I'm still wondering why Big B deleted my Sargent seat thread without giving me the customary PM explaining why it was deleted, and even after sending him a PM right after it was deleted I have still not gotten a reply back from him, and I even went back and re-read the forum rules and could not find anything that supported Big B deleting my thread, so I'm thinking that this is not the forum for me.

I think I'd try emailing him again before you employ the nuclear option, or else check with another mod like Greywolf. The mods on this site are pretty even handed, and aren't given to whimsical deletions. It could have been an error, or else your PM to Big B might have gotten overlooked.

He was on here today just like he's been every time I've checked, so he either never checks his PM's or he's just blowing me off.

Never got a PM from you, but see that I just got a visitor message asking why I deleted a thread I don't recall deleting or why I did. I went through all of my PM's not a single one from you, and I am typically very good about responding.

Ah yes the "Black Friday" special sale......black Friday has come and gone, so I assumed the thread was no longer valid. Do you prefer I open it back up, are there more holiday special sales coming from Sargent and the thread title should perhaps be changed? Once again I say publicly, you never sent me a PM that I can find..........

OK....went back and saw the date on my "visitor messages" as the date of 12/4/17.....so I apologize for somehow missing that, I don't get a notification pop up for visitor messages, only get a pop up message/window for a private message. I most certainly didn't ignore you on purpose, this was a simple oversight on my part.

So the answer is the special offer is over so the thread was deleted. As far as reading the forum rules is concerned, I guess you missed the part about no advertisements being permitted by non vendor members. I just removed the advertising links from your signature and home page.

I'll be honest, if this is the way you handle potential disagreements and/or misunderstandings with people (I remember your original post before you edited out the insult to Big B), it would give me pause when it comes to doing business with your company.

Myself and GW try our best not to miss anything and to be fair with good communication, please send us a "PM" with any questions or concerns, do not send a visitor message.

Big B

I was having a bad day yesterday which I allowed to affect what I posted up, so I hope you accept my apology.

The reason I was wondering why my post about Sargent Seats Black Friday was removed was that after I received It I found that it was extremely difficult to install, and once I did get it installed the two locking pins would not even click into the locking mechanism. So I wanted to contact one of the other members who posted up on the thread that had also ordered a seat to see how the seat he received fit.

Anyways, Sargent paid to ship the seat back and they're going to see what the problem with it is. I have a Sargent seat on my 07 Suzuki Bandit and it pops into position just as easy as the stock seat on my V-Strom does as they locking mechanisms are identical. So once Sargent finds out what the problem with the seat is, which is most likely the 4 rubber cushions being too high, they're going to give me the option of getting the seat back after they fix the problem, or issue me a full refund.

At this point, I'm thinking that I'll just take the refund and do a ride in over to Seth Lamm in Redding CA and have him rework and recover the stock seat, as he did a fantastic job on the seats on my 2013 FJR.

MetrickMetal, frustration can cause wide ranging effects. Thanks for the explanation. I hope you get the problem worked out. I've selected the visitor messaging in error more than once when trying to contact people.

Big B and all those interested, you can turn off visitor messaging in your profile so people won't be able to send them without getting an error message. I did that a long time ago. The contact info tab on people's profiles has the option to send a visitor message above the option to send a personal message. Turn off visitor messaging and that option won't appear at all.

Cool...outcome!

Despite getting a little off the rails this thread got back on track thanks to the OP's follow-up explanation and the mods extraordinary effort to keep calm and rational. Mods, thanks for making this forum...well I'm lost for the right words, but thanks for everything you have and continue to contribute! I look forward to my daily Stromtrooper read/education thanks to you guys!

Seasons Greetings!
