Most importantly, we have a clean rest room! The rest room even has some cold medicine & aspirin in the cabinet.

Waiting on the FrogTog rep to come around to sign me up.

The new line of First Gear under gear is on order & will be here soon! Not that we've needed it yet, it's been really warm for October.

Had a couple guys from Canada in this morning. One of them was on a really neat little Honda 125R. He said it was aropund $4000 Canadian out the door. This thing is tiny! It must be a riot on the dragon.
yep. I thought you probably did but I didn't see that in your pics.

I worked as a business start-up consultant for some time and it was amazing to me to see how many people will open a store underfunded so it ends up looking more like a yardsale (you know, folding tables, posters, and maybe one clothing waterfall stuck in tecenter of the room) till they get vendor accounts and some cash flow going.

the thing that amazes me even more is the guy who opens a store with no clue of what their core customers' needs, wants, or attitudes are. congratulation, looks like you got that part down. I'll be swinging by sometime soon...

Good shop

Recently bought from them by telephone. A five-star experience. Definitely recommended. When can we expect a branch here in Yellowstone/Teton Country, a.k.a. God's Country?

Thumb Great Shop

My wife and I stopped by last Saturday after riding the Cherohala Skyway and what a nice shop. Mike is a heck of nice guy and even offered some nice discounts for the ADV Rally. The store is well stocked and easy to find.

Best of luck Mike and I hope to make some of the rides this spring.

A very nice shop indeed.

Mike was really great to chat with and how neat is it to be able to stop in a store in one of the best riding areas east of the Mississippi and to be able to walk out the door with the lastest in ADV Rider appearal.

Thumb Must See!

Stopped by Saturday morning while spending a few days at Hunt's Lodge in Tellico Plains. Well laid out & equipped shop - tastefully done - nicest motorcycle gear shop I've been in - puts many BMW & Harley ones to shame! Got an ADVRider ballcap for the missus - the "gathering" the weekend before had diminished his ADV swag a good bit, but Mike was going to reorder soon.

Coop
I've got some benches on order with a motorcycle theme & already have a small frig for the soda's just haven't gotten it hooked up yet. Both will be taken care of in the next week or two. I'll have a couple tables on the side of the shop in the Spring.

I also have a portable air compressor for customers to use too!

Well we've restocked ADV gear since being wiped out by the Airhead guys! The ADV Texas Orange Ride t-shirts were decimated.

One thing that came in right after the rally were the new shop long sleeve t-shirts.

An airhead of sorts, a R25 or R27. Not sure which, but I realy liked the photo. We've modified it a little for Tellico Plains. Then there's the sidecar rig on the front.



Back This guy is an ADV rider!



Front (picture is blured, I ingnored the camera's idiot warning light)



$19.95 shipped

my cousin and i stopped by yesterday after a nice ride on the Skyway. it was colorful and beautiful and (mostly) unclogged. in fact, we were hardly impeded all day. it was grand.



anyway, cuz finally bought himself a pair of saddlebags and a tankbag, nice wolfman stuff. i've often heard raves about that brand but never seen it in a shop before. quality kit. sweet shop, great service, top guy. good to meetcha Mini!

i'll be looking forward to cracking open that fridge next time, i should have gotten a Red Bull before i left.

Love the new gloves Mike. Hopefully, the HP2 will be fixed in time for the DOG Tellico rally.

I fully intend to scoop up a pair of those gloves at the "non rally rally" as Mike calls it.

Well, didn't get any gloves this go-round, but definitley went on a mini shopping spree as I think a few other DOGs did this weekend. Thanks again Mike for everything and I'll bug you about gloves and Wolfman tool rolls in December!
