    Default Recommended Mechanics

    The following is a list of mechanics that the TRC community for whatever reason recommend.

    Your starter for ten is a post made by Foxy:

    Incidentally Hitchcocks have demonstrated to me some of the finest customer service I have experienced and the most efficient mail order people I have ever done business with.
    So do you have any recommendations, post them here. Don't forget to include where they are located also if you can, and they have one, please include a link to their site.

    Um, they're not mechanics, they just do parts and suchlike. Very well though

    Kent Motorcycles. Solus Honda dealer. They're very good and they give a shit.

    It's the only place I'd wholeheartedly recommend. It's about 150 miles from me though.

    Don't want to sound big headed but can I say me? (Ducks for cover from expected barrage of stones, rotting foodstuffs and verbal abuse. )

    I work at a small independant bike shop in Sunbury-on-Thames, Middlesex. We do all kinds of service work and repairs to all Japanese bikes, Triumphs, Ducatis and most other bikes and scooters. We sell most spares and can order just about anything we don't stock. We also have a small selection of second hand bikes and new scooters for sale.

    We're happy for people to pop in just to say hello and have a chat, ask questions etc.

    Royston Edwards Performance & Service

    Very good place to take your bike, husband wife team run it, although they are now doing well enough to have a couple of lads in as well.

    I've had my bike serviced there for the last 4 years and am very happy with the charges and service.

    Royston has a back ground in the BSB pits, so knows how to set up an engine.

    When my OH got into bikes the best bit was the he talked to her about the bike, not me. Most of the places she'd been to before ignored her unless I was there.

    The shop is about 30 minutes from Newport, an hour from Cardiff, about an hour from Bristol, nice and handy to the M4.
