    For bike parts, lots of vintage japanese parts and bikes, make sure you stop by Milwaukee Motorcycle Salavage. http://www.milwaukeecycle.com/index_02.htm

    I have to put in my two cents...rode to work one morning and while i was inside someone here backed into my CB. blew the taillight lens apart. so first place i head to is the MCS. GREAT parts selection, but holy horrible customer service batman!!

    the rudest people that i have ever dealt with, but i will continue to shop there because they own the market up here.

    For all you Milwaukee folks, you might want to check this guy out:

    http://www.waynes-cycles.com/

    cheap parts and has barely no over head so you will get a better price.
    Did you hear about the pirate with two wooden legs?

    They caught fire and burned his ass to the ground!

    I would, if asked, claim they are race bikes and have no titles. If not asked keep your mouth shut.

    Bring some back bacon as a bribe. And when you get arrested and go to jail never pick up your soap in the shower.

    Canada is a dicey subject, coming from one who has been searched more often than he cares to admit (I have since cut off a LOT of hair). My opinion is this: If you look respectable, and have a believable story, they won't stop or search you. I have transported my bike across the border a dozen times, and have never been asked for papers. The trick is to not look like a terrorist or drug dealer.

    That said, they can stop & search you for whatever reason they like. Simply by crossing the border you give consent to be searched. Make certain you declare all contraband, and you'll have no problem.

    Flint/Durand is just up the road. If you have an hour to spare, let me (and catboy - who must get searched every crossing, to judge by the look of him) buy the pints.
