    Well oh my..just had 20,000 mile service,rear cylinder leak fixed,2 new tires and wheel bearings,new battery, engine heat sensor replaced(was causing throttle issues) and warped rotors repaired. All necessary. Will take all winter to pay off...but worth it.

    All set for next year.

    Wait till you need a 50k service $$$. My guy will do it for 6 bills. That's a bargain compared to H D.

    There are good indys out there just none up here.

    I got a good relationship with my local hd shop and a great older mechanic " Bill". Plus they give me a veterans discount which some dealerships do not. Expensive but worth it.
