Not surprised it closed at all. The service was going down hill fast. I started taking my bikes, Ducati and Aprilla, there when Bobby still ran it. He ran a tight shop. When he said something would be done on a certain day it was. No run around / no excuses.
When it changed ownership, at first the service remained the same however it started slipping.

By service, I'm not talking about the mechanic, but the way the shop was run. I always trusted the mechanic, great guy.

My last service, my bike was in there for a month before they even began working on it. Got a different excuse every time I called or stopped in to check in. I had them repair what was mandatory and the other work I held off. On this one job alone they missed out on about $1,500 in work alone.

I stopped bring my bikes in there because of this, communication was terrible as well...

I suspect other costumers had similar issues. It's too bad because I love supporting mom and pop type shops over dealers.

Looking for a new place to have my aprillia and ducati worked on.

Oil change, suspension adjustment, and broken shifter return spring. Always responsive and always professional

IIRC he does the major belt service intervals also
