I am killing a few months in Japan.
On a recent visit to a bike shop I snapped a few pics of the spares cabinets.

Never have I seen so much stock on display

drool...

Similar thing when I was in England years ago - I walked into a tiny storefront for motorcycle gear looking for rain pants. Like the TARDIS it was bigger on the inside and I couldn't believe the amount of stuff they carried. I actually had a choice of rain gear from cheapo plastic to high end breathable durable stuff. I probably spent an hour in there looking at all the stuff.

Aaaaaarrrrgghhhh. This frustrates the crap out of me. F-ing tax crap. Here in NJ I think they tax your inventory as potential income, rather than paying tax on something after you sell it. Hence nobody wants to stock anything unless they think it will sell. Soooo... most buy via the interwebs because if I have to wait for it anyway.... How much money/business is lost because people can't see something that they want to buy? Aaaarrgggghhh


Rant Over.

And I thought California was stupid. Damn.
That Japanese store looks like the worst thing for my credit cards ever.

Stuff the credit card, I was hoping Wardy could organize a ram raid/smash and grab before he comes home.
