When I bought the Hornet, the dealer had a branch out here about 2 kays away from where I live. It was great; if I needed to buy something, I just ambled over and got it. Likewise with service. But then he closed the branch, and I have been forced to travel 20 kays into Wollongong. No big deal you say, but since I work in Sydney from dawn till dusk, it was less than ideal. On the ride to the Ranch the other night the bike overheated in traffic, and I found that the thermo fan wasn't working. Faced with the upcoming trip to Melbourne, and my tedium at getting the bike back and forwards to Wollongong, I went to see the local Yamaha dealer here in Oak Flats. No problems, they said, bring it round on Saturday morning. I dropped it off and three hours later picked it back up again, with the electrics sorted out, and a modest $80 charge. So I have it booked in for a full service next Saturday morning. Mark at David Fraser Motorcycles has my undivided attention at the moment!!
