Thumbs up Moto V

Just want to give a big 👍🏼 To Glen at Moto-V near Colchester. After all my issues earlier in the year (poor starting due to R/R issues) I had contacted him to have a look through the diagnostic on the bike. As it happens due to his work load it was a while before I could get it in. However I was really pleased with Glen’s helpful & welcoming manner and the work he did for me. I can now b e sure that from a mechanical point of view all is set up right.
I would have no hesitation recommending him to others who need their bikes fettled. When I went to pick up my bike there were 3 other Monsters waiting for attention, an early 900, a later injected 900 & a very clean red &white S2R 800, anyone on here?
Had to smile this morning when I was out walking, a gaggle of Harley’s went past, three ridden by guys with the new armoured tattoos on their arms & one with his radio blaring out ‘Every breath you take’, by the Police. Really on a Harley???

I know Glen of old, he was one of the mechanics at Parkinson's in Colchester. They went bust about 5 years ago.
He does know his ducatis, if I lived closer, would have no hesitation in using his service's.

That will protect their shoulder from being ground away to the consistency of a pile of mince quite nicely I'd imagine.

Seen quite a few of the flip-flop sports bike riders recently too.

Enjoy the R in the sunshine, still got a bit to come it seems and you might even have the time in hand to get out and use it

Good to hear Glen still going strong/providing good servicing on Ducatis. I got my S2R 1000 new from Parkinson's in 2006 and Glen serviced my bike for a few years and was the best thing about the dealership, always happy to talk me through the work done and do little extra bits here and there. I use Ducati proteam in Kent these days (found via recommendations here at UKMOC) who are excellent longstanding independent Ducati specialists, but base in my previous experiences I'd be happy to use Glen again if it wasn't for proteam. Anyway good to have good independent options for servicing our bikes...

Moto V

Just had my S2R serviced by Glenn at Moto V, a more helpful, meticulous, informative man would be hard to find. My expectations were exceeded, the collection and delivery service is also first class. I will not hesitate to use him again.
