Wheel bearing purchase experience

Got a surprise this morning when I visited our local Applied Industrial Technologies (formerly Bearings Inc.) location to attempt to buy new rear wheel bearings for my 03 DL1000. I had my bearing numbers ready but they did not have the bearings in stock........when I casually mentioned the bearings are for my motorcycle wheel the lady immediately responded WELL SINCE YOU TOLD ME THAT, I WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO SELL THEM TO YOU. I know the staff personally through my work in industrial maintenance. The location manager told me that their Corporate legal dept. directs them not to sell for MOTORIZED VEHICLES!!
So bottom line if you visit one of these bearing outlets DO NOT tell them what the end use is for the bearings you are purchasing!!

I checked their website, you can still order online. Sounds to me like they would be seriously limiting their customer base.
