Lets here some reccomendations for good shops, mechanics, dealers ect in our area! This would be good to help anyone out looking to get thier bike worked on ect and not wanting to get boned in the process.
Here are my experiences:


Mountain Performance Cycle (Longmont, CO)
For major engine work, he can even machine his own parts. Tom is a classy guy. Runs his shop at his house. He does work for the AMA and MRA. He rebuilt my engine after the headaches I have been through without one single gripe. He quoted me a price over the phone when we first talked about workin on my bike. He stuck with the quote the whole time. I came in just a bit more than the original quote because he replaced a couple gears.
I don't want to post his ph# but if you are interested in having him work on your bike (he likes bare engines, not the whole bike BTW) email me at [email protected]

Perfomance Cycle (Denver, CO)
These guys are very helpfull for parts, apparel, oil ect. Anything from Hardleys to Ducati's. They are a tad on the pricey side but worth a stop by. They are willing to help you make a right decision on fitting ect. They do have good sales though, be sure to check them out at the end of the season for clearances. I got a Fieldsheer 2 piece for about a total of 600.00 bucks from them at a end of the year sale.

Erico Powersports (Denver, CO)
Yes these guys are a Triumph dealer. They sell a big amount of used bikes though. Ton's of wrecked and used parts. They also do good on new OEM parts (For any bike imaginable). They have a Dyno and a good shop. They are a tad pricey but I have herd one of the best Suzuki mechanincs in the state works there.

Excel Motorsports (Denver, CO)
At least the one off of Colfax is awful. Avoid these people like the plauge. I have had my bike in there for warranty work so many times I cannot count them all. Thier Sales people are flat out liars in my dealings with them. Thier shop is shit. They say they do things and then do not come through. They even fucked my bike up when replacing one of my many CCT so bad it ended up splitting a cam in half! STAY AWAY!!!!

Anyway that is something to get started with. I have herd from many of you about other good shops and dealers but I never delt with them so feel free to let us know your experience!

For anyone up north...

GP Powersports has treated me very well. They are an aftermarket parts source and they consign used bikes, they are not a dealer. They are also one of my sponsors.

They used to be called The Parts Place, but changed name/ownership this year. Mark Parkinson is the new owner, he loves bikes and is a former MRA racer. He is also the owner of Parkinson Automotive here in town. Parkinson Automotive has been voted Best Automotive Shop in Fort Collins 5 years in a row (Fort Collins Coloradoan survey) so he knows how to treat his customers. He has bent over backwards for me and I would appreciate any opportunities you all would give him to earn your business.
