People will go to extraordinary lengths to realize their dreams, like Civil Rights crusaders braving police brutality, doctors enduring years of med school, or you changing dresses seven times and converting to gypsyism to really nail your Stevie Nicks karaoke. For a guy who literally went to war in order to start his own business, check out Scorpion's Cycles
Set to open Saturday, and founded by a Duluth resident who just returned from serving as a satellite communications contractor in Afghanistan in order to fund the biz, Scorpion's is a motorcycle sales, rental, service, and customization shop, soon to be decked with yellow parking lines so hog-owners can park their rigs inside, intended to make it look like the outside of a biker bar which's sure to be full of all sorts of friendly chaps. The shop boasts a certified Harley technician but'll upgrade any bike, from body work like extended forks, to fiberglass windshields, to old-school studded leather backrests, to performance improvements like high-grade carburetors and subtle or booming exhaust pipes; for paint jobs, they'll work with specialists in Buford or Tucker who're familiar with pretty much all models, although they tend not to brag about the plus-size ones. You can also purchase 300cc cycles from chopper-maker Johnny Pag, such as the tall-framed/low-cruising, glossy black "Barhog" (w/ a bomb-shaped oil tank), and the long-forked, stretched-chassis, flame-covered "Spyder"; there's also a selection of rentable bikes they'll deliver to your home, office, or even DMV testing site, such as the monstrous 1500cc Suzuki Intruder, or the Harley Sportster "Hugger", which better not be one of those plus-size models
For less-hog-minded motorists, they also carry a range of models from Doraville's Urban Scooters, and'll have plenty of biker apparel such as insulated leather jackets, vests, gloves, and even "x-slim" leather pants, which come in extraordinary lengths, doing precious little for your dream of not being 5' 1" 1/12, and mad slutty.
