Wanna be is right. The store owners are smart enough to know that there's appeal there to some, and of course it works for them.

You know...they'll even hire the wannabees to do their dirty laundry.

We ain't moving into Kelowna they said....yeah right they just waited a couple years, time to buy some fronts then the sign went up on the clubhouse.

What's next? a clothing store for the wannabees?

Someone could spend a few hours there:

this thread is better suited in the Canada forum, letting the local inmates chime in..

I used to live two blocks over from the store on Logan. The location used to be a mechanical supply place called SPEED!

I thought all drug dealers bought carwashes to launder their money?

My favorite are the guys driving big pick up trucks out here with Sons of Anarchy stickers on the back window.

And there is way more I won't say here....Fuck them!

But just a few years ago one of them in full colors stopped at the small remote restaurant where I was having lunch. Asked about the next gas station....still a little ways I said but I happen to have a full gas can in my car if you think you need some.He declined politely.

GP open....??? Hardly ever when I ride by.Sure wasn't Sunday a couple weeks ago when I rode it to check out the new pavement. Owner is a p...k and nobody wants to work for him so cutbacks on opening hours. And Celia is closed in Cherryville. Eat at the Laughing Lama in Lumby on the way.

My gas can??? Must have had good "marked" Premium in it. Don't know about the HA, maybe he should have taken some, no Premium gas in Cherryville,just the marked stuff and that's illegal for road use. Poor Harley.....

Funny their new store in Toronto....formerly the "Speed" Mechanical shop. Does that make it now a Methaniacal shop....after all that's a big part of their business the speed thing.

Wow, so much negativity. The only reason I ever got into biking was so that I can join one day. Trade in my KLR on a bitchin' hardtail with suicide shift and the loudest pipes any of you girly-men have ever heard. When your ears start to bleed, then you'll know who's boss... No more riding around on a dual-sport with a tent strapped on the back checking out new and cool places, having fun and riding for the sheer pleasure. I'm gonna ride that hog around in brand new (but 'distressed') leathers giving the likes of you the stink-eye, and dating strippers. I won't even acknowledge your presence any more, I'll be so bad. Yeah, and I won't forget which of you have dissed me and my future bros in this thread either!

Google street view still has the "Speed" store front.
