I think you should talk to this "Tim" guy and tell him how you feel. Tell
him not to talk about your mechanics. In the end, you'll feel better and
he'll have more respect for you because you said it to his face. If this guy
has to work on your bike, then you want him to respect you, right? It's not
good to have a mechanic who dislikes you.
I have owned over 10 Harley Davidson's in the past 25 years & I can say never
lost a dime on any of them. Usually I sold them for more than I paid for them.
However I spent so much time and money taking the crap of the Harley and putting
performance equipment on in its place, purchasing the Titan GeckoRM is actually
cheaper than bringing a Harley close to its standards. I have over $35,000 in
my Dyna Wide Glide, the same Ceriani 54 MM front end, twin PM 13" floating
rotors, twin PM four piston caliper brakes up front, with the Harley floating
rotor on the rear wheel and a PM four piston caliper. I could go on and on with
all the equipment I replaced or improved & it still does not come close to the
