I visited my local Kawasaki dealer because I believe in supporting the local brick and mortar whenever possible.
It's not a small shop. It's as big as a damn Costco.
All I wanted was a gallon of Kawasaki 10W-40.
They had YamaLube, HondaLube, SuzukiLube, KTMLube, SpectroLube, PurpleLube and a handful of others in gallons. They had quarts
of Kawasaki 10W-40 for $8.
They didn't have gallons of 10W-40.
9 times out of 10, over the past 10 years, they don't have what I come in for. I swear, I do my part but ya cain't sell what ya don't have. And telling me that they can have it in a couple of days and I can drive my sorry ass back over there won't cut it. It's not like they don't have the square footage to stock stuff. They have their own damn road
right inside the building, painted right there on the floor!
When these sorry bastiches showed up, carrying Suzuki, Honda, Kawasaki, Yamaha, KTM, Polaris and I don't know what all else, they ran about 5 locals out of buisness over the next few years.
Would somebody please call the Wahmbulance? I need a ride.
