Beemer Shop - in business or not

Having some issues with my Wilber shocks in my 05 LT. Been trying to get in contact with the Beemer Shop, where I got them. Leaving messages, no responses. Are they still in business??

I'm assuming that you mean Ted Porter's Beemer shop http://www.beemershop.com/

It seems to be up and running. Try sending an e-mail and see what happens. There's links on his site.

Email links do not work. I will keep trying by phone next week and if no response come to the collective wisdom of this site. Still no return calls from the Beemer Shop or Ted Porter.

Will keep you posted.

Did you send an email and have it returned undeliverable? I just went to the site and the links work and open up an email in Outlook...

I was at the shop 2 weeks ago and Josh the service manager said they were moving to another location in Scotts Valley just up the road from their present location. Might be that phones and computers are in transit during the move.

It is good to hear they are still around. My bike is blowing fork seals (3 x in 18k miles) and I want to discuss that issue with them. thanks for your help.

Ted called. We are working on the problem. Not sure it is a shock issue. Stay tuned.
