Smile Good motorcycles unlim service

Hey guys, I know there's a bunch of positive about Motorcycles Unlimited already but with all the new riders jumping on figured I would toss another in the mix.

Had a service today, even though there were a bunch of ppl lined at the door before opening Patrick got my bike done as promised. I went over to TC for a Rita, bike was done before I was done .

We had a little hardware issue that didn't meet their standards so they got the replacement ordered. Patrick felt bad but he had no reason to, had nothing to do with Motorcycles Unlimited and even the good manufacturers can send out a speed bump every so often.

A shop could miss a bolt or something and you could be in bad shape so for the new ppl you can't put a price on peace of mind, guess that's a big reason why I go to Motorcycles Unlimited, peace of mind. Also I think its neat that I havnt been around super long and I get called by name when I walk in the door. That's cool

I would like to also note I looked up the item he ordered for me and he had it cheaper then I saw online with s/h. Every business opens to make money, why else would they open? There is however a difference between a business who's just out to make a dollar that day or take care of a lifetime customer.

Thx for good service Motorcycles Unlimited, hope ppl read this and try you guys out.
Regards,
Jon V

Yup. There's a reason I live in Kerrville and still call Patrick and Motorcycles Unlimited "my mechanics."

Is there a shop that can measure the shims I take off my Monster and sell me the size I need. Like if I brought in a shim and said I need one about .004" thicker they could do it?

I usually take my bike there as well, recently I had to take it to a local shop due to convenience. Let's just say that they didn't even bolt my seat back on the bike, I heard something rattling and when I got home the seat just came off. Glad it didn't come off during a turn.

I go to Motorcycles Unlimited for big things that need to get done on the bike.... I just had my back tire replaced on my bike yesterday, they noticed an issue with the chain replaced the part that was damaged and didn't charge me extra. I usually do the standard maintenance at Mancuso north.. but I think I am going to use Motorcycles Unlimited exclusively because they do good quality work. Mancuso north Charged me 900 for maintenance and LED install... and 1/2 of my bike is done good with the lights the other half... not as well.

im not 100% sure but i think shims are a dealer item and from what i understand for the big four they come straight from japan and take forever to deliver, unless the vendor you go to has them in stock.

I think the Desmo shims for my Monster are easily stocked. I was going to buy a shim kit on ebay but prefer to just buy the ones I need locally if possible.

If anyone knows of a place that can measure and sell me the ones I need let me know.

I keep all sizes for the Japanese bikes in stock.

I keep some of the sizes necessary for Ducati, both opening and closing shims, and what I don't have I usually order.

And thanks for the kind words fellas, it's much appreciated!

please, please stop being a teenager and use the word "people"....thank you, the old grumpy guy.

Oh yeah, TC is Taco Cabana....for those who went "WTF is TC for a 'rita"
If I had never been over there, I would have no clue what TC was.
