I feel the need to express and share my experiences with some of our local bike shops. When dealing with fair rates, personal attention and a professional attitude there are none…. just joking… yeah I got jokes… no really, a couple of shops that are great to deal with are MSpeed and 5th Gear.
Marbod over at MSpeed is a consummate professional and knows just about everything you need to get you on the road or track. If he’s not ripping around the track cutting wicked lap times he is in the shop making sure his customers are totally satisfied. Anytime I have a question I just call up Marbod or bring my ride on down and he is always helpful and knowledgable. Every time I bring any one of my 6 bikes down to MSpeed they do a good job and in a timely manner. That stuff goes a long way with me.
If you want a custom and different approach and look to your ride, Bill over at 5th Gear is the guy to hook you up. Just remember patients, he will make sure you are satisfied. Bill is very passionate about his custom bikes and he can do some cool shit (with the bikes) that will put a smile on your face (insert joke here). He built a custom tail section for my CBR 900 that has enabled me to take my Stunt riding to another level that otherwise I would have still been struggling with now. He also helped me build my Super Motard that is an absolute riot to ride and race (and even more fun when kicking Bills ass on the track.... oops inside voices again). I have sent many a friend to see Bill about custom applications and they always come away satisfied with their cool new ride.
I just want to thank Marbod at MSpeed and Bill at 5th Gear for all their help and time.
