Trails Motorcycle Products
||This is a story
told to us by one of our SabMag
friends. Basically, Happy Trail had a slight mix up in the pricing
of one of their GIVI luggage
products. Well, after a bit of discussion with the customer, Happy
Trail found out how the mix up happened and corrected it by refunding
the customer the difference. All in all just a show of good business,
but we all know that doesn't always happen. Great job Happy Trails!!
Enough Motorcycle Leathers
name says it all!
|Anybody looking for good
gear at a good price should check New Enough Motorcycle Leathers
Besides having excellent prices on NEW gear from manufacturers
such as Vanson, Fieldsheer, Teknic, Joe Rocket, HJC, Hein Gericke,
Olympia, Alpinestars, Sidi and Prexport, they have a large selection
of USED leathers in "excellent" and "like new" condition, at prices
for the budget-minded!
I can tell you from personal experience that they are easy
to deal with. Customer service is important to them, and WE
get the benefit of it. They are a small, family-run organization,
so you're always dealing with "the Boss".
of the Parts Fish!
|Our bikes are made up of
an incredible number of tiny parts. Occasionally some of them
need to be replaced. Particularly if you have an older model,
you know what a challenge it can be to even identify these tiny
marvels of the machinist's art. You can SEE it, you know where
it goes on the bike, but what the heck is it CALLED? That's where
Kurt from PowerSportsPro.com
steps in! Not only does he have a spectacular seclection of anything
your heart could desire for motorcyle enthusiasts, but he's got
this great tool called the Parts Fish linked right to the front
page of the site. The Parts Fish lets you visually locate OEM
parts from diagrams of any Honda or Yamaha ever made, with more
makes being added soon. So now not only can you see the parts
in an exploded picture, but you can actually drop them right into
your shopping basket and Kurt will have them on their way to you
that day! It's a great service and they're good people. Roadhouse
members even get a discount! Email Merlin
for discount details.
Bill's Repair and Performance
Performance Tuning, Parts - Tires - Accessories
|If you've been following
the latest "Wall of Shame" story
about how Dave felt rudely abused by Norm Schoeb at Norm's Cycle
Center in West Homestead, PA, you might be interested in checking
this site out. Superbike Bill is the guy who not only made Dave's
Shadow right again, but made her run sweeter than ever! This is
the sort of guy we need to be supporting, so if you're in western
PA and need some work done, be sure to look him up! We'll see
if Merlin can't wrangle some sort of deal for Roadhouse members,
but even if not you know full well just how valuable excellent
service at a fair price can be.
|Long before I bought my
Shadow, I had been looking off and on for a good deal on a motorcycle.
RTM Motorcycles is just up the street from one of the big local
dealerships (where I had been repeatedly UNable to find a good
deal...) and they treated me quite well even before I spent any
money there. In Auguet of 2000 I was finally able to lay down
some cash and Tom steered me right towards a gorgeous '86 VT1100C
at a great price. I bought it and have been really happy with
it ever since. But I'm even happier with the continuing service
I've gotten from Tom and the crew at RTM. There simply isn't a
better deal anywhere on Florida's West Coast. So if you're down
here and need any parts or to have some work done, look them up.
Good wrenches and great prices are a pretty sweet combination.

Virtual Motorcycle Boutique
carries a wide range of accessories, including 46 separate
categories of Shadow items. They handle leathers,
helmets, chrome and much more. List members have dealt with
them, and found their standard prices to be very good, and now
they are offering additional discounts to Roadhouse List Members.
The discount will vary, depending on their markup on the particular
item. Contact Marc

|When I asked about floorboards
here earlier in the week, a list member - aceryder - said to get
Cobra boards and no other. I took his advice and learned a lot
in the process. At the Cobra website, the boards list for $299.
Aceryder said to check prices at Motorcycle Accessory Warehouse
The boards were $233 there. I ordered them via that website with
THEN - just a few minutes ago I got delivery of a Nolan N100
helmet that I ordered two weekends ago from a vendor at the
Cycle World show in Chicago. I paid $205 for it thru a California
place called RKA that makes beautiful soft luggage for bikes.
Having just had a money-saving experience with Motorcycle Accessory
Warehouse, I called and asked if they sell the same N100 helmet
and how much. $185! I'm too lazy to send the one I just got
back, but I should. This is no shot at RKA. The luggage they
make is fabulous and can't be bought anywhere else. But for
stuff that can be found at a number of different vendors, it
looks the Warehouse is the current hot place for really good
prices. Jerry Galvin
