Motorcycle shop recommendation Alexandria

Title says it all, anyone know of a good cycle shop close to Alexandria? I'm working on a Harley and it's running but won't idle. I think I've gone as far as I'm willing to and it's time for professional help. The harley dealers are too far away for me to ride in it's current condition and towing is expensive so I'm hoping there's a closer place.

There used to be on on Rt1 called cycle sport but they closed down over the winter Don't know of any others though. If you needed a second look I'd be glad to try and help. If its an older carbed harley, idle problems are generally fairly easy to diagnose. Either you're not getting or getting to much air, not enough fuel, or not enough spark. In the past for me on my bikes when i have an issue like that it's been a bad seal behind the throttle of the carb where air is leaking in.
