To the point
Orderd and payed for a pole about 2 weeks after Daytona
After about 6 diffrent excuses why it took so long I paid for 2 day shipping to get it for the Lone Star freeride 4/6.
I wont go into all modifications that it took being a 500.00 set up
I rode the ski late march to find the pole was a -5.5 I payed for a -2
I offered to send the pole back in exchange for a -2
I pay shipping Eat the black PC and the grips(bars wont accept ODI)
I get a e-mail back he will make a plate to make up the diffrence and send me the right size bars 4/20
To this day I have not seen the plate or the bars,but
I do have all kinds of reasons why.
Im not riding with it nor will I Goose you should live up to your word. I was letting you off by fabbing up one those really complicated turnplates.
Some humans just suck

I cant say that my experience was much better, I got the runaround for the longest time until I made public posts.... Lots of modification to work, my cables are getting torn slam up from the pole... I would have spent the extra $$$ on an x-metal if I could do it all over again.
Took almost 4 months to recieve the pole , he said he was going to send another turnplate holes for the clamps wrong and too short . Still nothing . If I knew I would have also spent the extra and bought an x-metal .
received a pole that is not centered, the turn plate speaks for itself as an amateur job...
he made promises for replacing the parts, and never kept them.

Same thing happend to me. I ordered a pole from him before daytona recieved it about 4 months after daytona. The turn plat sucked azz so i ordered a x metal plate and used the "goose bars" whick i had to modify my odi grips to fit. the bars were straight for one ride and now they like like 4 degree bars. I told goose about it and he said "ill ship you a new better set of bars today, i am going to ups in an hour" 4 months later and still no bars! I busted a chin pad which is supposed to be covered against breaking for life. he sent me a new one, it was a square sheet of mat glass that had what looked to be a chin pad made of resin in the middle of it! raw uncut chin pad is what you get if you break one and tell him about it. Now this dude is making hulls!!!!!!!????? WOW!!!! Oh i forgot the first pole he sent me after waiting 4 months was bent, it was welded with a twist in it. it was so bad that if you were to put a plate and bars on it the bars would touch the hood on the left side. I still have the pole. he said i could keep it. YIPPEE, THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! lol

If it makes anyone feel any better, I purchased, or attempted to purchase a goose pole from Bill on March 4th, 2009, so over 9 months ago. I payed him $450 through paypal, and never received anything. I corresponded with him all summer long over x-h20 private messaging, and every time he told me he'd have it shipped by the end of the week. He was always very apologetic, but that doesn't fix the fact that I never received what I payed for and am now out $450. Now it appears he is no longer on this website. Does anyone know how to get a hold of him or is this a lost cause? I'd try and dispute the payment with paypal, but its been almost a year and I don't think there is much they can do. Thanks to anyone who can help
