    Have been there for two consecutive maintenance checks for a scooter. I didn't have any problems with it, but I prefer a peace of mind so I have it serviced and inspected regularly. I can't tell much on the price side, at that time I didn't mind - not cheap, but at least they display it on the web site and the list of checks they do* (see below) looks good. Staff was always friendly - no complaints on that either.
    The thing is, right after the second service (in about a day) a fuel line cracked next to the carb intake and started spilling fuel on the engine. It took me a few days (I thought I had nothing to worry about) to realise something was wrong (it's actually funny if you think about it - I though it was the smell of construction paint, until it started stinking like hell and I started feeling it even when riding), and when I looked inside - F#ME! - I would have bricked my pants if I new I was riding an unlit torch all that time! Had to replace that line sodding myself after all.
    Interestingly, at least the last service I had, amongst other things included "fuel lines and tank inspection", non of which I guess never had a look at, as the line I replaced looked quite bad on the faulty end. That makes me question how much of the stuff from the list (that I paid for) has actually been done, and what would it have been like if I had a problematic bike.
    Anyway, that's exactly what I'm trying to avoid, so next time I'll pick another place for service.

    As awful as it can get. Just had the worst shopping experience I've had in years.
    The stock availability online is an absolute delusion, and people in the store have no idea what phone is for.
    Spent about 40 minutes in total (that is, after 4 days of waiting of any progress on my order online, naturally, with no luck) confirming what they really had in stock. After 2 broken promises of "we'll give you a call back in an hour" and me persisting (even though should had known by then) the items list have decreased by half, and I went to the store to pick them up. And of course, in the store it turned out they only had one single item available.
