    NO WE DON'T STOCK ANY F#@KING BELLS!

    I think if one non-ATGATT person comes in and asks for bells I'm going to loose it. How a friggin bell made in China by a part-time communist is going to save your ass is beyond me.

    Sorry guys.

    Never saw this post but stumbled across the store on a day ride while at the Honda Hoot in Knoxville. My buddy Ron from Texas really enjoyed the visit .... spent some $$ and then had cobbler and ice cream across the street! Does not get much better!

    Thanks Guys!

    Ed, thanks for coming in & tell Ron thanks too!

    Flux, I'll be ready for some :freaky this weekend, what's your poison?

    I had been in bed for a few days (under doctor's orders) when this idiot came in. He actually gave me shit for not having angel bells to protect him & his bike. If it hadn't been for my semi-drugged state I think I would have responded better. It wasn't until he left that I realized how stupid the whole conversation was. In fact I can feel an anti-dumbassbiker rant building up, so I better change the subject.

    We try to cram as much real gear into the shop as the budget allows. As we scrape together a few more nickels, we add more stuff like ROK straps & Klim apparel. Armor & a new line of boots are on my short list.

    Most all the products you had when we stopped in was quality stuff. In addition the directions and road advice was FREE! Don't get much better. Well ... maybe ... you could hand out coupons for free ice cream from the shop across the street :rofl

    On the ride home I could not help thinking ... why didn't I think to open such a shop in such a great location? :huh

    Good luck and I will be stopping in again!

    Me and my riding buddy Chris stopped by last month; one of the best m/c stores I have ever been in. There are also some good restaurants within walking distance for anyone riding through Tellico looking for food. Like they say; live to ride, ride to eat. :lol3

    Not yet. My brother came up from GA & we've been riding for the last 4 days.

    I'll get them ordered; however, I doubt they will be in till next week now.

    Looks like pretty neat shop you got going. Maybe you need some signs to warn off unwanted clientel...from a friends shop in Northern Arkansas...there were others, but this was a favorite.

    We received a small shipment from Wolfman today. There were 3 of the M803 Peak Tail Bags in the shipment. Tom & I are both using these on our bikes (HP2 & R1200GS) & really like them. Eric at Wolfman has really come up with a neat tail bag in the Peak. There are 7 different ways to attach the bag to a bike. The bag expands, has 2 compression straps on the inside to keep cargo from bouncing around, has a pocket on the inside on the flap, and has a bungee cord on the top of the flap. There are also 2 D-rings to attach other items to, or add a shoulder strap. The bag is semi-rigid; there's a stiffen on the inside that can be replaced if it's damaged. $99.95
