I went there to check out their gear and heard that they give big amount of savings if you make a package.
Their sales person "Nathan" is extremely helpful and knowledge. He knows what size you should be getting and shows you around of the things he recommends to get for safe riding.
So I prepared up a list of the gear I want and went to see what kind of deal they would give me. They showed me 3 prices of each item, first prices were the "regular prices" which is outrageously expensive, then they showed me the "sale price". Then they showed me the "package price".
I preferred them to cut that crap out and get straight to the point.
Experience with them is 7.5/10. I think I met the boss, Murray, was pretty rude when Nathan escorted me to the back door since I parked in the back. "Where do you think your going?"
got my Astars suit for cheaper at modern than revzilla. it wasnt an old suit that they had to get rid of either, they ordered it in and it was 70 bucks cheaper than the states. plus with the shit ass exchange rate now it makes more sense to buy canadian if the price difference isnt too much
edit: and murray is a complete douche. although i think a lot of older ppl will tell you that he did a lot for the vancouver motorcycling scene, it doesn't excuse him from his questionable business practices.
seen murray's work on restoration. His knowledge and skills make up for his lack of humour at times. He comes from the school of hard knocks. His ability and connections are worth getting to know him and his son.
Dealt with Aaron, Nate and Jessie. They're all really chill people.
I think the lasting impression that's made me a repeat customer was when I just started riding a while back. One of the things that irked me was the "motorcyclist elitisism". (This is so thick in BCSB when i lurked that forum when i was researching getting into riding).
Anyways in general, all motorcycle shops are really pleasant to deal with but out of all, i find these guys are just really chill and down-to-earth to deal with. Posted via RS Mobile
the only thing i didn't like about owning an old bike was that if i wanted parts, or work done, i HAD to go to murray... he's the only one that has the parts and is willing to touch an old bike lol.
I purchase a lot of gear and parts from Modern, have yet to try their service dept. Maybe if I had an old Norton/Vincent or vintage British of some kind.
For old bikes, Cypress Motorbike www.cypressmotorbike.com/ is highly recommended. Darcy is able to do very extensive and difficult work. He's brought 3 bikes back to life for me -- and he has a dynotune. I've also had work done from Rising Sun Motorcycles who are also pretty cool. Posted via RS Mobile
