These guys are great, its where our Honda PCX150 came from. I gave them my business because they were honest and ethical. Lake City Powersports in Seattle.

I give my business to ethical businesses that treat me well as a customer. This is why I drive out of my way to visit Lake City Powersports. I got a new pair of warm winter gloves, great food early mornings, late nights, or cool winter sunny days like today, Praise to God for the nice weather, nice people, and good times.
Life is complicated, but Tom said something about motorcycles that really resonated with Meg and I both "No one needs a motorcycle" "As long as they are for fun and do not take food off the table, then thats great" expressing the spirit of rational sane reasonable consumerism that protects a family, a person, that is good for the hearts of people, ethical and fair, balanced and reasonable.
They ordered me a pair of key blanks for my scooter, something no one else was able to help me with, even Honda of North America said those keys were discontinued and out of production. Glad the guys at Lake City Powersports were able to help us.
- We saw a bike that I have been eyeing as a replacement for the Honda PCX150, or addition, but Meg and I can only make sense of owing one at a time right now. They had brand new Honda Grom's for $3199 or $4007 out the door, not a bad deal, but the reality for us is that we will end up trading our scooter for the Grom, so that Meg can learn with me on the back how to safely operate the scooter. Tim the nice sales guy even gave us a flyer for the Washington State Motorcycle Safety Training Course, which I have already taken. I started riding motorcycles when I was 14 on a 1984 Honda 400 dirt bike, but got going with the test ride of my cousin Scott's former 1989 Honda Hurricane. My fellow motorcycle gear head mentor Dan found a 1999 Honda CBR 600F4 in the news paper, I promptly followed his linked reference to Eric Becker, who parted with his 2 year old babied machine for $5K. He had it mounted on the coffee table in his basement, having used a tooth pick and q-tip ear swaps to clean the rock piece and road debris from the radiator over the winter, one bit a time. I looked like a brand new machine. With great difficulty we fired up on the day that I purchased it, and I made it to half way across the floating i90 bridge before the fuel line ran out of fuel. Unknowingly the fuel like cutoff value was closed, which is why it was so hard to start. A series of miracles followed. A young couple in a 1987 Toyota Camry saw me stranded, and gave me a ride home on their way to a bible Study, just 2 blocks away from my parents house at the time. Then, the tow truck driver had a premonition to take the bike to the first exit on Mercer Island. Having arrived home during this time, I called Dad on his cell frantic, and he pulled a special favor from Dan Rosevelt, the owner of Ducati of Seattle, who send his deliver van to pick up my bike and safely transport it back to my house. When I spoke to the tow truck driver, he said, "normally I would have taken this back to the lot, and you would have had to pay $400 to get it back, but God spoke to me, and told to come here to this spot and wait for 45 min. Trusting the Lord, I went against my intuition, and waited, and here you are, God said to me that he was sending a special person to pick it up, and that I was to wait, for this would person would create changes in the world that Honoring to God, and that I was instrumental in helping person in seemingly random act of kindness." I was completely blown away, and to this day Love God, his an amazing God that works miracles through the lives of people in complex and subtle ways that are hard to understand and impossible to appreciate if you really stop to think about it!
