Servus! Here's the skinny-- I'll be offering tire changing, routine and not so routine service, I have diagnostic tools for BMW including water heads, I'll have a big comfy couch to rest on, I will have 1 later model BMW F650GS to start with to rent out and will build my fleet, I will be able to order parts & accessories & apparel. I was schooled at MMI and was a master HD and BMW technician but all brands are welcome at Cuznbob's. If I don't know or don't feel confident with brand X I'll let you know. I've been working in this profession for 20+ years and know what points and a carburetor are.

* MY PHYSICAL LOCATION WILL BE OPEN DECEMBER 1ST *

I wonder what someone has to do to get google data base updated, that used to be a roofing company there they say.

Google indexes web sites to get that data. Trouble is, the roofing company's web site still says it's their address. A phone call to the roofing company might get some action. Play it 2 ways, either I have my place here, would you mind changing your website or I'm looking for you and there is a motorcycle shop at the location on your web site.

How are you guys seeing a roofing company? When I use google maps it shows empty space there? After I figure out where exactly your seeing that I'll work on getting it changed.
BTW added the business on YELP last night too. I also now have a Facebook page and am working on the website.

AhHa! OK I see, when you type in the street address. I'm on it. Thanks for the heads up. Just another bump in the road to wheelie over :-) There's been a few so far.

I just sent emails to "general info" at the roofing company "webmaster" and my leasing agent. We'll see if we get any action.

Here's the reply I got back today from the owner of the roofing company. At least he's aware of it and working on resolving it:
"Robert,
I am working on it. I have sent notices to all my vendors (twice), however some of them have not changed us in their systems yet. My website might take a couple of more weeks. I am in the process of having it revamped completely and it has been slow going. Sorry for any inconvenience. If you need to reach me for anything, my contact information is below. Best phone number is my cell."

I had the pleasure of meeting Robert today for a little work on the black pig. His time estimate was right on track so there were no surprises there. The level of work and professionalism did not go unnoticed. Little things like cleaning/lubing threads where appropriate on a bolt removal/reinstall, taking time to do the job right and in a manner I would have done myself and so forth.

Valve adjustment/throttle body sync and the pig flys now. New fuel filter, rear pads and an alternator belt and it should be good to go for many many miles.

I'd highly recommend Robert based on today's service! :sun:

Just a quick update... Today we installed hanging shelves in the shop and all the plumbing required for the air compressor. Things are right on track for Tuesday December 2nd to open! My website is not quite ready for the world but I do have a Facebook business site with some info and pics. You don't need to be a Facebook member to have a look see ;-) Many, many thanks to those who've helped me get this far!

As it turns out, I live 1.3 miles from your shop. Have been eyeballing the Beamer outside for a week or so now. Will stop by one of these days and say hello, and plan to bring wheels for tire changes here in the future!

I've had my G650X Challenge in for some work but then I'm very much aware of his first class skills and professionalism.

In another thread in the general section, somebody mentioned you were also certified for Triumph. If this is actually the case, does this include the more modern triples? Or, even if not certified, willing to work on them? Thinking maintenance, valve clearance adjustment, to be specific. Thanks.

Stopped by today and dropped off a tank for an internal liner treatment. Nice little place already full of bikes. Bob and I chatted for a while about all kinds of bikes. I predict he will be very busy.

Hey everyone, I am now set up as a reseller for Western Power Sports. http://www.wps-inc.com/ They offer a lot of different items for many brands, have online catalogs and offer almost all major brand of tires. Before you order your tires from some no-face internet terminal, give me a chance to give you a better price, you may be surprised! I will also soon be set up to resell Heidenau tires.
Thanks from Cuznbob!

I recently called about service on my 2010 Street Triple, and he's already responded with an estimate. So for Triumph owners, we have another quality option for service in Austin! This makes me very happy.

Someone give me a PM. This is literally what I do for a living.
You have to update directories and "data aggregators", not just the websites.

Willing to help out a fellow entrepreneur on this one. :clap:

Sorry but I will miss the GO/SS Party. With any luck, I'll be thumper-ing about somewhere in Death Valley, not thinking about y'all a'tall (unless I'm hungry, which is entirely likely). Will be in contact after getting back re getting the ol' R100RT out of your way.

HAPPY GRAND OPENING!

We all know you guys can ride far and fast. But the question will be answered on Saturday, who can ride the slowest? Will it be Slow Old Guy?

I dropped by Cuznbob's last week unannounced with a new chain in my hand. He took a link out of it and sent me on my way at the most reasonable price I could expect. I spent the next day out riding with my kids. Thanks for the help!

I want to thank everyone who came out last Saturday to help celebrate my Grand Opening/Season Start Party. It was awesome! If you were there you know that, if not you missed out on some good Cuznbob burgers, 2 great bands and excellent beer provided by Circle Brewing Co. But it will be held annually so we'll see you next March (hopefully Before) ;-)
Again Thanks from Cuznbob & Jenny Lippencott, it would be no party without all of you!!!

Hey Bob, I was there with the wife and my friend Dan. We had a great time and enjoyed the food. I hope your business turns out great. See you next March if not before. ;-)

Had Bob do a little tune up work on the Airhead I purchased from Kurt recently.
Bob did a great job at a very reasonable price and he also did it quickly. Although he is in Austin and I am in Houston, I felt it was worthwhile to have the bike worked on by an experienced, trust worthy mechanic.
Thanks Again Cuznbob.
