So, I need a workshop in Johannesburg
 
Hey there,

I am doing a motorcycle world tour and South Africa is my 50th country.
I ride a 2004 Honda Transalp.


Any idea where can I find a goog workshop for my bike? I need to change chain and tyres desperately :D :scooter:

Where are you, CT, DBN or JHB?

saliadarunavuelta 3 Jan 2012 16:37

I am in Johannesburg at the moment.
I need a workshop here, my chain is in a quite dramatic situation and it should not go any further :innocent:

I dealt with these guys as well and they were great.

I'll try that!
I've contacted Full Throttle. The sales guy told me to talk to the workshop guy who told me to talk to the parts guy and the parts guy never heard about my bike. Absurd.

Just called the guys from offroadcycles.co.za
At least they sounded humans. And genuinely interested in helping.
Not like the robots in Honda. What a bunch of douches.

Been a decade, since I was there (riding a rented KLR)... but I think you should get parts and tyres from many shops in Jo´burg. Not sure, if they´ll have bike-specific parts for a Transalp readily available, though. Sorry, that I cannot be more of assistance, my info is probably too old.

I'm sure he'll be able to help you or make a plan if he can't. I've heard from a few people that Full throttle is a bit of a hit and miss. Lucky to get someone who actually wants to help you.

PM me if you have any trouble, I'm a regular on Wilddog and should to point you in the right direction

When I am in a foreign country and need a bikeshop or parts, I buy a motorcycle magazine and look in the adds. South Africa has several bike magazines so it should not be a big problem to find a bikeshop.

Just so you know, offroadcycles.co.za is a great place, friendly people, good job, not so expensive.
