Mount Kisco-Area Tire Store Manager Wins Harley-Davidson Motorcycle in Monroe Shocks and Struts Promotion

Vincent Papa, manager of Mavis Discount Tire in Mt. Kisco, NY, didn’t believe it when he heard he had won a national sweepstakes drawing for a new Harley-Davidson motorcycle from Monroe Shocks and Struts.

Vincent Papa, manager of Mavis Discount Tire in Mt. Kisco, NY, didn’t believe it when he heard he had won a national sweepstakes drawing for a new Harley-Davidson motorcycle from Monroe Shocks and Struts.

“My daughter and I were leaving the store for lunch together when a Monroe employee told me that I was the lucky winner,” Papa said. “I thought one of my buddies was playing a joke on me so I made him show me I.D. before I believed him. It was pure luck.”

Awarded through the Monroe brand’s national “Ticket2Ride” promotion for automotive service professionals, Papa’s new Harley-Davidson Softail FLSTFI Fat Boy motorcycle was presented during a ceremony recently at Mavis Discount Tire. “I was the fortunate one! At fifty, I’m learning how to ride a motorcycle, but my wife won’t ride with me for another few months,” Papa said.

The Ticket2Ride promotion required the completion of program scorecards through the sale and installation of Monroe premium shocks and struts, including Sensa-Trac® and Monroe Reflex®. Monroe products are manufactured and marketed by Tenneco Automotive. Papa’s name was drawn from thousands of grand-prize sweepstakes entries for the grand-prize.

“Vinny didn’t believe it when we told him,” said Tenneco Automotive Aftermarket Programs Manager Sheryl Bomia. “But he was more than happy when we kept telling him – and he realized his friends didn’t set him up – that he was the lucky winner of a new Harley from Monroe.”

Active Ride Control Diagnostics

The key to servicing these systems is proper information and understanding precisely how these systems operate.

In the 1990s, adjustable valve shocks and struts were all the rage. These systems had two or three comfort and sport settings that could be changed with buttons on the dash. These systems played the role of firming up the suspension if the driver wanted a sporty feel while driving.
These systems have evolved to the point where they can actively change dampening characteristics in milliseconds. Active dampening or suspension control systems can be found on luxury Asian and European vehicles. But, some of the larger mainstream SUVs and minivans augment the stability control system, as some of these systems work in conjunction with air ride.
These systems usually go unnoticed until there is a problem or when a message is sent to the instrument cluster, indicating there is a fault with the system. Swapping parts on these systems and using guesswork to diagnose a problem will usually result in an angry customer and an annoyed parts supplier. The key to servicing these systems is proper information and understanding precisely how these systems operate.
