Just got the bike back from JCS...Review here

Mods, feel free to move this thread if need be.

I'll try to make this short, went to a automotive shop to drop off some car parts I was selling to the owners nephew. Nobody was there so I rode around the area to kill time and found a bike shop. Decided to go in and check it out. The owner Jody came and introduced himself and looked at my bike and gave me some pointers and prices on some things I needed done.
Two weeks later I decided to get some work done so I called them up and told them I was bringing the bike in tomorrow for fork seals so they ordered the parts. I drop off the bike and they said I should get the pads done because oil had gotten on them. I got pads done, brake flush and new fork seals. His pricing was awesome.
Jody and Todd took the time to answer all my questions and ever shoot the shit with me. They are very fair and very honest guys and run a great business. I just got back from picking the bike up and they did everything and more than what I had asked them to do. Even while talking to them Todd went and grabbed a rag to wipe down the lower fairing where it had some dirt on it.
Out of 5 stars I give them 5. This is by far the best experience I have ever had when dropping a car/bike off to have fixed. Needless to say I will recommend them to all my friends and I even told them I will be back to get some more work done. I can't say enough good things about their service and friendliness.
Thanks again guys.

Great to know of a new shop that does great work, but 'garden center'? I'm guessing not too many hardtail panheads hanging out there...

The building area is called garden center because it's on Central and Garden.
