Windy Corner

All is not lost as Roger informed me Windy Corner will still be dealing in Triumph bike servicing, parts etc allbeit without the franchise backup but I am still absolutely disgusted that Triumph have dumped them for this mob of CAR DEALERS. My dealings with Windy have been outstanding over the years. So why get rid of that? How can they put, "This new store will give us the quality of premises and level of service demanded by our customers.” This is exactly what Windy Corner gives. I think Triumph should ask its customers what we want for a change. I  for one will never set foot inside this CAR DEALER and speak to CAR DEALERS about bikes. I am going to continue to use Windy for all my Triumph needs.

Windy Corner

I guess my experience at Windy Corner must be different to the norm.
I had to hang around the showroom waiting for someone to turn up
and then wait for them to finish gassing with their mates.
Having finally got the attention of the salesman, who I have to say was very amiable.
I was told that “I can't have a test ride. If I want to ride the bike I have got to buy it”.
Sorry but I am not going to part with over 10 grand for a bike on looks alone.

He would probably be a bit pissed off with folk going out on their bikes, leaving no fuel in them, adding mileage, then buying from the internet supplier who beats their price by 75 pence, delivered. I wouldn't expect anyone to buy a bike without riding one first, but fuck me, some people shake your faith. The majority of recession surviving bike shops are real enthusiasts themselves, they wouldn't be here now if it was just a money thing. Don't tar them with the same brush as British Gas, Sky, EDF, Shell, BP, Eon, Tesco, M&S, et al. You all put up with far, far, worse service from them btw. 50 minute+ calls ring a bell? Your actual, physical, and real LIFE depends on the quality of service your chosen dealer gives, always remember that....When a shilling becomes God your life's expendable. Ask any lawyer, especially the no win no fee ones...

I was in Windy Corner last week, and was told they've lost Triumph and are picking up the franchise for Victory.

I wish 'em luck, but I don't want one of those.
