On the other hand..................

Hunter Cycles in Thornwood has always impressed me. Small shop, very knowledgeable, reasonable pricing. Bought 2 Yamahas from them.

Dutchess Rec has sold me 2 vehicles - The CBR100RR and the new waverunner. Good experience both times. I just received a check in the mail because they had overcharged me 15 bucks on the registration fee. I would have never known.
I went in a few days before the end of July to buy a water ski vest for the wife. Took it to the salesman to pay for it, and he says they are going on sale on August 1st, but he'll give me the discount now.

I also like both shops because they don't try any of the high pressure sales BS like pushing extended warranties.

+1

When I lived close by until last year, I used to take my tires there to be mounted and balanced. They had no problem with my bringing mail order tires in, charged a fair price, $25, and didn't scratch my rims.

Nice Mom and Pop shop, literally, with a nice attitude.

Another good family run shop is Hudson Valley Motorcycles in Ossining. Will bargain on purchase prices, good repairs quality wise, and now a Ducati dealer in addition to Suzuki and Kawasaki.

I got a great deal on a ZX-6R at New Milford Cycles. (They've since closed.)

Good deal on a Speed Triple and awesome customer service at Canton Cycles in Winsted. (Closed)

Good price and easy sale on a Tiger 800XC at Gengras Harley Davidson in East Hartford. (They don't sell Triumph anymore. I bought the last one.)

If you all pitch in, I'll buy a bike from Danbury Powersports and put them out of our misery.

Thank you Bill Gates for giving me something to do on this otherwise dull and boring day. I can perform MS Updates on all 5 windows machines. Woo Woo.



In other news: MS Surface Tablet has been a failure, so - like so many attempts at hardware (ZUNE anyone?) - rather than just giving up, they will try version 2.0.

These boys can just piss money away like the government.

GATES FOR PRESIDENT 2016!!!

It's better than waking up and opening iPhoto to find that your photo library (all the way back to the beginning of digital cameras) has been deleted. And yes, Apple knows about the bug, "but it's not that big of a deal because it effects so few users."
Yah, well fuck you Apple

I've been a hard core Apple user since 1983, and have never personally owned any other brand of computer, that is about to end.

I know, my bad for not being obsessive about backups, but WTF, they know about the bug.

PC based computing, welcome to my home. Now the question is do I sell my Macbook, or take the satisfaction of riding over it with my bike???
Or better yet
Now back to your regular programing
