Another Great Word for Mike Buras
This is just my post as a forum member having recently dealt with Mike Buras from BareAssChoppers.
I've got to say, Mike is a stand-up gentleman and a class act. He contacted me after I posted a reply asking about a headlight dampener (in another thread from another forum member also saying great things about him, incidentally). He contacted me as he still had a headlight dampener. Gave me his email address and we exchanged emails.
Instead of trying to sell me the headlight dampener, he did, in fact, tell me how to emulate a headlight dampener with regular items from a store. Since I'm in Europe, he mentioned it'd be cheaper considering the shipping fee for the headlight dampener to get here. However, I've been longing for a headlight dampener since I first read about it (on his site), so I still bought it from him for a pretty good price.
He asked me about my issues with my bike (vibrations, weird clunk in transmission) and he gave me some very useful pointers and help in great detail through several emails he sent me. I was amazed; I've never met him nor even exchanged a message with him prior to this. Yet there he was helping me. We even exchanged emails about his store, etc. I've felt like I was talking to a fellow VTX owner who knows his stuff; in fact, that's how it was exactly as his words were absolute wisdom and helped me!
I have nothing but great words for him. I could only hope more businessmen in the industry were like him. He shipped already the headlight dampener (as soon as I paid), so I haven't received it yet, but I just wanted to post these words as he truly is an all-round great guy.
I've accessorized my VTX too much and there's little else I can accesorize aside from getting into the carb and air intake (which I won't do due to local laws being a nuisance about CO2 emmissions). However, I will be buying from him again when the occasion comes. If you want to buy customized stuff from a business owner who knows our bikes to a T and who's also a gentleman who does what he says, then I highly recommend Mike Buras' business.
BTW, Mike doesn't know I've posted this nor did he asked me to post anything. This has just come out of my own self because I can easily recognize a good businessman and a good person. Too few of these people around in this industry, so I'm happy to credit one of these good people when I come across them.
