    Just for suggestion, if your HD Dealer sponsors a HOG Chapter- attend a meeting and ask if anyone has a recommendation. In my group many members use INDY shops. Good luck.

    I agree, find a good indy and avoid the dealer as much as you can.

    Mike Cats Cycle Works in Kenner. If you are willing to travel to Alabama, several good ones there.

    H & D Cycles Lillian AL 251-961-2259
    Hildreth Performance Madison AL 256-771-0182
    Rods Performance Hanceville AL 256 352 2643

    I have heard a lot of good things about Mike Cats in Kenner. Never been there. I did call him once to discuss the cam chain adjusters and all that goes with changing them. He was very knowledgible, polite, and cost estimates were no more than any dealership would have been. I would certainly consider him with any major motor/tranny work in my future if required.

    anyone have any reviews on SLY DOG in Baton Rouge? I have also heard good things about his shop.

    OK but JHouk was asking the original question. I just asked about Sly Dogs in Baton Rouge.

    And so North of 'the lake' (Pontchatrain Im guessing) - who do you know about?
    Thanks
