    I'm on a long ride and will be riding down from Vancouver to San Diego early / mid September. I'll be due for my 10,000km service (and probably both tires) around that time, as well as needing to get some minor repair work done (mostly cosmetic). I've heard good things about Chilliwack, Optimum in Seattle, and Munroe in the bay area. Any thoughts on these or others?

    The guy out in the 'wack (Gord), used to be a legend around here for Guzzi stuff - I understand he retired a year or two ago and his son has taken over the business. I think they moved buildings too so check ahead.

    If the guy in Chilliwack doesn't pan out, you can always try International Motorsport in Vancouver and Langley (the latter is the bigger dealer). They are Guzzi dealers, mostly V7 stuff these days and of course Triumph but they should be able to sort you out. I bought my Audace from them as have a number of Vancouver folk here. Can't say for sure what their service is like as I do all my own, but I haven't seen/read anything bad and they should have the kit to deal with the basics - obviously call ahead of time

    I've had bikes in my shop from as far North as Seattle since Moto International closed. The dealer in Portland might be of help for basic service and related. Otherwise, hope to meet you for anything you may need, advanced booking required; https://gtmotocycles.com/pages/service

    That or GP Motorcycles in San Diego. Can't really recommend anything else in most of Nor, Central or SoCal.

    Thanks, Todd. I think I might need my basic 10k service (and a rear tire) before I hit your neck of the woods, but I'm thinking about some basic upgrades to the V7 (ie exhaust, fueling) while I'm in town there. I'll send a service request through the form once I have a better idea of when I'll arrive.
