Dealer recommendations please

We recently moved into Ridgeway Ontario and are enjoying the Niagara Region. I need to get some work done on the RT and would appreciate thoughts on who provides the best service in the area. Budds is the closest but Wolf BMW is apparently a dedicated bike shop.

Re: Dealer recommendations please

I bought my bike at Wolf BMW and think they have always treated me fairly, I enjoy going there. Compared to the multiline Japanese bike shop I use to go to they are light years ahead in customer service. If you purchased your bike from them they provide a loaner while it is being serviced. To be honest I don't know anything about Budd so they may be just as good.

Thanks Gerhard, The idea that Wolf is a dedicated BMW bike shop is appealing so I will probably give them a try.

Re: Dealer recommendations please

Man, you guys are lucky being able to pick and choose. I use the dealership that's only seventy miles one way because the next closest is about two hundred fifty miles.

Well we are lucky in so many ways but not all dealers are good. I'd gladly ride the 250 if I was sure the dealer would do the work correctly. I've just moved into this area and the dealer from who I bought the bike is a little over two hundred miles away. They used to be really good but the dealership was sold and is now not the place I would willingly take my bike. Hence the request for a dealer recommendation. I've heard good things about Wolf BMW and plan to give then a call. According to map source that will be more than a three hour ride each way.
