    Does anyone have a favorite Honda dealership in Atlanta? I don't have much experience with dealers, since car parts are usually available elsewhere, and bike parts I've always gotten online. I need to change my fork seals, and I'm thinking this weekend may be the time to do it. (Okay, what I need to do is clean the carbs, but that's a different story). Thanks in advance for your opinions.

    Lawrenceville Honda and Yamaha. Hands down best dealer around. One of the parts guys is a silverwing fan. One of the salesman (least awhile back) sold them way back in the day. Great bunch of people there.
    Just say no to skin graphs. Wear your gear.

    Agreed.

    That would be Brian. I've known him for many years. Great guy.



    But there's a very good chance they will have to order the parts as most dealers generally cannot afford to stock parts for older bikes such as ours. Since they are located well outside the perimeter, it would be wise to call first.

    I called them, but they didn't have the fork seals. I'll have to make a trip out there and check them out sometime, though. Any secondary recommendations?

    That sounds like a worthwhile task to take on if you cannot get fork seals. You can use my ultrasonic cleaner if you wish.

    Mike's Honda in Menasha, WI is my favorite. My local dealer is the oldest dealer in WI and will help hunt down any part nationwide if it is NLA. I am happy to pay the little bit extra to keep this dealer above water.

    I agree with Lawrenceville Honda, have bought two scooters from them and Parts for scooters and two 81 gl500s all positive experiences.
