Pity. They might have learned something.On 2006-11-15 17:42, Stlakid wrote:
I Went to one of their 'Bike Nights'........don't waste your time unless you are already one of the crowd! Sorry, buy I was VERY disappointed at how they acknowledged a new face to their gathering.............They Don't! I was able to walk in, order food, eat it completly with the meeting going on all around me, buy some of their raffle tickets and sit through the picking of the numbers all without ANYONE ever saying hello! Spent the entire time petting one of their dogs that someone brought with them. Didn't even ask if I had a dog of my own!
Really? Weird. I called and got a price on my 24K service, and South Bay Triumph quoted me at least $100 less than Southern California Triumph. I'll probably end up taking it to South Bay since it's a lot closer to me too, and my folks live nearby so they can give me a ride to and from if need be. I'm hoping the experience will be a good one.On 2006-11-15 22:33, Stlakid wrote:
It's funny, I live just blocks away from South Bay Triumph and I don't use them except for parts. I can't afford the prices! High prices do not make him a bad dealer, but I ALWAYS get a better deal on bikes and service someplace else.
Have to second his statement I had Meri Calo at SoCalTriumph help me into my first Triumph and she is AWESOME, TJ is very cool too.Second dealer experience was with So Cal Triumph and I would recommend them - ask for TJ who is in charge of the service dept. I was disappointed though that they did not know about the 05 heat kit fix and it looks like I'll need to push them to get the parts and install. On Saturdays they take bikes on first come first serve basis (i.e. no appointments) to do basic service work while you wait (oil/tire changes and similar). Otherwise during the week they ask the bike be left there for 3 days.
Unless I hear of a better place within reasonable distance mine will be going back there for warranty and major service work.
Thanks for the heads up about Simi. They're the closest dealer to me also. Never been there and now never will.On 2007-01-05 13:51, RandyDTFR wrote:
Simi Valley is the worst I've seen. I had my Bonnie in for a simple service. They spilled brake fluid all over the tank- not just a little... they must have dropped it on the tank since it was soaked. I pointed it out just before leaving and they told me "just wipe it off." They also over tightened the chain.
Simi Valley is only 15 miles from my place, but when it was time to buy my new Sprint, I drove to South Bay in Lomita- 80 or so miles south. They have been really good so far. I'll be riding there tomorrow morning for the drag-bolt recall.
I've had good luck with the parts guys at So Cal Triumph and their sales people didn't hound me when I was shopping for the Sprint.
Hope this helps~
Same here. I called Mari at SoCal (she's now lost 2 bike sales) about the '07 ST. This was 2 months ago. She told me they weren't getting any '07's until January. She also told me they had a couple of '06's and she could give me a killer deal. She told me she'd call back which she never did. That's when I called around and found a new '07 ABS at Orange County Triumph in Santa Ana. Todd, the GM, charged me $12,000 OTD. That's where I'd go.On 2006-11-16 21:18, flyingbiker wrote:
FWIW I called So Cal Triumph earlier this week to find out when they would have on 07 ST on the floor (not that I'm planning to buy one; just want to compare the mods and esp. seat redesign), and was told that they expected to have the first lot (non ABS?) on the floor within a couple of weeks - the container was at the dock awaiting clearance.
