Motorcycle Shop Recommendation SW side?

I know this has been asked a million times before, but I am still having trouble finding a good shop. I used to go to Andy at Metric before he closed down but now I don't know who to try other than Motorcycles Unlimited which is a bit out of the way.

I ride a triumph and live near the galleria. Can anyone recommend a reliable shop that can replace a few parts for me and do some maintenance (replace tires, oil change, etc)?

Motorcycles Unlimited is worth the drive. Patrick has never done me dry.

I've used Airline Cycle Center a few times when I lived in town. Never had a problem with them and they are dirt cheap. They are just north of 610 off of 45.

Thank you for the information guys. I've been to JD Cycles and had a bad experience.

Can anyone else vouch for Airline Cycle Center or Motorcycle Exchange?

Yep. He has worked on quite a few bikes for me. 67' Triumph, Aprilia Tuono, Husqvarna 510. He has always done a great job.

Tommy at the Houston Motorcycle Exchange is a stand up guy. I would recommend him without hesitation. We are a sponsor for MH here at Cycle Shack, but if Patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited is too far we are too! I do offer huge parts discounts on brands we sell if you need parts.

If transportation is a problem I can get you there, I just retired so I am pretty flexible.
I have hauled many bikes to and from the track and to various shops

Thank you very much for the offer and I will keep you in mind for next time. I have plenty of beer if you accept that as payment

The bike is rideable so I will make the trek.

Do yourself a favor and stay far away from Motoworld Powersports in Rosenberg. No matter what google reviews say.
