my friend has had his VFR repaired and serviced there alot. Its a small outfit, no overhead. But the work has turned out good thus far.
Personally, I would only take my Ducati to either Desmoto or if in the South Bay to Nicols.
I guess its all a matter how much you want to save, and how much piece of mind you have. Scott at Desmoto has hooked me up many of times (help adjusting suspension, a spanner wrench for my shoick), etc. all free. He;s getting all my business. Plus, he;ll go the extra mile and really check out your bike when in for service.
Sorry scott, I'm, crunched for cash right now, but I'll be coming in for another 12K, and getting my rear shock, and my front forks revalved !!!
Dee's Service is top notch. She worked on my honda cb1 and made it run better than any of the other shops that I took it to in SF. She's working on my monster that I just picked up. So I'll post a update on how that goes.
