That is the one thing I hate about running a business. I can flip stoppies all day, Loop seat standers, hit the curb and crash out of the motards all day. But when I go to sleep at night I lay there and try to figure out why 1/100 people that walk in my doors aren't happy and what I can do to fix it. There is not such idea of leaving work "at work" when it is at this level.

on the line of a good mechanic...
I would say if you arent happy with any of the suggestions maybe it is time to learn to work on your own. Thats what I did when I raced. All it took was 1 mistake by a mechanic (try running out of gas on the 3rd lap) and I saw that "If I wanted it done right....."

Patrick, Andy and Billy are all awesome guys. Did not like getting passed by Andy and Billy at the Katy track to much but, their help in the pits was always top notch.

Patrick has always handled my big bikes though and I can't say enough about how thankful I am to have found such a good guy. You put alot of faith in your bike when you decide to get out there. So, use who you trust.
