‘Best bike dealer around, go speak to Bob, Mick or Alex, for your new bike, customer service first class, nice friendly salesman especially Bob who has always looked after me as a friend rather than just another customer. Also the garage staff nice people to talk to who have the time to listen and help where possible, and who know their stuff. Also the general manager Jonathan, will always look after you, and give you a great deal. Cannot fault them at all. A*****’

Purchased my first bike from Bolton Motorcycles with Bob, excellent salesman , every department is excellent, nothing is to much trouble. With being a new rider it is never a problem to just nip in and ask any questions I am unsure of. Helen, Patryk, Michael and Jonathan always willing to help. And the guys in the workshop look after any niggles.
