Re: GTA Bike Shops

I honestly have never had a problem with them at all, always a smooth transaction and if I needed any custom gear for myself or a friend, it was done quickly.

Re: GTA Bike Shops

The Motorcycle Store - Always deal with Rick. If you want I can call him for you and you'll be taken care of, PM me if you looking for something specific. Everyone that I sent there came out with a big grin on their face.
TMS The Motorcycle Store
1399 Sedlescomb Drive
Miss, Ontario (dundas/dixie) 905-602-8666
he sold me so much stuff and gave a good deal on everything. Most recent Front and rear stand for 140, no tax, cash. VEry good mechanic too. Call him and let me know if its a good hookup. I just use this guy everytime because I can just go in to the back where they fix bikes and talk, relax, watch a guy work on my bike, talk to the mechanic while he works on it... good service in my opinion.

Has anyone heard of SB Cycle? I'm in NS looking for a shark visor and they seem to be the only ones that have them, but they were less than eager to help.

Re: GTA Bike Shops

Mcbride cycle is the worst store not just in Toronto, but the universe.

Check out also:

Pro6Cycle - For getting bike work done.
CycleWorld West - Service is pretty gay, but they have a large shop with lots of inventory.
BramptonCycle - Same comment as CycleWorldWest

Re: GTA Bike Shops

Well its not really the GTA but up in Barrie (off of Molson Park Drive) there is a shop called Royal Distributing. They als have shops in Guelph and Sudbury, but ive never been to those. They are a very good shop, and they have everything from performance parts to jackets. Anything you need they have.

Re: GTA Bike Shops

I work for a Suzuki dealership out in Oakville, no bikes yet, but the owner is working on getting them (something about retarded dealer insurance on bikes). If/when that happens I'll try to setup some kind of discounts for site users on parts/labour and such.
