Big thank you to Connor, who did a great job washing, degreasing, foaming, drying, then Acf50ing my Kawasaki Versys today. kept me informed on different choices of services available. coffee was nice also. will definitely use his services again.

Connor really loves his work - rolling up his sleeves and teasing out all the dirt and filth in the hidden away nooks and crannies of dirty bikes. He took my filthy bike and happily got stuck in and delivered back to me a shiny, sparkly machine ...with the added bonus of it being fully protected over winter with an XCP treatment. I'll be going back in the Spring after all the Winter riding, to get it back into showroom condition for the coming Summer - Can't recommend Connor enough.

My Honda NC750X commuter bike has done 107,000 miles in five years, and looks like crap most of the time.
Once a year I have it valeted and treated with ACF50 to protect it.
Connor Shipway in Burgess Hill did a terrific job, leaving it looking about as close to new as possible, given that before he started there was enough crud around the back wheel to plant potatoes in.
Connor was polite, helpful and professional.
It’s £70 very well spent. Highly recommended.

I’ll admit I was a little sceptical. After all, we can all clean a bike. I was wrong.
What was evident from the moment I turned up and met Connor Shipway, was how enthusiastic, professional and customer focused he was.
I opted to wander into town and got back half an hour before the bike was finished. To be fair, I hadn’t made it easy, a month and 2000 miles of wet weather riding grime to be removed.

Wow!! The bike looked fantastic. Far better than when I picked it up from the dealer a couple of years ago! Great deep clean, wonderful attention to detail, ACF 50 applied as per expectation.

This isn’t just a clean and application as far as Connor is concerned. He loves his work and it shows. I’d recommend him and the All Year Biker process to everyone out there.

I took my R1200GS to Connor Shipway yesterday for an ACF 50 treatment. I have applied this product to my bike myself in the past but was completely blown away by the results achieved when the job is carried out by a trained, professional. The process is very labour intensive and, like decorating a house, the key to an immaculate finish is in the preparation. Connor talked me through each stage of the treatment and his attention to detail was amazing. If you want to protect your bike, this is definitely the way to go. My 2013 bike now looks better than new! Thanks again for a terrific job. Chris

Although I usually keep my bike pretty clean and ACF-50 it once a year myself, I thought it time to bring in a pro. Connor has done a great job cleaning and treating the bike. It looks great and is now covered for a good few months of commuting. Would definitely recommend Connor to others.

I booked my £70 clean and ACF50 treatment for my Honda CBC1000 directly with X (name withheld by me) at Chesham. My bike was in good clean condition, but I wanted it to look as new as possible for its age as per MCN’s review. What a let down. Sadly I didn’t stay to watch the cleaning process, but on returning 90 mins later X had already finished and was nowhere to be seen; (so much for it taking 2-2.5 hrs!). The bike looked just as if I’d done the cleaning with my usual hosepipe, bucket and sponge. The moulded alloy spokes had bits of dirt still in some of the corners, the side panel had a small dirty patch that had obviously been missed (just like when I’m cleaning my car- you can miss a bit when only using a sponge). Worst of all, there was a huge bug splatter still on the headlamp surround, and the tops of the brake callipers were just as dirty as when it started. X muttered something about not getting stuff near the brakes. (As if I didn’t know that this is true about ACF50, but not about soap!!). All this took place in the Red Lion car park in Chesham town centre. I saw no evidence of the final jet foam cleaner or vast amounts of water in the surrounding (non drained) car park tarmac. Of course this in no proof of anything, but the key lack of a deep clean is damning. Rightly or wrongly, this whole experience left me feeling totally ripped off, with my bike looking no better than having been sponged clean by me. I honestly cannot recommend this particular franchise in Chesham.

Took mine and my sons bike to Alan Grace who did an excellent thorough job on both, the bikes looked great afterwards and are now protected for winter, great coffee and bacon roll too, Alan knows what he’s doing and is a 100% biker too so certainly knows how to treat the bikes to great effect, thoroughly recommended 👍

I contacted all year biker because of the great reviews. Whilst I could do this treatment myself, I just wanted the peace of mind of someone else doing it right. I’m about an hour from Hereford but Gab Pilloni was the closest to me and decided to go ahead. Great service, offered me a coffee and let me watch the whole process (mostly for my own interest). Was incredibly thorough and did a great job, explaining it all too me as he went. As well as lots of talk about bikes and riding. Great bloke, great job and would recommend to anyone.

I had my Tracer 900 treated by Gab in Hereford. Gab wasn’t my nearest option but he works on weekends which was my preferred treatment option so I was prepared to travel to him.

We had communicated via email to book and when I arrived on the Saturday morning for my appointment, Gab was on the drive ready with all the equipment prepared.

A nice cuppa and quick chat and Gab started work. He talked me through it all so I just sat, watched and relaxed!! Gab is clearly a bike enthusiast and treated my bike like it was his own although he doesn’t like Yamaha’s choice of blue wheels!! An hour and half later, the bike had been rinsed, foamed, washed, dried and treated with the XCP rust blocker. I was then ready for my two hour ride home in which we got soaking wet and filthy but not rusty!!

I’ll be back next year and highly recommend Gab.

Thanks

Joel did a great job of cleaning and treating the bike while I waited. Bike looks in showroom condition. Will definitely be back next year.

Came across this service almost by chance. But Josh is a top guy did a great job, the bike is gleaming and I now know its protected from the elements as much as it can be riding through winter. He gave me some tips on how to keep it in good condition/reduce the impact the weather has on the bike. Made a good cup of tea and even got a couple of biscuits while I waited and we chatted. Would definitely recommend.

Having never used this service or Acf50 before I wasn’t sure what to expect. I was put in contact with Andy at Hinckley who clearly has a passion for bikes, his job and making sure your own bike gets the full VIP service. After a thorough degrease, clean and Acf50 application the bike looks like it’s just come out of the showroom. Andy takes you through each stage of the process using his expert knowledge and gives you advise on how to look after the new application to make it last longer. I can’t recomend this service and Andy enough. Thank you

Just do it! In 90 mins my bike got a proper showroom clean along with the rust protection treatment created for the USAF. Thanks to Steve Brinkley for his hard work, my bike has never looked better!

Steve Carr cleaned and applied XCP rust blocker to my CB500X today, he did a great job and was very meticulous. I would highly recommend Steve and All year biker services if you ride year round and want to protect your bike.

Had my new Yamaha Tracer 900 GT treated by Howard at Haywards Heath. Howard was extremely knowledgeable and personable. He gave me great advice on which treatment to go for based on my use case (XCP rust blocker in my case), he also gave me great advice on aftercare and motorbike cleaning in general. He was very detail orientated and took great care of my pride and joy. The treatment itself is very thorough and I have high hopes that when I go back next year for my next treatment the bike will still be gleaming.

Just had my FZ8 treated by Gab in Hereford. Excellent service bike looks stunning, Gab is a real nice guy & passionate about doing the treatment to the highest standard. This is my first time with all year biker but it definitely won't be my last. Cheers Gab.

I can’t recommend this service highly enough. Barrie did the most thorough and careful clean, followed by the ACF-50 treatment using a spray gun - so much better than the DIY option. The bike looks fantastic.

Booked a visit from Steve Carr. He arrived at the appointed time and went through the cleaning process very thoroughly. He explained each step as he was doing it. After the cleaning he dried the bike thoroughly before preparing the bike for the ACF 50 application. After applying the surplus carefully wiped away. The end result is fantastic. Now I have to convince myself to ride the bike - It looks so good I don't want to get it dirty again!

Can't praise Steve too highly. Professional and very organised. I will be using his services again.
