    Burnaby Kawasaki saves a stranded Sewman


    The Guys at Burnaby Kawasaki Save Another Stranded Desperate Biker

    Burnaby, BC (BCSportbikes Daily) October 2nd, 2004 - It was in the evening of this beautiful, sunny Saturday when the battery of Jason Sew's (aka Sewman) 1998 Suzuki TLS died, leaving him stranded in the BCIT parking lot with no way of getting home, no source of coffee or junkfood nearby and nobody to talk to.

    After numerous failed attempts at bump starting his motorcycle, Sewman started to panic. He was hungry, cranky and worst of all, embarrassed as all of these cute girls walked by and watched his feeble, yet mildly entertaining runs up and down the student parking lot. Sweating and panting, he reached for his barely functional cell phone and dialed a few towing companies without any luck. The towing companies either refused to handle motorcycles, were too busy or were closed. With only one bar of battery showing on his cell, there was only one last resort. BURNABY KAWASAKI.

    Manny, service manager for Burnaby Kawasaki answered the phone, "We're closed, and I have to get back home to watch The Apprentice! What do you want from me?"

    Sewman explained his situation, "Help Manny, I'm stuck in the BCIT parking lot with a dead battery. I have no coffee or junkfood and there's nobody to talk to!"

    After Sewman explained his dire situation, Manny eagerly hopped into the BKmobile and promptly zoomed over to Sewman's ailing moto in the BCIT parking lot.

    "Don't worry Jay, we'll get her heart going in no time." With that, Manny loaded the bike into the rear, smacked Sewman upside the shoulder and continued back home to watch The Apprentice.

    The next evening, Sewman's TLS was personally delivered back to his doorstep with a clean bill of health - the battery fully charged and ready to go. Manny was offered beer, money, some potstickers etc. as a token of appreciation but he declined, happily smacked Sewman upside the shoulder and bid his farewell.

    This exemplary show of customer service cannot go unnoticed. It is my moral duty and pleasure to once again recommend the services of Burnaby Kawasaki to anybody who appreciates a group of genuine motorcycle guys.

    Sparring speed is a matter of simple physics:
    The height of your flight is inversely proportionate to the mass of your ass.

    I love stories with happy endings...

    They were always great to me when I brout my Kawasaki there.
    But because I live downtown and own a Honda, it was just too inconvenient for me to get out there.
    Alex from Honda Centre actually drove to my place to help me deal with my bike one evening after work when it wouldn't start. That wasn't too bad either!

    Great to hear about some outstanding service when we do stupid things to our bikes!

    I've been praising BK to anyone who'd listen for the last 10 years. They are the best dealership I've ever had the pleasure of dealing with!

    Heck, back when I was a skinny little kid on a skateboard, they didn't mind the hours I spent drooling over the bikes, just waiting to become old enough to get a license! Sure enough, they've made a great business on that kindness and congeneality!

    Reformatted to fit your screen.

    keep up the great work BK, great story.
    If jack helped you off a horse would you help jack off a horse??

    You start with a bag full of luck and an empty bag of experience. The trick is to fill the bag of experience before you empty the bag of luck.

    Great! Y'all really should get some BCAA coverage. The second package is a about a 100 bucks a year, with 6 tow, and they can be car or bike. They send the Drake towing truck that can do bikes.... Worth the money IMHO. I use it to bring my race bike to the shop cause I have no truck to use
