My Moto Parts Guys

The men of Cycle Depot… sounds like it should be a pin-up calendar, but it’s just a shop full of great guys who have helped me out over the years with not only parts, but teaching me how to change my tires, pick up a bike (yes, I accidentally dropped it in the parking lot, so it was a good lesson to learn,) a little help now and then solving a mechanical problem, but above all, amusement every time I walk through the door. So a big cheers and thanks, guys!

I recently found, which also deserves a shout out, Scott’s Performance.  A thanks to James for letting me pick his brain on everything from riding gear, to video cameras, to steering stabilizers to anything moto related.  This guy knows his stuff and is just a joy to talk to.
