We have satellites in space with cameras that can take a picture of a nickel on a manhole cover in Manhattan, but we can't get pictures from security cameras at 20 feet that anyone can make out. Any hopes of posting pictures of this last robbery? I arrived at the bank about 3 minutes after it happened. Unbelievable in this small town.

Your business might be better if you would accept new business. I called to get my cycle repaired and was told I would need an appointment. I was ready to drive there and leave my cycle, but no, I still needed an appointment for next week. I am thinking my options

Your business is bad because people you've worked for have spread the word about your work...And, women who would work for you are ones NO ONE wants to see with their clothes on, much less topless!

well lets turn this into a cycle loco post and seeing as the past 2 are bad hey let me go ahead and throw in my 2 cents. ERIC ADAMS IS BAD NEWS!!! He hired my 21 year old sister who is a single mother with a 3 year old son her fiance passed away last year and she has been struggling to make ends meet, he told her she was hired (originally they wanted me because i have management experience and my parents told him about me and he told them to tell me to call but i just moved out of state and glad i didnt go back) he said she could start on tuesday so she was happy about it he told her there was a poker run on saturday and he wanted her to ride with him because he had no one to ride with him of course she said i'll ride on my dads bike he handed some flyers to her and asked her to post them around town she did, she called him back on thursday before she was supposed to start and told him she had put in her notice for her other job and she was ready to start on tuesday he apparantly was happy and said great so my sister was all anxious and excited to start something closer to home and full time, she showed up to work this morning and the gates were closed, she waited until she saw someone in the shop she called them she arrived at like 1020 (earlier than scheduled) but when she called a girl answered the phone my sister asked if they still needed her she was told to start today of course the woman/girl was rude to her so now that leaves my sister jobless with a child and no source of income. what they did was wrong!!! when our mother went to confront him he ran and hid of course she lied and said he wasnt there she just wanted to know why, she called his cell he said he knew nothing about my sister and hung up. EVERYONE LET YOUR FRIENDS KNOW! He is a bad person and that is a bad business, he doesnt care about anything or anyone all he wants is to try to make a dollar but the only way you can do that is to appeal to people not appaul them.

I've had several dealings with this character. He has torn up more bikes than he can fix. The reason...METH. That's right...METH. Who on this earth wants a geek freak to mess with their bike? Not me nor anybody I know. I tell everybody I meet not to go to Cycle Loco. This guy needs a rehab not a bike shop. I've seen him do it time and time again. I dont participate with that stuff but I've seen my fair share. And I've seen lots of it at his house and shop. DO NOT GO THERE!!!!

This is pure crap!! If you want to bad mouth someone then go back to the post about the local cops.Have you ever saw eric's name in the newspaper on drug charges? Hell No!! His work is done with both skill and pride.His prices are more than fair.We have purchased two bikes there and I am sure we will go back and buy more.I stand behind whatever he does because he will do it well whether its bikes or a bar.There is a great idea,if we elect him sheriff I bet he could clean up this sick little town.My name is kathie taylor if you know what you are talking about or have the brass on your harley or probably honda cause all you can afford is a poster of the real thing then post your name just as I did. One final thought from all us ladies(Eric,if you take off your clothes you will get all our buisness.]

No, my dear we don't ride Honda's...try H/D Ultra & RoadKing...Yes it is true he is on meth...unfortunately I know this to be true, because I witnessed him asking if a friend of mine if they knew of a hook up to buy the stuff. And, unfortunately I also know of three bikes took in just for routine service that came out badly messed up. As for the comment about the women who would work for him, I agree with that fellow biker, the women I've seen him with I wouldnt want to see naked!

I unfortunately was one of the people that Eric played in the sad Shop game and I also witnessed his Meth use and his paranoia from it. Saw it in his shop and house, yes he told me I could work for him too but only if I showed up his thief of a shop girl and put her out, he eventually ended up with this thief and may still be with her he is a womanizer and abuser of the worst kind. Karma is coming to kick him in the ass. He will pay for is meanness. Sorry to hear he played this on another gal, too. I was lucky, I had a local church that helped me find work and treated me with respect. I'm in another state now and alone but happy!
