Global Motorsports?

Anybody dealt with this place? They are right around the corner from Motorcycles Unlimited and they have a Goldwing I'm interested in. They have good reviews on yahoo but they could be fake. Thanks in advance...

And yes I will take it Motorcycles Unlimited to get inspected

I bought my DR650 from them about 4 years ago. Seemed like a nice old couple who ran it. They were good to me at least. And were willing to go down on price.

Ed and Willie run the place and they are in their 60's, been there over 10 years. They are fair, honest people and will negotiate if you come in ready to buy. I think the mechanic who is still there is Julian. Hes from Equador and is very knowledgeable and thorough and looks at the bikes. They are all around good people and will treat you right. Plus you get 15% any parts or labor if you buy a bike from them, of course I'm sure Patrick would get that work!

Good people, I bought a Busa from them 5-6 yrs ago and had ZERO issues with them or the bike. They had what I wanted for the right price.

I bought my first bike from them more than 10 years ago. Was an easy deal, they even delivered it to Rice U. area for me for free.
