new to Seattle

Just moved from Chicago to Seattle. My 2000 R1100 RT will be getting here in a couple weeks. I need to have some service done when it arrives.

Who do you recommend in the area?

thanks!

Live in Oregon now, after 58 years in Washington, and for all the time they have been there, Ride West has always been very helpful & extremely thorough in their service department. Good people.

Re: new to Seattle

Good to know! I'll check in with them. I tried calling yesterday or the day before and couldn't get through, so I was afraid they'd moved or gone under.

Thanks for the input. Glad there are some good people out here to work with.

I like Mick Vallantine:

I like working directly with the owner of the business. Great service and always a story or two. If you need a reference he works of the WSP bikes.
