    I'm looking for a shop in the St. John's area that'll change the oil on the Wee on Saturday afternoon.
    Freshwater Suzuki's service department is closed on Saturday.

    I should add I can change the oil myself, I'd just rather not do it a parking lot :beer

    What Fred Said.

    @damurph is as they say in Newfoundland, "da best kind, bye". He would have all the accoutrements you require to change your oil. And then feed you besides.

    @rtwpaul liked almost everything, save the Seal Flipper Pie.

    Go to Canadian Tire and get the oil and filter. Then drive around till you see someone with a detached garage with the doors open, and if it looks like they have tools, pull in.

    George will change the oil, while Wanda will make you supper.

    I''m being serious, it's that easy.

    I can send you to my folks but they're in Salmon Cove, near Carbonear, 1hr from St. John's. It's a nice ride to get there if you stay the coast.

    Nothing so dramatic. Couple of riders from Ottawa were getting the tour and on the morning they left we did two oil changes.

    You can swing by here and I'll help/watch you change your oil. I'm an hour out of St john across the border in Maine. The one hour is pavement but if you are not in a rush you can ride dirt from the border to here.

    wrong city. She is in St. John's. The s is important in Canada. St. John's is in Newfoundland.

    You are 1 hour from Saint John. We use the abbreviation and add the "s".

    She's about 9 hrs of riding and a 17 hr ferry ride from you.

    I never noticed the title, gotta love autocomplete. You have interesting customs in NL. I arrived at Freshwater to pick up the filter but they close at 2, lol.
