Take a cattle prod next time...My kids & granddaughter live a mile from Bobs BMW so when we were planning to go out last Friday I stopped in to see if I could rent/borrow something for a several hour test ride. The conversation went something like this:
Salesguy #1: Hi, what can we help you with?
Me: [Back story about friend dropping bike off for service and me wanting a bike to go together while friend is on a loaner.]
Salesguy #1: Sorry, we don't rent, test rides are supposed to be 20 minutes or less, and loaners are for valued [yes he said that] customers who bought from us or are having service.
Me: Mmmm - Too bad - Oh well. OK - Thanks anyway [Turning to leave]
Salesguy #1: What do you ride now?
Me: A 2014 Super tenere [fishing to see if he recognizes a potential sale because my bike is "older"]
Salesguy #2: [Condescending sound] Oh. OK. Well let us know if we can improve your ride.
Me: [I'd been about to just end it till that comment so yes I said] That's OK. My bike's been all over the continent and I still enjoy being the BMW recovery vehicle because the Yam just never breaks.
Salesguy #1: Ouch - That hurt. Sorry we can't help you.
