    Default Any good Honda mechanics in Massachusetts?

    I recently had a bad experience with the local Honda dealer. Completely mis-diagnosed my bike apparently because they didn't want to take the time to work on a 22 year old Goldwing. I ended up ordering a new trike to be built thinking mine needed thousands of dollars of work and Honda doesn't make parts for the GL1500 anymore. That's actually true for a lot of parts but I found they're all available through Amazon or Ebay. I ended up fixing the bike myself after doing some research and talking to a couple of people for advice. Cost me $50 and took a half an hour. I'm wondering if anyone can recommend a good mechanic within driving distance of Massachusetts. Any suggestions would be welcome.

    Thanks

    I know exactly who you're talking about. He's not the one I'm talking about in my most recent experience but is one of the reasons I'm looking for a new mechanic.

    I just found a guy in Williamsburg Ma. He works out of his home garage, and so far I love his work...

    look up Berkshire Cycles (google) in Williamburg MA..

    I'm picking up my bike just this morning,

    He's replacing air filter, clutch fluid, and a bad sensor for me...Price was very fair.....
