Service shops?

Hey all,
Quick question. I am looking for a service shop to do some of the maintenance on the bike that I don't feel comfortable doing myself. I used to use Stubbs on Airline Dr. (SE Houston) before moving to the Heights and am looking for a place a bit closer/easier to get to.
I had gone to ExImports to have them replace the front tire, and I have to take it back b/c the brakes are rubbing too much on the front rotors.
If anyone has any suggestions, I'd appreciate it greatly! Thanks!

Patrick and Motorcycles Unlimited FTMFW!

On a less superficial note, Motorcycles Unlimited is the kind of shop you'll want to continue doing business with for years. They will know you and know your bike, and be able to provide the best service available at great prices. To me, building a trusting relationship with a mechanic is important. I dont know enough about bikes, service and repairs to not be weary of all mechanics, sometimes I worry that I could be (and have been) ripped off. With Patrick and the gang at Motorcycles Unlimited, you won't have that concern. You'll be able to trust them and have utter satisfaction with the work.

Just my .02

I'd love to know the details about that one.

I for one know that you can't please everyone. However, Patrick seems to have an uncanny ability to make a diverse group of difficult individuals satisfied. Take a look into his "sponsor section" and see all the positive remarks.

I checked on Metric Motorcycles, and they are very close to where I live which is exciting. I work some hectic hours, so I find it difficult to take it to shops that are out of the way.

Much appreciated!

Andy's a good guy as well. Quite opinionated, but a good mechanic I'm certain.
