    I don't know any one good in Maine, but if you can make the trip here we can help. What bike do you want set up, and how far do you want to go with it?

    Well you are around 2hrs and 45 min away. Nothing a sat morning drive can't handle. I was hoping that someone closer to me could do it. I need all the time I can get to set her up for the Gap trip.

    Mid June. Depending on when I get home from deployment, it could be hectic getting ready. I need a new set of tires for mine and my wifes, I need to install my velocity stacks, and smog block offs, then have it dyno tuned. Whoooh this is gunna be difficult.

    Moto Milano in Windham can get your sag set, as well as help ballpark the clickers if you want to try some place local first to rough it in.
