Cuenca - Ecuador

It´s near the airport but at walking distance from the town centre.
Nice place, they speak good english, very helpful.

It is mainly a Harley Davidson dealer but they are as likely to work on big BMWs (We saw a 1200GS there when we went to buy oil for our bikes.)

Recommended.

It seems like Maria and I visit all of the same shops. The main mechanic at this shop is Richard and he really knows his stuff and they charge fair prices. A couple of things to look out for though is if you have a problem with your radiator maybe take the radiator to a different repair shop than the one that they are using. My radiator started to leak from the weld they made one country later. Also (if it is a bmw), go back and double check that all the parts they removed were installed correctly again. I noticed that a few of the wires and other things of minimal importance were not in the right location.

I spent a month learning Spanish in Cuenca and know all the motorcycle shops there. The shop that stocks the most parts and tires is Austro Motors address: Presidente Cordova I-71. They are kind of close to Esteban Motors and Richard will be able to give you directions if needed.

Hi Peter, the Spanish schools are good. I think there are about 6 well known schools. I was able to get lessons on the side for $4 an hour from a professor who taught at one of the schools. She was really good and let me know if you want her contact info. I will have to search for it.
