This year just keeps flying by and work is as good as ever and with gas prices where they are motorcycles are getting rode more and more every day. It's hard to beat 45-50 mpg that you get on a bike.  I know the dually hasn't been driven nearly as much as it was a year ago.
 
Well, after several months of trying to round up a crew to work at Sturgis this year I hate to have to do it but our yearly trip to Sturgis is NOT going to happen.  I have had several different people say they would go but then come back and tell me they can't so I have had to make the call and Sturgis is off.  I look forward to this trip every year and I often find myself watching the calendar and counting down the days till we leave but it looks like I am having to start looking at another 12 months to go by.  I am already looking for a crew for next year's event so hopefully in 12 months I can find the help to go.   To me this really sucks but its all part of the business and we have to keep on rolling.

Usually this time of year we are so busy that I don't really have time to work out a new modification but this past week I put in some extra time and came up with a new modification for the 2011 and 2012 Harley Davidson touring bike seats.  We had a brand new 2011 Street Glide come into the shop with a very short rider, 5'2"s tall.  I did our normal modification and installed memory foam and this got the rider flat footed but they still wasn't comfortable moving the bike.  I am not a big fan on cutting the sides of the seat pans off because it changes the way the seat's finished look is. So I made the decision that I was going to cut off part of the sides of the seat pan and if I messed the seat up then I would just buy them a new seat. Well, long story short it worked and worked perfectly.  It did change the fitment just a little bit but nothing major and the customer was ecstatic with the new modification.  Like I said though, this new modification is for 2011 and 2012 Harley Davidson touring bikes and no others.  I haven't worked out the pricing on the modification but I don't think it will real expensive and should be in line pricing wise with our other modifications.

That's going to wrap up this week's up date.  So till next time be safe and enjoy the ride.
