Ducati Bellevue vs Seattle

Any opinions on which one you would take your bike to get serviced? Or rather which one to stay away from?

I Ride: 1199 Tricolore (of DOOM)
I've had better experiences at DucSea. But my time at DucBell is VERY limited.

Thanks Panny. The guys at Seattle seem easier to work with and are more accommodating. They're actually willing to come pick up my bike in Tacoma and deliver it when its done. Just curious about other's experiences.

Duc bell will get your bike and deliver it to, personally I bought my bike form duc sea and was treated like crap after I purchased it, I went back 4 days after I bought the bike to look at some new gear and one of the sales guy who sold me the bike asked if I was going to buy anything, when I said I was looking around he then told me if I wasn't going to buy then I should leave. The same guy I bought the bike from 4 days earlier. I won't go back I will only deal with duc bell I've been happier with them, but that's just me.
Thanks from bronch

I am very surprised to hear about Kevin's negative experience with Ducati Seattle, all the employees there have treated me very well. Ducati Seattle has been very helpful and outgoing in every aspect. I have not done business with Ducati Bellevue but they seem to be good people as well.

I've now dealt with both and have been treated fairly well. DucSea actually offered to come get my bike for service and it was presented as some sort of favor by DucBell. An imprtant service to me since it's difficult for me to get up there and back if I have to leave my bike for service. Overall, nothing bad to say, certainly I wasn't "king of the mountain" anymore after buying my bikes from DucBell, but I was never treated badly... Sorry, you were treated badly, that's BS.

It could have been an off day or something, I'm sure ill pop in again at some point just left kinda pi$$ed and decided to stay away for awhile. On a funny note when I bought mine one of the sales guys at duc sea told me there was never going to be a 1199R, I laughed and tried to make a bet but he wouldn't, I so want to go back and ask him about the bike that should have never been made, lol

I Ride: '13 S ABS in the correct colour
Anyone know what they are charging for the 12,000km (7500mi?) service? I've heard that service is much cheaper down there, so when it comes time I'll hop over the border and get it done at either of these two.

I've been to motocorsa twice and worked with them over the phone and have been nothing but impressed by them, I would recommend them
