Baltimore, MD shop recommendations?

Hey guys,

What shops are you guys using in and around Baltimore? I actually live in Baltimore County but only 15 minutes away from Bmore. Let me know. I just got my R6S on the road last week and need a shop to inspect it.

Petes cycle is okay. Never had service with them though, only parts. The good people on this forum help me with that. You could also try ellicott city motorsports

Just pick the one that isn't underwater.

Re: Baltimore, MD shop recommendations?

I've read mixed results about Pete's Cycle. At this point, I just need to pass inspection. I have already performed maintence on the bike & orderedparts via this site.

Thanks for the quick response!

I use Ellicott City Motorsports and like them quite a bit and I've heard that Pete's cycle has awful customer service. I'm not sure about their bike service thouhg.

Yeah, I hear the same. It's always hard to find a shop you can trust!

Re: Baltimore, MD shop recommendations?

any of the shops should be able to inspect it. from there if the bike needs work to pass inspection let us know. im in baltimore now (canton) so i could always help install some basic stuff if needed. feel free to pm me if you ever need anything, if i cant directly help ill try my best to point you in the proper direction.

Eric

Re: Baltimore, MD shop recommendations?

Thanks guys. Well my inspection failed because I have flush mount front turn signals and a motodynamic integrated tail light. If anyone has those stock parts laying around, let me know!
