Yeah...support your local bike shop so they don't close
I don't care whether it's me, Ken, Turn 1, Lithium, etc.
Let me ask you this.....is it worth it to talk to a reputable shop that will give you GOOD ADVICE and save you TONS of money in the long run if you deal with them even though it may cost a few bucks more?????
Prime example.....call an internet retailer up that gives stuff away and ask them about suspension or exhausts on what to buy, why, service, etc..... I can tell you what works and what doesn't because we have tested the bulk of them. If I don't know I know who to call....like Chuck Graves personally if I've got a question....that's the value of supporting you locals whoever that may be.
We sell Powercommanders for $270.
I'm sorry but this gets me a little fired up when I can save a guy $500-$5,000 in a 10 minute conversation and customers will sell you out to save $5.
Just my rant for the day
That's why motorcycle businesses keep closing.
If I sat in my underwear everyday from home with my "Internet Store" with no shop overhead....I too could sell a $1,200 pipe for $40 over cost.
