Seems like people see me roll up on my bike and assume I can pay more fore stuff.
I went down the boat shop to get some new #2 battery cable for my boat and I pulled up in my truck. The price was $3.60 a foot. I went back 2 weeks later on my bike wearing the same type clothing to get more wire for another job. The owner saw me pull up on the bike and the price was now $7.50. I asked why the price jumped and he said what are you talking about. I told him I bought some from him 2 weeks ago and he said he dosn't remember me and no he didn't sell wire at $3.60 a foot.
I said huh, well no thanks then. I went to Napa and got the same cable at $3.80 a ft with my discount. I stopped by the boat shop the next day and showed the owner the reciept and then the one from Napa and showed him I only lost 6 bucks and he lost a hundred bucks. I said I won't be back and all my friends, neighbors and customers will hear about it and rolled out the door.
That's not the 5th time someone jacked up prices because they saw a Harley. Anyone else see to? I've also met more cool people and seen prices drop because of the bike. I guess Harley strikes everyone differently.
