Talking Heads Up

Mick Owen / East Coast Bm's is closing in late March.

Mick is currently finalising the fitting out of a pantech as a fully-equiped travelling workshop, offering mobile servicing (including a tyre machine) and bike pick-up. He will retain his previous premises, co-located with Redback (near Joe's), as a warehouse/drop-off/workshop.

So, all you BMW owners take note. And anyone else who wants a trustworthy workshop in the ACT region (I don't know of another one, put it that way....).

you sure about the premises being the same... I thought they were changing as well.

Here's an extract from his letter:

"This means that from 27 March 2013, I will cease to operate from 3/74 Townsville Street Fyshwick.

For customers who still wish to drop off and pickup their motorcycle at Fyshwick this can be done at my new depot at unit 1/9 Collier St Fyshwick ACT."

The original business was at Collier St, the current one is at Townsville St, and "He will retain his previous premises, co-located with Redback (near Joe's), as a warehouse/drop-off/workshop." refers to Collier St (basically next door to Joe's).

Sorry if my wording caused any confusion.

Davo, I'll still be ordering tyres via Mick, as he will deal directly with the importer to circumvent the shortcomings of local distributors (WGE take note, you useless bastards).

I have been using Corey at Joe's for most of my tyres, usally a good deal/range/options and fitted while you wait.

Also hes good for a little advice on old school sizes (R80GS) and new replacment sizes.

Soooo he'll still be working on bikes? Just not from a set location, is that right? And here I was going to book the lil Beema in in March.

Fozzy & myself are heading up early Friday, gunna show Fozzy some of the scenic backroads up to Oberon,
Then over Bells Line, ??? maybe Putty or Wisemans Ferry to Singleton, hope to make campsite depending on time, or will camp somewhere on the way
Been getting my K460's & K70's from CMC, everything else from Joe's, some of that mob @ CMC are a bit dense, or am I too much of a 'bushy' for them? Salesman always tries to sell me a new bike, usually let him have a spiel about the latest & greatest, penny drops when I ask about a trade-in price for whichever XS I'm on
