Ron and his family of BMW gurus made the purchase, after-sales service and our BMW learning curve much easier and more fun.
Kudos to Barry the uber-Mechanic and all the folks in the Spares department who have shipped parts to us in India.

The friendly crew at Touratech made our trip so much more enjoyable, ‘cos we had the right kit!

Langley 24 Hour Mechanic/Bike Guru.
Langley was our personal Mr Fixit. Nothing seemed too much for him to do.
He brought his mobile workshop to us and helped us with everything from teaching us to change tyres to helping us fit our two way radios to the bike.

- Sonic Communications
Sonic is the closest one can get to Q’s workshop (of James Bond fame). They make all kinds of communication systems for motorcycles,
plus they kit out all the bikes for the UK police force and various other government agency vehicles (on a strictly need to know basis!).
Liam and Darren are very helpful and gave us a system perfectly suited to our needs.
