I wasn't sure what type of turn-out would come from that. Maybe Ill post a HERF and see how many ppl we get. My local has a pretty cool new room they are working on which could be a good venue, or maybe a destination herf

Bumped your Herf thread and invited one of the inmates from Joisey. Looking forward to meet, smoke and talk.

Where do you change your tires?

To all the LI finest... Who do you recommend and how much is a fair price for tubeless tire swap.
I do not have a bike stand not even a center stand so would prefer to leave the bike at the shop rather than removing the wheel...

Going rate for any shop is 35 bucks for a tire off the bike and 50 on.

Island Motorsports/KTM in Smithtown and Richuitti brothers in Bayport are the guys I use.

Pick yourself up a stand and with 2 tire changes it paid for itself.

I'm free in the eves if you need a hand.

50 bucks sounds so much better than a 100 for rear and 90 for a front I was told at Crazy Freddy.

And a helping hand is always welcomed with a cold one

I have the tires on order and started looking for a place to change 'em. This will be my first time around here

I'm on the Nassau/Suffolk boarder (right off exit 50) with pretty much all the tools you need.

Shoot me a PM when your trailwings come in and we will make some time. You can store your bike in my garage for as long as you like.

I bought my bike there. And this is a story.
The deal they gave me on three years old wee was too good to be true so I pulled my Mastercard and asked them to charge it. They said NO. I came back next day with permission slip from my wife to actually buy that bike. Again, asked them to charge it. They would agree with 10% markup... Long story short I bought at it their original price just to have some jackass manager on the phone three hours later telling me that there's no deal, my card didn't go through I didn’t sign some papers, bla, bla, bla. I said I have a bill of sale and the bike on driveway so FYYFF. In the evening a guy that sold it to me pulls in Auxiliary Police car dressed like a cop and gives me CC slip to sign. Explains that some idiot put a mileage instead of price in their books

I got a 2004 Wee-Strom with 3500 miles on it for $3500 back in 2007

Idiots! Just happen to drive by today and asked. But I would not risk a beating from you Dave

I bought my tires from formula 1 and got free mounting in April. Give it a try if there slow they might bite. I stayed with the Trailwings on my Wee.

Normaly I would reccomend Nations Cycles in Hempstead but this year they decided to charge me $10 for a $6 state inspection. After 3 years and about $2k I no longer shop there or reccommed to friends. Hope the $4 they profited was worth it.

Good job fuckin over Crazy Freddys. Cant think of a dealer that deserves it more.

Any opinions on Mineolamoto? I purchased some parts from them in the past at the internet prices (store pick up) but I wonder how they do otherwise...
