93.50 for the LABOR to install the chain, front and rear sprockets when I'm already paying $75.00 for them to change the tires (tires on the bike). They already have the rear wheel off...shouldn't take MORE THAN AN HOUR to change the sprockets and chain. Should take 1/2 an hour if you're bullshitting and going slow...
I don't fight it with them though, that's the cost of going to the dealership and the reason so many people do it themselves. Those guys are sitting in there crying about the lack of business and trying to steal from all of their customers.
Hard economic times change things, especially for the crooks. These places are dying and their raising rates and charging higher prices for parts.
Anyway, that was a long rant, bottom line, I'll check the pressure in the tires in the morning.
Edit...oh yeah, I'm bitter because they "forgot" to do my oil change, great job guys. AND on the ride home I noticed there's a hose just hanging out of the side of the bike? WTF? Where did that USED to go? Now I have to take my time to take a look at it after paying these dillweeds to be the "professionals".
