WARNING TO ALL LOCAL BIKERS!!!!!!!! If you are looking for a mechanic to fix your bike. DO NOT go to FAT DADDYS of ADWOLF, VA. I took my bike to him to get new tires. Three days after he had the bike I was told that I needed new front brake pads. I told him to go ahead and replace them. He had the bike for a week and when I picked it ...up and took off down the road, I had NO back brakes when I went to stop. And the brand new front brakes where squishy at best. As if that didn't make me mad enough I got on down the road trying to limp the bike home without following the cars in front of me anywhere near close to them and the saddle bags had not been strapped back down and they flew up and hit me in the back while i was going down the road.
When I took the bike to Black Wolf shop the very next day I stuck around to find out what was wrong with the bike. He had taken the back caliper off when he replaced the tire which was not neccessary to get the tire off. And when he put it ...back on he left a bushing off it and cross threaded the threads inside the caliper and had tried to cover it up by pouring something in it and putting the bolt in anyways. So I have had to replace the parts and get the bike thoroghly looked over. And he refuses to make it right. So I am filing a lawsuit against him Monday morning.

not a problem spread the word or tell them to come and ask me about it. I have to take him to court to get the repairs paid for. He refuses to cover anything.
