Silicon Valley mechanics?

A friend of mine rides a DR-Z400 SM and she's looking for a mechanic to do routine work in the Mountain View area (valves, swing arm, etc.)

Do you guys have any recommendations in that area? I see Fastline Cycles has yelp-cred...

I've always done my own wrenching, or gotten Motophoto to do it for me :-P. I know the guys at Grand Prix in Santa Clara (El Camino just east of San Tomas) have been helpful with parts and questions. Santa Clara Cycle Accessories in Sunnyvale has done my tires for me (free mount if you bring in the wheel) and have always been cool (El Camino between Wolfe and Lawrence).

Or just have her invite over a few KLR guys and offer beer and food and we can eff things up on her bike for her.

Cool, I'll pass those on.

Ha! Well, with an offer like that, how could she refuse?
