In beautiful Victoria BC, I would go to Victoria Motorcycle and see the mechanic there. He's worked on my 1100 and I have no complaints and the shop is very customer friendly. Note I said the shop as the mechanic is a bit of a social handgrenade and I think he prefers the company of the motorbikes to his fellow men sometimes and maybe thats what you want :?.

I concur in Des Moines, the Cycle Clinic. Only ones I will let touch my bike.  Small enough shop with excellent mechanics.  Never been disappointed.
I used them years ago but was surprised to see garvis Honda beat their prices for services like timing belts and fork seals. I didn't end up using garvis though so can't speak to how their service actually is.

Sometimes you just want a job done by a pro, don't have time to tackle a project, or don't want to invest in tools you know you'll need.

It may be a good dealership, or individuals working out of their garage...don't matter as long as the skill is there.

For me, I need someone I can 'go to' in Dallas, Texas when I don't feel up to the task.

Any help?
Seems everybody is suggesting mechanics in every place EXCEPT Dallas.

Fred Harmon of Greenville, Tx. is the go to mechanic in DFW area. I think he takes work by appointment only. Couldn't find his contact info, but white pages may turn him up. He has much stuff out on net about wings.

Some of his stuff below, maybe some contact info there somewhere.

I work on my own and will not take mine to a dealer.

For the right price I'd do it for others.

Advice is free.

Contact me and come by.

I will be honest with you.

My charge is 2x parts + 10 per hour. And I'm a bit slower than the stealler but I'm fair.

I love working on old bikes.

But my time is limited.

My local Honda MC shop won't even display a Goldwing in their store, its not a small place and just because its Alaska does not mean its a barren wasteland full of low riding polar bear car gangs, no they just do not have a large enough buyers base for Wings in Alaska, I saw a Rune there once, a VTX1800 and a couple of smaller Honda streetbikes but in all of the 21 years here I have never, ever seen a NEW Goldwing.
Now I "think" The Motorcycle Center in Anchorage might be selling some, never been there, in Alaska there is far more Harley shops, private Harley shops and used Harleys for sale. You would think there is a few Wings in Alaska, there sure is I have 4 of them, I think most are special ordered, and finding a mechanic in Alaska is something else for a Goldwing. I may have earned the undue reputation as being the local expert on Wings. Thats for the Wasilla area, possibly I may get out of my house and get a real shop in 2014, and then I would offer my services.
Right now I have to store my bikes in four different locations, two inside my house, two in a bike shed, three at my girlfriends house and the rest at my seasonal job at a concrete batch plant.

You're talking about Hartley there, I would never take anything of mine there. I used to order stuff from them if I did not feel like running all the way into Anchorage for it. You're right about the buyer base in AK, My buddy up in Talkeetna has a 1200 and I know some fellow Wing riders up in Fairbanks as well. I was actually surprised the other year when I went to the blessing of the bikes in Anc at the # of Goldwings. The Motorcycle Center in Anchorage do have some Goldwings, I was in there the other month just wasting some time and saw two plus a new F6B.


Back on topic though, Accessory Pit in Albuquerque NM is the place to go to get the wing worked on, they specialize in wings and trikes. Rick is a good to go guy as well. 505-292-2700 is their #

I have people bringing me their GWings from Nebraska, Missouri, and Oklahoma. Also had one of my mid-western Kansas clients send me some bikers that had been touring out of Florida after hours on a weekend....I'm not a 'professional,' but many of my regulars come to me before going to any of the bona fide motorcycle shops, even the dealerships, 'cuz I do much better work here in my garage, and far cheaper to. And, as it turns out...lol...my garage is better equipped than many of the local motorcycle shops. I do it more as a hobby than a job, so I actually enjoy doing it, thus, better work is done here than in the motorcycle shops and dealerships.
I'm in Wichita, Kansas. PM me if I can be of service, never hurts to ask.

This is great information but where does one take a bike in the Pasadena area of Southern California? Quite a few dealers but none seem to hip on the Goldwings.
