This is Year 3 for MOTO2N, and holy smokes…
The demand for what I do has become OVERWHELMING.
I am considering hiring a secretary/assistant. I’m on the fence about that. More info to come, especially if I start really hosing myself trying to return calls, booking appointments, and doing what I do best, which is fixing bikes/scoots/ATVs/UTVs.
This month has been AMAZING, thanks 100% to MY AWESOME CUSTOMERS. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: I LOVE Y’ALL, and I’M NOT SHY ABOUT SAYING IT!!! I love meeting you, meeting your families, working in your garages (or in front of your places – don’t need a garage at all), and fixing your bikes.
But let’s talk about this April… It’s been INSANE! I’m booked out until mid-May at this point. I have availability before then, but it’s hit-and-miss. May’s booking up fast, and we’re still in April.
PLEASE book online if you can. It saves everyone time. I can’t guarantee you’ll get the time-slot you picked (people book via phone, too), but you’ll get something close. I’ll always call or e-mail to confirm before showing up. I’m booking for mid-May at the moment. Please be patient! Flexibility is ALWAYS a HUGE plus. I’m but one man, and I work 7 days a week, all hours of the day.
I do NOT do “same day” appointments. It’s just not possible. Please don’t expect me to roll out the same day you call to fix your bike. I’m not sitting on my ass waiting for the phone to ring. I didn’t start doing this yesterday. I’ve been working on bikes for DECADES, and this is YEAR 3 for MOTO2N. My phones ring off their hooks all day long, and I struggle to return all of the calls I get.
CBR1000RR, Hell Yeah
A Mr. Skywalker called, needed his Pod Racer fixed. I rebuilt the forks, changed the oil, and installed a pair of Heli-Bars so his bones can stay comfy on it. Took it for a test-ride. Fighting the front wheel at 100mph+ in nothing but sunglasses and street clothes. FUN FUN FUN!!! 175hp. 190mph top speed. Refined as heck, as a Honda should be. I LOVE THIS STUFF!!!
More pics of the “pod racer”:
Another gratuitous shot of my favorite sporty bike:
I can do fork rebuilds on anything but “BPF” type forks. I have the fancy $200 Race-Tech spring compressor along with a full set of fork seal drivers to rebuild the forks on your modern sport bike. Also have the knowledge and skills to DO IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME. If your sport bike forks need rebuilt, call me. I can do them onsite in about 2-3 hours.
KTM Oil Change
I can change the oil on your dirt bike. You should probably do this yourself, but if you can’t, or you just wanna have me do it on top of rebuilding your forks or installing new parts… I’m ya huckleberry!
I hate KTMs, prefer “Big 4” Japanese machines (the Japanese build the BEST motorbikes ever), but if yours needs work… I can likely do it! Not gonna dump Rotella in this thing. It gets the GOOD SHIT!!
113″ S&S Chopper
I kept telling this guy I don’t work on Harleys, but he had a bunch of other cool bikes, and he kept telling me “IT’S NOT A HARLEY! IT’S AN S&S CHOP!!!” so I was like… OK, OK… I’ll take a crack at it. I’m a mechanic. If it’s a machine, I can fix it. The thing started on alky, so I cleaned its carb and then rode the piss out of it. 😛 🙂
I DO NOT WORK ON HARLEYS! I DO NOT WORK ON DOMESTIC SHIT! YOU GOTTA BE REALLY COOL TO GET ME TO WORK ON ONE OF THESE!!!
It handled like it was 10′ long. Which is to say like shit. But when I dropped the clutch and pulled the throttle, shit burned out and BOOGIED like a Saturn 5 rocket!!! Too much fun. Makes me wanna buy a Harley. If it’s got two wheels, I can most likely fix it and then ride the wheels off of it before you do! That’s what I do!
Minty Old Hondas
These things melt my heart. Such a cool bike. I fixed his scoot, then he wanted me to look at a fuel leak on this baby. I told him to turn the gas of whenever it’s parked instead of charging him a mint to go to town on the carbs.
What can I say? I’m honest. To a fault.
They’re not my favorite, and they don’t get my blood pumping, but I can do the maintenance on your ATV if you don’t have time to do it yourself.
Old Polaris in cool camo bodywork. I dig it! Let’s go hunt something!!!
My specialties are scooters, Japanese dirt bikes, and Japanese sport bikes. This was right up my alley. Cleaned its carbs. Works great now!
Blown up carbs!
Don’t try this at home, folks. You’re guaranteed to screw it up. Call me instead! Race mechanic stuff in your driveway!!!
Now Stocking Honda Metropolitan and Ruckus Fuel Pumps and Filters
This is a common problem I solve. If you let your Met or Ruck sit, it’s likely to need a new fuel pump along with a carb clean. I keep these $100 fuel pumps IN STOCK!!!
I wrote the book on the Honda Ruckus, by the way. Find that here.
New Hats for MOTO2N
New hats make me happy. I don’t give them to customers. I wear the hell out of them. I love rocking my own gear. But if you’re really cool, and you ask nice, I WILL GIVE YOU ONE. ASK ABOUT IT!!!
What are motorbikes made of? TIME & MONEY!!! Ask me about a hat if you want one!!!
That’s all for now, folks. I gotta get back to answering calls and FIXING BIKES!!!
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR READING! For having me fix your bikes! I LOVE MY CUSTOMERS!!!
