What shop do you guys prefer in the Gig Harbor/Port Orchard/Bremerton area?

It's a BMW R1200GS Adventure and I'd like to have a shop give it a look-over and tune-up.

None. I don't go to shops except for warranty or recall work due to my hand being forced. Otherwise, I do it myself.

P.S. I have been know to provide certain services to local riders who may not have wanted to pay dealership prices. My PM box is always open.

We are blessed with great people like Pavement Tested and other riders who offer limited services for fellow riders at seriously reasonable prices. I've met a BMW guy up north who I would have no problem riding/trailering up to meet. He recently did my tyres for me.

That being said, just in case you have problems when you are across the water, Vallantine Motor Works in Seattle is a great shop for your Bimmer. Mark and Dana are great guys who would know your GS inside and out.
Also, don't forget to keep Lowside towing's number in your wallet. (206-696-1849)

Did you get any records with the bike? If not I'd take it to a BMW shop or someplace that knows BMWs inside snd out. Ask lots of questions. Join a BMW forum. There isn't anyone in the area until the Tacoma BMW shop. Forget brothers and Cliff's.

I did get some, but there is a notable gap in the last few years.

I have a 2005 K1200S and will be doing most of my own work. Pavement Tested did my tires for me and did a great job. I would trust him for anything he says he can do. I don’t get anything from Brothers or Cliff’s.

There is a guy up north that has a lot of experience with Bimmers. I just joined WSBMWR and a lot of these guys are very helpful and knowledgeable. Athey also have a lot of tech sections on the forums. You can also join BMWMOA. They’re another good resource. I can PM you the specific links if you like.
