I've read good stuff about Bill's Motorcycles Plus. But haven't dealt with them personally.

I highly recommend Bill's! That guy is super nice and helpful. He mostly carries Husqvarna and Gasgas, but does service all brands and has a nice little collection of vintage bikes in the shop. He sells used bikes as well, from trade-ins. I buy any Husqvarna part that I need there even though I have closer local resources.

Bill is a great guy. I always thought of BMP as more towards the ADV and dirt guys. Several good shops around though.

Cycle Country in Salem out on Portland road isn't bad. I bought my 2014 CRF250L there and had the 600 mile service performed by them. Rather than rape me for a valve clearance inspection that was no longer required they informed me that Honda had made a change to the service interval for valve clearance inspection. (Long story short) The 2013 Honda CRF250L was the first year it was out, Honda required a valve inspection at 600 miles break-in service that year, but after that first year they moved the interval out to every 8k miles.
Other than that I do my own servicing to include valves. My dual sport tires I change myself. Tires on my ST1300 I buy the tires online, remove the wheels and take them to Bill's on 12th St in Salem for a $30 per wheel mount and balance.

I was at Bill's a lot when I lived there. One of my friends was in sales at Cycle Country; they were good people there too. Power Yamaha in Sublimity is pretty cool too. We've gotten some decent gear there before. I also only rode dirt in those days...
