I sometimes recommend a mechanic here....if it's him I'd certainly like to know so that I stop recommending him. Please pm me if you'd like to tell me who it is. I certainly don't want to recommend someone like this.

Seriously? Isn't that being a bit facetious? Surely your recommendation is based on the service levels that you receive, not that which others receive. I imagine they can make up their own mind.

fa·ce·tious
adjective
adjective: facetious

    treating serious issues with deliberately inappropriate humor; flippant

@ Buff....actually no....I havn't had a bike for a few years now but when people ask about who they can use I recommend a certain person whom I used to use (and who came highly recommended to me) - I don't know if his service levels are still what they used to be - hence me asking so that if it is him then I won't be recommending anymore.

Threads like these serve no real purpose.

We do not know what both sides to the story are.
We do not know who the alleged bad service mechanic is.

The least we can do is steer threads like these to file 13 via the shortest possible route.

I think that a thread like this has value. It assist in keeping service providers in check. If it was not for this thread the outcome may have been different. Does not really matter who the service provider is because all ended well? Or perhaps not..............

weskus:  today is the day it should be sorted. I shall wait and see  


I really do hope he does honour his word this time. I really don't want to take this further, but I defiantly shall if I don't get a set of panniers and the correct luggage plate this morning.

I shall post the outcome here later.
