You thought with your emotions.

You want dependable? Buy a Yamaha or a Harley. You want to jack-around with the bike all the time? Buy something made in the '70s and has been sittin' since the '80s, or buy Chinese.

From Vento's website:

"Thanks to our high quality, Vento products are approved by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (DOT), and certified by both the EPA and the California Air Resources Board, meeting the strictest emission regulations. Our solid effort in using the newest technologies make this possible and it reflects in our mission of providing people with first-class motorcycles at affordable prices. "

That's it? Having USDOT certification "proves" your bikes have high quality? LOL! Fiat 850 Spyders had USDOT and CARB certification too. So did Triumph TR7s. ROTFLMAO!!

Yeah but Fiats and Triumphs were cool!

You bought a Vento because you're a cheapskate who would jack off his dad to cheat his mom out of a piece of ass. The lesson is simply put "You get what you pay for" You paid for a cheap piece of Chinese crap and that's exactly what you got.

You asked what made you buy it - I answered: You thought with your emotions, not your head.

Perhaps I shouldn't have added what I did, but the truth of the matter is - the Chinese-made products that are flooding this country are still not "up to par" with products from other nations.

I'm sorry to hear about your Father - I've lost my own as well, to an industrial accident.

So far as the bike being in boxes - you have a few options.

*Get onto the dealer, hound them until they put it back-together, ride away.

*Get your boxes of parts from the Dealer, essentially shout them down if they want you to "pay" for the so-called "work" they've done to it (insult to injury here). Find a manual, put the thing back-together yourself. This requires at least some small skill with mechanics, and a willingness to learn more skills. It also requires a space to do this (smaller than you might think), and at least a minimal set of tools.

*Gather-up the parts, have some OTHER dealer or mechanic (or trusted mechanic-minded friend) put it back-together for you. This requires tact and something between a small and a large heap of cash.

*Gather-up the parts, sell it to some mechanic-minded individual for whatever you can get for it; use that money to help fund another motorcycle (it won't be much, I can assure you).

*Give the Dealer the Finger, and walk away. You may or may not have some recourse in say a small-claims court. That's between you, your Diety, and your Dealer.

yeah well don't we all.....

I appreciate your service and I'm sorry for your loss, while you were still crapping your nappies I was keeping your ass safe from the Russians. I guess we're even. The cheapskate remark was an old joke, I assumed you'd get it.

If you've got something to say then feel free, the bottom line is you bought a box full of Chinese scrap metal. I don't what you're supposed to do with it, If it was me I'd throw it off a bridge and see how big a splash it would make.

If you think you were doing the Christian thing to buy it then the point was to give money to the church, the fact that what you got in return for that money has no material value is beside the point

Thank you.

Thank you for your service and welcome home! I put in 21 years so I was "Crappin' my nappies" at the beginning of "Nam" and I'm pushin' 50 now. You are 100% correct about dealing with the dealer, but he will not take my calls. I hope to make contact with a national rep. or the home company.I would love to call in some artillery on his shop. At least the money was used for good.Anyone know where I can find a book on this bike?This "dealer" said He couldn't get me one, last year! I have an old Honda Rebel 250 that runs great, so at least I have something to ride. The remarks about my parents were juvinile and out of line, for a moderator you should know this, just my opinion.Out, Flash.

As I said it was meant as a joke, I'm sorry you were offended. I can't do anymore than that. As an FYI, you seem thin skinned and easily upset, those aren't attributes that will serve you well here. We're all adults a couple of us are Vets we even have a Viet Nam loony with a bunch of guns at his house and we take and flip each other sh*t all the time, you may want to bear that in mind, ok? it's all in fun.

That doesn't change anything with the Vetnro though, you're not going to get any kind of satisfaction out of that deal, it's as simple as that. Just write it off and be done with it.

It just might be time for some class action lawsuits against these firms that promise everything and instead sell junk.
