Art Of Motorcycle Maintenance

Art Of Motorcycle Maintenance

One of the most important things we needed to accomplish before we headed south was to have some minor work done on our bikes and have them thoroughly checked by a skilled mechanic. Steve Prokop, owner of Bavarian Motorcycle Service, was the master mechanic who did the work for us. For my 1200 GS Adventure Steve replaced the tires with a new set of Anakee Wild, replaced the rear brake pads, changed the oil and checked all of the nuts and bolts. On Omar’s 800 GS Adventure he adjusted the chain and the steering head and also checked all of the nuts and bolts.

While working on our bikes, Steve also showed us how to do some routine maintenance and what things to inspect daily to ensure our bikes are kept in good working order.

If you live in the Portland area and are ever in need of top quality service on your BMW, Steve Prokop’s Bavarian Motorcycle Service is simply the best shop in town. You will not be disappointed.
