    Hi All,
    The following is a little off the ball but maybe someone can point me in the right direction, I would appreciate it. Biking it from Baja to Portland end of November 2018 and looking for a safe location to store my motorbike for a few months until my return in August and continue my trip.
    Flying home out of Portland so somewhere close would be great. Its only a Vstrom so wont take too much space. Can pay a little if needed.

    I was just wandering around the forum here still trying to figure out how to navigate and stumbled on your Dodge ABS light issue. All I can share is my own experience on my '99 Dodge diesel. At one time I too had an ABS light and the rear axle seemed to almost lock up and brake really hard. After I scanned it, it ended up being the speed sensor that is mounted to the rear axle/diff. There's only one.

    Anyone know a good lc8/ktm twin mechanic in the Seattle area? Trying to avoid the dealership if I can.

    Unless someone has shop space I can rent/occupy near the shoreline area?

    Oops, I didn't see how old your post was. You most likely already got it taken care of. I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this but for anyone out there, I am able to recover and reshape motorcycle seats. Most of my friends buy Seat Concept tall seat foam and covers then I shave and shape them to fit.

    Anyone know a trusted ktm mechanic or efi guru in the Seattle or surrounding areas? Think I've got either a voltage or efi issue that I'm just not experienced enough with this bike or efi in general to feel confident I can find it quickly. I'm itching to ride!!

    Hell, if anyone knows their way around a 690 and is willing to educate me, I'll bring the beer...

    There's a ton of info on this forum, but I'm wanting to get this issue solved sooner than later. Going to seek outside help on this one I think...

    Hey, Chad, you guys fell off my radar somewhere along the line. I used to buy a lot of stuff from you back over 10 years ago now. Welcome to the Wetness! I'm gonna go check out your website.

    ** 05/30/20 Update - We've got a NoMar tire changing station now, courtesy of Ken Hall (maybe on ADV, I never asked?!). Ken needed a place to store the tool, we had the floor space. So if you're in the Hood River area and need tires swapped, I can accommodate.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    I'm not really a vendor, but I thought I'd put this out there -- if you're riding/driving through the Columbia Gorge and need bike or other vehicle help, I'm usually available. M-F the shop where I work is open 8-5, and I have 24/7 access. It's a fully equipped automotive repair shop, with a good supply of any needed fluids and the tools to perform most any repair, excluding car/truck tire mounting (I've got tire tools to do bikes). We've got a MIG and gas (oxy/acetylene) welder and during the week there is usually a TIG resource I can tap as well.

    I can pretty much always get a trailer to pick up a stranded bike, so if you're within 40 miles or so of Hood River, don't hesitate to call.

    Obviously if you bring in a car/truck during biz hours, you'll be a customer of the shop. Eves and weekends I'm happy to help out an inmate for karma. I accept beer donations too, my mother taught me to be gracious when someone offers a compliment.
