Hi Guy and the team.
Just thought I'd send an email to say thanks for all your help, and thanks for the great service which made buying the bike a pleasure and not a chore. Perhaps some more dealers could adopt your approach and remove their heads from their own backsides. On a more serious note, I've spoken to the doctor and he says it could take some serious surgery to remove the stupid grin from my face, still it's a small price to pay. Thanks once again, and all the best for the future.

Hi Guy.
Just a quick message to thank you for a superb service from start to end of my buying a bike from you. You were both very helpful and eager to provide support and expertise in me choosing the right bike. It was a non pressure, friendly helpful experience that is getting harder to find these days.

I'm very pleased with my purchase and come the next time, I will have no hesitation in making you guys the top of my search list, great starting place. In the meantime, I will be recommending your services to any other friend or family that are looking for bikes.

Thanks and regards.

Hello Guy & Paul.

Its been nearly a week since I picked my up Z1000SX and its been awesome. And I would just like to say thank you for the help you gave me when my insurance company decided to give me some crap advice I think you went beyond what another dealer would do. I will certainly recommend you to anybody looking for a great bike and service.

Guy and Paul

A big thank you for the first class service received during the purchase of my Dorsoduro. It is a big worry purchasing a bike unseen especially when I live at the other end of the country but buying from you guys was a pleasure.

You were very helpful with pre purchase info and your description of bike was perfect and honest, the purchase process was smooth and you went out of your way to help me resolve the finance hiccup that was beyond your control. The chaps you use for delivery were first class and the bike was well prepped and serviced as agreed. I cannot fault any part of the experience and I would not hesitate to recommend Motorbiking Bournemouth.

I could not be happy with the bike, just need the weather to get out there and ride.


Gary from Halifax
Hi Paul,

I had a great ride home and the roads were all dry so that was a result. Just wanted to drop you a quick email to thank you for selling me a great bike its awesome and all as described in the ad. Its a bit of a worry buying a bike such a distance away from home but you described the bike perfect and it was a great pleasure to deal with such an honest and friendly dealership.

Thanks again,

Hi Guy and Paul

I feel I must write and express my delight and satisfaction with my recent purchase from ‘Motorbiking’.
I have always wanted to return to a big Kawasaki and you had the ideal bike with the best specification and price I could find. As you know once I had viewed and test ridden the machine my mind was made up, I was going to purchase it and ride it home (best way to get to know it, albeit 150 odd miles in early January with sub-zero wind chill and sometimes icy road conditions, oh and did I mention the salt, however the bike did not miss a beat, was very stable and gave loads of confidence, best thing.., well that was waking up the gentle people of Bath from their wintry slumber with the thumping bass beat that is the exhaust note from the ‘Beowulf’ cans, lovely.
I lam looking forward to enjoying many miles on this machine and can only say thanks for the great service to date and look forward to dropping in for ‘tea and biscuits’ during the coming biking months

From my first telephone conversation with Guy regarding my interest in the Ducati SF 09 plate,things were always up front and open about the condition and the situation regarding a few points that needed clarification.
What ever I requested regarding more photos and details about the service history of this bike they were more than willing to email all relevant information the same day.
Felt comfortable during every conversation we had discussing the bike.
Made the purchase without visiting the shop.
Bike was delivered as agreed, when I viewed the bike for the first time I was totally over the Moon. The pre-prep was first class and the bike was better than I could have expected.

How difficult these days is it to find good honest people who have values and morals.

Thanks for all your help and hope to do business with you in the future.
Have a very happy Christmas

Best Regards

George Wellings from Doncaster, South Yorkshire
“Purchased yet another superb motorcycle from Motorbiking. I had been buying new for the last few years but when it came to finding another mint condition, quality used bike again I had no hesitation in going straight to Guy when I saw this bike advertised on his website. Nice simple deal, bike perfectly as described and delivered bang on date and time”. “Always a pleasure”.

Al Day from Salisbury, Wiltshire.
To Paul & Guy just a quick email regarding the Honda vfr800i x , it is exactly as you described and more !! Very happy with the service I received from yourself and your team and I hope to deal with you again in the future .

Hello Paul & Guy,

Just wanted to say I'm over the moon with my FZ6. It runs like a dream and really is a great example - people keep saying it looks brand new! Cheers guys for the high-res photos, the top notch service, and the brilliant bike. I would not hesitate recommending Motorbiking to anyone looking for a quality motorcycle.

John visited our shop (not looking for himself he says), on the hunt for a first bike for his son who was about to do his test. John spotted our CBF1000 GT and ended up leaving a deposit!


Over the moon with the bike. Exactly what I was looking for! See you in a couple of weeks if my son passes his test..

Many thanks'

Dear Guy

I hope your journey back to Hampshire last week was quicker than the outward leg!

I am much happier now with the Speed Triple which is immaculate, beautifully prepared and everything I hoped it would be.

Thanks again for all your help (and patience!).

When the time comes around - as it surely will - I will not hesitate to buy another bike from you.

Best wishes

Phil from Herftfordshire
Dear Guy,

Thank you for your fair trading today. I have a feeling Richard would have pushed for more, and then would have seen sense and taken your offer.

I trust you got back without too much traffic delay.

Thank you for helping with the garage door problems as well.

I'll await your e-mail.

Please make sure that very special Harley goes to a good home.

Yours sincerely,

Hi Guy,

Just a short note to thank you for your prompt service and delivery to North East Scotland of the Triumph Tiger Exlorer.

Bike arrived on the carrier just as arranged and was, as described by you in your advert.

Thanks for a great deal and good service.
I will certainly use your services again in the future.

Many thanks and regards

Nigel Archer from North East Scotland
Paul & Guy,

Please accept this email as a thank you to you both for an easy and pleasant transaction.
I am over the moon with my new bike and delighted l chose your dealership.
Paul, I am grateful to you for a no nonsense, professional and honest exchange process, great trade-in value for my old bike and your bike was exactly as described, it is simply stunning.
I am 46, been biking just shy of 30 years and at my last count have owned 12 bikes. Without question, the standard of your bikes, trade in valuations and overall service is second to none.
I wish you both all the best for the doubt when the time comes l will be back!!

Just to say thank you for helping me with my first bike purchase in 14 years. Your patience and professional handling of the whole affair was much appreciated, other local dealers could learn a lot from these guys. The quality of their stock speaks for itself. Once again many thanks.

Hello Guy,

Just a quick note to say thanks very much for all your patience, advice and excellent service re the purchase of my CBF 600. I'm pleased that I made a good choice and am sure it will serve me well for my needs. Just looking for excuse to test out those panniers!

I'm very happy to recommend Motorbiking to anyone. I was given sound advice, realistic appraisals of a couple of bikes I was looking at and didn't feel pressurized in any way. Also, very impressed by the very quick turnover time (Monday - deal done ....... Wednesday - bike ready for collection - MOT, serviced etc.).

Thanks once again to all and look forward to seeing you again for the next one!

Hi Paul,

Received the Bonnie last week, after a full day's riding in the rain on a 600.

Happy everything went well, and that she's finally at home with me.

Thanks again for all your help!

I've recommended you guys to a few colleagues I met while training for my license.

Tim from London

Just wanted to let you know that I've now been out for 2 decent runs on the Pegaso, and I am delighted with it. It's always a bit of a worry when you buy a bike without riding it first, but I'm pleased to say it has more than met my expectations. It'll be ideal for trips where the Norge is a bit too big and cumbersome, and I am eagerly looking forward to loading up the panniers for a camping trip in the next couple of weeks.
The bike was prepared to a very nice standard, and the whole purchase process just seemed so easy.
Many thanks for all your help.

ps - the Power Commander certainly seems to do it's job, the fuelling pick-up is much better than I thought it would be.

Graham from Somerset

Hi Guy
Just a quick mail to thank you so much for the Harley which was exactly as you described and in perfect condition, thanks also to your great staff who's quiet confidence and assistance made the securing of the bike to the trailer far easier than I thought it could be, all in all a smashing buying experience and look forward to popping to see you during the summer, Thanks again

Hi Paul,
Just thought I'd send you an up date of my new purchase.
I'm extremely pleased with the Kawasaki ZZR1200,condition was as stated on phone and pics.
I traveled down from Staffordshire on your description.I wasn't disappointed.
After looking round your shop and the other stock,I was pleased to see that they too were very clean,very tidy and reasonably priced.
My son and I thoroughly enjoyed the ride home without incidents.
P.s done over 300 miles in a week :)

Jon from Staffordshire
Kawasaki ZZR1200 C1H
I saw a fantastic condition Speed Triple in the shop, really liked the look of it and was offered a test ride.It was great in many ways but not quite the right bike for me at the time. Unlike many shops there was no pressure after the test ride or sulky salesman, just a cheery “keep looking at our stock we might see you again”.
This I did and a few months later saw, tested and purchased a fully loaded,nice condition Tiger 800XC at a fair price and with peace of mind of Motorbiking's warranty .
The bike was great and Ive used it alot ,but after while I did have a problem, all be it a minor one, with the heated grips. A quick call to Guy, and instead of the usual “well its not really a main part of the bike" type of response Ive had before from dealers, straight away “yes bring it in well sort it”. Which they did.
So all in all if you want a dealer that as well as having a good stock of clean varied bikes, is very knowledgeable about bikes in general and treats you the same when you are handing over the cash or when you have a problem then give them a go, I will certainly deal with them again.
