    Independant servicing

    Hi guys been absolutely ages since Ive been on. My old R1200gs has been neglected for a while and is in need of a good service shake down, I have bahnstormer and Vines Guildford within reach but was wondering if there was an independent guy offering servicing that might do it for a more reasonable price. I'm a bit out of touch of whats available. Any suggestions? thanks Terry

    Steptoe of this parish although I am not sure he'd appreciate being called an 'old guy'.

    He has serviced my r1150gs for a few years now and is a real guru.

    I am sure he will see the funny side he seems to have a good sense of humour

    And he will lend you a classic K100RT while your bike is being serviced.
