Need a repair shop in Houston

I wrecked the brand new 09 Speed Triple on 45 going from Houston to Dallas. I think I'm going to transport the bike back down to Houston (currently located in Dallas) because I can keep a closer eye on the repairs. I'll try and throw up some pics and a better description of why I went down (at 70mph-ran over a re-tread in the middle of the highway) later. I'm relatively ok though. The worst injury I have is a sprained ankle.

I'm in need of a shop that doesn't mind going the extra mile with TLC to recover the bike to its previous near-perfect condition, because I won't accept anything less. Houston would be preferable, but Fort Worth may be an ancillary option just for the heck of it since the bike is in Fort Worth right now. I figure that I can keep track of the repairs better from Houston. I believe State Farm is going to take care of everything minus the $1k deductible.

Thx guys - & wear your gear. It'll save your life.

-Keith

Do you mean http://www.bmwmotorcyclesdallas.com/ in Plano? Do you have first hand experience with their work? How do you think they'd compare with Motorcycles Unlimited? I seem to have heard only good things about Patrick's work.

my vote goes to Motorcycles Unlimited also

281-444-0545 talk to patrick or brandon and let them know your situation. take a look at ANY of patrick's motorcycles, cars, trucks.....he treats his customer's bike as he would his own. you'll see what i mean when you see his stuff.
