Indian Motorcycle Boutique
Don't get me wrong, love the new Indian Motorcycles. The problem is that there is just something inherently wrong with any motorcycle sold at a boutique. Maybe I'm wrong? Maybe boutiques are how beautiful things are to be displayed?
Aren't things in boutiques to only be looked at though? When I think of things in a boutique, I think of things that are pretty, but easily broke.
Rusty Valve Stem
This is the straw that broke the camel's back. I paid for a new tube and they either installed an old one or gave me on so cheap that it eroded quickly. It caused a nagging leak that was difficult to find without tearing the tire apart.
This was a large and reputable motorcycle repair shop! I've had other problems at motorcycle repair shops too. This is what made me decide to do as much work as possible on my own motorcycles.
1960 Gilera Motorcycle
A vintage motorcycle show in Upper Arlington, Ohio brought out this 1960 Gilera motorcycle. I'd never seen one before so I looked up the Wiki on Gilera to find out that Piaggio bought the company out. According to the owner's information, this motorcycle was sold by Sears in 1960.
