Ek verstaan jou frustrasie maar ek verwag niks meer van 'n band winkel anders as om aan my bande te verskaf en hulle op te sit nie. Die res is die risiko wat ek self neem. Ek sit al bande op by Just Bike Tyre vir amper 'n dekade maar hulle pryse ruk bietjie die hoender deesdae
Hulle sorg nog altyd baie mooi vir my, stuur selfs die bande Kaap toe, sal maar sukkel om van hulle af weg te gaan. Knomore is n super ou en sy diens aan my oor die jare was nog altyd uitstekend.
Just because your past did not turn out like you wanted it to does not mean your marriage will not be better than you ever imagined it could be.

Sheepman it sure does look lke you like to raise your opinion without having the facts! I know for a fact that Japie tried numerous times to contact Bruce but being at Kyalami had more importance than the complaints of his customer . So please do us a favour and get your facts in order be for making assumptions cause you know what they say!

Thing is Attie, that is how a forum works.  We all, except you, do not have the inside info.  We can only react, wonder, discuss, debate, argue what we know about.  In this case, the post from the OP.  He made no mention of numerous phone calls or Kyalami being more important than his customer, so obviously any of our replies will not include that as part of the discussion.  Every single one of us are raising an opinion without having the facts.  This is true for those who agree with the OP, those who differ and more importantly those promising to keep their business away from the provider. 

The OP placed his story on an open forum.  He chose what info to share and what not, knowing that there will be reaction, both positive and negative to his case and that said reactions would be based on the info he chose to share.    Again, it is how a forum works.

The fact still remains that if you do not know for a fact then one does not make the assumption, then rather ask the question. Every body is allowed their opinion that is so and as you said this is a public forum it just get to me that it is always a certain few that would like to raise opinions without having all the facts and rather than obtaining the real facts they rather assume and as you said maybe at fault of the OP for not disclosing all the facts before hand.

i think you are expecting a bit much from a forum and how a forum operates.  In fact, you are making similar assumptions right here, just like all of us do as often as we all do.

Maybe I am expecting a bit much as you say I mean what is common decency and we are after all only humans, but as to making assumtions I am not making any!! Am I stirring the pot maybe only so slightly :pot:

I was wondering about pot stirring, but refused to make such an assumption and share an opinion on it as I do not have the facts.   :lol8:

For sure - The owner of the business is Bruce de Kock and the tel. no. is 011 - 2050216
Bruce runs a very neat, well stocked shop and is very active in the promotion of all facets of motorcycling ( or biking  ;D )
Lets hope we can get to a proper solution.
I have spoken to Bruce and they will issuse a Statement shortly  :thumleft:

Thing is Attie, that is how a forum works.  We all, except you, do not have the inside info.  We can only react, wonder, discuss, debate, argue what we know about. 
So why do you argue and debate while not having all the facts?

Well, perhaps for the same reason you just asked this question without having all the facts of my discussion with Attie.   :imaposer: :imaposer: :imaposer:

By the way, just a quick and easy question for the "you are only allowed and opinion and argue, or debate if you have all the facts".  Please explain to me how one would know whether you have all the facts or not?

Just ask for the information.
But sooooo many times the debaters opinionators and arguers and the WD lynch mop gone out guns blazing on the little info that was posted, just to be reeled in when all the info was known.

Relax ou Attie, your drum roll has been heard, faintly so and people explained very nicely how forums work - Nobody said Ouman was right or wrong or BTW was right or wrong ( sorry, a few did actually ), but point remains, there is one side of the story and one side only on the roll currently .People even suggested ways and means to a possible resolution.

You telling a bunch of bikers to slow down!?   :lol8:

I doubt anyone, I certainly don't have any issue whatsoever with your opinion and I can also understand your frustration as I have also been there.  My only point initially was, that I felt a call to the owner would have been a good idea.  You have cleared that up as you responded that you did call, without any response.  That is that for me.  :thumleft:

Thing is, typical forum, Person A and Person Z have a bit of a discussion and that discussion is over and done with amicably.  Then, hours, sometimes even days later, Person 1 pops in and believes he should have his say on the initial discussion between A and Z.   He does not have the full context, nor the correct facts, yet he wants to preach facts.  No biggie.  Just typical forum culture.     :lol8:
