first thanks for the 2ndbite link, i had a look and im going to look at a bike there tommorow.
so, i said i’d post how it went.
on the morning i was going up, i got a call as i was boarding the train.
i was told the bike had problems with the hpi report which sounded odd to me as why would a dealer pay for a bike it didnt know. anyway i got off the train and they said they’d call me.
i told em i wanted my deposit and my train fare back and in fairness i have now got it.
but i lost a days money and the tube fair of course.
i was suspicious especially when i asked Gary who i was dealing with about this and he said “oh no its not hpi is another database” and then when the lady rang me to sort out the refund she said “good job we caught you, its just a mistake on the price.”
the bike disappeared from the website, but today reappeared
listed £1k more than it was last week.
I accept we all make mistakes, i dont accept being lied to as appears to be the case. of course there could have been an issue they wanted to resolve, but as i asked them to let me know if the bike was going to be available and they havent, well lets say im suspicious in the extreme.
so, in short when i first asked about this dealer i had no info, but now i can say that my experience with them wasnt exactly positive.
hope this is of use for anyone who searches on this, im still looking for a good gsxr but might have found one so fingers crossed…
