I've read through a number of related threads on this site regarding BMW Motorcycle service. At this date most of the posts that I have read are older describing a poor first hand experience or hearsay of a poor experience. Maybe that is still the situation here in Thailand. I have a 2008 BMW R1200GS Adventure and am considering having it serviced by a BMW Motorrad dealer or maybe an independent shop such as Motorrad Cave - TART Motorrad Lampang (Motorrad Cave - TART Motorrad Lampang). Here are some questions: Does anyone have a positive experience to tell? Has anyone found a competent shop that can work on BMW motorcycles? Has anyone found a truly competent, trained, and experienced BMW motorcycle Mechanic? Has anyone found a shop that actually stocks a service kit or parts in general? Just looking for some competency. Anywhere. On anything. Just a little.
