    I used to ride years and years ago 13 to be exact. I am looking for a good mechanic for my just purchased F650. Help.

    If you are in the Seattle area, Mick Vanentine is great! He was a wrench at both Ride West and Cascade BMW before opening up a shop in his house.

    Go to the IBMWR.org site, select the "online dealers" page and hit the link at the top that is for independant mechanics and look under WA.

    Hey noobie - Don't you think it would even a little helpful to mention what part of the world you live in when asking for mechanic recommendations? Let me guess, public school graduate?

    Are you looking for a non-dealer mechanic? Hollywood Honda/BMW is right there.
