Good shops in Victoria

Hey Westerners, I'm heading for Victoria shortly. My route out is going to be about 6,000 kms from Ontario and I'll be needing to get an oil change before I head back East. Anyone recommend a trustworthy shop in Victoria?

Sorry, I don't know much about shops in Victoria, but there is a thread on a new service in Vancouver:

https://www.stromtrooper.com/showthread.php?t=23247

The shop is Essential Motorcycle Services (Http://www.essentialmotorcycleservices.ca/). They are open 7 days a week. One Stromtrooper, Country-Slicker already used them, and was very pleased with their work.

Hey Heavy,

There are lots of good shops in Victoria. One that stands out for me is
Action Motorcycles - 1234 Esquimalt Road. They are a Honda Yamaha dealer who just took on Suzuki. Seems like a good shop.

OR, even better, we can do the O/C and give your bike the full once over in my garage. I'm fully equipped and have a lift so we can do anything that has to be done. Let me know what you need and I'll have it here ready for you.

If your into that PM me and we can work out a time. I have tons of time off so it should work out dandily. And my shop buys lunch.

It would be great to meet you.
