Jason, first let me say that I think your bike looks great (that tail notwithstanding). It is obvious that your shop can build a very nice bike. I really like the paint job and how the strip tapers.
That said, it is still my opinion
that you and your shop should not have been allowed an entry. I realize that other dealership owners, and their employees, have had their bikes in other shows, which I also think is wrong. This should have been a contest for enthusuists, not enthusiastic dealers. Second, I do not think that DNA has handled any aspect of the Monster "Challenge" with any semblance of ethics or integrity (see my earlier post of this issue)
. Indeed, I believe the entire series is an elaborate charade. In other words, you were duped. Did you at least get your "free" tee-shirt?
You know what? I agree with you 100%. Thats why I beat Ducati about the head with a rusty fish for weeks trying to get them to tell me my entry was not welcome.
If they had simply told me "Why don't you just bring it and not enter it, it's not exactly in the spirit of the competition to have dealers enter."
I would have said "No problem, I can understand that".
But what I got was "Great, bring it down, we would love to have you"
At that point I figured what the hell, I love competition, I'm going to enter it. Fully knowing I would not be allowed to win. What pisses me off the most is that I knew this would happen, and I still let myself get worked up over it
Oh well, it's exactly what I expected................I'm so sick of being right all the time
