The following are independent BMW motorcycle mechanics that have been recommended by others or listed by themselves. Comments in quotes come from people who do not work at these shops. At one time, this list was maintained by Harvey Cohen. He lost access to the server he was using, so we transferred it here. Thanks to Harvey for all his efforts!
The table is listed by state, province or, for those outside of the U.S. and Canada, by country. Comments in quotes are from list memb3rs, otherwise the comments are what the shop owner says about themselves.
If your favorite wrench is not listed, send me the information and I will add them to the directory.

|"I have another recommendation for an independent BMW repair shop. Hank Arriazola is a long time BMW tech with 17 years experience. He worked for RhineWest the BMW car and motorcycle independent shop in San Antonio, TX for a number of years. He specializes in oilheads and K bikes. He is now out on his own in South Texas in Dilley. I have used his services several times and would recommend him without reservation as a very thorough and competent tech."|
