Why would we close it? o_O
Honest feedback about vendors is highly valued, the only problem that ever arises is if it becomes an emotional bash-fest with rude and insulting comments - as per the rules.
Yet a review simply describing a lack of service, undue wait times, faulty parts - or the opposite - a vendor that truly excels... well, that's amongst of the most sought after advice second only to the help threads lol
We've no problems at all, in fact we really WANT people to report both the good and the bad about any vendor, sponsor or not - which is why this thread has been here since 2008: http://motorbicycling.com/f3/find-de...view-1730.html
We as staff do not promote or favor businesses just because they're a sponsor, nor does sponsorship garner any additional benefits beyond having a graphic advertisement on this forum. That's all they are too - advertisements, we're not promoting them, they're promoting themselves and us through their sponsorship.
Just keep in mind while we exist to provide helpful assistance with any type of motorized bicycle - we are not a supplementary customer service department for attempted warranty claims and public disputes. We encourage vendors to assist people with problems encountered with their products, but when it comes down to arguing over wait times and money you're best served by contacting the vendor directly. If that fails - post the results (or lack thereof) here in vendor review so others can learn from your problems.
So - best of luck and keep us posted
