Hi guys

Really enjoyed the experience of purchasing my new bike through your shop. You made it a pleasure to deal with, at no time did I feel pressured to buy in any way. The Kawasaki Versys was exactly as you said it was and although the distance to your store is far, I have no hesitation in returning or recommending yourselves .

Many thanks

Just a note to say thank you to Guy. I rang on Monday enquiring about the Royal Enfield for my husband - bought it over the telephone and received the bike on Wednesday afternoon. The whole process was smooth and stress free and my husband is delighted. I would recommend the company to anybody wishing to purchase a bike.

Many thanks and hope to do business again

I would just like to say a massive thank you Guy, I had been looking for a Ducati 696 for months and every time I got in contact they had sold. All that disappointment was well worth it as this one was by far the best I had see. I live on the Isle of Man and so after putting down a small deposit I had to wait a week before a friend and myself could ride down to collect it, it was like winning the lottery and hoping no one would take it from you. When we pulled up outside it looked brand new! Absolutely fantastic condition just as he had described it. On walking into the shop he was so welcoming and all the bikes in there looked spotless. A very pleasant experience and would not hesitate to travel 280 miles and a boat again. When I come to buy another I will defiantly contact you first.

Kind regards

Nick Dent from the Isle of Man.

"I went looking for a Triumph Tiger 800 Road ABS and found an "as new" crystal white one with only 800 miles on the clock at Motorbiking Bournemouth, only 450 miles from my home in Hamilton! After speaking with Guy who described the bike to a T, I bought the bike blind with some trepidation, but confident that all would be OK. Despite having to wait a week or so to receive payment for my bike which was being sold privately, I never felt under any pressure to complete the deal. Delivery was easily arranged & when the bike arrived it was better than I had anticipated, it even smelt like new. I was absolutely delighted with the whole process & would not hesitate to recommend Motorbiking Bournemouth or buy another bike blind from them.
I regularly visit their website just in case something else takes my fancy.
If Carlsberg did motorcycle dealers, they would be like Motorbiking Bournemouth"

Well done!

I have a weekend to St Bees in the Lake District in April & an 11 day trip to Belgium & France in July planned for the Tiger, confident that both it & I will cope fine, after that who knows where we will end up.

Guy and Paul ……….. I can’t tell you how pleased I am with the Triumph Bonneville T100 that I purchased from Motorbiking. Thank you very much indeed for the valuable guidance and the very fair price that you gave me for the Royal Enfield that I traded in.

The Triumph really is in beautiful condition and is a credit to you. All I need now is the weather to enjoy it!

The other very positive aspect of Motorbiking that I would like to highlight is the comprehensive stock of previously owned motorcycles that you hold. So, for any motorcyclist in the market for a good condition, low mileage machine I would highly recommend a visit to Motorbiking of Christchurch. It is a real Alladin’s Cave. Like me they will not be disappointed!

Thank you once again.

Very best regards

Hi Guy/Paul

Just to say I'm very pleased with the Varadero, little less sporty than the Transalp but achieves it more smoothly. Heated grips made the journey home bearable.

Meantime it was very good experience dealing with you and I wont hesitate to recommend you to colleagues to check you out when they are looking for some new wheels. Hoping my friend in Weymouth will think about something like the Varadero. He's a bit tall for touring on the Triumph. I'll keep an eye on your website.

I purchased a Triumph Sprint ST 1050 from Motorbiking back in 2007 and have had that bike serviced and maintained by Tim in his workshop during 30,000 miles of ownership. In that time I have found Guy, Paul and Tim to be totally honest and fair. The support and back up for buyers of their motorcycles is impeccable. I wanted to change my bike and where to buy from was an easy decision. Having researched the options and looking at the Motorbiking website every week eventually the bike to suit me appeared. I did not need to visit and view; the photo and Guy’s assurance that the bike was mint was enough for me to decide and give a deposit to secure the Yamaha FJR1300A. I collected today and the bike is everything I expected – perfect. I know the Yamaha will receive the best attention during service and maintenance as my previous bike did. I would recommend Motorbiking to anyone looking to buy a motorcycle whatever your preference in type of machine. You get value for money, quality servicing and no hard sell technique. I live in Christchurch which is lucky – if I were further away I would travel to deal with Guy and the team. Thank you!

Just wanted to say a massive thank you for the fantastic service you provided when purchasing the R1 from you.
I have dealt with a few companies throughout my riding days and I can honestly say you were by far the best.
Nothing seemed to much trouble and that is rare to find these days.
Needles to say, the R1 is an absolute dream and has given me the biggest smile, even if it did feel like -10 riding home.
You will be the first place I contact when I change bikes and have already recommended you to a few fellow bikers.

Once again, thank you for all your hospitality and warmth through this purchase and I wish you the best of luck in the future.

Kind regards

Lee from Sherborne, Dorset.

From the first time I phoned Motorbiking I felt pleased with the friendly and professional manner.
I am absolutely delighted with the BMW F650CS which is an unusual model and hard to come by in this condition.
It is a very different bike but the ride is exactly as Guy advised.
Paul sorted obtaining & fitting additional parts I requested & Guy even delivered the bike to my home!

I rate my experience of dealing with Motorbiking as first rate.
I will certainly be contacting you when I look for another bike in future.

Many Thanks

Mike from Yateley, Hampshire.
To Guy & Paul,
Just wanted to say I bought this bike site unseen and went entirely on Guys description. Something I have never done before. I have not been disappointed. It is in perfect condition both the bodywork and mechanically. This saved me travelling from Devon to view it. I was also very impressed with Guy for honouring an agreement to arrange the transportation even though he was very ill.

A big thank you from me. Thanks Alan.

I would readily recommend this shop to anyone wanting to buy a bike. I viewed the bike before purchasing and it looked even better in person than the already impressive photos on the website. The guys there are honest, knowledgeable and friendly. I believe you could easily buy sight unseen if you live far away. I'll be riding my Guzzi up to the arctic circle this summer on a Scandinavian trip. So far I've snuck a few nice rides into this British winter when the rain clouds weren't looking.

Love the bike!

- Thanks for your kind comments Scott and the stunning picture of your bike at 5,000 ft. Very jealous! -

I purchased this bike in January and I cannot fault it in anyway. The team at Motorbiking were all very friendly and it made buying more enjoyable.
The only downfall was it snowed the day after guy delivered the bike so all I could do was look at it for three days.

Again thanks to all the team at Motorbiking.

Richard from Lee-on-the-Solent, Hampshire

This was the first bike I have bought unseen and I did have some
But after taking delivery last week I couldn't be more
pleased. The bike is just as Guy and your website photos described. The service you provided from beginning to end was faultless.
Many thanks also to the courier company you use as they delivered on
time even though the weather was terrible.
Your site will be the first place I will look if I consider buying
another bike.
Finally I would not hesitate in recommending you to anyone looking for a
great bike deal.


Dave Marshall from Hull, East Yorkshire
Thanks to Paul and the team for a really honest and personal process in buying my Bonneville. All the guys know what they're talking about, and talking through all my questions made the whole process easy and enjoyable!

Will from London
I recently took delivery of a Honda Hornet 900 and would like to thank the staff at Motorbiking in Bournemouth for what was a stress free experience from beginning to end.
Being unable to get to see the bike I had to rely on the high quality photos put on their website, and the honesty of the description given to me when I rang to enquire, which was "nut and bolt as new, never seen a wet road."
When delivered the bike fitted the description perfectly, a thorough inspection finding the "as new" claim was no exaggeration. The service book came showing a new full service prior to delivery and the standard of preparation was immaculate, just the sort of service customers want but sadly seems lacking so much nowadays.
Thanks again, and I wish you all the success in the future.

Going back to motorcycling after 25 years is difficult. CBT, Exam, Hazard Perception, Mod1 and Mod2, it confused the hell out of me. However, huge range of modern motorcycles confused me even more.
Paul and Pete from Motorbiking helped me to choose the "right" motorcycle. There are not many sales people you can trust. You are safe with Paul and Pete, as their intentions are: 1) Sell quality motorcycles 2) at the right price 3) that fits your needs or desires.
I am having too much fun with my Kawasaki Versys at the moment and when I wise up, the next one is a cruiser or tourer Paul!!! See you soon."

Take care.

Hi everyone,
I would like to thank you all at Motorbiking for your professional manner displayed when I purchased my motorcycle from you recently.My experience from start to finish was first class. The Internet description was as described and I was not disappointed when I saw the bike for the first time, having travelled a significant distance to view it. The transportation of my machine was handled professionally,and I have had trouble free riding since.
I can honestly say that I would have no problem purchasing another machine from yourselves and if anyone is hesitant about buying a bike from your company, don't be, pick up the phone and speak to the staff, they're all very helpful and honest and answer any questions you may have.

Many thanks again.

Hi Paul,

Just a quick thank you for your excellent service on my purchase of the FZ1N, it was as you described in mint condition. Not only that, you gave me more than a fair trade in price for my Z750 which I see was sold very quickly, nice to see that! No problems settling the finance, and I always felt welcome just browsing your quality stock. I will keep my eye out for a Ducati Streetfighter come the spring!
Once again a pleasure to do buisness with you,

John Hurst from Southbourne, Dorset.

Just recently bought my fifth bike from Motorbiking in six years - a ZX10R .
As usual the bike sold its self - as new condition - my mates came
with me to pick the bike up and they could well understand why I keep returning -
always a great deal and a friendly atmosphere and the coffee's not bad either.
I would like to thank Pete,Guy, Paul and Tim
Will be seeing you all very soon
P.S The Kawasaki ZX10R is awesome, I've got that grin back!

Mick from Alton, Hampshire.

Thank you very much for such a good straight forward transaction. The arrangements for delivering my new bike and returning my part exchange bike were first class. The transport firm SOS was a very professional set up and delivered on time with no problems.

I am very pleased with my bike and would not hesitate to deal with you in the future.

Many thanks

Bill from York, North Yorkshire.
Hi Guy, Paul and Peter,

I thought I would send you an email to let you know my Suzuki GSX 1400 arrived safely in Inverness, on Wednesday night about 8 pm, the SOS Delivery driver was very professional and careful as he unloaded the bike and I was well impressed with his hand over talk etc. The bike was as described by yourselves (right down to the smallest marks you mentioned) and as seen on your high resolution pictures you provide, immaculate, I am very impressed. I took it out for a run yesterday and it did not disappoint, it is a gem of a bike! I can not thank you enough for your honest and frank smooth running service you have provided me and I will certainly recommend others to use your reliable and slick sales procedure and more importantly your honest opinion of the bike, which the primary concern when buying a bike unseen 675 miles away.

I recently bought a Honda CB600F Hornet from Motorbiking Bournemouth
and would like to thank the whole team for making my experience of
upgrading to a bigger bike so enjoyable and stress free. I'd been
looking for a new bike since I passed my DAS test earlier in the year
and the Hornet in gleaming gold and in immaculate condition at
Motorbiking caught my attention. I rang and spoke to Paul and said
that I hoped to come and view the bike at the weekend (being based in
Barnstaple didn't wan't to make the journey only to find that the bike
had been sold!!) After ringing again before we set off Paul said he
would hold the bike until we arrived - which was very much
appreciated. It made the journey much less stressful knowing that the
bike would definitely be there when we arrived!! When we arrived the
bike was just as described and I was over the moon - which I think the
whole team couldn't fail to notice. It was just so good to find
somewhere that deals in great quality bikes and cares about the
customer too. I was made to feel very welcome and the guys answered
all the questions I had (and the cuppa was very appreciated after the
drive from North Devon!) Getting the bike delivered was also no
problem for the guys and despite thinking I might need to wait 10 days
(which isn't very long at all) the bike was delivered after only 4
days! I am loving riding around on my Hornet- it is everything I had
hoped it would be! I would like to thank everyone at Motorbiking for
making things so pleasant. I will be sure to recommend you to everyone
and if in a few years time I feel the need for another change you can
be sure I will be coming to Bournemouth for a visit!

Thanks again for everything.

All the best

Michelle from Barnstable, Devon
I would be delighted to contribute to your testimonial page as (needless to say), I have always been at least 100% satisfied in my dealings with Motorbiking! Every deal (there have been many) has been handled quickly, professionally and thoroughly with each bike purchased always exactly as promised; checked and prepared ‘ready to go’ and backed by first rate customer service. Motorbiking has never failed to meet my expectations in full and has my unreserved recommendation!

I just thought that I would drop you a note to say how pleased I am with the Suzuki SV1000S I recently purchased from you. It is exactly as you described and I cannot fault it's condition or standard of preparation. The delivery people, S.O.S., were also equally professional. Friends and family thought that I was mad to even consider buying a bike I had not seen, but you have proved them all wrong!

I will have no hesitation in recommending your excellent service. Well done!

Best regards,

Nigel from Inverness, Scotland
Suzuki SV1000S
The experience as a whole was excellent & very smooth, with an emphasis put on making me feel relaxed as a customer with no forceful sales pressures as you typically get with a larger mainstream dealer. The bike was even better than described in my opinion, perfect. I will definitely be back for another bike... if I can sneak it past the boss indoors...!

Funny enough I was going to pop in the other day to take a look at that Factory Aprilia you have, have resisted so far because of what happened the last time I popped in to just 'take a look at an Aprilia'... don't have the room for another bike at the moment otherwise I'm fairly sure I would have bought it...!
