To get people in the store he used to advertise "free air changes". He used to tell people if they had a vibration or something that the problem was "they still had winter air in the tires and it was Summer"... Complete BS... But it brought people into the store and then he'd sell them an alignment and/or balance to go with the "free air change".

He did very well.



:haha :ROFLOL

Just got back from a fantastic ride with my Son In Law. Unreal here is Flagstaff right now. 72 degrees. We rode a place called Cinder Mountain yesterday, never again, like really deep sand. The guys on four wheelers love it, not so good on two wheels.

The "not so good …." bit was still better than staying home ….probably! Nice pic..
All good in Australia , but no riding allowed.
Youngest daughter doing her Motorcycle License Test today and tomorrow - this part of motorcycling is allowed ! ( and that is good )
She has waited for this for a long time as she has 4 kids under 13 (do not worry I have taught them all to ride ….) so she has been a bit busy. She has always had good memories of her RM80 when she was a kid herself and just recently I helped find a '94 Yamaha TW200 for her. So that is what is happening "down here"-

Well, while I have been out in the garage working on motorcycles and stuff my wife grout out her sewing machine. She has made about a hundred face masks so far and has distributed about half so far. She is very serious about this covid crap. Y’all be safe now!

that's great she's making mask. :)

My wife is very serious about it also, they are sending all the Covid patients to her hospital. I think there are 4 or 5 in the immediate area owned by the same company. Its to keep them contain in one place.
