BMW, Ducati repair shop with 30 yrs experience. Jefferson, New Orleans, Louisiana

After clocking up over 68,000 miles riding through Latin America I return to the safety of U.S. roads only to be driven into the by an unobservant SUV driver whilst waiting at a red light. Thankfully it appears that my pannier system absorbed most of the impact but I limped on to New Orleans to find a reputable mechanic to help bend things back into place thus allowing me to continue with my trip.

A search on the internet helped me discover Chuck House, who had a string of five star references from satisfied customers, so I tracked him down. He just moved shops and I was fortunate enough to meet more satisfied customers there as well as people turning up on recommendation. It appears that this is one guy who's not suffering during the recession!

Best of all Chuck took me to lunch, paid for it, and then diligently bent my pannier frame back so I could use it again. And to top it all he refused payment asking instead that I pass on the goodwill to someone else on the road.

Chuck specialises in BMW, Moto Guzzi, Norton, Ducati & Triumphs, but I'm certain he is competent fixing many other motorcycles too.

You can find him at:

Chuck House

Thanks easyg for posting this. We had a problem with one of our bikes, oil leak.
We found the address quite easy but unfortunately he is no longer situated there.
