You must have done something Bad to somebody to get yourself kicked out of Portlandia and be exiled in Eugene....Welcome to the neighborhood. Come out to Quackers Last Stop on Wednesday evening and meet some of the locals. You'll normally find us there between 1600 and 1900. You could stay later but that is about all the battery capacity most of us have on our Hoverrounds. We wouldn't want to get stranded on the sidewalk and miss Jeopardy.

That's a Tedium? Only seen one in real life.

There's a few shops in Eugene. Some are even good. What brand/type are you interested in? I'm familiar with the KTM shop. Most are on west 11th st, BMW, KTM, Dune Goon, Independant Honda, Triumph and many Hardley clone shops. This is just in West Eugene. There is a Tractor/lawn care/honda/kaw/suzuki? shop in Springfield with rotating mechanics.

No thats no a Tedium- it's MY TDM!
specifically- removed lower fairing, smaller turn sign 80/20 tires custom seat.


Well hopefully a Yamaha friendly shop. My bike is kind of in a hole- not exactly an old school classic, it is also not a welcome sight at most dealer shops either due to its age. Also the issues ordering parts for anything besides the motor (which apparently used in some ATVs).

As a prior employee of Ramsey Waite do not, I repeat DO NOT go there. Your dollar is more effectively spent elsewhere.

Sears often puts Craftsman clickers on sale for as low as $50, but usually $60. List is $80.

I like mine, but I got them when they were still US made. The new ones look about the same, but are now made in China. Maybe still OK, or maybe....
