"From first discussion to riding away from the shop today Chris has been absolutely first class. You have got a customer for life and I look forward to having the bike serviced by your team and indeed purchasing my next bike from you."

"I live in Plymouth and travelled up to Watford today to pick up my new Vespa 300 GTS touring with free accessories and by far the cheapest price in the country. All the staff are very professional and are very helpful, I dealt with Daryl Bagg who again I couldn't fault explaining all aspects of the sale. I would recommend Motorcycles Direct to anyone thinking about buying a bike. Well worth the 12 hour round trip from Plymouth to secure such a competitive deal."

"Just happily returned home after my first visit to this shop. Great selection of bikes, clothing and accessories and helpful staff. Really helped me out with my bike and the workshop was able to see me the same day! Couldn't recommend enough. "

"Great service. They always help you out whatever the issue. Been servicing my bike here for few years now. No complaints so far. Keep you updated with the work being done. Patient and good at finding faults. Huge thanks to technicians, Andy and Jim for keeping my ER-6F alive. And Chris T for help buying it. As well, thanks to Ross and others at the gear shop upstairs. Safe, free and plenty of parking for two wheels in front of the shop. A short walk from bus stop, train station and High Street. Ride Safe!"

"Fantastic. I was getting the new Aprilia RS125 GP Replica, had a bit of trouble with the finance company due to me only just moving house, but the guys did their best and worked past closing time to make sure I got the bike that same night. Thanks again to Ross Harries, you're an absolute star. Absolutely recommend. Yet again, thanks guys, love my bike!"

"I purchased a J300 scooter, I've ridden all bikes my last motorcycle was a ZZR 1400 on an 07 plate but the last year I had it didn't use it. I upgraded from a 125 to the j300 and am so impressed. I rang one Saturday and spoke to Michael answered every question I needed to know, in fact couldn't ask for any more, if you want to get a bike give these guys a call, am always greeted with a smile and a coffee :)"

"Did a fantastic job on my 1200 Bandit. I had encountered ongoing clutch problems that numerous other bike shops could not fix. It is now running brilliantly. The customer services are excellent and a hire bike was provided free of charge whilst they awaited the parts."

"Brought a Gilera Runner 125 for my son. Been speaking to the sales team for months, they weren't pushing for sales simply advice me on products and offers. Thanks to a gentleman's (Daryl) calm and down to earth manner I brought one for my son (my son is happy) but most of all I am pleased I had spent my money with a lovely team of people. Thanks!"

"Just letting you know that I received my bike yesterday in mint showroom condition. The courier was a very polite and pleasant person and he also offered some very good security tips. Very pleased with the whole thing from the minute I e-mailed your company for details up until the bike being wheeled onto my drive. Also like to thank you for the way you have been so helpful and nothing has been to much trouble from start to finish."

"Bike arrived this morning as arranged at 9am. I had to work all day knowing it was waiting in the garage to go out. Finished at 5, and went out for a first ride, really happy, lovely bike. I’d like to thank you, you have been brilliant throughout the process, was a little nervous about buying over the internet and phone, but the service was excellent, clear and to the point, very efficient, and thank-you so much for following through."

He helped make the whole purchase process simple and efficient, I cannot over sell how good a job he has done. You have got a customer for life and I look forward to having the bike serviced by your team and indeed purchasing my next bike from you."

"I was looking to buy a new Kawasaki just over a year ago and after contacting several dealers I paid Lloyd Cooper a visit. I got a good feeling about the place as soon as I walked in, the staff were approachable and there was no pressure selling. The whole process from initial enquiry to collecting the bike was trouble free with excellent support throughout including a test ride on a slightly older version of the one I was going to buy. Since then I have had the bike serviced twice by Lloyd Cooper, again with the same high level of customer support. Being able to get the work carried out on a Saturday morning is a big plus point. I would recommend Lloyd Cooper to anyone who is looking for reliable customer support for sales and service."

"I wanted to give some feedback on my experience with Motorcycles Direct, and Chris Taplin. I thought the whole experience, from my initial inquiry all the way through to riding off on my new Vespa was great. Very helpful on the phone, a great price (plus free bundle - which I hadn't factored in), and on the day the paperwork was all very straightforward and the introduction to the bike all good. I’ll certainly recommend you in future, and come back for any equipment. Thanks again - and I'm really enjoying the bike."

"After a 13 year break from riding bikes my husband asked Lloyd Coopers to get my bike back on the road as a birthday surprise - a 'dirty' job considering how long it had sat still without even being turned over. Not only were they able to get it running again in an amazingly short space of time but it looked as beautiful and tempting as it did when I first got my leg over it! The technicians did an absolutely fabulous job, the bike runs like a dream and they kept it a secret till my birthday. Special thanks to Steve who delivered it with great panache (and apologies for mauling you in my excitement), and to Jim in the workshop who has been a real gent. It's been a long time since I was last in Lloyd Coopers with my Dad and Brother, both of whom swore by Lloyd Coopers. You're as impressive as ever - THANKS FOR GETTING ME BACK OUT THERE!!!!!!!!!"

"I honestly cannot recommend Lloyd Cooper enough, they will sit and listen to your biking needs, and its not all sales, in fact I never got a sales pitch at all... what I did get was sound advice and solid recommendations, they are genuinely into bikes and biking... not only that but you'll always get a cup of tea or coffee, plus... if it's just a chat you're after that's always on tap!"

"I always thought first services were a bit of a rip off, however, top notch service from Lloyd Cooper. Your colleagues changed my tank pad as promised, but what I was really pleased with was that without me asking, they'd noticed how my self fitted heated grip cable impeded the clutch lever, and they managed to twist round my heated grip, moving the cable completely clear of the lever. I really noticed the difference of how much smoother the clutch is, and am glad they noticed something I hadn't realised! The bike is riding great, seems smoother since the service (half the clutch/grip adjustment and half psychological). Really pleased with it!"

"Been back to biking for some six years now. Chris Ley in Sales has been hugely helpful, instructive and very flexible as I have progressed from a Honda Transalp to a Kawasaki ZZR. Jim Heal in the service department has sorted all services, accessory additions, MOTs, technical issues, maintenance tips, etc. with great humour ably assisted by John Beesley on some occasions. Ben and Lyndsey in the shop have willingly provided helmet refurbishment, thoughts on luggage variants, etc.....just a great team - knowledgeable, enthusiastic, professional, cannot praise them enough."

"5 out of 5 - A big shout out to Chris, many thanks for making my bike purchase such an easy and pleasant experience. The staff at Motorcycles Direct know their stuff, they are all happy to help and give great service. A good selection of bikes which are competitively priced. I'll be using again and would recommend to all."

"Friendly, knowledgeable, welcoming staff. Very competitive pricing even if you scour the web to source parts yourself. All service costs listed on their website, no surprises. Took the scooter out on the road for 30 minutes and I honestly can't remember it ever performing so smoothly especially throttle response. I will without doubt recommend this store to anyone who cares about their machine and wants to see it looked after. Also whilst looking for a larger bike whilst in store staff very open minded and knowledgeable, recommending not only their own products but praising various other machines from various other manufactures, NO HARD SELL, just honest enthusiastic bikers. A+++ With this level of service both for machine and customer I will definitely be using this store in future for purchases and servicing."

"Awesome motorcycle dealer and the only one I've found I can completely trust. I've serviced all my bikes here since I found them in 2006 and I get great service every time - great communication, they do what they say and always have a smile and a chat. Buying a new bike from them was a great experience - I got exactly what I asked for and they made the whole process easy. Cannot recommend them enough!"
