    Too often, my ex used to remind me that I was worth more dead than alive.

    I am working Sunday but if you venture up to Exit 74 on 95 I can offer a semi-clean bathroom if we get to our housework first thing in the AM.

    And there's a Wawa across the street.

    It was bare bones, stripped to the essentials. Streamers would be on the farkle wish list. Did not add to the garage. :lol3

    @Dynamick yes, I went up to Philly to get it. Pete's also had a black 2016 so I called and asked about it and all of a sudden the price went up $500 over their listed price online; the guy said "Oh, that one sold. We can get an identical one, but we'd have to travel to get it and that $500 covers our costs." So, I took a ride down and there was a black 2016 Thruxton on the floor. Same stock number as online. I asked and it was still available. Hmm....

    So I shot Philly Triumph an email and the owner called me about 2 hours later. He had the sales manager call me, shot me a quote over email and the deal was done. Beautiful shop, a real old school type of feel, like the places my father would take me growing up. No high-pressure b.s., all gracious guys, they gave my kids post it note pads and pens to draw and color with while we took care of the title paperwork. Bike was polished to an unbelievable sheen. I looked over the bike and not a single loose bolt, missing nut cover/plug etc. Perfect.

    When I went to take off, they said "Do us a favor and give us a call or email to let us know you got home okay." So I did and another guy that I never met answered the phone and we had a short chat and he thanked me for my business. Completely different experience from the "powersports megastore" that I've experienced too many times over. I would absolutely travel up there for anything I need simply because of the atmosphere and excellent customer service. I cannot remember the last time I went to a shop where people just hung out and shot the breeze.
