The bad penny's back
« on: May 22, 2024, 01:11:27 pm »
Hey guys ...

Following the move from BMW Motorrad to KTM at Chester ... sadly in January we were made redundant...

However, it's all worked out great as I have secured a part time role at Triumph Chester, as a greeter, so I don't have any sales pressure any longer and can just chat with customers and prospective customers :D

Working Wed, Thur, Fri and Sat in the summer and two days in winter :D

Steve Parry
Greeter @ Triumph Chester
Oppressed since 1958

Current fleet: '14 F800GS, '87 R80RS, '03 R1100S BoxerCup, '90 K1 .... '15 R12RT LC LE :D

Ah that's great! I like it when the greeter knows stuff!

I encountered a strange one elsewhere recently, who literally whispered "... Would you like a coffee or a tea?..." at me. Having just got off a motorcycle that makes noise, I had to ask her to repeat herself a couple of times.

Thankfully I was rescued by someone else!

Next time we do a Wales ride we'll have to pop in :).

Hey Steve, I thought you had shuffled off your mortal glad to hear that you are still with us and obviously enjoying life.

Who knew that bike dealers had greeters  :)
