Labor Rate Review
What does it cost you to maintain your motorcycle? What is the range of shop rates in your area?
Do you look for the best deal for your service? Do you take your motorcycle to a service facility because you have a high level on confidence with the quality of their work? Do you take it somewhere just because it is convenient regardless of price and quality?
My guesstimate for the basic maintenance for each of my Ducatis is around 25 cents per mile (not including tires, fuel, depreciation). The current shop rate for my local Ducati dealership is $95/hour and I'm sure there are also flatrate fees for certain maintenance procedures.
Genetics loads the gun - the environment pulls the trigger.
