I am dead serious here Mrs DD. What is an "indie" shop?     And don't laugh at me, please.


Oh, I'll probably laugh at you, but not for this  Bigok


Flyboy has it right: an independent shop. Anything not tied to a dealership and is run by "real people". I found one near my house for some stuff that Dan and I just don't want to get into (small garage space, poor tool distribution, lack of time).

To be honest, I do like our dealer, even though it is expensive as hell. It is just pretty far away for small stuff.

WOW! How dumb do I feel.            No wonder my friends call me a rocket scientist. I used to think it was a compliment!

It's okay, I dropped ten IQ points when I got a Yamaha. And you've had many of them.  Bigsmile

Well damn

We agree on something  Lol


Yeah -- DD for once didn't proofread her post ---  :-)

In my experience, indie shops are the best for everything. The They WANT to do this line of work and they NEED to keep their customers happy and coming back  Thumbsup



Jokes aside, I second the sentiment...  and added AKCycles to my list for the next time I'm too lazy to fix it myself.

OK, I see how it is. I didn't pick up on this yesterday. And I thought we were buddies.      You are off my Christmas list now.




On second thought, maybe it is the current FJR that slowed my thought process enough for me not to identify the insult.      Nuts

You used to pick on me relentlessly!!! And I haven't picked on you lately either. Because I am in such a great mood, I will not blast you with the obvious opening that you left the world with your last answer.
