Motorcycle Detailing in northern burbs?

Hey guys - been a while.

I just replaced a fairing on my Sprint ST and discovered the bike is pretty damn nasty dirty (I ride my bikes, I don't wash them, only bath they get is riding in the rain and a wipe down).

Can anyone recommend a place that details bikes? The Sprint could use a deep cleaning, that I just don't have the time or patience to do myself, at least if I can pay someone to do it without costing an arm and a leg...

Thanks

-Dan

Hi Dan

it's not the fall that kills you, it's that sudden stop

Hey, I did replace one of the fairings on my own. Will likely do the left this weekend.

And I do change the oil myself. And I clean and oil the chains every 300-400 miles.

And I usually wipe them down after riding in the rain.

Id just rather pay someone to really clean all the cracks and crevices. Not just wash and wipe it down. The Tuono isn't that dirty yet.

And hi Ed.

Thanks! I take pride in my work and I don't finish the detail until the car is the best I can possibly make it.

I would, but it seems like not many people are actually serious. I've had about 25 people PM me here asking all sorts of questions and then when I tell them the price they stop responding. I do it for literally half of what anyone else charges, do a better job and use quality, professional products. I guess people expect me to spend 8-15 hours on their car for free.

I can't see how someone would complain about the price. Ur price is better than anyones and the product is perfect!
