    Mick Valanitne performed the scheduled 12,000 mile service on my 2004 R1150GS today. I was very pleased with the service I got from him. I was very pleased with what he charged me for the service.

    He even suggested I buy my own tires on the internet, have them drop-shipped to his addy, and put them on for me for a very reasonable price (two-didgits).


    He must have a contract with the State police as there were 5 police RT's there.


    I'll definitely go back.

    He may with the state police, becase RW treats the police like shit and back burners the bikes because they don't buy them from them.

    Good to know on the tires, too!

    Hack Chew Lee,

    The Seattle Motor Officers ride Harley Davidson Road King Police Issue bikes.

    Some love 'em, some hate 'em. The department buys them thanks to a healthy aftermarket and a strong marketing department. They used to be outfitted with Kawi KZ1100's which had a resale of $500 at auction with 50K miles.

    I hesitated on buying one and regret it.


    State police ride RT's. I wish they had HD's, I'd get away better.
