As part of a review of our business, we have come to a difficult decision;
From 1st September 2023 we will no longer be carrying out ANY mechanical work (inc servicing) on BMW S series (S1000S/R/RR/XR) and F series (F650/700/750/800/850) motorcycles.
This is due to a lack of technical information available from BMW and the need for VERY expensive special tools which are increasingly required to keep these bikes running at their best.
This change will allow us to focus on our core business of BMW R series (R1100/1150/1200/1250)
Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused.
Due to your continued support and the growth in the business over the last year, we have unfortunately, reached the VAT threshold and as result we will be forced to become another unpaid tax collector for HMRC.
We appreciate that this will put extra pressure on everyone’s already stretched finances. To try to help, we will be keeping our labour rate same as it has been for the last three years but obviously plus VAT from 1st Jan 2023. However, this will still mean that we offer excellent value when compared to our main dealer competitors who are charging more than double our rates.
Look forward to seeing you again soon.

Covid Update 03/11/2020
Just want to let everyone know that during the new lockdown starting this week, we will continue to provide our services to all key workers and anyone who needs to keep their bikes running during this difficult time.
I thought I should update everyone on our current status.
We are open and intend to continue as long as possible. We want to be able to support ‘Key Workers’ to enable them to get around and continue their invaluable work and to do this we are offering them a discount on our already low labour rates.
As far as our working environment is concerned, I am a ‘one man band’, I work on my own in the workshop so I will not be infecting anyone at work. When bikes are dropped off, I maintain ‘Social Distancing’ of at least two meters, to keep myself and my customers safe.
We are here to help everyone make the best of the enforced time off and get those jobs sorted ready for a full return to activity we all
It has been the subject of much discussion on the internet about whether or not we should continue to ride. I feel that keeping ourselves covered (Helmet & gloves etc) and NOT congregating in groups, large OR small, will reduce the risk of spreading the infection.
Although motorcycling is a generally social activity, in the current situation I feel we should keep everyone as safe as possible but also, we should not forget the mental health benefits’, when you consider the benefits of motorcycling, the fresh air and the surge of endorphins that riding provides.
Stay Safe, Stay Well (Mentally as well as physically)
As part of our drive to improve customer service, we are pleased to accept debit / credit cards (Sorry No American Express)
