    Hi Mike, I met you several weeks ago on a Sat and you showed me the new taillight on your Duc 620. I have an 07 Duc MS. Just put it on and it is great and such an easy install. It came from Mototuner and I highly recommend it, Thanks for your help.

    I stopped at mike's shop last week and picked some very nice soft bags for the bike. He has a great shop and always very helpful! Sure wish it was not so far from home.

    There will be a couple Triumph 1200 adventure bikes stopping by the shop today around noon if anyone wants to drop by to see them.

    I'll post a few pictures.

    Stopped by the shop and picked up some new Klim gear on my way through on vacation south to the Keys....

    BIG Kudos to Mike, the way he runs the shop is first rate

    :clap

    Another HAPPY customer and thought I should let you all know that dealing with Mike is a pleasure, and it's worth the drive over.....

    Oh Yeah, his wife Cherie makes a killer Milkshake too!

    Cheers!

    Cherie was jealous of your trip to the Keys! We love going snorkeling there. Thanks for the business!

    No not yet. My buddy got a Green 8V a few weeks ago. :evil

    I really need to try out a Norge though. The MTS 620 isn't making Cherie too happy.

    Mike, I just wanted to thank you for your help in selecting gear for my son and I. We were in your store on Sunday 5/13. We rode over from Blue Ridge MC Campground in the rain. You set him up with pants gloves and a helmet and I got a pair of boots. It was a pleasure doing business with you and my old boots arrived at my house before I did. Thank You.

    Thanks for all the love guys!

    We're having an exciting year adding more gear & expanding our Klim inventory! There's another large shipment of Klim that will be here on Friday. Only fly in the ointment is that my D30 armor order is a week out. Klim says they won't have it to ship until the 25th.

    Dropped by the Store last weekend on the way to the Vstrom Rally at the Ironhorse. I needed some ROK Straps......Mike had just rec'd a new shipment........and his price was about $3-$4 cheaper than the same ones I purchased on Ebay (well, actually locally in B'ham off Ebay) earlier last week. Tons of apparel in the shop. I was taken back when I saw Mike was "packin a piece" on his hip. I asked one of the locals about it when I was eating lunch at the Bakery around the corner (and the Bakery is HIGHLY recommended..........Yummy!!!).........asked him if Mike had been robbed lately or was crime a problem around these parts?? He said........"Oh......No.......no crime around here." I asked him why Mike "was packin"..........he responded by saying EVERYONE around there packs a piece......that's why there is no crime..........EVERYONE has a gun and everyone knows it !!!!! And the local feller had one in his back pocket.........:lol3

    The bakery is world famous now after the 15 minute review on the Travel Channel! :clap It's those smoked Benton Bacon cheddar biscuits! :evil


    I was a little curious today since this is our 5th year in business & a lot of people have commented on how stuffed the shop is. So I took a quick walk around.

    As of the end of business today, we had 134 pairs of men's pants and 93 men's jackets in stock.

    and, it was a killer sales day today!

    Just sayin

    THANKS FOR ALL THE BUSINESS!

    Our website will be under construction this week.

    So before the rumors start, we're still here.

    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.
