    New shop in the Woodinville WA area. https://tire-swapper.com/

    Primarily a tire swap shop, but he can do other basic maintenance as well (oil, brakes, chain, wheel bearings). He works out of his house, so he may be more flexible than others. Wait till you see his garage, it is sooo nice!

    Any suspension gurus close to Tacoma that have experience with adventure bikes? Prefer to take my KTM-790 Adventure and have the Andreani fork internals installed at shop instead of shipping the forks out somewhere for install.

    Cheers

    As far as I know, but my last contact with him was awhile ago so I cannot say for sure.

    What's the address for your shop? I tried to go to your website but it just has the under construction notice.

    Who do you recommend to repairing a textile riding jacket in PDX area? My Olympia has a couple of tears on some seams that I think could be repaired vs replacing for $$.

    Ramona (Motomuffin) has found a spot for her truck. NE 24th and Broadway in the parking lot of Spin Laundry Lounge. Her cafe at the school had to close when the college closed, so anyone who wants to support her or just wants a yummy burrito go see her M-F 10-2, and she is still at the Hollywood Farmers Market on Saturday mornings.

    How much of a hurry are you in? I may have some time this weekend. Always willing to help someone learn. That said, if you need to, Cycle Gear in Auburn are pretty good to work with for tire changes.

    Just a quick shout out for KFG Motorsports in Auburn WA. They offer a number of different services but they started out as suspension experts and they still are tops in that arena.

    Today, I walked in there with the OEM rear shock off my BMW and an aftermarket heavy duty dual-rate spring that I'd bought from HyperPro. Thirty minutes later I walked out with the HyperPro spring installed. Cost me a whopping $35!
