Thumbs up West Valley Cycle in Winnetka, CA

I had a little mishap in Early February when a lady decide to sideswipe me on the RT.
I had the bike towed to West Valley Cycle, one of the oldest BMW dealerships, and one of the few still family owned.
During the 2 long months it took to get the bike repaired (darn insurance) West Valley Cycle gave me a loaner bike. Well, at first they lent me a RT but the tires needed to be replaced so they lent me a F800GS, which I had to return because someone was interested in test riding it and potentially buy it. Then I was given a F800GT and I had a blast commuting on that tiny, agile, and peppy little bike.
I was never out of a bike for my commute during the 9 weeks my RT was in the shop
I reluctantly returned it when my RT was ready...
Kudos to Ruth and John at West Valley Cycle for being such kind and generous people.

By the way, they are now desperately looking for either a BMW certified Technician or an apprentice who wants to work on BMW bikes and the shop will send him/her to training for the certification.
There are located at 20212 Saticoy St, Winnetka, CA 91306, and their phone is (818) 341-7221.
