Question Desert Motorsports

Has anyone had any experience with Desert Motorsports?

I visited their shop in N. Scottsdale / airpark, and they seemed like a stand-up operation.
I am new to the area and am needing some qualified opinions


Any feedback would be great.

They will stick you with Freight & Set-up and do everything they can to come up with "problems" that need to get fixed on your trade...I'd recommend checking out Apache Kawasacki/Honda/Yamaha/Suzuki...either that or Kelly's Kawasacki...

Just my opinion, but I'm not a Motorsports group fan (Desert is better than Town & Country from what I've heard).

Desert, Town & Country, and Metro motorsports are all owned by the Arizona Motorsports group. They all SUCK. If you want to buy a bike from one of them, expect to be without your bike for extended periods of time. 2 weeks for a tuneup is not uncommon with them. I would say go to YSA, Kelly's, Dirt & street, or Az Powersports. While they may not be MUCH better, its got to be better then someone from the Arizona Motorsports group. Either that, or buy a used bike, thats already past the "Lemon" stage.

Thumbs up

The only guy worth dealing with at Desert Motorsports is Pascal in parts. He's my homie. I swear, I'll have him racing that gixxer by next season. He'll spend one season as amatuer, get his 800 measley points, move to expert, and then he'll get his AMA license. He said he really doesn't want to do that, but I think I can talk him into it.

Stand up guy? NOT

Before Pascal has dreams about putting his GSXR back together, he should finish paying the guy he bought the bike from. He's been dogging the kid since January.
Sounds like a real stand up guy to me.

I'm not disputing you or covering for Pascal. I didn't know he owed anyone money.
