Title: Why would a Wildog say this about me???????
Post by: Tyre kicker on March 27, 2011, 12:59:28 pm
I sold my pristine and virtually brand new Husqvarna TE610 motorcycle with full service history and with over two thousand kilometers to a forum member in August 2010, whom did all the checks and balances including sending his family member to inspect the bike on his behalf prior to purchasing it.

Prior to selling this motorcycle it only had it's first 1000km service done by the agents whom I bought it from,the next service only being due on 6000km's.

I have had good feedback about the bike thus far and have had good ride reports even on this very forum,however it seems that the feedback and reports have been quite contradictory and amazing at times when compared to what was actually posted on an American forum by the same Wildog member on 9February2011 and again yesterday.

I only received a phone call yesterday by a friend and also a Wildog member asking me if I knew of such incident or feedback that had been posted on http://www.cafehusky.com/threads/help-debris-found-in-my-engine-610-630-clutch-issues.16604/  .  :o :o :o

I obviously had no idea as this was never ever raised with myself nor am I a member of the Cafe Husky forum in the United States and hence would not have known of any such posts or issues. :-[ :-[ :-[

AT the time of posting this I have not had  a phone call,nor a personal message,nor an sms nor any indication whatsoever from this Wildog member about his sneaky suspicion of my integrity and values.   

For the people who know me I pride myself on what I own and how I look after it.

I have been labelled as anal at times which in a sense makes me proud but when something as vindictive and untrue is said  and posted about me in absentia without even affording me the courtesy of defending myself let alone informing me about the incident.  :'(

I can only pity such a persons's own  integrity and wonder how they might sleep at night. ??? ??? ???

I would not be telling the truth if I said I was not enraged  and enfuriated at the time of finding out from a friend whom happens to be a member on the same  American forum as this Wildog member  in question.

It is clear from the post links  listed below that this Wildog member has a history of destroying motorcycles i.e. his KX250F that according to him recently also blew up.

He pretends to have a wealth of mechanical knowledge which to me seems to be the voice of his mechanic rather than his expertise which also becomes quite obvious when reading his contradicting posts, having said this I am not so sure that his mechanic is that great either . :o :o :o

It also unfortunately seems that every person that he has dealt with when purchasing a motorcycle seems dishonest and has hidden agendas.  :( :( :(

I really really regret selling my bike to a person with these morals as it certianly deserved a much better home than this. :'( :'( :'(


My question is how would you react to such false allegations if your integrity was questioned particularly in your absence???  >:( >:(

I recently purchased an XR650L because it was better suited as a dual sport bike than the Husqvarna TE450 that I was planning to purchase and did not sell the Husqvarna to anyone because anything was broken on it!!!!  ??? ??? ??? ??? ???   

There has also been some interesting ride reports from this member on this bike on this forum that I have not copied to this post,feel free to peruse at your own free will.  :thumleft:

TK, I should have bought it.
Bit it really would have been too much for Veldblom to handle.
I would have had fun though.

Boet, you and I know who you are and in what condition that bike was.
I know as well.
It was pristine and if looked after would not give the kind of kak mentioned on cafehusky.
Not with those km's on the clock.

Confront him with the allegations and contradictions made if it bothers you.
Otherwise, just kap it a beeg fat iggi.

Sad but unfortunately the risks of selling and buying second hand. I have bought an XR600R from a good old friend and lost more than R10K….and it was overhauled etc.
However, as they say there are always 3 sides to a story; my side, your side and the truth…eish  :deal:

Sh@t happens  :patch: Cheer up!  :D

TK , I've been a WD member for a while now , and love the absolute camaraderie between fellow dogs . Unfortunately , I to have learnt the hard way that not all WD's can be trusted .
The most sad part is that is always the ones you considered to be a friend who stabs you in the back .
Don't worry , there will always be those who knows the truth , and what goes around comes around .

Prepare a comprehensive list of the man's contradictory posts.
Register and post your list at the places where he is dissing you or the bike.
The other readers can go see for themselves.

ignore it

anything you say will look like a cover up

it has happened numerous times on the forum - there is never a winner in threads like that

if you buy second hand you have to be happy with the bike you buy at the price vs the risk

But if there was an issue it should be laid at the service agents door, TK did not service the bike, the agent did.

I read some of those posts on Cafe Husky a while ago and never really thought he was slagging the previous owner, but then I tend to scan for stuff that interests me rather than read everything verbatim.

Obviously any new owner is going to be alarmed to find that sort of thing on a lowish mileage bike - which should be taken into account when reading his posts IMO.

Perhaps it would have been better to sort it out direct between the two of you rather than posting this on a public forum? 

And in any event it seemed that there was no serious damage done to the bike and it was reasonably easily rectified in the end so apart from the posts that annoyed you, there isnt that much harm done perhaps?

Its still a great bike though hey :mwink:, even survives all sorts of stuff floating around inside it, without too many issues!   :biggrin:   :thumleft:  (Going to check mine at the next service though  :eek7:)

The issue i have with this whole things is --The bike was still under Warranty and having dealt with the importers a lot --they would have repaired it under warranty --end of problem --

They repaired Grunt's 450 that he bought from someone else with low hours on --for free---

Shit happens.

 It seems , however,  that the suggestion that TK knew about the issue is what upsetted him - understandably so if you know the man at all. I have never met an oke that frets so much over his bikes and take such good care of them. We meet regularly and never was there any talk of a problem - the bike preformed flawlessly whist under his ownership. When he decided to sell it he garaged it so as to ensure that it remained in pristine condition.

At the end of the day none of this really matters and I agree with the advice to move on and let it be, even if you still fuming.

I have taken note of every bit of advice that I have received and have come to the conclusion that I need to move on no matter the bitter taste that remains.

My intention was not to rally for support but rather to reach out and request advice on  how to deal with a situation that I have never ever faced before as at the time I was enfuriated and enraged and did not know how to deal with it.

I still feel although my integrity was severly questioned ,it is still  myne and intact and I will continue to strengthen it going forward.

I can sympathize with RR about the fact that his 610 failed on him.

Having said that, I am a firm believer of doing your homework. It seems that it is a well known fact that these clutch washers might cause issues and it's up to the owner to attend to the shortcomings of his bike, whether the bike is new or not, doesn't matter.
