21 Do not ever go to this shop! They charged me 195.00 before they even looked at the bike for "Diagnostics" and then no one looked at it until after 11:30! Then said the starter was bad after he tried to start it at least 8 time and kept draining the battery. By 2:00 I had it with these people, I feel they ruined the starter it was fine until he stared using it! Called AAA again and had it hauled to Marathon, Fl. to Keys Cycle Shop!
