I called them up for a quote on a GRA kit on the VT and they were awesome to talk to on the phone, Terry even sent me out a quote in writing within the next few days. If you look at their website they basically say they arn't the cheapest but their quality and knowledge is what you pay for.

Terry is a very competent fitter. Their work is of highest quality.
They have been dealing with GRA stuff for a long time.

I have heard of stories of customers smacking him in the head, cause of his mouth.
But they have been around a long time and they DO know their stuff. I think they may be just way too busy to do much right at times.
