In all honesty I can count two of the sponsor's on here that do a great job on anything.

What specifically are you looking for? Maintenance, upkeep etc... that's pretty general and a reputable shop will be able to complete the services.

I am fortunate to work even closer then I live to Motorcycles Unlimited. I've seen everything under the sun in that shop. What I appreciate(from a tech's standpoint) they are honest about the bike even when Im the one that is doing something wrong with it.



I dont want to bash dealers but we had a service writer from bmw go to be the Woodlands HD service manager. After the first day he left and was discusted.

You Sir, are correct.
I was wrong, I can admit that now. I am a big enough person to admit my mistakes and allow the world to know that, as shocking as it is, I can be wrong.






Just not very often.

Besides, Angleton/Alvin what's the difference?

I should be more specific...

I'm looking for someone who knows pretty much all there is to know about the care and feeding of a S1 or X1.

I have a hard on for a tuber Buell but know absolutely nothing about them.

I am more then willing to pay them for 30 minutes of there time and knowledge base but but I want to make sure they know their older Buells well.

Personaly I can desiminate more knowledge then most people care to know about Mercedes from the mid-70's to present and that is what I am looking for but about tube frame Buells.

And no, I haven't tried either shop other then to buy some used Harley parts for my Russian bike but can tell you that Twisted is way freindlier...

Triumph Came first. harley would be a version of Triumph, not the other way around. Also the bikes were designed differently due to the country of origin. When harley stated making bikes the interstate age was upon the US so they made bikes that were more comfortable for long distance straight roads. The brits made lighter more nimble bikes because of the more curvy roads in that country. Regardless of make, all old bikes have to be constantly maintained, so about this or that old bikes reliability is moot. My Triumph will out handle any harley you throw at it, and leave plenty of them in the dust.

1883 is when triumph began (the company that became triumph) vs. 1903. . . hmmmm exactly a 20 year jump.
1886 is when the Triumph name replaced the Bettman name
