Hey Mike, does The Abbey stock Amsoil 10W40 Motorcycle oil?
Or maybe someplace else nearby? Thanks.
Will be your way in about 3 weeks.

Oh-h-h.



I thought that was just how BMW riders were going to start coping with final driver failures - bring a spare bike.

Well I had the honor of meeting Mike on July 4th. I was passing through on a long (10,000 mile) bike trip and just got home yesterday. I had no puter acsess on my trip and just want to thank you Mike (belated) for letting me change my oil at your shop when you didnt feel good and had a cold. Thanks again friend. You is one of those good guys we hear about.

I will post a trip report much later about my lil adventure.
That Haul Road wasn't as bad as I had heard and read about.
Top of The World was much worse in a thunder hailstorm and
very overhung from The Midnite Sun Bar the night before.

Here is just one of about 700 pics from your great state.
