    I have one I know the perfect guy to work on your bike, you! Start reading and start learning, the LC8's are barely a blip on most dealers radars and you can get more educated if you spend a few hours a week here or in the HOW. Plus you actually give a fuck about the bike and doing it right.

    Triplenickel's right!! You give a fuck more than anyone in any dealer ever will!! Learn how to turn a wrench, have fun taking care of your fat Austrian... That way, you KNOW everything will be taking care of properly...

    As an added bonus you'll be better prepared for the inevitable trailside repairs in a remote spot.
