Here's where what our customers say about us:

I too cannot rate Eric highly enough. After I bought my R1200GSA privately I had a major service from the local main BMW dealership to give it a once over. The main thing they found was the hole in my wallet!

A year later I took the bike to Eric for its annual service. The bike came back from Eric feeling sharper, smoother and more responsive than it had since I bought it. And it cost me so much less than it would have done at the main dealer.

Recently I had the rear shock refurbished by Eric when it failed. Again a super service at a very reasonable cost. When I picked up the bike in the evening it wouldn't start as the battery was flat. I had suspected the battery was on it's way out. Even though Eric had closed up for the day he opened up his workshop and replaced the battery there and then. Great service. Thank you.


Mark BMW R1200GS February 2022

I had an intermittent problem with starting on my BMW 1200RT. This had also ended in blowing the front head light bulbs & stopping the screen, suspension etc working. I was given the name of ECM from a friend who had used him for his BMW GS. I arranged to ride over to Findon from Newhaven. Eric carried out a software recovery & supplied a new battery which solved problem with in an hour. I was very glad not having to go to BMW main dealer. Would recommend ECM & will use him in future.
Marcus BMW R1200RT June 2021

I had an intermittent starting problem with my Honda Goldwing..., which was infuriatingly difficult to nail. Nevertheless, Eric took it on, recovered my bike (on more than one occasion), and helped me to get it sorted. Thanks Eric! :) I know you really want me to get a BMW, but thanks for sticking with it and helping me get back running again. I cannot rate ECM Motorcycles more highly, and look forward to continuing to use this excellent local service in the future.

Richard Honda GL1800 May 2020

A big thanks to ECM for a job well done on the 36k service and puncture repair on my K13GT. My bike has a full service history, mostly with BMW, and it was a little disconcerting to see the state of my air filter which Eric is adding to his “House of Horrors” ….. it looked as though it had not been changed EVER!! It’s great to see the care and diligence that Eric puts into his work, and his costs are VERY reasonable. My bike is running like a dream now that it can breathe…. I’m a very happy customer and am recommending ECM to everyone I know. 

Greg BMW K1300GT July 2019

Just a quick ‘thank you’ once again for the tune up you so skilfully did on the R1100GS yesterday! I was amazed at the transformation you achieved with the tweeking! ?

Brodie R1100GS  June 2019

Great service again from Eric at ECM. Sorry it wasn't a BMW matey, but my Harley is running very well thank you! 

Bob Harley Davidson FLSTC 1340 June 2019

I used ECM Motorcycles for a long overdue engine service on my Triumph and I couldn’t be happier with the attention to detail and personal service I received, thanks again.

Kevin Triumph T509 June 2019

I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for your recent service on my GS. It feels like a new bike again and thanks again for your attention to detail in the service, I will certainly recommend ECM Motorcycles to all my friends .

Thanks again.
Nick R1200GS Rallye Dec 2018
Thank you for sorting the bike out. It had been standing in a shed/barn for three years so it's great to know that everything is in order. Great ride back to Surrey, everything felt slicker and spot on. 
Des R1200GS Dec 2018

After going to other so called mechanics with a running fault, I was recommend to Eric. I turned up to be met by a very friendly and helpful Eric who diagnosed fault there and then fixed it in a day and returned it to me, all at a very reasonable price. Cannot thank Eric enough and recommend enough. 

Steve R1150GS  Oct 2018

I have just had my 3rd service carried out by Eric Anderson of ECM in West Sussex. If you are in Surrey or Sussex it is worth the trip to Worthing to get your servicing done. Eric runs a K1300GT himself and he has the full BMW diagnostic kit. His rates are very reasonable and he has expertise to rival any dealer. 
One Happy Customer. 
Best Wishes all.

Peter K1200GT Sept 2018


Having been at the end of my tether with BMW agents in recent years a contact told me of ECM Motorcycles in Findon Valley. Well here we are 18 months or so on and the service & banter just gets better & better!

Eric looks after my F800GS like it was his own & any other bike I care to throw at him having bought or borrowed it too, he always tries to fit me in asap and puts up with me hanging around while the work is completed sometimes which does give confidence as a customer I must say.

I recommend ECM motorcycles to any bikers fed up with main dealer prices and general dis-interest in customer service on riders of machines beyond their warranty period.


Darren F800GS  July 2018 

Just happened to spot Eric’s new van in the Worthing area and had not been happy with BMW servicing and repairs for a while - felt the high prices charged were paying for permanent revamps of their showrooms, so made contact with him.

Had an issue with an F650GS where the engine died at temperatures above 28 degrees (Prior to recent heatwave had only happened twice in 13 months). Needed it fixed as we had a three week tour of Europe planned. Eric and diagnostic identified issue with fuel pump. Eric sourced part, carried out repair and did a full service for a very reasonable price and with real care.

2,100 miles later and French motorway temperatures of 33.5 and no problems with the bike at all.

Highly recommend ECM.

Chris F650GS July 2018

Eric is a super friendly and helpful mechanic. Makes a pleasant change from my experiences at BMW garages. If you have a BMW then Eric is the guy to see, no longer be held to ransom by the overpriced BMW technicians!             
Chris F800GT July 2018

I would like to thank you for most excellent work you have carried out on my bike; the ride home on Monday was a joy, it is as if you had carried out a heart replacement and given the bike a new lease of life (and no coolant leaks!).


This bike has always impressed me by its overall performance; the power and control never lets you down but after your magic touch, there seems to be a new degree of “urgency” and willingness to go-almost is if she wants to fly!


David K1200S June 2016


I have been on the lookout for a while for an experienced independent mechanic to help maintain my old R1150GS Adventure, someone with the necessary expertise  and knowledge one can trust with specialist jobs. I have had an issue with the final drive bearing and also needed my front callipers refurbishing, generally checking the bike over and fine tuning to prepare for a bigger trip. I found him on the internet and gave him a call and immediately he was very helpful trying to accommodate my needs and wishes. On my first visit to assess the bike, his knowledge became evident as he identified that the bearing needed replacing, but despite that he was  able to adjust the old bearing to make the rear wheel play virtually unnoticeable. When it comes to my bike, I am quite fussy, but Eric works with great care and is very thorough and immediately one feels the bike is in good hands.

He checks on exact torque settings for every bolt, has got all the specialist tools and spares at hand and when it came down to change the brake fluid on my ABS machine he knew exactly how to go about it. He even allowed me in his workshop to watch him work on my bike, which builds up a lot of trust. He was also happy to answer any questions I had while he was working. As I live 65 miles away it was also very convenient for me to get the bike seen to on the same day to avoid any costly backwards and forward travelling manoeuvres. Eric did a final check and test ride on my bike before handing it back to me. I had a very smooth ride home. I can only highly recommend him to any BMW owner who is looking for a skilled value for money BMW motorcycle expert.


Nils K. Winchester R1150GS May 2016

Excellent value even better service.

I am writing yet another recommendation for ECM. Eric has been looking after my bikes for a few years now and he just dropped my 2 bikes back to me after a service and tube replacement.

The work was done exactly to schedule and a price that should make BMW dealerships hang their heads in shame!

I am confident to use ECM for all my bike needs and highly recommend them for you too.

Thanks to Eric for your friendly professional and all round great service, very happy KTM owner running on all cylinders. Cheers sir   (Dec 2017)

A recomendation from UKGSER:

Just wanted to put up a review for Eric's fantastic service.
Since moving to Worthing getting all the way up to Steptoe's was a bit of a mission. Bit of searching on the forum and I found this post.
I've since used Eric twice, one for a full service, brakes (discs and pads) and the bike ran like a new bike again.
Couple of weeks ago I had the alternator go - diagnosed again through this wonderful forum - 
Eric sourced a replacement, came to my house to check it would work and see for himself if my diagnosis was correct and a couple of days later turned up with a bike trailer, picked the bike up and sorted it. Even brought the bike back.
His price, both times was exceptionally reasonable and the service, second to none. He's a really nice down to earth guy too.
I would 100% recommend him to any owner of a BMW in the Sussex area and beyond, top bloke, very happy customer. Will continue to use his services for as long as he is on the tools 

Cheers Eric,

Sid R1200GS (Sept 2017)

And another from UKGSER:       

+1 for Eric 

I just had my 90th GSA serviced, new tires fitted and some bling added for a long trip. Eric is very personable, always happy to take the time to explain things and to answer my rather elementary questions. Highly recommended. 
Thanks Eric             

Hugo R1200GS (Sept 2017) 

Thanks for turning me round so quickly, lovely smooth ride home. Thank you and see you soon. (Jonathan R1200 GS June 2017)

I had high expectations after speaking to Eric from ECM Motorcycles and looking at his website. I took my BMW R1200GS there for its 6000 mile service yesterday and I must say that I was not disappointed at all. Eric did a highly professional and very thorough job. I’m very pleased and I certainly will be very happy to use him again

(Terry R1200GS LC June 2017)

Not sure what magic you performed, the bike runs and feel great.

Thanks for all your great work. (Steve K1200S April 2017)

The bike ran like a train, sounded better and definitely stopped better.

Thank you for your efforts. (Richard K1300GT April 2017)

Thanks for the service, the bike runs brilliantly. I had not realised how much it had deteriorated until you worked your magic. Thanks again. (Joe F800GS Feb 2017)

Well, just had my 2006 R1200RT serviced with Eric at ECM.

Can't recommend him enough, I have the extended warranty, so Eric used Genuine BMW parts, did the full annual BMW recommended service as per BMW , so no issues with the warranty.

Brilliant service Eric, first class job too, and you get to watch/ask questions/get advice. Very reasonable on costs, lets face it lots cheaper on labour than BMW. (Seems BMW are happy charging the same for bikes as for cars these days...)

Well worth the trip down to Eric, 1.5hr ride each way for me, enjoyed the ride too so was a bonus. Bonus entertainment too from Eric's wonderful daughter, not at all shy for one so young and very chatty.... I even got a 'special' sticker that has pride of place on my numberplate....

Don't be shy and give Eric a try ... hey that rhymes!!! no seriously great service friendly advice, makes a good cuppa too... Bob 08/08/2015

Well I have taken the plunge and gone to an independant for a service on 2007 R1200RTSE, and used ECM Motorcycles in Findon West Sussex. I must say that I was most impressed with the job done AND the price, and would certainly use Eric Anderson again. If like me you are fed up with main dealer prices, give him a try !
Colin Shaw


A few weeks ago I took my new (to me) R1150RT to Eric for a service and 'health check'. He did a brilliant job and gave me a complete list of the issues with my new bike. I have ordered a few bits and he will see my bike again in a few weeks to get her in tip top condition. The bill was clear, well laid out and really reasonable. I highly recommend Eric and will be using his services again.  

Richard Yeomans

Hi all
Just to say that after looking for a while for a local specialist I asked ECM motorcycles to fix my R65 bobber which was running on only one cylinder. I'm in Emsworth and Eric picked the bike up while I was away on business and brought it back the day I got home. It now runs really well. He knows his stuff even with old bikes like mine. Give him a try. Thoroughly recommended!

Simon Payne


Eric of ECM Worthing (07979 805569) has just completed a major service and clutch replacement with a Siebenrock clutch plate for me and the bike feels like new. I'd thoroughly recommend Eric to any BMW ownerVery HappyDavid Romano


Another forum member recommended this independent mechanic to me so I duly booked the 30,000 mile service on my RT.
Being a ex mechanic myself (well as a lad anyway) I was keen to watch and learn as I am new to BMW bikes.
Eric had no problem with this so one bright sunny morning in August I took the bike to his house/workshop and for the next 5 hours (including several cups of tea) I stood and chatted and learnt from a very friendly and knowledgable guy who didn't seem to mind my occasional dumb question. So much better than dealing with some of the untrained monkeys on service desks in dealerships who sole reason for existence seems to be to get the maximum amount of money possible out of you! I was quoted £65 just for the brake fluid change! And that dealer (in Brighton) had carried out the 24000 mile service where it should have been done anyway.
And at the end the total bill £164-44 including all parts and oils inc transmission/final drive, and 4 hours labour at £25 an hour.
He is based in Findon, West Sussex, and I will defiantly be using him again.

ECM Motorcycles 07979 805569 - Highly recommended. Andy.


Just had my bike back from service too. Eric fitted mt 2010 RT in at short notice as I'm off soon on a trip. It was my first visit after reading recommendations on here. Plesent chap and reasonable charges with good documentation of work done. Nice to be able to discuss what needed to be done and he even sorted out my faulty cruise control.
The bike is running so sweetly now.
I'm back to him soon for some aux electrical work. He has tyre fitting facilities too if you need that.
Recommend whole heartily
