Experiences with SF Moto? (MZ Skorpion)

Discussion in 'Bay Area Bikers' started by Michael K. Ellis, Jul 15, 2004.

  1. I've managed to get a very good deal on an '02 MZ Skorpion Tour
    that's basically new. I'm new to riding (just finished the MSF
    course this past weekend), and it's been described as a very good
    first bike by several people I've talked with, which is reassuring.
    However, the bike is being shipped in from out of state (Colorado).

    I'm thinking about having it shipped to SF Moto, which is an MZ
    shop (http://sfmoto.com), to adjust the carbs for sea level and
    generally make sure it survived shipping intact. They've quoted me
    a few hundred dollars for the prep, which seems fairly reasonable
    (assuming nothing broke in transit that needs fixing).

    Anyone have any experience with SF Moto, for good or for ill?
    Or suggestions for another place that would be likely to be able
    to handle a Skorpion, preferably in the East Bay?

    (If it gets shipped to SF, I'm going to have a friend ride it
    back over the bridge, since I am not going to have my first ride
    on the thing be a combination of SF and the Bay Bridge.)

    I haven't had any experiences with SF Moto, but I bought a MZ Skorpion
    Tour from Scuderia West (San Francisco) back in 2000 - a great starter
    bike, plus Scuderia looked after me well - bike servicing, etc. They
    used to be a MZ dealer and still sell some MZ's - last time I was in
