Stefan Tesic Djuric
Alex and the team were 10/10 to deal with. Super knowledgeable, helpful and most importantly honest! No funny business and very fast service! I was recommended to go to them by a friend and I'm glad I listened. Been to two other mechanics before and glad I finally found a great one I can stick with! Would recommend to anyone!
Nic Whitehead
Just had the FZ8 serviced by Alex today. Everything felt great on the ride home. Alex had the job done by mid-morning. Got lots of good advice for things to watch in future services. Reasonable prices too. I much prefer to take my bikes to dedicated mechanical workshops, rather than the large franchise/chain dealerships.

Skinny's Garage is the only place that works on my bikes. He's done great work on my DR650 which is now about to go in for some repairs after I drowned her will be treated with a 790cc big bore kit. I've never been disappointed with work or prices from skinnys. Would give 6 stars If I could
