Isn't a bad place to kill some time. My full time gig requires allot of travel, mostly by air. Every once and awhile a road trip presents itself. This week from BFE MO i drove to cinci. Got the job done on tues and have spent wed/thurs traveling north hitting dealerships. Killing time before the next job in Ft. Wayne.
Most are the usual cookie cutter corporate HD mandated 100ft from major highway 5000sqft Indonesian parts slinging, motorclothes pushing, autozone style parts lookup dead zones. But there are still some cool old family owned original shops that have mega personality,old parts, educated people, and mini museums.
Snapped some phone pics to share, these are from Ben Breece hd of Ottawa and Napoleon hd.
The reason for my stops at these dealerships is to add to my dip dot collection that was started 8yrs ago when I got the job. I have seen well over 200 dealerships around the world and as strong as my hatred of the factory is, the collecting keeps me away from the bar.
