    Default ROADSMITH was not at the Americade this season

    I went to the Americade rally, this season, 99% reason to go to the Roadsmith booth, to meet/speak/learn for the boys at R/Smith.....I was very disappointed to find that they did not attend the rally this year..... (I'm bummed ) I had some questions to ask....

    R/Smith, will you be attending next year??????

    Good luck with the question Ronnie, I have a feeling you'll not an answer. When Taylor Young was there, he'd always get a response out with good information, think he went over to Indian 2 or 3 years ago.

    Same here, no response after numerous inquiries.

    Good customer service is hard to find these days and that's unfortunate.

    I ran into a Roadsmith dealer from North Carolina at a Bike Night event in Saratoga Springs during Americade. He told me they were a no show. I took a demo ride with Taylor Young At Americade In 2015 an ordered my kit a month later. If had not been for that demo ride I would be riding another CSC Trike.

    Was this dealer UNB Customs from Denver, NC ? Really nice people there. I am taking my 2008 GL1800 to him this Saturday to have the R/S brake kit installed so the rear brakes will also actuate the front like the OEM set-up. This option was not available in 2014 when this kit was installed.

    Hi BOB, (now that we're friends lol)Thanks for the text by the way



    Yea, I was bummed to find that R/S was not there, for a few reasons that you already know...and one of them was to see if that "EXTRA" was really installed I still have no idea..

    Ronnie

    I'm not going to bash anyone on line

    I talked with the owner of UNB Customs about R/S not showing up at Americade. He told me that they are swamped with kit orders. They had a large shipment of parts and supplies arrive so it was all hands on deck to get orders out the door. I know if I was waiting for my kit I would be upset hearing that it was delayed due to company members showing up at a week long show. Just my two cents.

    Yes it was the owners of UNB Customs I spoke to in Saratoga Springs during Americade. They were really nice people. I only wish they were closer. The next time Iím traveling through North Carolina, Iíll be sure to stop and say hello .
