I'm happy to become a sponsor here on Two Wheeled Texans.
I've known Tourmeister / Scott for about 9 years now and really respect what he's done with this site, and want to thank him for the opportunity to become a sponsor.:rider:

A little about us; I've been working on and racing bikes for over 35 years. About 10 years ago I felt that I could provide a service as a shop that was better than some of the ones that were local at the time. Over that time we've grown because of our work ethic and integrity.
We're a medium sized shop with 4 full time techs, and a good amount of gear, parts and accessories in stock. We are very experienced in fitting people properly into gear, and if we don't have an item in stock we can usually get it in 1-3 business days. If we measure you, we guarantee fit.

On the service end of things my techs are certified in the big 4 Japanese mfr's., as well as Ducati and Harley Davidson.
We are very experienced in all areas of repair and modifications and are a Certified Race Tech Service Center. We also have extensive experience with Ohlins, Penske and Traxxion.
We are very detailed in our work and provide a level of customer service that we are very proud of.

If you have any questions or there is anything we can do for you, please contact me via PM on here, or if you need a faster response, call the shop @ 281 444 0545 and ask for myself or Luke.

Patrick has sold a handfull of bikes for me (always netting me more than my asking price, after I gave up selling on my own), wrenched on a few, sold me parts and gear, given advice, and he knows more about bikes then most of us can dream of. He is also probably the farthest store in Houston from my house, if that says anything. Patrick charges fair and appropriate prices for his services, but he is always willing to lend a helping hand, give free good solid troubleshooting advice, and even throw a tech session every once in a while for a specific to a genre of bikes..noob maintenance, track prep for first timers, tire tech...

I can probably name 100 people who will only take their bike to him. His techs are top notch, knowledgeable from a riding, wrenching, and racing perspective. They turn out top notch motards, street, race, and custom projects. The shop is kept incredibly clean, up to date, and his gear pricing is not far off from online prices.

Welcome to the forum Patrick. Get ready for some KLR's, KTM's, and big old horizontal twins to come in the door shortly:thumb:

I can also testify that Patrick's basic maintenance class is both very informative and entertaining at the same time. Well worth the drive from Katy up to his place.

While I was there taking the class I saw first hand the sort of guy he is. A young kid (everyone under 40 is a kid to me!!) brought his bike in for an inspection, but there was no way his front tire would pass. Patrick asked his mechanic to see if they had any takeoffs that they could put on the bike to get him back legal and save him a bit of cash.

That reminds me I need to go visit him for a couple of new tires !!

I can't say enough about Patrick and his shop. He took my "bike in a box" Concours and thrashed on it to the point that when I flew back to Houston all I had to do was load it in the U-Haul, haul it out here, unload it, and go riding without any worries. Superb service.

Motorcycles Unlimited get all my business. Owning a Honda Blackbird :trust: somewhat limits what business I have, but the few times I've been to MU, I have always got top results at a fair price.

I had abused two of my bikes a bit too much (broken blinkers, worn out brakes, and much more). Patrick had both bikes back in great running order in no time at all and at a reasonable price. They also custom fabricated brackets to mount new LED running lights to one of the bikes.

I may be mechanically challenged but have finally found a place for repairs that are over my head.

Thanks Patrick and Crew!!!!!!

Had a "chance" to visit M.U. today after noticing the threads showing in my rear tire... I had new tires at home and needed them mounted, called them to make sure they could work on my wheels...

Well in about the time it took me to get a hamburger, I got a call to come back; but what strikes me is not the prompt service, but how reasonable the charge was.

This is my second set of tires mounted there, I highly recommend Patrick' shop.

having Patrick install the RaceTech front fork upgrade in my 2008 Goldwing. Have heard good things about MU and RaceTech. Can't wait to get it back and check it out.

Just another happy customer...PR4s were purchased and installed at MU while I waited for my Bandit. They did a great job and the bike feels so much better than it did with the OEM tires.

I'll be back...........:clap:

Well, smack me :doh:

:tab A few months ago I dropped off a set of Ohlins shocks for my 1200 GS to have them rebuilt. The back was harsh and the front had leaked all over the place. Patrick got them done quickly and for a very reasonable price. I forgot to come back here and mention that :oops: I got them back on the bike just in time to head out for an 1800 mile dual sport trip through Utah and Colorado. The difference after the rebuild was amazing! I did not realize how bad they had become. We rode through some pretty rough stuff. I was loaded down with all three hard bags and a passenger and the bike handled it great!

Thanks Patrick! :thumb:

More praise for Patrick and Motorcycles Unlimited. So a couple of weeks ago I was on my way to Dallas to the Motorcycle show when between Hearne and Calvert , I was intercepted by 2 pit bulls. I hit one square on with the front wheel as the other one went under the back wheel. I was concerned that the impact may have tweaked the front end as there was some fairing damage. Since MU had done the RaceTech upgrade a few months ago, I took it back to them for inspection. They did a complete inspection of the bike including checking all measurements and two techs test riding it. All for less than what I paid for breakfast this morning. More than fair. Thanks for the peace of mind MU. I have recommended you before and will confidently do so again.
