Default Recommended Bike Shops etc in the EAR Area.

Think we should have a sticky thread on this subject so that the good folks from EAR can recommend places to get their bikes fixed or serviced locally. But only if you've actually used them. Perhaps could we have one of them there map thingys to find them easier at a glance in your area.

For me I use Carl Harrison over at Harleston. He specializes in Ducati but will work on anything. He really knows his stuff and won't rip you off. Nice bloke too. 01379 852020

Wrentham Bike Shed just outside Beccles. Top bloke, proper back street bike garage and well priced. He was more than happy to show me stuff as he'd done it and I'd use him again on the bigger stuff that I can't do at home.

Also Hammond Tyres in Halesworth. Had my Roadsmarts fitted there towards the end of last year. Great service, I could watch the process and they were happy for me to do so so I knew they were being careful. Good price too on the ride-in-ride-out service.

Big +1 on these guys - I have used them for the whole 6 years I have been riding for my road tyres - not sure whether Keith will want to be touching my spoked wheels on the DRZ though!

I remembered you saying they were good Skip, that's why I gave them a try. I'll be going back to them when I need to, although, the Roadsmarts are still looking good after over 6 months riding. But that's a whole other thread.

Well from now on I'll definitely be putting any work by way of 'Bikes n Trikes n stuff' in Peterborough - great guys, proper bikers, and sensible rates.
I hate places that try to hard sell, or call me madam, or alternativly treat me like a thick girlie, make me really uncomfortable.
The guy here looked at my bike and said 'I hate ****ing imports' - top bloke
