Finally going to the shop

I am finally bringing my bike into the shop to do all the work that I planned over the winter...I know I know...I spent the winter planning and when it gets warm I start doing...anyway I will take it to Powerhouse Motorsports in Long Island and they will ship my forks to DK. Total turn around time for all my bike work...two weeks ...a little late but I can survive that long...

Re: Finally going to the shop

Good deal. Powerhouse Motorcycles in West Babylon? Or is there another place on LI called Powerhouse Motorsports? Weird they're be 2 with such similar names....

Yup, tell Frank the 2 girls from NJ with the Hondas say hello. He did the custom mapping for our Powercommanders when we installed full exhausts. He's got all the latest Dynojet stuff, the dyno, the tuning link software, etc. and knows how to use it! He did a great job mapping our bikes!

yeah, on a rare occasion! I was glad to have a friend from Brooklyn who could tell me what roads I wasn't allowed to take with the trailer! Saved me hassles and tickets!

Re: Finally going to the shop

Good, 'cause the thought of having to ride through the city to get to LI doesn't exactly appeal to me! Farthest into NYC I go is the Ear Inn on Spring Street, Manhattan I believe.

Re: Finally going to the shop

Well coming from Jersey there are many ways to get to LI avoiding the city...its really not that bad. Where is this Ear Inn? What goes on there?

The Ear Inn is right outside the Holland Tunnel, on Spring street, a block or two in from the West Side Highway. Every Tuesday night is The Hang. Lots of sportbikes and Euro bikes. Just hangin' out chattin' about bikes folks start showing up around 7:30-8 pm. I get in a few times. Haha, once I went in and the Duc overheated. Thank god I got out of the tunnel. It crapped out on me on the West Side and I had to push it the last few blocks.

Re: Finally going to the shop

That tunnel is notorious for overheating bikes...once I went through and my temp started at about 200 and when I got to the other side I was at about 245...everyone else complained about the same thing. Maybe I will head over there one Teusday when it gets warmer...
