    Graham's Motorcycles - Independent BMW Workshop

    Hi Guys,

    As some of you know I work at an independent BMW Motorcycle specialist based in Bradford West Yorkshire.

    We are a family run business established in 1989 by my father Graham. Before opening Graham's Motorcycles he worked at Alan Jefferies for 10 years.

    I'd like to think we offer the same high quality of workmanship that you would expect from a dealership but for a much more reasonable price; we don't have the overheads of a massive showroom.

    We have a fully equipped workshop with hydraulic bike lifts, state of the art diagnostic testing equipment and far too many hand tools to count! (as you would expect after some 37 years of collecting tools from the snap-on man!)

    We have a complete diagnostic system compatible with all makes and models of motorcycle - the only thing we aren't able to do is software updates as that requires a connection to the BMW mothership.


    We also stock around 20 used motorcycles in our (rather small) showroom. We don't have the room to stock clothing, parts and accessories but we are able to supply to order parts from several manufacturers including Cardo Intercoms, Datatool Alarm systems, TRW & EBC, Oxford products, YSS suspension, Arrow Exhausts and just this week I opened an account with R&G (Not just to buy accessories for my S.. But for other important reasons..)

    If you would like any more info on our company and our history please visit www.grahamsmotorcycles.co.uk. We are also on Facebook and We have a 5 star rating at TheGoodDealerScheme.


    Im currently in the process of working out some form of discount to offer forum members but I cannot discuss it until I know exactly what I will be able to offer.. Watch this space!


    Thanks for taking the time to read this, if you have any questions feel free to ask!

    Fancy moving up our way Stephen, the dealers up here have "carte blanche"... we could be doing with some good independant competition.

    Stephen

    I think I PM'd you, but no idea if you got it, doesn't show in my Outbox. I need to replace the OEM front brakes on my 2012 Gen 2 bike, was thinking Brembo SCs based on other threads, as they seem to be good for a mix of road and track.

    Qs:
    What differences would I feel vs OEM
    How much for a set, delivered to Surrey?

    Cheers

    Rick
