So many posts on the site are about poor service and bad luck (I've posted a couple myself!) that I wanted to share with y'all my awesome experience with Alpine Motor Sport in Salmon Arm...
I rode to Calgary for the Stampede last week, took 4 days getting there exploring lots of twisty roads in the Southern Interior and the Rockies. Had a blast watching the absolutely crazy chuckwagon races and then headed back to Vancouver along the Trans-Canada.
I got a flat tire in Sicamous between Revelostoke and Salmon Arm at about 4:30 in the afternoon. The local tire shop wouldn't put a temp plug in but did call Alpine Motor Sport in Salmon Arm for me to see if they had a new tire. They did...and they were willing to come get me and my bike. I was blown away that they were willing to travel almost an hour round-trip to get me and my bike at the end of the business day. The next morning they had the new tire on faster than they said it would take, plus they had lubed and adjusted my chain.
So thanks to Dean, Darren and Julien...you guys are first rate...hopefully some board members can meet them under better circumstances and buy a ton of stuff from them!
