Which shop for a lot of 919 stuff?

Thanks to my recent 1800 mile cross country trip on the company dime, I need both front and rear tires as well as chain and sprockets. And at $0.30 / mile, the company is buying.

So if you were going to make a big purchase of both tires, chain, sprocket, spark plugs, and maybe a few other widgets, what online shop would you use? Cyclegear? Motorcycle Accessory Warehouse? Parts Unlimited?

You may want to call Patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited, but he's way up in NW Houston off Hwy. 1960. He gives nice discounts to Two Wheeled Texan forum members, which makes his prices competitive to on-line prices (usually). I heard if you show him online prices, he'll try to match, plus he's local.

I agree with Rob. I typically don't use shops because I can do it myself and I don't trust the shops. But Patrick is a different story. He will tell you what the best is but give you what you want and if you tell him you're with Motohouston or TWTex he'll give you a good discount. Then if you need someone to do some work for you, you have someone there that you can trust and you want believe how well his shop is run. He doesn't mess around.
