Laziness promotes nothing rewarding. Are you an Obama supporter?

I have a frind of mine that is sooooo lazy he finds the fastest way to do a job, and right the first time.

"if I work on a job that is supposed to take 8 hours, and I get it done in 4, I can off have my life."

I like my lazy friend

lazy people can only shoot what they can see from the couch. makes for peace. my political leanings obviously affect my quest for a rear tire though so i will reveal that no im not a obama supporter.

Say I was a shop owner. I wouldn't even bother to respond. You want a quote but are too lazy to ask them directly. You think that in their mind its worth their time to mess with you? How many people a day you think ask but never show up? I know from experience this isnt gonna work out like you want. You need to make the effort to contact them. Im just trying to make this easier on you

fine, I will do it for him

ME880 runs around $150

$50 remove/dismount/mount/balance/install back on bike

$85 an hour to fiddle with carb, 3 hours labor.

$20 shop supplies

$14,000 EPA fee

Drop it off over here in Cypress and I will have you going by the end of the day

I don't know what part of town you're in, but shoot Patrick a PM or post up in the Motorcycles Unlimited forum. Do the same for any other forum sponsors you'd like to hear from.

That would be the easiest way to get ahold of a shop without using the phone.
