    los angeles county is a big area....not knowing where you are,

    in terms of dealers that are open sunday (maybe they'll be able to help in some way even if their service dept is closed):

    new century bmw in south pasadena/alhambra area
    http://www.ncbmwmotorcycles.com

    in the hollyweird area

    the other area dealerships are closed on sundays/mondays usually (irv seaver, brown bmw, long beach bmw).

    Thanks Joel. It's a bit of a drive , I live in Calabasas, but I'd prefer an independent. I'll give him a call.

    RPM Cycles in Ventura. Used to be a BMW dealer before the million dollar boutique dealerships. Now an indy repair shop.

    LOl, I couldn't agree more! I've been in there and since I bought my bike somewhere else, they wouldn't give me the time of day!

    I went there today and the lady didn't seem very interested in getting my business. Maybe I'll try RPM.

    Hands down the best service you will get/find.

    He also does pick up and drop off for a fee, if you have the means then you could maybe meet halfway, or drop it off and have it delivered when done etc.

    It is worth going the extra distance because once you see his work you will understand he goes the extra mile.

    Unlike many of the other shops I have been too (Berts, De Lamo, Brown BMW) where I was charged for what appeared to be work that was not done at the time, or marginally at best. With Lior you get what you pay for, and in most cases more. If there is something small that he see's while working on the bike he might fix it cause he is just there.

    PM Sito, Lior was able to fix the rats nest of a wiring issue he had with his 525 after having a bunch of work done in it by another shop. Typical example.

    I talked to him today. A good guy. Gave some tricks to try to save me a trip, possibly.
