Happiness is a new Triumph not chain lube!
I only went into the shop to get some chain lube. Over an hour and £120 later I emerged with some bargain gloves, a bungee net, some cleaning gear, a tinted visor and info about great deals on half-a-dozen new bikes.
I forgot the chain lube. Trouble is, you often don’t realise what it is you need until you see it. And buying stuff, especially at a ‘special’ price is often just too tempting. If it’s half price you’ve officially saved yourself a fortune.
A clever bloke with glasses and a clipboard – and a stethoscope, probably – worked out that, on average, happiness increases by 0.1% for every pound you spend.
So, you could walk away from the Carole Nash MCN London Motorcycle Show very, very happy! There will be thousands of things packed within the walls of EXCEL that you never realised you needed (see the 40-page pullout guide inside this issue)!
And there will also be a stack of new bikes you never realised you could afford. But a free, posh coffee, from a knowledgeable and friendly sales advisor... just proved otherwise.
It’s not about being talked into something you don’t want. It’s about being exposed to something you didn’t realise you could have – £100 a month for a new Street Triple? Oh, yes please!
