We pride ourselves on our high standard of customer service.
But don't just take our word for it, read our customer reviews below.
Stuart KirkThanks for all your help Joe and especially James that brought my new bike down in the evening and he still had one after me I will see you guys on the next service that if I don't buy another one of yourselves thanks again guys
Jim & Cathy HoneyWould recommend this company to everyone. They are truly honest and reliable people that deserve top stars for their work they do. If you want a trustworthy motorcycle shop this is the place to go, as they are far and few between.
Stuart MayesA massive thank you to joe for delivering the bike personally today. He has gone out of his way over Christmas (even going to check some things out on the bike for me Christmas Day itself ) . I hadn't even seen the bike until it was delivered today. It's an absolute blinder !! Joe had organised everything and weirdly at no point did I feel worried or nervous about the product being other than described ,even after I'd settled the balance . The only 'contact ' I'd with the bike had been via phone calls and emails . There were lots of high definition photos sent ,enough to persuade me that nothing was being hidden by joe and what I was buying was a quality machine .
I would recommend this guy highly. He's got a real passion for customer care and going that extra mile !!
Thank you Joe and Kelly
Michael HeathcoteJust received my sons new scooter and just wanted to thank you for the excellent service. Your delivery driver was very polite and was very helpful showing me round the bike.
I won't hesitate to recommend you to my friends and will return to you for my sons next bike.
Keith RaynerHighly recommended people to do business with. Put a deal together with Joe & Kelly for a Yamaha FZ1N last week. Joe delivered the bike to my address in Manchester today as promised. The battery failed on the bike so Joe drove off to a local dealer, purchased a new battery & returned to fit it. Bike was presented in A1 condition (battery issue resolved) & all paperwork present. Both Joe & Kelly were more than happy to discuss the transaction any time I called.
Just got back from a 20 mile trip to settle in with the bike, it did not disappoint.
A real pleasure doing business with you, really good to meet Joe in person.
Good luck guys & all my best for xmas & the new year.
Gil CarpetnerA1 service, spot on description of the bike, fairly priced, and amazing after care with the warranty. Since I purchased the versys 650 about 6 months ago I've covered 16,500 miles.......and not a whisper, does exactly what it said in the ad,"good commuter." Thanks again,apologise for the late review joe,but been busy putting miles on the clock. Cheers
David CHave just sold my bike to Joe at Ryder Automotive, couldn't have asked for more, fair price and friendly and easy transaction, from collection to payment, thanks Joe.
Ethan WrightAmazing Service, Me And My Dad Just Got A Z750R From Here And It Is Amazing, Team Is Just Amazing, Can't Recommend Them Enough. Will Definatly Look Here In A Few Years When I'm Looking For My First Bike.
Sean WrightI First was very nervous in talking to anyone about finance because I had a history after a messy divorce. I was 100% honest with Joe Ryder and he put me through one of the finance companies he uses. I didn't hold out much hope but I was surprised at being accepted and there were over £100 per month cheaper than an online finance company I tried. I can't recommend Joe and his family at Ryder Automotive any higher and I will not be buying any bike from any other dealership in the future. Even though Kelly Ryder picked on me loads. Lol ï¿½.
Thank you all so much and if I don't see you before have a fantastic Christmas and a very prosperous 2018.
Sam WigensFirst class, friendly service. From the initial phone call to the collection of the bike nothing was too much trouble. I'm a biking novice and was helped to choose a bike that suited me and given tips on a whole range of things from riding styles to security. I highly recommend Ryder Automotive and know where I'm going for my next bike without a doubt.
Nick MayoWhat a great family run business. The GTR I have had delivery today is a stunner, and goes like a train. Delivered to my home address, with no hassle at all. No high pressure sales, just bikes that speak for themselves. Also Kelly and Joe are great. Passionate about bike. And looked after the family whilst I was out test riding. Great service. Great bike. FIVE STAR COMPANY
Kieron FeaksVery good service. Very pleased with my purchase would definately recommend.
Anthony M TremainBrilliant service 100% trust worthy polite staff would highly recommend to other bikers looking to purchase new bike next year definitely going to be a returning customer
Alison DunnExcellent customer service from start to delivery to my door.
Stuart CaineBeen out properly on the gixxer 600 today. All i can say is wow.. loving the extras you fitted for me. Its transformed the bike into something very special. Was a pleasure doing business with you Joe, highly recommended from me, gave really sound advice and friendly service. Hope to see you at Brands in the new year
Clare AustinGave these guys a call to see if they would sell my bike for me. (To save me the hassle of tire kickers and stupid eBay questions!) They came all the way down to cornwall to pick it up free of charge and sold it for me for good money the next week. Highly recommend, really efficient, professional and friendly service.
Ron PalmerI would like to thank Kelly for all her hard work in securing the bike for me she made every thing so easy and enyone thinking of buying a bike they should visit this site
Simon BannisterWell what a pleasant experience that was!
Just purchased my very first big boys bike of choice (Triumph Street Triple 675) from Ryder Automotive and can honestly say the whole process was brilliant from start to finish!
A small family run business that gives you that personal touch.
My thanks to you Joe and also Jame's and Kelly, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
My best regards to you all
Andy BatesAfter much deliberation of what bike to buy, bought a bike from Joe and could not fault the process, answering all the questions I had and made it a streamlined process giving me confidence in my purchase. Will definitely purchase from Ryder automotive again
Ersin SinBought my first bike here. Didn't know what to get or look for or check on a bike. Friendly staff talked me through everything and sold me a bike with competitive price and warranty. What more would I want?. After sale care is as good as pre sale so they are not there just for the money.
Steve Brooksjust bought a gsr750 from the best company in the world, not pushed into making a choice, very friendly and helpful, service was fantastic and have recommended them to friends. Will definitely be purchasing another bike from then when it\'s time for a change. Thanks guys, superb !!
Jake GibbonsGreat shop and very friendly, worth the travel
Ata"Although I did not purchase the bike I went to see, I certainly would not hesitate to buy a bike..."
Philip Gildeabought a bike from the best dealer I\'ve done business with .joe is without doubt a bike fan through and through, to me that says it all . From finally picking my bike to having it delivered to me on a sunny evening in Kent the process was seamless, all bikes at the shop are in perfect condition you just want to buy them all .. I for one will come back too this great dealer and purchase again in the future , for anyone else I say wherever you are you will be looked after , thanks joe and staff.
Martin HoughtonI have bought a few bikes in my time. But I have never had such a pleasant, trustworthy purchase as this one with Joe and his staff at Ryder Automotive. The word is care. These guys care. They care about their bikes and they care about you. At no time of this fab process did I ever doubt what I was being told. I bought the bike from a distance so it was important to trust. And I did from the word go. The bike has arrived today, I have just had my first rideout . It is beautiful and I love it!! Thank you again Joe and Ryder. Highly recommended.
Jon BucklandExcellent customer service, been a year and the bike is as good today as when I brought it. Would highly recommend buying here.
Lucy ImerajVery happy with purchase and outstanding customer service. Highly recommended.
Martin KaneBeing vertically challenged,at 5' 2" and short inside leg.thought i would never be able to ride a supersports bike.but found that the suzuki gsxr had the lowest seat height.so had my heart set on a gsxr 750 , sat on a few on my journey for my dream bike. but never felt quite comfortable,or confident,but never give up the dream.
Eventually see the perfect bike at Ryder Automotive (suzuki gsxr 750).
Money in hand and a willing to acquire my dream bike.
First contact was Kelly the most friendly & helpful person you will probably encounter on the phone.And then Joe , who let me get a feel for the gsxr 750.
But noticing my slight lack of confidence,gave me an honest opinion that the bike was slightly to large for me. And wanting for me to go away with my dream and not a wrong decision. Helpfully suggested the 600 gsxr , which made my dream come true.
So if you want a great personal service go to Ryder Automotive.
A very big thanks Kelly & joe
Colin NorrisI would just like to say I bought a gsxr of Ryder automotive found a oil leak on the bike which was only slightly leaking and they come and picked the bike up fixed the leak and also replaced the front tyre as it was worn so would like to thank them for this and I reckoned anyone to buy off these people can't fault them cheers

Simon OxleyWhat can I say apart from the fact that Joe and Kelly were thoroughly professional and lovely people as well. Test rode the bike one weekend and then picked it up the next. Love the bike guys and after leaving you went for a ride and got home at 8pm. Would recommend Ryder Automotive to anyone looking for a bike. 5* Service.

John ClementsHi Kelly,
I thought it would be good to let you know how pleased I am with the bike. It was a very pleasant experience buying the ZZR. I do miss the GTR but I am so happy with the ZZR. It is a supper bike and this one is so like new. You looked after me and I feel that you dealt with me in such a pleasant way, the word professional comes to mind. Both you, your son and other half were so good. Remind your husband how lucky he is to have such a lovely woman as his wife.
Kieran LawJoe and Kelly Ryder were awesome the transition from 125cc to 600cc was easy and well organised.
Thanks guys for making me a very happy rider!!

AJ MillerBought a gsr750 from here a week ago... the staff are family run and the service is great! They dont push their sales on to you and are really helpful! Would highly recommend!
Mark BarnesI recently, whilst searching for my next bike, came across Joe and Ryder Automotive. Never did i encounter such an establishment that was so helpful and communicative throughout the whole process - even to the point of a follow up telephone call and email to make sure i was happy with my purchase. Obvs i didnt take the call as i was out and about enjoying my new toy :-) The whole process was completed in less than a week from my first show of interest to the punctual delivery 300 miles away. I was happy with what i thought i was buying but when it arrived it far exheeded expectations. Delivery arrived in a smart professional van with the friendliest driver!!! Nothing more to say... Bravo!!
Gregory HermitteNever got a chance to comment : thanks a lot to both of you for your flexibility and great customer service. the journey back to irleand was an adventure but i made it...and i love my street triple !!!
Nick JJoe and his family are some of the nicest people I've met, they are straight down the middle and are upfront about everything. Very knowledgeable about bikes and really helped me out with trading my old bike in and put together a very competitive deal when other dealers in the area were not as interested in making the Sale, Joe came through immediately and was even working on the deal with me at 8pm at night. They really do go the extra mile here and their premises are immaculate and clean just like their bikes. I would recommend these over any other dealers in the area as they are polite, friendly and most of all helpful. I would definitely recommend them and I will be coming back to them again to add to my collection!
Michael JohnsonI've just had my new bike delivered from Ryder automotive and I couldn't be happier with it, a specially as I'd only seen it in picture.. Joe was very helpful throughout and can't thank him enough.. 100% recommend Ryder automotive to anyone. Thanks again Joe.
Mike TownerHi Joe, I hope you are all well. I just wanted to say a big thank you for your excellent customer service and providing me with a fantastic buyer experience. We all live in a world where it is far easier to complain and don't always give credit where it is really deserved so I just wanted to say thanks to you all.
It goes without saying that I will recommend you to as many people as I can. If you ever need a recommendation then give out my number.
I wish you all the best in your new building and new start.
Brett HolmesSo Joe came all the way to Skegness to test ride my pride and joy. Although i was nervous he did everything he could to chill me out including trusting me with his van keys. This was by far the most seamless transaction ive ever encountered. Thank you so much Joe and Ryder Automotive. I will certainly be visiting when i need another bike. Thanks
Antony CrosbyThese guys are really helpful and got me through the process of getting my bike without any hassle. I would recommend Ryder Automotive to anyone.
Joey PatrickI went to Ryder Automotive with specific requirements for what I wanted for my new bike. Joe was fantastic, he talked me through the whole process and was exceptionally helpful answering all questions. Wide range of bikes there with a lot to sit on to see which suited me and when it came to talking about my new bike they were so flexible in the 'perks' I could get included in the price on top of free delivery. I'm absolutely thrilled with my new bike, it was exactly what I was looking for and it's my new pride and joy! Bike was delivered today in the timescale that suited me in immaculate condition having clearly been valeted, faultless service, Thank you Ryder! One last thing... it as fantastic to talk to and deal with a dealer who was clearly passionate about bikes and a huge enthusiast and wasn't simply looking for a quick sale!

Richard BullimoreRyder Automotive have now supplied me with a cbr125 for my son a cf125 for my daughter and now a fantastic vl1500 for myself.

Midgie ManBought my ER6F about a week ago, it's perfect, bike was been clean and service was amazing, definitely recommend!
Antonio ValSo I rode to Joe's shop one day proudly on my CBF600 to test a GSXR-750. We went out for 20-30 minutes - the route had a bit of everything, bends, dual carriageway and traffic. Joe was very thorough throughout and the GSXR was well looked after. He even threw in a 12 month warrantee to sweeten the deal. And to top it up he stored my CBF for a couple of days cause I couldn't just not take the GSXR straight home with me. When I returned to pick up my bike, Joe's wife gave me a lift from the station made me a cuppa and showed me to my bike which incidentally looked as good as new cause Joe Ryder junior had scrubbed it down pretty viciously. It's so nice to see a family business being run with such tremendous level of service. Thank you Ryders! 5 Stars.
Colin Broadythe people at Ryder Automotive were brilliant Nothing was to much trouble. they were very ken to make buying the bike a real pleasure. Would Highly Recomend
Lindsey BullimoreBoth my brother and I have purchased a bike from Joe and Kelly and we both walked away really pleased!

They were all very friendly and joe was extremely helpful, he went above and beyond to get me the best deal and the best bike for my needs. I was completely blown away by the service and recommend them to everyone!

Andy SavillWent to Ryder Automotive to look at a lovely VFR800 v-tec, after a long test-ride I was unsure whether the VFR was infact the ideal bike for me, Joe took the time to educate me on the virtues of other touring bikes id never considered, I feel he's very conscientious and honest and looks after his customers - nothing was too much trouble for him. I look forward to doing business with Ryder Automotive in the future and would recommend them to any fellow biker.
Bob LomasExcellent service provided by Joe - picked up my bike, got it into a saleable condition and then did all the leg work so it sold very quickly and I got what I wanted and the bike found a new home!
