Customer Testimonials

The following testimonials have been submitted by satisfied Motorbiking customers!

Just had to let you all know at Motorbiking what a pleasure it was to do business with you, just sometimes you find a bike shop that says what it means on the tin,the GSXR750 was described as mint on your website,and after some 40 years as a biker ,mint can mean a lot of things, how surprised I was after traveling some 90 miles to your showroom. I run a small motorbike club and the guys were more than impressed with my bike.
The bike was spot on in every way,really helpful when I arrived to pick up the bike ,would recommend this bike shop to any one ,thanks again.

Hi Paul and Guy

The T100 arrived today, as the sun was shining, it looks immaculate, rides fabulously, (so smooth and well balanced, yet with a bit of punch if you need it)

I have been so impressed with your service, and attention, I must admit to a slight worry at buying a bike I hadn't seen before, but you assured me that I wouldn't be disappointed - you were right - it's a fantastic bike that looks and rides perfectly.

Thanks again

Just been out on the Norge and its brilliant. Loved everything thing about it. It is quirky, the engine is lovely, sounds great and pulls like a good un. Thanks for the help and service. Looking forward to many hours of riding in the sun!

Many thanks for selling me the 2008 Kawasaki Z750 with ABS. I have been looking around for one for ages. The machine was absolutely mint and as described. Having the service done before I picked it up was really helpful. Your customer service was very polite and professional - even though it was a busy Saturday. You have a great carefully chosen range of stock there. Your garage bit looks exactly how a workshop should do. To everybody - it's worth the travel down to Christchurch to get your machine there - you won't be disappointed. The train station really is just under 10 minutes walk away.... there is also a Premier Inn very close by. I've done about 800 miles on it now travelling in and out of Bristol to work everyday - and I am really happy with my purchase. Thanks again - hope to see you in the future sometime when I want to get something else! Cheers !!

Regards and thanks,

Hi Guy & Paul

A big thank you for a very professional and friendly advice in the purchase of my Yamaha FZ6 S2. This is the third bike I have brought from Motorbiking and I have no doubt that I will not be disappointed.
Your showroom has a superb selection of mint condition well maintained second hand bikes that never fail to impress. Add to that the friendly no nonsense trade in deals and it is always a pleasant experience when buying a bike from Motorbiking.
Highly recommended to anyone looking for a quality second hand bike, good luck for the future.

Kind regards

Steve from Bournemouth Dorset.

The DL1000 v-strom I bought was a fantastically well kept machine and
will be a great ride for the years to come
The guys are very organised, knowledgeable and friendly and I wouldn't hesitate to deal
with everyone at Motorbiking in the future..
Kind regards

Hi Guy and Paul

Once again I am delighted with your advise, help and service to me with my recent purchase of the Hayabusa from you.

I bought a 1250 Bandit from you last Spring and was so impressed with you and the pure quality of your used machines that I could not help myself returning to buy the "Busa" from you.

As a returning customer I felt valued by you and came away once again with exactly the deal that I wanted. You really did "look after me" on the Bandit trade in.

Assuming that I survive the thrills of the Busa (without any spills) I will most definitely be returning to you once again when I am ready for a change.

With Motorbiking Christchurch not only do you get precisely what you see - you also get what you are promised.

Thank you

Simon from Blandford, Dorset.
Hi Guy

Well 27 bikes bought from Motorbiking and what can I say? I have bought bikes from Pete, Guy and a long time ago even Adrian I think!
Their level of enthusiasm, attention to detail and after service is second to none in my opinion.

Over the years I have usually traded up, but when times were tough or I needed cash, in a hurry they always managed to work out a deal and help me out.
My latest bike was bought on the 23rd of December and Guy informed me he had given himself a deserved break over Christmas, so could I phone him on the 2nd of January.

Well I love Christmas but those few days couldn't go by quick enough, so on the 2nd I phoned at 5 past 9....well I thought I'd let them get through the door!
I spoke to Paul and Guy, who apparently said when the phone rang 'who the hell can that be'!

After passing the phone over Guy said they would get the bike Moted and would I like it delivered that afternoon? :-)

When Guy arrived at my house he asked if I wanted to check over my Speed Triple to make sure I was happy before he unloaded it having not seen it in the flesh. I didn't have to look even though over the years I have bought bikes from OTHER dealers and very nearly always been let down, disappointed and more than once blatantly lied too!
I did look though and as usual, no problems with the bike just as I expected, still can't believe I have this brilliant 1050 speed triple sat I my garage :-)

Thanks to everyone at Motorbiking
Keep up your excellent quality and service as I'm sure this won't be my last purchase

Andy from Southampton
Triumph SPEED TRIPLE 1050
Hello Paul Varadero was delivered this morning.Its absolutely minted. Am not dissapointed as you said! Wasn't sure about buying without seeing first, but to be honest your website looked honest and the testimonials sold it to me. Can't thank you enough. Bought bike for my son for his seventeenth birthday and to replace his scooter which was written off in an accident (other driver didnt see him! ). He is well pleased with it, just need to teach him how to change gears now!
Would recommend you to anybody.

Many thanks

Iain from Glasgow
Hi Guy & Paul,

A quick note of thanks to you both for my Fazer 1000 and the great customer service you have provided. Very pleased. I had been considering a change for some time and have always liked the Gen 1 Fazer. Sure enough, if you keep looking Motorbiking always seem to come up with the perfect bike for you. I was lucky to find that an immaculate low mileage model had just arrived. Following a visit to see the bike in the flesh and a short test ride, I decided to proceed subject to a fair trade in deal on my previous bike. The Fazer was priced towards the top end due to its condition and mileage, however I received a generous trade-in deal too on my previous bike due to its age and condition, making the cost of change a very reasonable deal overall. Following purchase and after a fair few miles, I noticed that the clutch didn’t quite feel right when the bike is hot. I contacted Guy and Paul and they checked the bike over, agreed with me and arranged that a replacement clutch was supplied and fitted without quibble and the bike is now spot on – First class customer service. I would definitely recommend Motorbiking if you are looking for a change. You only have to look at the pictures on their website to see the quality of the bikes they sell.

The CBF 1000 that I picked up from you last week is the second bike that I have bought from you and I am delighted with this one as much as the first one.The customer service was excellent,I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone looking for a Quality Motorcycle,

Many Thanks

Martin from Poole, Dorset
Honda CBF1000 A-9 ABS
Hi Guy,just a quick note to say a huge thank you for making my purchase such a pleasant experience. I had been looking for some time for a clean, well-maintained R1 and had visited many showrooms only to find that “mint condition” seemed a loose definition!
That said, Guy’s fantastic photographs on his website showed the bike in such close detail that it gave me the confidence to take a 2 hour trip to Christchurch in the hope that this was indeed a mint bike. And I wasn’t disappointed. Not only was the R1 in question a spotless example, but every other motorcycle in his showroom was equally as impressive! Guy clearly is not interested in selling average second-hand bikes, only well-kept quality ones!
I would not hesitate in recommending Guy and Motorbiking to anyone – if you are looking for a dealer that offers great value for money, an impressive range, and careful stocking of only mint condition bikes, this should be the first place to look.
Thanks for making this such an easy buying decision, it’s nice to meet a dealer that truly cares about the bikes he sells and the friendly experience he offers.
See you next time I change my wheels.

Thanks again

Martin from Epsom, Surrey.

Hi Guy,
As promised - I'm writing you an e-mail, as I got home.

I took the bike from you and next 15 days I rode it through all kinds of conditions and roads - night, highways, country roads, fog, rain and mountain passes. I took the bike to Verdon Gorge and Col du Turini and it handled perfectly everything I was throwing at her. And the ride on the coast of French Riviera was pure pleasure.

Just as you promised - the bike took me safely 3000 mile to home in Bulgaria without a single hitch. Thank you for your efforts and help.

By the way - videos from my helmet cam are available:

Col du turini -

Good weather, a bit late in the day, all the luggage is on top of the bike )

Cinque terre -

(Wet road, rain all day )

Best regards and thank you once again.

Hi There Guy

I received the bike as promised on Friday and boy you were not joking when you said it was mint, she is beautiful I am very happy with the purchase. Today I took her for an 80 mile trip up and down some of the Welsh Valleys and hills, what a Joy to Ride.

Again Many Thanks

Many thanks for all your hard work last Saturday morning when I decided to purchase the Yamaha XVS 1300 Midnight Star from yourselves.Considering the bike only arrived late Friday afternoon and I bought the bike by 9.15 Saturday morning you both worked hard getting the bike mot`d,taxed,serviced,and valeted and ready for me to collect mid afternoon the same day.This is the second bike I have purchased from yourselves and as usual the high level of service and standards are second to none. I would not hesitate to highly recommend you to anyone.Wishing you all at Motorbiking continued success for the future.

Firstly I have to say thank you to Guy and the team at Motorbiking for such a brilliant, friendly and hassle free purchase!!

I had recently sold an Aprilia Tuono, and fancied a complete change so decided to find a Triumph Rocket 3, I spent about a week trawling the internet, and looking at bikes, but I kept getting drawn back to the Rocket 3 advertised at Motorbiking, simply because it looked so clean compared to everything else available, even some of the much newer ones.

I spoke with Guy and another member of the team who assured me that I would be incredibly happy with the bike. I then did something I have never done in all the time I have been riding... I bought it unseen over the phone :-0. I must say I didn't sleep a lot that night...... but I didn't have to worry. Guy had the bike serviced the next morning and it was delivered to me the day after that...... brilliant!!

So there I am (sweating like a cornered nun) waiting for the delivery driver to open the van door to see what I had bought..... and I'm looking at a beautiful 04 plate Rocket that seriously looks like a new one!!! The delivery guy rolls it out into the sun, and it shines like a shilling up a sweeps arse.. simply stunning...

When I need another bike, my first port of call will be Guy and the team!!


PS... think I better ride it down to you to see who I bought it off lol

Gawain from Lavendon, Milton Keynes.

Just a quick line to thank you for the unbelievable service we received from you. The bike was in excellent condition as described and your service and help were outstanding. Sorry we kept you back so long after your shop closed, but you never complained once, and the thrill of riding home on the new cruiser was unbelievable.
You have changed the whole experience of buying a used bike and I know where I will be heading the next time i am looking for a change.

Many thanks

Nigel and Joanne from Bridgewater, Somerset.
Hi Guy

Came to your shop on recommendation from a friend, and I have certainly not been disappointed. Everything on the description on the website was exactly how the bike was in the flesh (so to speak). Excellent sales service with no pressure. Fantastic back up service.
For anyone looking for a high quality, low mileage motorcycle, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Motorbiking. You will be the first port of call if I am ever looking to change my bike.

Thanks again

Liz from Bournemouth
Triumph DAYTONA 600
"After a friend and I recently returned from the Catalunya MotoGP we both had a bee in our bonnet about getting road bikes again. My mate quickly sorted himself out with a new Zed1000. On seeing the bike up close I really liked the style of it so set about searching for one for myself and came across this little beauty. The pictures looked great and the bike seemed in immaculate condition - which was great because I'm a bit anal with cleaning myself! When I saw the bike I was not disappointed and having a quick browse at Guy's other bikes in the shop - as you do! - it typified the quality of the stock he holds.
Having test ridden the bike I was smitten but I'm not one to make an impulsive, emotional decision wanting to think it over over a coffee. There was no pressure from Guy despite another interested party who'd been on the phone whilst I was out on the test ride! 30mins later it was decision made and the deal was done! Guy helped me load the bike into the van and off I went happy as a pig in the proverbial!
It was an absolute delight to deal with both Guy and Paul. Really friendly, personable chaps.
I can't recommend Motorbiking Bournemouth enough and certainly would not hesitate to buy another bike from them in the future. Thank You.

P.S - I'm not normally one to post loads of cr*p on Facebook but I put a pic of my new toy on there when I got home and got it uploaded and I've never had so many 'likes' and positive comments. Everyone thinks it looks AWESOME, really slick and aggressive, and the best bit ................. it's mine!!!! :-)
Thanks again Guy (and Paul).

Hi, Guy...
Thanks for the great service I had when buying my ZZR1200 from you. Having chatted on the phone and seen the pictures of the bike on your website, I thought the 3 hour train journey to Christchurch would be worth it. It certainly was. The bike was in fabulous condition for a 9 year old bike. I've had 2 ZZR 1200s before, so it was like riding my old bike home, a pleasant journey over the hills from your shop. The bike was very well behaved, and I have no hesitation in recommending your shop and services to anyone wishing to buy a quality bike.

Best Regards,

Hi Guy,

Many thanks for getting my bike to me so quickly. I know you were really busy but found time to drive to my house in Berkshire, late in the evening to make sure I got my Honda Shadow a.s.a.p.
The whole process of buying my bike was done in a professional manner and I felt like a valued customer.
I would recommend you to anyone, wishing to purchase a bike.
Great service, great bike. I would definitely use your services again in the future.

Hi Guy!
Just wanted to say what a pleasure it was to do business with you & your shop.
The whole experience was hassle free & just how it should be.
I am absolutely delighted & loving my new bike it is just perfect for me.
The service I received from you was truly exceptional truly first class & I certainly would have no hesitation from purchasing again from you.
I purchased my new bike on the Monday & I had it delivered the very next day, yes on Tuesday by the "boss himself" ( Guy ) which was an even more personal experience an even nicer touch!
Many thanks to you Guy & to all your team.
Keep up the good work!

Hi Guy
Many thanks for the excellent service when I did a deal with you last week.
I had a lovely day riding the V-Strom down to you from Norwich to trade in and then riding the B-King home.
As you had stated in your ad the B-King is absolutely mint, everyone who has seen it had said it looks brand new. I am thoroughly enjoying it.
I would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone.

Best Regards

Hi Guy,

Just a quick e-mail to thank you and the team for the excellent service I received when purchasing my Triumph Rocket III Touring recently, the whole process was completely stress and pain free!
Having been in the motor trade for more years than I care to remember it was refreshing to come across a dealer that was honest in their advertising and it was such a pleasant surprise to find that the bike was ‘as described’ in fact I would suggest that it was better than I had expected.
I would unreservedly recommend Motorbiking to anyone who is looking for genuine value for money and I would not hesitate to buy from you again.
Best wishes for the future and keep up the good work.

Best regards

Steve King from Westbury Wiltshire
