“Taking my bike to Lloyd for the first (of many to come) time has been the best ride-related decision I have ever made. He did a spectacular job, and dealt with every nook and cranny as if he were one of the people who engineered the bike. The valve adjustment required much dexterity and the ability to do some of it by feel rather than by sight. Belt chirping that had been with me since the first rear tire change was finally eradicated. Even Yamaha’s practical joke – the radiator hose seal – proved no match for Lloyd, who, with remarkable poise and determination, kept at that thing until it gave up and did what it is supposed to do. The end result is a Star 1300 that rides so much more smoothly and powerfully than it did – even when new. What a treat! Lloyd is a personable, talented, skilled, and ethical man who has earned my gratitude and trust. He earns every penny of his exceedingly fair rate. Recommend without reservation.”

“I switched to Lloyd based on referrals and because I was frustrated by other mechanics service. Since my first appointment, I have been satisfied with the service Lloyd provides. His technical knowledge is based on a foundation of riding, racing and repairing motorcycles over the last 40 years. Lloyd balances price, safety and performance with any type of service with intent on giving the best product to his customer. He gives recommendations based on extensive street and track experience and takes time to break down the list of charges and services. I am impressed by the organization and cleanliness of the shop, even though there may be multiple bikes torn down at any given time. His attention to detail borders on obsessive, which comforts me knowing that my machine will leave the shop running smoothly. My continued patronage is not only from his competitive prices for parts and labor, or for his technical competence, but for the good feeling I have when I leave.”

“I had Lloyd break in my new bike per his way. I pick the bike up from the bike dealer and brought it straight to him. He took care of it from there and did an oil change. My old CBR is an 08 and my new one is an 08 also. the old bike used about 2 oz of oil per 1000 miles which is pretty good but not like my Goldwing. My new bike has not used a drop of oil in 2500 miles so far. Also the oil is very clear. The bike is running great and is now averaging about 39 to 42 mpg. The old bike never saw 40 mpg and would get about 32 to 34 on average. Even on the track the other day I got 37 mpg for 66 miles of 2nd and 3rd gear riding at full throttle. Thanks Lloyd. You are all knowing and wise. Vince”

“Always been happy with the service and turnaround time. I ride many miles each year both in MN and off far away on trips, I could not do that without the bike being well maintained as it is by Lloyd. His prices are good too”

“Lloyd was very reasonable in his charges when I left my bike there do to unintended circumstances. But I know it wasn’t conveinent for him and he needs every square foot of space. bikes need to picked up immediately when done. The work he performed was top notch and I do look forward to ridng it this season.”

“I purchased a Yamaha Venture with 22,000. It was due for a lot of maintenance according to the manual and a friend referred me to Lloyd. I was extremely impressed with Lloyds careful and meticulous work. He took the time to chat, answer questions, explain the process, and then followed up with email explanations/pictures as the work was being completed. I had asked for the major tune up and the bike sure got that and then some extra attention and care. Lloyd had the bike longer than I would have liked but that wasn’t his fault as he was waiting on parts. After talking with Lloyd it was obvious that he has a passion and cares deeply both about the quality of his work as well as making sure the cost is fair and reasonable. I would highly recommend Lloyd to any new customer who wants to be treated fairly when getting motorcyle work done. I hope and intend to have mine back as often as needed.”

“I brought my bike in for new spark plugs installation and an oil change. Lloyd installed those and also made several other adjustments and a list of problems that would soon need to be addressed. I guess brake pads, a battery and a fork seals are all needed. He still charged the same as a regular oil change and refused to take any extra money for his extra hour of work adjusting my carburetor and cables, the air pressure in the tires and the drive chain. Now to come up with some money to get the rest of the work done. I am very happy and suprised at the quality of service.”

“About ten days before my motorcycle trip to Colorado I put my bike down in a parking lot. The clutch cover smashed in and pretty much destroyed the whole clutch; I figured my trip was canceled. I talked to Lloyd and he agreed to take a look. Lloyd replaced the clutch, fixed the brake lever, fixed both broken mirrors, replaced both tires, changed the oil and replaced the leaking fork seals. He had my bike back on the road and with time to spare before my trip. I can?t tell you how much I appreciated Lloyd?s great work and the fact he made it a priority to get my bike ready before my trip. He worked with my insurance company and took care of every detail and kept me updated throughout the whole process. I have no doubts that no other shop would have gone to the lengths Lloyd did to help me out with my dilemma. Thanks Lloyd”

“I have used Lloyd’s services for the better part of 5 years now after hearing some good things from other riders. He rebuilt my R6 engine last winter for a song. It has been very strong and reliable since, having been run nearly 3000 hard track miles this season. I just got it back after having the valves adjusted and a good look over and adjustments made. I am confident it is all set for all of next season too. Plus he has always been able to get me in with little to no notice for the tires needs which I tend to think about at the track and no other time, those 20 minute turn around times for a tire keep me from even losing a session often.”

“My ’04 GSX-R750 needed a major tune up which included a laundry list of many things that I would not have been able to do myself. Pics of the entire process were sent to me along with descriptions of what was being done was a plus! Quick turn around time and fair prices will keep me coming back time and again. Thanks Lloyd!” ~Denyse Brooks a/k/a Rckt Grl”

“My Concours 14 was due for service including a valve adjustment and new tires. I chose Lloyd to do the work based on several recommendations and on the value of knowing the job was to be done right. The C14 came back to me like a different machine. Engine runs smoother and feels like it has more power. I went with Lloyd’s suggestion of Bridgestone T30GT tires over the Michelin PR4GT that I had previously So far I like the T30s better, and they cost less. Joe ’12 Concours 14 I’ll be happy to bring my bike back to Lloyd.”
