Comments: I can give you info on Good Dining, best routes, maintenance. Am willing to come pick you and your bike up if stranded I have a truck and trailer. Have a huge home, so plenty of room for you to crash. Whether you just want to save a few bux or bike is down. In good standing with the dealers so I can probably get you your parts and get you on the road - we can worry about the money later. Basically we can provide everything you could need if the bike breaks.
