    Ye George is really great,gave my bike a birthday after I bought it.Worked like a Trojan all day long on it.Reasonable cost to.He is going to do some more work on the carbs to get her running sweet as they are worn and need some tweaking.He garantees his work and if your not happy he will come back and fix it for free.

    George did some work for me today. Absolutely superb service, communication and a genuine interest in doing what's best for my bike and my budget. My only regret is not finding Motorcycle Doctors sooner, but that's another story.

    I'll keep using him and would suggest you do the same if you're looking for a workshop service that doesn't treat you like a job-card.

    Thumbs up Motorcycle Doctors - excellent service

    Just thought I'd let you know about my experience with George from Motorcycle Doctors.

    What an absolute delight, he did the 10,000km service on my 04 R1 just prior to Christmas - great service and great price. The single biggest thing that I appreciated the most was that he actually speaks to you and doesn't let you feel that it is below him or a waste of his time in doing so. I'm sure most average Joe's can appreciate this isn't really all that common at a dealler - sure the Sales Guy is more than happy to talk but try and have a conversation with the mechanic and it's not very comfortable (especially if you're not that mechanical yourself).

    What really tipped the scales for me and made me want to put this thread up is that yesterday I had 2 missed calls (but no voicemessage) from a number I didn't recognise. I recieved another call from the number this morning and loe and behold it was George just ringing to check that I was happy and everything was great with the bike. THATs 3 phone calls just to check that I'm happy.

    To me that is EXCEPTIONAL CUSTOMER SERVICE - thank you George - you will get all of my business!

    .... back in green and feeling great ....

    I have to agree, he came out and serviced my bike yesturday, it needs a new chain, and some rubber sleeve which he's coming back out to me to fit at cost- no extra charge for coming back out......I must say i'm pretty impressed!

    He's bloody good alright. I rang him on Monday, he said he was due back at work on Wednesday but was booked up all week. I got a call yesterday afternoon, he had some spare time and was able to fit me in (so to speak).

    My only gripe is that George keeps telling me that my bike needs a clean . It's just fine the way it is George, dirty is good .

    I'd suspect it varys a little from bike to bike so give him a call - he quoted me over the phone so I knew what I was up for before I made the booking.

    My single biggest reservation in recommending him is that he's so good as word spreads it'll get harder and harder to get a booking - damn word of mouth!!!!

    I found him to be a bit cheaper- and I trust him to do a better job than a shop, he really took his time with my bike, went over every square inch, without rushing it, he was straight-up with me, and super convenient him coming to me.
    I'm a walking talking advertisement for the guy now. I will always use him I think now he's too particular not to. Every bike shop iv'e ever been to just seem to rush it and over-charge and can't wait to get you out the dorr.

    now this is cheaper than Mt Eden motorcycles

    Ive only heard good things about him and the fact that he come to us is a big help!

    Thanks for the info

    I saw you missed the Northland Loop on the weekend but then saw you post about George in another thread.

    I assume your carbs are now sorted and your a happy camper?
