Where can you reliably get these bikes serviced around Houston? I'm looking at one but don't want to get something nobody knows how to work on.

I work on my own. But I'm sure any reputable shop can work on them, they are really not that different from other sportbikes.

I wasn't asking about problems. I was asking if you, as an owner had any shops you preferred for the 1125

I know I'm the latest noob (to bikes) around here, but I've experienced a lot of technical knowledge and hospitality by Motorcycles Unlimited. They seem to know their stuff, and won't FUBAR your shizz.

They've currently got a small Blast for sale out front, too. Dunno what they did to it, though.
