Moved to Auburn, WA from Miami, FL earlier this year. Is there anyone here who can recommend a good shop in a reasonable distance? I called a dealership I found off Google to ask if I could set up an appointment for an oil change and the service guy told me I had to leave my bike for 2 days.. 2 days when I don't even know these people and it's JUST an oil change?.. Total bullshit.

I ended up changing my own oil.. and I'm perfectly fine doing that but at some point I'm going to want to do some more work on the bike that's out of my scope and I'd like to know of a good shop :/

I called: Hinshaw's Motorcycle

http://www.hinshawsmotorcyclestore.com/

The guy sounded pretty rude too. I told him "Two days for an oil change?" and he said "Yep." flat out. Nothing else. I left a comment in their "Contact" section of their site too explaining the situation and didn't even get a reply. Doesn't sound like the kind of place I'd want to give my business.

Yeah, so far I'm loving the weather over here. I left Miami to come work for Amazon. I haven't had a whole lot of chances to go riding around this year since I've been pretty busy at work but I wanted to start hitting the track over here.. any cool people to hook up with would also be nice.

yeah, i wouldn't let hinshaw's touch my bike. granted i do most everything myself anyway but, not them for sure.

Both places get a lotta rain, but you'll have twists now. You're near naked in Seattle.
lulz

rainy season just started, enjoy the one day a week of dry you'll get from now until about...july 4th.

good tracks, good roads but the roads take awhile to get to. there's short stuff local but the real fun stuff is 1-3 hours away
