Yes. (I kid)

HRHD is a nice place though. Cool parts guys too.

Richmond Superbike has their shit in a pile as well, just so you know.

Yes, I work at a motorcycle shop. No, I won't say which one, because I don't think I need to. What I WILL say though, is that I appreciate those of you who come in, and I'm glad to help you out in any way I can.

To those of you who don't come in... well... I'd like the chance to change whatever opinions you might have, and help you out in any way that I can.

Although I do find amusement in hearing about people's experiences with us, knowing how things actually went down. It's funny to me.

But seriously, if you guys are looking for something, ANYTHING, parts related, let me know. Tires, chains, oil, horsepower, whatever... let me know. If you know someone who's selling it cheaper, tell me, and I can try and match or even BEAT it.

I don't say this to make money. I say this to provide a service to my fellow two-wheelers.

It is cool that your job and one of your passions are aligned. That is a privilege many don't get.

That auto clutch stuff has me intrigued. I think it would be pretty cool for as much time as I spend in base traffic. Also, as we age the effort on the clutch can be an issue. I've read alot about the VFR and it seems to be well received.

Good luck with the sale.

You can swap out the master cylinder with a gen 1. Much less effort I hear. The new power commander wil also let u upshift with no clutch

I parked the GSA under the oak tree. We shall see if Progressive is as good as they say...

Going to really test how well a cycleshelter does in the hurricane...

I took mine down. My bike is in my brother's garage, and the CycleShell is folded up in the back of my truck. I'm not willing to take a chance.
