Encil??

Here is a recap of the posts relevant to menintools.com. The rest of it was just reaction to your "going off" on D Nyberg and my "not so charitable" comments about it.

Barbara P's post which also indicated that she was happy with the ped and the service from JCWhitney:

Hi! Just bought a TFR from JCWhitney-ended up paying $800 total out the door, INCLUDING turnsignals, extra mirror, shipping. Actual price listed is $888, I also ended up receiving a 10% good customer discount, you could ask for it if you go through them.

Your reply to Barbara, (no mention that you are menintools):

that sucks 4 u at (http://www.menintools.com) they cuold have sent u the same machine for hundreds less. sorry.

D Nyberg's response to you (an unknown poster):

That could be true, but as far as I know, nobody has tested the reliability of this vendor. Whitney's price is not bad, and they're a known reputable firm.

Note that D Nyberg simply states that we seem to have no history on menintools.com, he does not say you are unreliable or disreputable, only that we don't know. Barbara was obviously very happy with the service from JCWhitney. I can't recall an instance of anyone posting on this forum with either positive or negative comments about menintools.com, except for a few who mentioned seeing your prices which appeared to be good.

At this point, you could have introduced yourself as menintools.com, explained how long you have been dealing in TFR's and other small 2 wheelers, described your end user support and give us the delivered price of a comparably equipped TFR like Barbara bought so that we would know what "hundred's less" really means (btw, you could still post this price).

This could have gained you all kinds of goodwill on this forum, and I'm sure that anyone who was in the market for a TFR or any of the other brands you sell would have considered menintools.com as a vendor.

Just to be complete, your reply to D Nyberg, who never said anything more than he did not know your company:

how 'bout i put my repubility right up your tucas break>

This post was such an over reaction that it totally surpised me. Even more so, when I visited menintools.com to inform you that someone was projecting a bad image of your company, only to find out from your contact email address that you were menintools.

It is nice of you to appologize and I, personally accept it. I still don't understand your reaction to D Nyberg's post and as far as I am concerned, there was no "somewhat appology" to thank us for. D Nyberg was confused by one of my attempts at levity when I accused him of "winding you up" and so, like a reasonable person, he said effectively, "if I did, I'm sorry". You may take this as an appology, personally, I don't think you deserve one.

I sincerely hope that we will see postings on this forum from people who have bought mopeds from you and are as happy with the product, price and service as Barbara is with JCWhitney.

Ron
