To my frustration I have neither the time (the usual reasons) nor the place (no electricity or space in my landlord’s garage) to do a full annual service on my motorcycle myself this year so I took the advice of a couple of folks I know only through email lists and had my R100GSPD serviced at [AMOL Motorcycles](http://www.amolmotorcycles.com/) in Dumont, New Jersey.
Great service, they did a top notch job. They even did little things not on the list like tighten the loose nut holding the right-hand mirror stem. It annoys the hell out of me when I can’t get that to stay and I left it just to see if they would do it but they took care of that detail too. Nice.
While I was at their shop, I ran into a fellow (Hi Johnny!) I met through [SBONYC](http://www.sbonyc.org). He confirmed their reputation and said he has his work done there.
Since I had the bike and it was a perfect day and I needed to scrub in the new rear tire, I went for a short ride- a bit over a hundred miles- through Northern Jersey and Southern New York before coming home. Need to be a little cautious for the next hundred or two miles just in case the mould release compound is still slick. With a bit of luck, I’ll get out again this afternoon.
