    Default Servicing bike within warranty

    Howsit guys

    Just wanting to know, is there any place, except the big boy/ jonway dealers (i have my reasons) i can have my bike serviced at and still maintain the warranty?

    I am in Cape Town area.

    My bike is nearing 3000kms, when its on about 2200kms now, so im starting to look for places to do the service.

    Any advice please.

    Seems their list of dealers is a tad outdated.

    I guess they opened up 2 new stores. The 1 bike salesman of the cbd was at the Century branch. He is the tall skinny 1 with a red Hyuson bike.

    Hah! You will think that until you come the JHB!

    I have now learned the JHB is the slowest of the two, and the fact that everyone is rushing everywhere is a myth, because they all stuck in traffic!
    Ricers are bikers too!

    I can't vouch for the workshops of either but both have managers/owners that like things done right the first time.
