Where Can I Find A Honest, Reasonable, Honda Dealer or Shop In San Diego County?

I was a little surprised to find out how much Honda authorized service is just for my first 600 mile check. Both shops told me that the cost was going to be around $300 to change the oil, and examine my bike. My first thoughts were, "are you &#@% kidding me?"

I want to change out my Honda VTX 1300c handle bars to the VTX 1300 R cruiser style handle bars. Again the Honda authorized dealers seemed surprise that I was considering this. The service centers quoted around $500 which included parts and labor. Wow! This is indeed an expensive hobby.

What motorcycle shop, dealer or well known seasoned mechanic do you recommend around San Diego County? I know changing out a set of handle bars, which may include installing new cables for the brakes, clutch , and throttle shouldn't be that difficult for a seasoned mechanic or shop that specializes in custom work.

Finally, what type of windshield do you recommend Memphis Shade or National Cycle Switchblade?

Take care brothers and sisters.
