"Took my 2009 Electra Glide Classic in for the 48,000 km service... I printed out the official HD maintenance list off the Internet and brought in with me... They did the complete maintenance schedule and checked it off as they did it... Awesome job at way less the price than the HD dealer... I'll be back to get my brakes done and a rear tire installed... for sure..."

"I was there today to get 2 tire changed. Fastest service ever and friendly staff. I also got my oil changed. Everyone was nice and welcoming. I let them know I was a new rider and they gave me so many good pointers and advice on how to handle the bike and how to look-out for my bike. I will definitely be coming back because you guys are not just a shop you guys are awesome funny people that are honest and care. If you ever need your tires or your oil change done and you are a new rider ( or everyone), this is the place you want to go. Also ask them about the ice lake story, I won't spoil it for you."

"Thank you for the fast service. The service was fast, helpful, friendly and inexpensive! They fixed the nail in my tire without an appointment or hassle. I was back on the road in 15 min! I look forward to doing some service here with them soon."

"I brought my bike and new tires there first thing in the morning. They pulled my bike straight in and had it on the lift before I even knew it . They did a fantastic job on my tire change and it was a pleasure to sit and shoot the crap with them while the work was getting done. Great place to go for service work on your ride."
- Rob G, Vancouver BC
"Excellent service, wouldn't give up till the problem solved, unlike the dealer. Reasonable cost. EMS'll be my service location of choice from now on."
- Stuart W, North Vancouver BC
"Absolutely first class service. Saved me hundreds of dollars on tires/install on my 2008 Road King. Ted's business model is all about ensuring repeat customers so he, Karly and Laura put forth the effort to ensure you are completely satisfied."

"Essential Motorcycle Services rocks like Metallica!"

"They were easy to find. I was in and out in a half hour with a full oil and filter change. The dealership I usually go with I had to make a two week advance appointment, and then I found you guys. Plus, you guys were considerably cheaper."

"Got my tires and oil changed while I had my morning coffee. They were efficient and professional."

"I enjoy there being woman mechanics on staff. It's nice to see young girls taking an interest in Motorcycles, and it gives the shop a more balanced atmosphere."
- Jody, Vancouver BC
"Good job on the tire change, see you soon."
- Carey T, Vancouver BC
"I've never seen a motorcycle service shop like this, great idea! I'll definitely be back, and I'll bring my wife and her Harley."
- Jon, Vancouver BC
"I could not find a better spot to get my bikes tires changed, Although it was Canada day... The crew at EMS changed my tires without making a appointment. I have recommended their service to many of my friends!. Thanks EMS!"
- Glenn, Gibsons BC
"Great place. Fast, good service, friendly, nice atmosphere. As one person said - you can sit a few feet away from your bike as it is being worked on and talk with the mechanic. Like it."
- Colin Lester, Richmond BC
"This is a shop that cares. They will bend over backwards to ensure that you leave happy no matter what it takes. Always a straight answer - no BS, no unnecessary upselling. You'd be hard pressed to find a finer shop in all of North America!"
- Colin M, Burnaby BC
