Hi Paul
Got bike yesterday evening and just ridden to Tewksbury for weekend and have to say what a great bike. Exactly as described and the whole purchasing experience with you has been one of the best yet.
Having worked in the trade for more years than I care to remember I can honestly say that your company is one of the best.
Thanks again Paul, I will be recommending you to all
Kind regards

Martyn from Llandovery
Very straight forward and easy to deal with, honest, accurate and comprehensive description of the machine which is very important when buying online. I would recommend to friends and will revisit when I am next in the market to replace my bike!

Mark from Taunton, Somerset.
Hi Paul
I would like to thank you, it was a pleasure to deal with you and your colleague yesterday,the bike was over and above what I expected.
The ride back was so much fun I'm still smiling now, I will recommend you and your shop to all my friends when they are looking to change their bikes.

Kind Regards


Mike from Barry, Wales.
Afternoon Paul,

Happy Weds.

Yep, as per last email SOS delivered the bike on time and after a further confirmation call from them this morning. Well done.

Weather is brief sunshine followed by HEAVY showers (typical April weather here on the west coast of Scotland) today. Needless to say finally manged to seize a gap in the rain and head out for my 1st wee ride after some 8 years out of the saddle.

I had to sell my last bike as a result of the recession but delighted to now be back on a bike. Whilst the Honda doesn’t have the raw grunt of my last Ducati Multistrada 1000DS, it is perfect for my planned use of mainly commuting to the day job up/down the Ayrshire coast.

The bike is just as good as you had filmed. All as described. All the MOT and service doc history is good to have too. I noted the last MOT comments viz. tyres so glad we swapped these out for new ones.

Thank you for the matching tank protector which I know you didn't charge me for.

So far so relived after much anxiety after losing my cherry with a first remote motorcycle purchase.

Many thanks again for your persistence and assistance in this purchase. You are obviously very particular as to what s/hand stock you sell on so keep to this mantra as it obviously pays dividends in the end.

So all looks great and hopefully will get a drier day or two over the Easter period to take her a bit further afield in advance of my planned commutes to Ayr and back next week.

As requested please find attached scanned signed copy of your 3 month warranty form.

Feel free to use any of the above comments as another very positive feedback listing to your many others.

Many thanks again and be sure that I will revert back when the time comes for something a little bit 'bigger'.

Steve fell in love with our Panigale very shortly after we had advertised it and on impulse decided he had to have it!
He literally had to have it ASAP, so we prepped the bike, arranged the documents and he was on our doorstep a day later!
Awesome photo Steve!

"Just wanted to thank you and the team for the efforts on sorting the 899 out. Love it! Such a great bike. Keep taking pics lol"

Ducati Panigale 899
Excellent service, Paul & Guy were genuinely up front with all information and answered every question I posed straight & honestly. This was the first time I had bought a bike without seeing it so was slightly apprehensive about what would be delivered would be as described. If anything they understated how good this bike was, it was immaculate in every aspect, thanks gents would have no hesitation in dealing with you again, but intend to enjoy this one first for a few years yet.

Tony from West Sussex
Guy & Paul,

Just wanted to thank you for supplying me with such a great machine, and for the friendly and efficient manner in which you did so. As a cautious and fussy buyer, I had assumed I would need to set aside a day to drive to Bournemouth and back in order to check out the bike in person, so I was delighted we could do it all over the phone with delivery to my door. I was expecting a mint condition bike based upon your description and that is exactly what I have received. Gone are the days when I shall be driving all over the country; a visit to your website and a telephone conversation are so much more straightforward and hassle free. Many thanks

I had been looking for a KTM 990 adventure for some time but the right one never seemed to appear within reasonable distance of my home. Eventually I spotted one that ticked all the boxes which was great. The concern was it was in Bournemouth. Around a six hour drive from me and I didn’t even bother looking at train times!! I called Motorbiking and spoke to Paul. I had quite a few questions about the bike which he answered as if it was his own machine. I was still very nervous about handing over what to me is a fairly large sum of money for something I had only seen in pictures. I asked Paul to make a short video of the bike to get a bit more detail and to hear her running. Paul gladly obliged and sent me the video. I knew it was the right bike but was still nervous. I agreed to buy it and it was duly delivered. Taxed and insured straightaway and out for a quick ride and my doubts were blown away by what a great bike I have bought. All I can say is Paul and the team must take great care in selecting bikes to sell as my KTM is fantastic. Anyone else in my position finding the right bike so far away need not fear if it done through Motorbiking. Many thanks to Paul and the team. I am sure I have many happy miles ahead of me. Cheers Jeff

All in all boys, over the moon with the 'Busa, and just great to deal with people who offer a professional customer service with good communication throughout. When dealing with people at a distance, this is of paramount importance.

As you both know, I'm in a similar business, and when you are doing it right, its good to have people tell you so.

You are 430 miles away, but like most of your existing customers, I will have no hesitation in recommending to my friends up here in sunny Scotland.

All the best for 2017.

Ian (Scottish Borders)
Hi Guy,

Another brilliant bike from Guy at Motorbiking. The only place I will ever buy a used bike from without seeing it in the flesh. Great service, delivered exactly as agreed, proper price and what is effectively a brand new bike which I am thrilled with.

Hi Paul and the team,

Just want to say a massive thank you to Paul for helping me get on my beautiful dream bike. You made everything easy, trouble-free and straight forward. As a customer all you can ask is another human on the other side to work with you with as much patience, to achieve the goal of getting a normal customer like myself who hasn't a huge amount of money and is making himself skint every month because of his passion, on a bike which is a dream to ride and look at. Your work ethic and calming influence is a credit to the company you work for.

Again thanks for such a smooth transaction and I look forward to dealing with yourselves in the future.

Many many thanks,


p.s please look after my R6 hahahaha

Leon from Falkirk
Ducati 899 PANIGALE
Hi Guy and Paul,

I just wanted to say a big thank you to you both for such a easy and pleasurable transaction to swap over to my BMW R1200GS TE.
I have been looking for quite a few months for a GS but none had all the bells and whistles or the quality of the one you had.
Now I have my bike, it is so much better than I expected and rides like a dream.
I am looking forward to many “touring” trips ahead and if down your way again I will call in for a brew.

I wish you both all the best

Gary from Rochdale
Beautiful, immaculate bike. Brilliant price. Friendly, straight-forward, timely deal. What more could you ask for?

I’m absolutely delighted with my purchase and have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending these guys.

Many thanks

John from Exeter, Devon.
To Guy/Paul

After couple minor issues with my fantastic KTM 990 SM the staff at Motorbiking have been nothing but BRILLIANT as regards to sorting the issue. Their service and attitude towards myself as a customer is outstanding nothing is a problem. Their friendly and professional can do approach to everything is a credit too them all !!!



Laurence from Chichester
I must admit the thought of spending thousands on a bike i hadnt seen was a bit daunting.
Thankfully your description was spot on and the bike looks great. It has been a pain free transaction and all that is required now is some decent weather.
Thanks again

Hi Guy, Paul,
I pleased to say that my Tiger, delivered last week, is very bit as good as I hoped. I would go as far as to say that I was pleasantly surprised to find it in a better condition than the online pics belayed. Although I, like others, was a bit sceptical about ordering a bike online. The assurances that came from speaking to yourselves, both extremely upfront knowledgeable and honest gents, along with the many testimonials gave me the confidence to complete the sale. I was not disappointed. The Tiger was in immaculate condition and although 4 years old I would not have been able to tell the difference between it and a new one from the showroom other than the plate. Although the weather has been poor I have managed one trip out and again awesome, rides like new, and I have tried the new model.

It was a pleasure to deal with you both and would unquestionably recommend you to friends and colleagues alike looking for a new ride. You will be my first port of call when/if I decide to change again in the future

In all, if Carlsberg sold motorbikes, they would be called Motorbiking Bournemouth.

Many thanks

Saw the orange 2007 KLE Versys on eBay, photos looked good, but don't they always? Had to see it in person as the condition looked good, plus only 2 previous owners. Found the shop easily, plenty of parking. Entering the shop was a surprise, bikes filled the whole floor space, all immaculately presented, most looked like new. One chap seated behind the counter (Greg) greeted me, smiling, when I announced I had come to see the Versys, which was within easy reach for a check round. It was, indeed, as it had been described. Here I have an admission to make. The whole package was fairly priced considering the low mileage, 2 previous careful owners, and fitted extras that I actually didn't try and get it any cheaper. I wanted something different, something that sounded like a motorbike, beefy looking, unusual, unique, one might say, (others may add ugly here!) and I was advised by Paul that it was the cheapest bike in the showroom at that time. For once in my life I didn't need to argue or plea bargain a reduction because it had been presented so well. I should have been annoyed with myself, I always tell others never to pay the windscreen price, but even though it rained on the way back home, I was happy just to have a motorbike again! The bike came with a fresh mot and full service, and I would be happy to recommend Motorbiking to anyone. Incidentally, the sea is not far away, about 10 mins max, so it makes for a good day out, even if you don't immediately find what you want! Cheers lads

Kawasaki KLE650 VERSYS
Hi Paul,just wanted to say A big thank you for:

A) giving me first refusal.
B) you both waiting for me.
C) securing the V & H pipes.(can't wait to hear the rumble)

My family think she looks mint.
Just booked her in for the two outstanding recalls that were in the folder.
Clutch and rear bag checks.I had these done on my last bike its no drama.

Now about to tax the Beast!

Peter from Nottingham
Hi Guy
I would like to thank you for today.
The rear tyre of course has transformed the feel of the bike with that
squared off tyre gone.
Mainly, can I thank you for the extra work that you did which you have done purely as good and honest dealer.
Tim tinkered with the carb and the bike runs as sweet as it could and I am
happier still that I had the good sense to come to you for another quality

Hi Paul,

Hope you are well?

I picked up your voicemails regarding the spare key for my bike and just wanted to say thanks once again for your excellent service and after sales support. I will email a copy of my logbook to you tomorrow morning. By the way I am really pleased with the BMW R850R and thoroughly enjoying the different riding style.

Thanks again and best regards,

Jim from Bournemouth
Hi Paul,

All the best

Awesome bike, clearly as stated. Great customer service. Travel up from Plymouth with a mate I thought just to buy a bike. Not so given Motorbiking location it's a fantastic ride out lunch on the sea front at Bournemouth home on a new bike great. Would definitely do business again.
Thanks gents.

Hi Paul/Guy Thanks for your help and just to let you know that I had a trouble free and pleasant ride home. I am really pleased with the bike and I will recommend you to others. The whole business experience was pleasurable, the bike was as described and all the staff very friendly. The coffee was gratefully received especially after a long journey down from Derby. Many thanks again, kind regards.

Kim & Sandra Brasssington from Derby.
Hi Guy

Apologies for this very late email, I've been away on business and not had time to take a proper look at the bike nor ride it.

Well... today I spent some time admiring my new purchase and even managed a 50 mile ride out.

The bikes everything I expected and more! even the colour ;-)

Just wanted to say a big thank you for making it an effortless sale and for delivering her all the way up here.

When it come to changing her for the next one I'll certainly be keeping you in mind.

Many thanks
