I first started using Darren and Mobile Cycles three years ago when I moved here. I have two 1980s vintage Yamaha XS850s, and had a lot of problems with them til I called him. I needed somebody to come to the house because the bikes wouldn't run and I don't have a trailer. Since then Darren has fixed numerous problem. Some of the problems I didn't even know I had, and some I created myself, like a brake caliper I put in wrong! Darren does it all for a great price and free tips and lessons on motorcycle mechanics to boot. I recommend him to all my friends. James - North County

I just moved to San Diego from Chicago, this week! Loving the weather and ready to ride my motorcycle, the problem is it wouldn't turn over. Tried to jump it to no avail. Called a few shops only to get disingenuous responses. When I got through to Mobile Cycles, Darren found me a slot that worked with my schedule. He showed up and step by step diagnosed the problem to the carbs and fixed my bike all while showing me what goes where. In two (reasonably priced) hours with Darren, I learned more about the inside of my bike than I did in 5 years of riding and services. Darren is a champ and I'd recommend him to anybody who asked!

Darren showed up about 10min early and got right to work on my Honda VTX. I was having carb problems and he had them torn down and cleaned in about an hour and even took the time to show me some things I should be aware of. I have nothing but high praise for him and his work.

He does OK work for a good rate. Arrives on time. He has very weak people skills and can be intimidating. Darren does OK work but he is much more concerned about his bottom line than customers' satisfaction.

Had Darren do a valve adjustment on my 2003 KTM 450 EXC. Although he estimated 1 hour, with all the dis-assembly required it ran into 1 hour and 35 minutes. He only charged me the first hour. Bike ran great after that.

This bike is fantastic! Just purchased a 1989 Yamaha Riva 200Z from Mobile Cycles. Owner is honest, knowledgable and up-front! Would recommend to anyone looking for a motorcycle/scooter mechanic.
