I have had several different models of bikes, from several different manufactures.
The best shop around is a independent shop that is mostly H-D based.
I buy my tires online,and they admit they cannot match the prices. I give them a call to set up a date/time. I pick up the oil filter and what ever oil I want to run on the way there that day. It all gets done at a fair price in the time they told me. 2 tires mounted, balanced, oil change 2 hours $65 bucks and out the door I went.
Last I was there 2 weeks ago he had a Duc up on the table working on the injectors.
A good shop, that you know and that knows YOU, will work on most what ever you can drag in.
Like was said before, good small shops cant afford to turn away any work.
You find a good shop, you stick with them. Yeah, they have a backlog of work.
P.S They will also drop everything if you are on the road to do what needs to be done to get you going again. Yeah, I seen it and had to wait...which was ok.
