Another busy scheduling week this past week. I figured it would be a pretty good week and just like the past 6 years work is starting to pick up. Usually October and November are our slowest months and things start picking up towards the middle to end of November and just like clockwork this year is following previous years trends.

I hope everybody had a great Thanksgiving and didn't eat too much turkey; it's the deserts that get me. We had a Cherry Sundrop cake and my favorite Banana Cream Pie...Mmmm good. Now I just have to get back to the gym to work all this off again.

We have already started receiving order for the Polaris Razor seat covers. These things look awesome and we will be adding a UTV/ATV/MX bike seat page in the near future so be on the lookout for that. I think this is going to be a great area for us to grow into and while it's kind of the same thing we have been offering for the Street Bikes but it's still different because we are faced with different requirements of these seats. I also think this is going to help us improve our street bike seats because the off road seats face a lot more abuse and we can incorporate things learned in both areas together and make better seats for both sides.

I have been debating on offering aftermarket parts and things in our location and I think we will start making that transition here soon. I don't know how far into parts we will go right now but I am thinking we may start stocking some oil, batteries and offering parts too but this is an area I am not that familiar with but hopefully we can continue to keep the business growing but at the same time maintain our customer service and quality seat modifications because that is our mainstay and will always be our main focus. The only problem I see with parts is keeping everybody happy and there is always the guy who orders something then ends up not wanting it and you are stuck with a part that no one else wants so we will have to draw up new policies for this so it's going to be a pretty long process getting everything set up. But I am working with ZBroz on becoming a dealer for their parts and services and hopefully will have this all worked out today.

We cannot thank our customers enough for spreading the word about us. There isn't a day goes by that we get a call by someone who has been recommended to us from a previous customer. Thank you all for doing this and the word of mouth advertising you guys do is Priceless. I have in the past tried advertising in different magazines and while we have had some success, it's the word of mouth that keeps the doors opening for us. I can tell you guys thank you a million times and it will never be enough.

Cold weather seems to have set in for a while now. The ride in yesterday morning was a bit chilly at 28 degrees and this morning it was 25 and the forecast don't look much better for the next week. We haven't started getting any snow yet but last year the week before Christmas we did and I think it snowed every week after Christmas for about a month so the bikes are about to be garage bound for a little while if this happens again this year. I know the guys up north are already getting snow, we talked to several guys scheduling yesterday that was expecting a foot or more over night...good luck guys.

Well, that's going to wrap up this week's up date. I know this isn't going to apply to everybody but I have to say it. Be safe and enjoy the ride.

Testimonials

Should have done it sooner!!!!!
I had trouble planting my feet at stops with my Road King (Ok, I'm short). So I spent $1600 and installed Legend's air suspension. A good product and does allow me to drop it way down which is great...
