    **Posted this in the official Vendor Thread and then noticed that there was this Regional PNW thread. I'm reposting this here since it really pertains to the PNW and not surrounding areas.**

    I responded to another thread where an inmate was asking for short term storage, so figured I'd introduce myself here.

    With the help of some friends and like minded moto-companies, we are kicking off MotoShed later this week. Website will go live with all final pricing for the communal garage portion, but Storage itself will be $65/month. Unlimited drop off and pick up during business hours. We have room for about 40 or so bikes. We are striving to be open both Saturday and Sunday (as well as "normal" hours during the week.) Feel free to come by and visit, though this week will be a busy one as we have an event Tuesday and need to pick up some equipment etc for the shop.

    We are on the north side of Queen Anne hill at Nickerson and QA Ave N. If you get a wild hair and decide you are willing to work Saturdays, give us a shout about getting involved.

    As for me, I'm just getting the ADV bug and picked up an '85 R80G/S. Stop by and teach me a thing or two.
    Thanks

    19 pages is a bear to sort through and a quick search didn't yield anything. My apologies if this has been answered.

    I'm after a good tailor or seamstress versed in motogear; mainly zippers and straps. @Scott_PDX I see you made mention on one in the Klim warranty thread. Is your guy/gal worth a call?

    For riders in the South Oregon region, Hansen's Motorcycles in Medford, OR is having a Spring Open House! They will be serving lunch, and vendors will be there with new products on display. Our Helite reps will be there fitting riders for Helite vests and jackets, and will also have the complete line of Helite gear there to show. If you are in the area and would like to try on a Helite Adventure Airbag Jacket, or see which size vest will work with your current jacket stop in this Saturday. We will be giving away a free gift with every Helite purchase this weekend only. It's going to be a beautiful day, so don't miss out!

    Anyone know where to get a seat covered installed in the Monroe/Redmond area? I've emailed a few upholstery places and they've quoted me $75 and $105. Seat Concepts only charges $20...

    Your website is hard to navigate on a tablet.

    Looking for a shop that can do suspension work on my Husqvarna Terra close to Zip 97523.
    The front forks need to be set up for my weight and riding style.

    I never have done forks,. I know I'm able to do them. My worries are how much time it will take if I'm doing them myself and what exactly do I need to set them up to my weight and riding?
    I was hoping to hand the forks over to a guy that knows what he's doing and has the right parts to do it in a couple of days. Since I'm a one bike guy (and Kate won't let me borrow her WR, ever!) I would hate to have my Terra sitting in pieces in the middle of summer.
    Do you know some shops that do suspension around Springfield, Peterman?
    Kate says hi, and you need to come visit us!
    Maybe I need to wait till winter

    Not really a vendor, but this seemed the best place to make this not look "spammy." It's a kickstarter to create stickers and patches for all 53 Oregon State Parks. I'm not affiliated with this, but came across it on another site. I like the idea of collecting them as I visit them, and I just so happen to have a bunch of empty room on my panniers!

    Webpage presents as "odd" with both IE and chrome on a 1680x1050 display.

    Alan, your website has multiple issues, I think you should talk to a HTML professional.
    It's current format doesn't leave a prospective client with a good first impression.

    The format is too wide. Having to scroll from the left to right is a major turn off.

    You have overlapping text (background covered by foreground).

    You have black text displayed on a black background, which makes it unreadable.

    Social media tabs are covering text / menu options.

    The photo gallery is paltry. Better to have 30 medium size pictures than 6 ultra-wide photos.

    The soundtrack on the video clip... words escape me.
    I would much rather listen to engine/wind/gravel than that MUZAK (and I'm being very being charitable).

    Cheers.

    My 1250 Bandit had slightly bent fork legs. New/used were pretty pricey for a grungy commuter so I asked around.

    Jason at Moto Int. in Seattle hooked me up with a gentleman on 45th in North Seattle that has a jig to straighten forks. Saved me a bundle and he worked fast.

    His email is jvyoung@earthlink.net

    I have a set of SV650 forks that need work as well. Tell him Matt sent you, maybe he'll give me a deal :deal

    I'm in the Spokane area, just barely north of town.

    I've been running a part time online business for many years - since 2002.
    I don't have a store, I just run it out of my house and occasionally attend shows and events.

    I carry:
    LED Lighting for trailers, vehicles, RVs (interior and exterior)
    I can get nearly any automotive accessory you'd find online, such as floor mats, performance parts, etc.
    Rigid Industries LED Lighting products and mounting bits
    Lifetime LED Lights dealer

    I also carry LED flashlights on this website of mine: www.deltabravotactical.com

    Condor Outdoor tactical gear. Their mid-sized backpacks work great for the riding I do. I use their medium modular pack, item # 126

    I'm an Amsoil Dealer - easiest way to get Amsoil products is to use my store link and order on your own. Link is located top right side, in the navigation bar at my website www.overland-gear.com

    My stores:
    www.rv-led.com
    www.ledtrailerlights.com
    www.overland-gear.com

    Hey Joe,

    If you ever need any analytics support, I'd be happy to help out. I'm trying to grow my freelancing practice, but I'm also a consultant with a firm in Seattle. I do Business Intelligence, Dashboarding, and Reporting, and I focus in Excel automation in addition to other analytics languages. Basically, if you do anything in Excel, I can automate it and make it a more efficient process. I'd love to be more involved in the adv community, so any other riders out there that need help, let me know!

    Thanks,
    Danny

    Well what do I have to offer?

    I am an artist, and have painted a couple of motorcycle paintings on canvas lol. I can also paint on bikes and helmets, but I am awaiting a new airbrush in the mail any day now.

    ALSO I make some really awesome bike covers. They are prototypes currently, but I will bring one to something sometime to show you all.
