Best place to get maintenance done?

I saw in another thread about this but wasnt sure.

I just got my 2013 CBR500R and the guy said he didnt do much maintenance on the bike previously. I want to take it to a good place to get it looked over and ran through.

I know it needs an Oil Change, im going to wash it tonight. I am going to hit the chain with Motul Chain Cleaner and a Grunge Brush and follow it up with Motul Chain Lube.

I think it needs new tires (about 7K miles) and maybe breaks done.

What are your guys suggestions on a place to get this done that wont leave me "Gaping"?

Little known secret about Patrick and Motorcycles Unlimited: If you rub his head you'll get an extra 10% parts and labor.

The only hugs worth making that drive for are mouth hugs.
