    Hey Mani,

    I see the list of BMW mechanics you posted up, and i just wanted to provide a little story about my local mechanic. It may or may not interest.

    I live in Australia, in a town called Wangaratta in the state of Victoria. It's a small country place about 3 hours from Melbourne. Near me in an even smaller place called Whorouly is a workshop called Alpine Performance Centre.

    The proprietor, Shane Kinderis, is a world renowned BMW motorcycle mechanic. His shop also does other bikes, cars, tractors, whatever.

    Shane Kinderis is the chief mechanic for the BMW racing team in Australian Superbikes, and he's also the engine builder for Hunter Sills Racing who hold a world land speed record in the 1000cc naturally aspirated class on a BMW S1000R set in Bolivia -

    So out here in what many in Australia might consider to "be near bumfuck" (it's actually near some of the best motorcycle roads in Australia) is this great, world known expert BMW mechanic where i get my K1300R serviced. How good is that?

    Here's a bit of an article featuring Shane Kinderis


      That's pretty cool JB.


        Local guy and fellow club member Bud Provin. You better have a spare bike
        because it could be two years before he gets to it.


 Local here in Ohio. Read the about on his site, guy is the shit.

 Local Ural dealer good at most things motorcycle. Works on BMWs. Fair, honest and capable.


            the guy in Quebec did some work on my R90 and R80, knows those old bikes no idea if he works on the newer bikes.

              If you're talking about Montécristo , I don't think he works on newer bikes . He's got enough work with the vintage , doesn't take new customers , and he's gonna retire in the not too distant future (so he told me last year) .
