The shop starts work around 7:30 AM and there is an OK waiting area with rading material, coffee, sodas, water and a nice HD TV.
    Their number is: 512-451-7979

    You can send me private message. I check the site every day. Just don't post all that often.

    a great independent MC shop in town is zabor's, on burnet road. the owner paul, works there all the time and is pretty cool. i go to him for tires and save >$100 per set over what lone star wanted to charge me. i let them fiddle with my engine, brakes, and transmission, but i dont believe is any bmw-centric expertise with regard to tires. i'm not sure if he's open on mondays.

    Although Tuesday is not really a problem. If I can get my tire cheaper at Zabor's then I will. Will call ahead and check prices at both of course. Thanks for the tip. -Bob

    you can tell paul that the guy who keeps coming in with the black r1150r with squared-off tires from too much highway riding sent you.

    Oops!!!

    I completely forgot about ZABOR's!!!!!! Do indeed check him out. The savings will be considerable. I think he just made Ride Texas Magazine's list of TOP TEN Indies.

    .... will be doing that as long as I can, within reason, get 3,000 miles out of my existing tires (Lasertec). They should be pretty square by then. Like my hair.... lots on the side but...... - Bob

    He's open Mondays...just call a day or so ahead as he has to order some tires but gets them at 10 AM the next day.

    Great guy to deal with, have left bike and walked two blocks for breakfast/lunch at Waterloo Icehouse, come back and rode off. He is going to miss me with 6 sets of tires, I was there at least every other month with a set...I got a No-Mar Christmas.

    I was the guy that got a puncture two days after visiting him...twice! And one bent rim on the RT twelve miles after leaving with a fresh set( another story about urban jungle driving)
    He always asked" didn't you just put a set on that bike?"
