That story about the roadkill still amazes me, Mike. I don't blame you for carrying that firearm. Not at all.

So, is any new art gonna be on the site?

Haven't heard the story of the road kill , but did find a dead whippoorwill in one of the big flower pots outside the store a few weeks back. Pretty sure the poor thing simply flew into the window.

In fact, 7 days a week during season.






No, it's not a Glock. Melonite treated HK P7 PSP. No more dead animals on my door step from the local KKK welcome committee.

minimike

I just love that big head light. Do you think it would look out of place on my $600 TW200?

I look more like Bruce. The lack of hair that is.



The cool and expensive inventory isn't the reason I started packing. Never had a customer problem, no shop lifting, & never a bad check. I'd say 99.9% of my customers have been fantastic. The few customer problems have been riders pissed that I don't carry "Life Style" biker apparel. They have been very verbal about their not liking what I carry.

Dead animals on the door step, people running over my safety cones, locals in pick-ups trying to wing my customers with their mirrors, and a visit from the Chief of Police telling me to arm myself are the reason I carry. All the B.S. stopped as soon as I started packing. Just a very small group of locals that are known by me & the police.

I think it's kinda funny. They're all a lot bigger than me. I'm "minimike" for a reason.

Actually, it's just a couple benches. That's how few the trouble makers are.

A positive bit of info seems to have slipped through the cracks. Benton's Bacon biscuits. Once you've had Benton's Bacon you won't eat anything else. Let's focus on the bacon folks; there's a small contingent of bad people in everybody's town.

The smoked Benton Bacon Cheddar biscuits at Tellico Grains Bakery are amazing! I have a couple each week! It's nice being within walking distance to the bakery. They're the real reason I'm at the shop at 8am.

We only eat Benton bacon after I sampled it at the bakery, I bought the last pound they had. Ever since I found a place in Knoxville that always has it in stock, so just in case the Zombie's attack I buy 6 packages at a time

Oh and try Benton's country ham, it's almost gooder then their bacon

Oh and that guy that owns the motorcycle shop and wears a gun is pretty cool to hang with while in town. Add to that his awesometastic amazing wife makes a killer cup of coffee
