i wonder how well taken care of are mods and owner. I've seen one mod jam one shop down our throats at every turn so there must be some action somewhere. I support all shops be them a sponsor on this board or not and trust certain shops with work that i don't feel comfortable doing more than others. I support cycle gear too. basically i go where the prices/work are best. basically i lay allegiance to no shop. you do things like that then you'll never know if there's a better shop.

i gotta agree with some of these comments, its rediculous. its freaking sad when money ruins something good. why cant people be cool?

for example, yall know i used to work for cyclegear sharpstown, now i work a few blocks away at stubbs sw. if i dont have something in stock, and i know a customer needs it quick, i will send them down the road to CG, and i tell them to ask for tony or julie, its no big deal. in return i know they do the same thing, i have all kinds of folks needing OEM parts or need keys cut, who come by and say that albert or whoever from CG sent them to see me. its great. you see two business that could be to each other, but instead people are being cool about it. it actually helps both businesses, and REALLY helps the customers get what they need.

same goes for tire mount and balance, CG wont take the rims off the bike, i bet they send someone my way if a customer cant pull their own rims. on the flipside if i have a customer that can pull their own rims, and they are only trying to spend what CG charges for it, i send them over there.

im sure if the CG corporate office, or my GM heard about this going on, they would freak out. they would likely make it a rule not to "send people busniess" because they are money hungry whores, which is totally stupid in my opinion.

our shop is really good at repair, its hard to find good knowledgable service (especially for seadoo which we are awesome at!) but i dont think our wrenches have alot experiance with race tuning, so if people ask about suspension i send them over to patrick for his famous $25 setup (which i will have done over there myself when get around to it)

i seriously doubt stubbs sw would sponsor, they wouldnt understand, it would take a hour just explain to them what a forum is. and i dont think they would even listen on the premise it would invlovle them spending money.

i couldnt sponsor for them, cause i dont own the place, legal issues etc.

i pm'ed sol asking what it would take to have a 1 line ad in my sig. im waiting to hear back. he allready told me the normal rates for sponsorship, and its very reasonable, but i couldnt afford it on my own.

itd be worth it for me to throw in a few bucks, cause i do make a little money off it (theoreticly) i make a 1% comision if i hit a 20k goal each month.

max, you brought up some interesting points.

i already took out the link to stubbs, but Uh-OH, there is still a suzuki in my sig!!!. my 97 GSXR600. am i violating? could this be considered advertising? suzuki could stand to make some money! i do sell suzuki parts, we do sell suzuki's at stubbs cycles sw (which happens to be located at 8200 southwest freeway, on the southbound feeder road, between beechnut and gessner)

i mean gosh. someone might see my sig, and want to come into stubbs cycles sw during they hours they are open which happens to be between 9-7 on tuesday through friday, and 9-5 on saturdays! this might benefit suzuki/stubbs or myself unfairly since other have paid for sponsorship and i didnt.

hey jet, im just curious, where exactly is powersports of conroe? what are your hours over there, buddy, and what do you specialize in? i hear you guys got the hookup on those Hyosong bikes and you get parts for them with a quickness! im curious!

THANK YOU! im glad someone can lighten up around here.

oh, and id also like to take this moment to give a couple more shout-outs.

gran prix motoring is cool as . when i was at CG i would always send people over there when they wanted to look at used bikes. now that im at stubbs i deal with them more, they order alot of OEM parts from me! :icon_bigg

mike over there is a cool dude, he used to have my job at stubbs, but he went to go work for GP, cause i guess its better over there (suddenly i ponder the thought of working at GP also, lol) i forget where they are at, isnt it by richmond and fondren?

and yes, the guys at ex-import are cool, too. yup i said it. ex-import. i always hear their prices are high, but im sure none of the employees have anything to do with that. they order alot of OEM from me too, and they have always been really freindly and good to deal with.
