So you would sacrifice quality work (and since we're talking about motorcycles, possibly your life) for proximity? ........k

Lol, Motorcycles Unlimited isn't the only shop in Houston that does quality work...

So you basically agreed with my statement, but you let the side of yourself call me a troll.

Well, your "statement" wasn't a statement, it was a question. Therefor i cannot agree or disagree with it. As for the troll part, it is common knowledge.

Answering a question with a question, very helpful.

Just going off of what I've heard. I haven't lived down there in years so I wouldn't know. I do all my own work. And if you thought that was funny I take you hadn't seen this yet...

Tejas Motorsports is not that far of a commute if you are on the SE side. They are located north of the Lynchburg ferry before Crosby. I've had some pretty good experiences with them.

Some would rather have the liability fall on a shop with credibility and insurance.

OP was asking for a mechanic shop on their side of town and you automatically think they are wanting to fix a problem they are having.

Maybe they just want to have a shop in their back pocket in case they feel they need to have work down locally.

Not bad reasoning. I mean I doubt that explanation because typically people only think of shops when they have a problem. But I still don't see how that reasoning is shown here:
