question: 2007 Kawa maintenance..where?

All,

My 2007 EX 500 is close to 7000 miles now. I bought it used from Mancuso on 45S with no maintenance history. I have doing a variety of check and maintain items myself, but there is a point where my time/tools/expertise runs out. I think the bike could use an expert mechanic's eye.

The question: where to take it? Back to my nearest SW Houston 59 Mancuso dealer? Or an independent? I live in Sugar Land, so some of the shops recommended on this forum are pretty far away for me to ride the bike given my skill level (intermediate at best).

Any thoughts from the experts?

thanks!

It was always a ride for me (from downtown), but Patrick and Co. at Motorcycles Unlimited are worth the trip. They exude competence and honesty.

I hear great things about Motorcycles Unlimited, but it is too far form me.

Alan at Whoopies (formally sunnys) has been great for me...but he is pretty far form sugarland.
