It is a pleasing thing to have someone do just what they say they can do, in the time they said they can do it. I have been to loads of bike shops to have
my bike serviced (Thundercat) and have never been so satisfied with the work, dedication and passion that BMS display. Very happy. Highly recommended.

What a great service.
Sally Meacher 12/11/2017
I am not sure that this bike has ever run as well as it does now. I know it took some time to find the issue, but find it you did and I am so thankful. I love my CBR and now I have it back, better than ever.
Chris Windle 12/10/2017
Go BMS, it was a great experience working with you, it was simple to see how passionate you are about your work. I learned so much and will go out to get some decent tools as your kit shamed mine!
Phillip Wall 27/09/2017
Thanks for helping me out in my hour of need. I have taken the bike in to London over the past few days and the clutch and fan have done their jobs and I have encountered no issues. Long may it last.
Ian Carrie 20/08/2017
Just wanted to say thanks for the advice you gave me and the service, I know it’s what I paid for but makes a refreshing change to chat and see what actually goes on from someone who clearly has a passion for bikes. Thanks again.

Hi Simon, just wanted to say thank you for the superb work you have done to my Honda today. He has been like a dream for my run into work and I am not sure he has ever felt this good. Additionally thank you for letting me get involved, I know I made you take longer, but the fact that you didn’t charge me extra was a real boon. I love the service that you offer, and would readily recommend you and your company to anyone. Such a refreshing change.
Samual Timuss 08/08/2017
Well done BMS, you have done the impossible – restored my faith in motor mechanics. I have trawled around looking for support from shops who I felt offered a service tailored to me and yet, enable me to feel well treated and fairly charged after my last mechanic retired and had drawn the conclusion that the world was a changed place where I was second on the list of priorities. Not so. BMS is great, I had to wait for a booking, but that will happen with a great service, and I am happy to do so again. Thank you.
Renato DuClaire 07/07/2017
Thank to you simon, my bike is much better. 2 garages try to sort it but you found the problem thank you.
Peter Saunders 30/03/2017
Used the Bandit for work today. Started on the button and rode lovely. Thanks again for the great service.
Hannu Kuosmanen 27/02/2017
Thanks so much for today and getting my bike running again!
Phil Munn 27/02/2017
Excellent excellent service from Simon today, arrived dead on time talked through and sorted my fuel line problem in no time at all, very knowledgable and happy to show me and talk me through everything that was being sorted, cannot rate these guys enough! Will be seeing them for a full service at the end of March! Thanks again !
Nick Baddeley 26/02/2017
Thanks Simon it was a pleasure to chat with you and thanks for explaining things as you went along. I have already given your name to a mate of mine who is looking to buy a Divi 900.
I will let you know next time I need anything on the Daytona

I can highly recommend Bannons Motorcycle Service. Simon is the kind of specialist you don't actually think exists. He was sure to explain everything he was going to do and put my mind totally at ease. He is a very nice guy too. He clearly loves his bikes as well!
Jack Hope 26/01/2017
I instructed Simon to service my 125 cc Honda CBF, which really needed doing as I was having a few issues. Having used main dealer servicing in the past, I never felt I was getting value for money, and it seemed I was being led down the garden path. From the moment I shook Simon's hand I knew the bike was in good hands. It was a good experience as Simon explained each part of the service what he was doing and what different parts on the motorcycle did. He quickly diagnosed the issue I was having which was a faulty rear wheel bearing, and he returned with a colleague at a later date to change bearing, sprockets and chain, and fit a new tyre, unfortunately the bearing had took these as hostages so had to have them changed!
So if you have any doubt at all about using Bannons then don't! I fully recommend Simon and his company, so professional, very friendly and prices are extremely reasonable. Thank you again!
It was a great feeling that I could see that my bike was getting a service, and I could interact with the work. For the first time ever, I felt that I was getting what I was paying for. More so actually, as the service (level2) was much cheaper that I paid in other shops. All in all, this was a great service, Merry Christmas.
Paul Buttery 05/12/2016
Highly recommend BMS for your motorcycle service. Simon is a very knowledgeable and trustworthy mechanic. Simon collected my bike to carryout a tier 4 service as I wanted a full overhaul of my bike keeping me informed every step of the way. Couldn't be happier thanks again.
Sally McGill 19/11/2016
I felt so sorry for the staff at BMS as it was blowing cold I was happy to be inside! They worked tirelessly as transformed my CBR before my eyes, the prices were reasonable to the point of ridiculous, and although I made cups of tea, I felt I was cheating them! They finished ontime, leaving my bike all the better. Thank you X
Phillip Bronson 11/11/2016
I thought by bike was beyond help until I met Simon. A project build was offered that put her back together and I truly feel she has never ridden as well as this. Shame it’s so cold, but i cannot wait for the summer BMS all the way.
Vanessa Wilson 23/10/2016
Thank you Simon, it was great to see such workmanship on display, coupled with a very friendly attitude makes a winning formula, and mobile of course.
James Philpot 22/10/2016
It is tricky to put on here anything others have not already said, but the service was second to none.
Simon Cocker 18/09/2016
I had no idea that a company like BMS existed until a Google search came up trumps. My bike was treated to a LVL3 service, which really got a going over! I worked from home that day to watch what was going on, but such was the detail, I actually worked, while the boys toiled over the service. They spent the whole day on the bike, and were continually active. I topped them up with coffee, and found that my bike at the end of the service has never felt as good as it does now. Thank you BMS
Henry Vine 06/09/2016
After I got a quote from a few places I settle on BMS as the best option. it was more inexpensive than others, and when they arrived to service my Thundercat, I could plainly see I had made the best decision. Serviced right in front of me, I had no idea how much work these guys were planning to do, but a whirr of activity had me astounded. I greatly enjoyed the BMS format and happily recommend them to everyone.
Hilary Wilson-James 08/08/2016
As I booked BMS on balance of this feedback, it is only fair I write my experience. 1 word, wonderful. Happily a customer for life, thank you so much X
Christian Dennis 28/07/2016
Calling Bannons was quite refreshing, the guy on the phone was good humoured and we chatted for some time before we spoke about the bike, the issue was resolved over the phone, but as I am mechanically inept, they came out and repaired my bike. Simon was the mechanic on the day and he was very patient, brimming with good information, and whilst I will not get involved mechanically (even more so now that I have found Bannons!) it was a joy to see someone so happy in their work and knowledgeable to boot.
Gilly Widdow 18/06/2016
I must hand it to BMS, they did indeed exceed my expectations. Simon, the mechanic, walked me through the repairs to my motorcycle and i felt that (for the first time) that I really am getting the expected value for my money, but when the bill came in, it was a lot less than I expected to pay. Thank you BMS.
Sam Carter 12/06/2016
I am so thankful Simon, the bike had been running like a dog since the first day I got it, I had almost begun to think it was supposed to be like that, but you blew your spanners at it and it is a different machine. I am so happy, finally able to ride the bike it was supposed to be.
David Pleat 08/06/2016
It was your feedback on your website that spurred me to call you ahead of all the other shops and I am so happy that I did. I have read of "second to none service" amongst other comments on your website and felt that you had the qualities I was looking for. My Fireblade has never been bad, and yet there were some things I was never happy with despite other shops looking for (and failing to find) issues. You spotted the head bearing fault straight away from my comments of low speed weave coupled with badly set up suspension. Now fixed, I realise this bike has such amazing potential. Your further help with riding position has helped enormously, I cannot thank you enough, and as it was the feedback that bought you to me, it is only fair I give you feedback as well. I hope that you always do well Simon. You have been the often commented "Breath of fresh air".
Robert Preston 04/06/2016
An absolute second to none service. The attention to detail is almost unbelievable. Maybe all bike shops are like this behind closed doors, but I seriously doubt most are. It was interesting to see my bike open up, and quite enlightening how much work is involved in a small service. I am very interested in seeing your skills put to use on a much larger service next year. Thank you for now. See you soon.
Sally Krupp 18/05/2016
My moped is back to beautiful again thanks to you. He feels smooth and just like he should, thank you
Justin Wilmott 13/05/2016
Hi Simon, just a quick not to say thank you to you and Dan for such a wonderful display of workmanship. The hive of activity around my bike almost took my breath away, and when the movement ceased, the bike was perfect lol. Rides really well, sounds really good and feels completely different from what you saw when you arrived. Thank you. What a great service.
Tim Wilkinson 11/05/2016
Hi, Just took the Gixer out, $@## brilliant. Started 1st time, no shaking on the brakes and handling lovely, what a bike. Thanks alot, see you soon.
Alexander Koch de Gooreynd 28/04/2016
Thanks Simon, she ran like a dream this morning.
Grace Oliver 19/04/2016
Although I wanted my bike serviced, I was never sure what I was getting. I always
expect to have the wool pulled over my eyes somewhat, but reading the reviews on
your website (especially from the women) I felt you were the right shop for me. I
was totally right. You very much deserve the feedback you have received. I hope
you print mine. Thank you Simon.
Paul Gainsborough 12/04/2016
Thank you BMS, your diagnosis was spot on. The bike is fixed and running like a dream.
