Here's a new business that might be of interest to you. It's called Essential Motorcycle Services (http://www.essentialmotorcycleservices.ca/) and they provide a drive in/drive out service (kinda like Mr. Lube, no appointments) for oil change, tires and brakes. It's an interesting concept that might interest some of you. Another unique aspect (which is not mentioned on their website) is that I'm told that all of the employees are women, if that matters to any of you.

Country Slicker, what did they charge, and how long did it take to get that done? A friend of mine knows the peeps that set it up, and being an apartment dweller living not too far from them (and their shop on my route to and from work) I have been thinking of using their services.

Cheers,

Kai

it was $90 for the semi-synthetic oil and filter change, a chain adjustment and lube, and creating a connection and running the wire from my battery to the handlebars for my new gps. i might have been in there for maybe 45 minutes...likely because i was standing around drinking their coffee and telling/listening to stories. it really was a very pleasant experience and the washroom was CLEAN!!

FYI: One of the mechanics (Cherie) from EMS was very seriously injured in a motorcycle vs truck crash earlier this month. She is going to be hospitalized for the next couple months at least due to a broken back etc. Even so, the shop is still open and going strong. I stopped in today to get an oil change done and to get a little help hooking up a new GPS on my wee-strom. They were very helpful with the GPS and now I have a GPS that actually functions properly!

vancouver mechanic

I'd like to put in a plug for a great mechanic who will do house calls. My new weestrom wouldn't start and the dealer expected me to hire a truck to deliver the bike. Having only 3,000 km on it I figured, not worth it. A friend found DJ Paul for me. He called me right back and said before making a call he would talk me through the "idiot" steps first. Needless to say, the clutch cable came unplugged, not something I would know about. Voila, bike started, out I went. Next problem I call Paul, you can too: *** *** ****.

I have nothing but good things to say about EMS. I have had my oil changed, 75.00 for full synth AMSOil. Done in about 15 mins, and they were great. I have since dropped by a couple of other times to get chain checked (no where at my building to do it, living in an apartment can really bite some times). Every time I have been there they were fast, courteous, and just fun to chat with.

Oh, and an update Cherie. She can mover her toes and feet, and is supposed to be moved to GF Strong soon for rehab (that is if my memory serves me correctly). When you're there, be sure to drop a few bucks into the Cherie Fund Jar.
