Impressions?

Service?

Mine: Sportrider www.sportriderinc.com
Altoona, WI (Eau Claire area)
90 miles away
Owner is great, knows me by name, rides a 675, and will talk an ear off given a chance. He's very knowledable about what the shop can and can't do. Parts come FAST! They have no problem shipping parts to me. I get a discount on most stuff in the store.
A+ in my book! :drink:

Good parts inventory and will get factory and aftermarket Triumph stuff quickly, but be prepared to pay full retail.

I don't know how good thier service is, I do all my own work. Definately not as detailed S3 knowledge as I would like. They did the brake fix on HiVel's bike - and it works.

Service guys ride S3's and so does one of the salesmen.

They are active in the local Euro bike scene and set up track days at Barber Motorsports Park regularly.

Solid B+

Well, i have 1 about 10 minutes from where I work. Libbys motoworld. http://libbysmotoworld.com/new.htm I have heard NOTHING but nightmare stories from people about the pricing and work.. so not only did i not buy there I wont get service even though its 10 minutes away..

The new player about 40 minutes from me Gengras motorcycles. http://www.gengrasmotorcycles.com/they are brand new, they bought the Triumph and BMW lines from a long time shop canton cycles. havent heard anything on them yet but I hear there american motorcycle service is top notch and their Duc service is reliable..

I go almost 2 hours away to see Alex at Branchville Motors http://www.branchville.com/ an old time Triumph guy and reasonable for gear and service its been done when he says it will be and nothings fallen off after i pick her up... nice guy to BS with too.

I looked at Libby's when I bought my Speed 3, but they didn't impress me. I ended getting my bike from Canton. I'm going to check out Gengras and see what's up this spring.

Have to give a shout out and a hearty thumbs up to Cascade Moto Classics in Beaverton. I've been dealing with them for over 10 years and have nothing but good to say. Family owned and by a very nice family at that. Great service and a friendly atmosphere. Also sponsors of one of the biggest and best RAT packs around.

Even when I crashed right outside their window it was amazing. Bob the sales manager and Scott one of the local Rat Pack rushed right across the busy highway and rolled my injured baby back into the shop. Wouldn't even let me help them. Kelly the owner was helpful and sympathetic. Janice his wife is the closest thing I know of to my own Mother, and their daughter Tara is a sweetheart. Even Liz the parts girl is nice to me, and that takes something special. Their service department has been know to do back flips, front flips, and stunts for their customers. Good people.

Then there's Portland Motorcycle Company on the other side of town. Closer to me, but I wouldn't recommend them to a crooked politician. Nothing but bad news, from everybody I know who's dealt with them. Including me.

Anyway, that's my opinion.

Accolade motorsports, Mixed feelings, they're great when you go down and spend money real friendly good guys. Not only when you spend money. But service seems really slow and unorganized. I made an appountment two weeks in advance for a fork seal change, when I showed up and dropped the bike off, they had no fork seals in stock. When I came back they broke one of my fork dampening rods. Ordered a non existent part, then finally got the right part. But, they gave me a demo Bonnie to ride while Speedy was under construction. They're pretty new with Triumph form what Iv'e heard. But general concensus is, nice guys, service is a bit of a joke.
I'll be giving them another chance for my 12k service.

For my area (western NC/upstate SC/east tenn), nobody beats Myers Ducati/Triumph (http://www.myersmotorcycles.com). These guys have awesome service, good prices, and are all enthusiastic riders. I bought a two-year-old consignment bike from them, and they've treated me like I just picked up a 1098.

lonestar motorcylces in austin. good people. Randy the service guy is awesome: easy to get a hold of, good about taking care of your bike, does good work. Took a while to rebuild my engine 'cause parts took longer than I would have thought but they were all very nice and very helpful. Definately recommend them to anyone in central Texas. Be sure to ask for Randy. Turned my bike from an oil burning beast to a bonafide crotch missle.

Sunstate Motorcycles, Sunshine Coast, Australia :jerkit:. The worst dealer I have ever dealt with. No product knowledge, no interest in bikes, overpriced and with total lack of after sales help. :finger: It's a good job I love this bike, or I would have changed brands some time ago. I have taken it to Paul Feeneys on the Gold Coast (a 350 kilometre round trip) for the services and brake fix. These are really good guys, Welshrob put me in touch as he runs their RAT pack and they actually seem to care.

Brisans in Newcastle Australia. Salesmen are friendly, mechanics are not. Turned nasty when I mentioned the brake fix. Should of seen his face when I told him I rang Triumph Australia myself to check what the go was. :devil:. Ordered the parts though, only been waiting 3 weeks and counting.

Peter Stevens Motorcycles in Dandenong, Victoria.....I've been going there for years. Bought my last 3 bikes from them. Chris Lee is the salesman I deal with, a real good guy, Terry in accessories is a great guy, very helpfull with plenty of time for his customers and Stewart and Adrian in the service department are very helpful and interested in their customers. They are one branch of one of the biggest motorcycle dealers in Australia, but they always have time to make you feel welcome.
