Well I had seen some recommendations on the UKGSER forum about Adventure Bike Warehouse,Unit 5, Agecroft Enterprise Park, Shearer Way, Swinton, Manchester, M27 8WA.
Well with the phone call made, service was booked, post code in the sat nav it was off.
Arriving at 10am, when they open was really good as I missed most of the rush hour traffic in and around Manchester, and what made things better was being greeted with a cup of tea and some toasted tea cakes. I had to relaxed outside the unit on the patio set, whilst I waited for Jono, my mechanic for the day. I say day.........
What I liked about it was I could see my motorcycle being worked on and was able to chat with Jono about what he was doing.
I learnt a lot about the way it should be done and towards the end of the day saw how the computer system checked the BMW.
I say at the end of the day.......Don't expect the job to be rushed as whilst you wait, you have drink numerous mugs of tea and be supplied with a light snack for lunch.....All part of the service.
So what did I get for my service:
Well I took my own engine oil, I am supported by Fuchs and took some Silkolene Pro 4 10W - 40.
All filters replaced
Brake fluid replaced
Brakes serviced and set of rear pads replaced
Fitted with Iridium spark plugs
Also a job for next time, slight play in the rear wheel bearing.
After test ride I was ready to leave for home.
Arrived at 10am and left at 5pm after and informative and relaxing day.
As soon as I rode off I noticed a difference in the BMW - It was a lot smoother, more responsive and I was using a lower gear as it appeared to have more torque.
Would I recommend Adventure Bike Warehouse to anyone wanting an excellent service, to an excellent standard at a non BMW Dealership price - YES.
A big thank you to Jono for the excellent job and Adrian for all the tea and food
