Thumbs down Disappointed at Daytona Bike Week

I took a ride from Tampa over to Daytona on Saturday Feb 28th with hopes of taking a demo ride on a DL650.


I was told "Sorry no demo rides today, we don't start till Wednesday and run thru HALF of Saturday"

What's up with THAT?

How about us poor WORKERS that have a job that requires us to be at work Mon-Fri.

Now I have to burn eight hours of VACATION TIME just to test ride a bike so I can give you my hard earned money. You sure don't make it easy on us working stiffs!

Now I'm gonna be out ten hours of driving time (2.5 hrs each way x two trips), plus fuel costs just to verify that I'll be happy once I plunk down almost $8000 (with accessories) to buy your product.

Sure wish you had been properly up and running on Saturday

Also Disappointed with Suzuki's Demo Rides

I also went to the Suzuki booth at Daytona hoping to ride a Wee Strom and was turned away because I was a day too early. Guess what, the other manufacturers were open for demos and certainly gave demo rides to us potential Suzuki purchasers while Suzuki employees were seen "lounging around".

Suzuki must have thought it was Daytona Bike Half-Week:rolleyes:


So what is it, am I a smart*** or a dumb***? Maybe I'm just an ***hole.
