They gave me a good price on my old
bike, and the new one was well priced as well
So Thanks guys. 😁

Can't say enough about the great customer service you receive at Ryder. Joe's knowledge helped me in purchasing the right bike for myself collected the bike today and looked amazing rides really nice would, recommend any one who is after purchasing a bike to go to see them.
Eddie Scaryman
My experience with Ryder Automotive has been really good, in fact I couldn't ask for anymore from them!
I bought my latest bike from them with a number of modifications I wanted done.
The guys quickly set about getting the bike how I wanted it, everything was done in a timely fashion except the rear sets, there seemed to be an issue with the supply into the country. The guys at Ryder Automotive were supportive throughout this time and they sourced an alternative for me in quite a quick time.
During my dealings with them, I've found them to be honest and they are big on putting their customers requirements first, even after I had bought my bike.
They are knowledgeable and helpful and I'd happily go back.
Rob Godden
Big thanks to Joe and Kelly
I purchased my bike before passing my test and they offered to keep it at the shop for me until I passed my test, The service I received was undoubtedly worth a 5* rating, you will definitely have my business in the future and I would certainly recommend to family and friends,
Keep up the good work guys

Nigel Griva
Hugely enjoyable way of parting with my hard earned , the staff cannot do enough for you , the personal touch is everything with Ryder Automotive they listen to your needs and point you in the right direction from buying a bike to clothing and accessories. I have bought many bikes in my time but this is by far the best experience I've had , I would recommend Ryder automotive to anyone without any reservations , well done Joe , Kelly and James
Iain Moss
Very friendly very helpful recommend and definitely would go back
I'd like to thank Joe for his patience, listening and understanding me as a customer and few bits added and fitted prior to bike collection. First time dealing with them as they were recommended by mate of mine and reviews here. Communication was very professional even over the phone. Also been to workshop and mechanic is nice and chatty bloke. Looking at him working on another bike gave me confidence and will be switching for service to Ryder from now on. Nice bike, prepared to very high spec and detailed like out of factory. Thank you very much Joe.
Joe Gabriele

K Russell
Just picked up my bike from Ryders Automotive. They were totally brilliant throughout the delivery process. Found the bike on autotrader and asked for a test ride... no problem... liked the bike and it came with new mot and full service (and in this case new tyres as it was an older machine). The guys there could not do enough for me and all with a genuine smile... they give you all the time you need, answer all questions you have, The one issue we had was an inability to tax the bike because it was an old one and the V5 number didn't have enough digits... me wondering how I could sort it and Kelly jumped in her car off to the post office and taxed it for me.... that is top notch service. All the bikes in their showroom were immaculate. My only problem with them is that they are not close enough to me for routine stuff. They stock riding gear and helmets as well as other accessories and offer discounts for people who buy a bike from them. Need a few more dealers like this!
Jon Buckland
Second bike from Ryder Automotive and as always excellent service from Joe and the family, loved the range of accessories that lightened the wallet on picking up my fully serviced and fresh MOT'd bike and looking forward to years of riding. I might even join you for one of your tours in the near future. I would recommend Ryder Automotive to my friends and if I need any parts, spares or just improvements to my bike I'll give you a bell. Thanks again Joe and family will definitely be back again for another bike when the urge arises again.
Mike Jones
Long overdue review "¦"¦sorry it's taken me so long guys! This company is fantastic. If you're looking for something then give Ryder Automotive a call. Actually bought my bike from them Dec last year. That's when their brilliant customer service was obvious. I had a problem with the data tool alarm in spring time. Bike was outside of warranty and alarm wasn't technically covered anyway I don't think. BUT spoke to Joe and that's when their brilliant customer service was tested. And they were absolutely brilliant:-) In Joe's words, "˜don't worry about the warranty. You have a bike I sold you and you can't ride it. We will sort it.' He was brilliant in that respect. No quibble. Turned out the data tool alarm model was on recall. Which was what Joe suspected. BUT Ryder still collected the bike, fixed it and returned it all at their time and expense. Can't get fairer than that. They turned it round in about 5 days and kept me informed the whole time. They turned up exactly on time to collect it when they said they would and when delivering it back. How often does that usually happen hey. Top marks. I'd have no hesitation to recommend these guys as first place to look and speak to for motorcycles or anything else they sell.
Neil Kerby
Had a new rear tyre fitted yesterday. What can I say great service, friendly people. Will deffo be using again and can highly recommend them.
Thanks again.
John Pinder
superb service from everyone at Ryders. Done a fantastic job on my daytona and it rides better than ever. I thoroughly recommend them for all your riding needs.
Dan Miller
I have been using Ryder Automotive for the last two years now. I can't express how helpful and knowledgable Joe and the team are. I find them to be competitively priced and their products are of a good quality. The team also arrange for biking trips to various European countries. I have been on a few and I have thoroughly enjoyed myself. I cannot wait to go on the next ones happening shortly.
Stuart Piper
I did one of these trips last year, shortly after passing my test,(actually about 5 weeks after!!) and was way out of my comfort zone. But rest assured, it was amazing. So well planned, nothing is rushed, no one is left out, and everyone made to feel welcome regardless of what you ride or how you ride. Inspired me to have the confidence to go across to the continent on my own. If your on the fence thinking should I go, trust me, once you hit the roads over there, you'll be asking why you hadn't done it sooner. Best money I ever spent.
Terry White
Just wanna say to anyone looking you can buy with the up most confidence from these guys I've bought two bikes from them now and they can't do enough for you. The bikes are generally pretty much mint and the customer service is second to none. Still loving my bike as I did the last one and looking forward to doing some of the day trips that joe does too. 👌
Phil Cantrell
nice shop, great staff and a good selection of bikes and clothing. very informative and helpful and kept in touch every step of the way with the sale. thanks team.
Christine Roughie Hawkins
Really helpful, so friendly even tho I was not buying, still had time for me
Marvin Blackstock
well what can I say... superb service... 4 days from first phone call to picking up my cb1300.. what a machine... what a dealership.. thanks very much guys... see you soon...
Donald Wardrop
Just got delivery of my gtr 1400 bought from ryder automotive today, can't recommend them enough. Very easy to deal with and delivery all the way to North Ayrshire, Scotland. Thanks again 👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍
Dyre Sønnicksen
I found Ryder Automative on the net, I live in Denmark and found my dream bike in there stock - The Yamaha XT1200Z Super Tenere. From the first mail, Joe had a fantastic service, and was always willing to go the extra mile. I flew from Denmark to meet Joe and pick up my bike. Everything was ready for me, when I arrived. I am so thriled of this deal and Joe not only sold me a fantastic bike, he sold me a adventure.... I will give all the staff of Ryder Automotive, a score at 25 of 10... :-)
I will recoment Ryder Automotive to everyone.
Steven New

Aieden Baker
The very best bike dealership I've ever dealt with and will be the only one I use from now on. Joe, James and Kelly are very polite and understanding and any help they are there when needed. Thank you James for delivering my GSXR to me this morning I can't believe how beautiful it looks in the flesh. 10/10 all the way for me. Thanks again regards Aieden
Jean Du Plessis
Make this your first dealer you visit when looking for a motorcycle. Very good service and no hard sales tactics. Great bikes and fantastic after sales care
Ben Donnelly
This isn't a shed on an estate it's a proper showroom.Bought a Honda which was professionally presented with no misrepresentation in the description.Pleasant people who were a pleasure to buy from.I would certainly be happy to buy again from them.
Lee Hunter
These guys are easily the best in the area. I travel 15 miles to go to these guys because the service and approach is excellent. They remember everyone's name even after a good amount of time, and they say what needs doing always being very honest. Trust me they are different gear .
Aron Salkeld-Townsley
These guys truly are fantastic they aren't pushy salesman at all they are very polite, friendly professional. I'll be back if I ever get bored with my new toy and I'd highly Recommend anyone thinking of an upgrade or buying a used motorcycle to let these be your first stop. It was a pleasant and welcoming experience for me. Thank you team Ryder
Norman Squires

Great to meet you guys on Saturday. My lad soaked up everything you said about the helmets so gave me a 30 minute lecture on the way home about the differences between the different helmets remembering every little detail bless him!!! Looking forward to getting on the road soon and would definitely Recommend Ryder Automotive.
Trevor Dalton
I would like to say a big thank you to Joe and the team, for the excellent professional service received from 1st point of contact to end of sale and collection of my dream bike, an S1000RR Sport. I would of been happy to have had the bike delivered based on photos and walk round video, however I needed to sign some paperwork. The bike is exactly as shown in photos and description, and prepared to a very high standard. I would highly recommend them. One very happy biker.
Stuart Piper
Fabulous service again from the team at Ryder. Has become the place to go for my needs, took care of my servicing, organised powder coating of my wheels, and now just sorted me out with luggage and waterproofs. Staff always willing to help and advise what works and what doesn't. Took care of all the fitting etc, greeted with friendly faces and great coffee, so much nicer than trying to deal with a main dealer, won't go anywhere else now.
Mark Glisson
Helpful friendly people they put no pressure on you even when they closed on the day i brought my bike. And the bike was Prepared to a high standard. I've had no problems with the bike but they have given me the confidence that should anything happen they would help. Would highly recommend them
Mark Seager
The guys and girls at Ryder Automotive are very helpful and full of great advice. The kit ( bash hats, leathers and gloves) they sell in the shop is great quality at good prices. Anything I ask about was supplied no problem with other options offered in a friendly helpful way. This family run business is all about your needs providing a great service with great bikes and kit in a relaxed way. They even came to my rescue 40 minutes after I bought my bike because I ran my battery low trying to start my bike with the kill switch engaged 😞, they came and jumped started me. Thoroughly Enjoyable experience, Thank you.
Tony Luccini
Really pleased for you guys, the service we receive has always been 1st class and tailor made to the individual. It's like one big family. I would never buy a bike elsewhere now, although as Calvyn Sills will tell you, my lovely R1 has at least another 40 years left in it yet 🙂. Unless I see an R1M in your showroom of course, actually no, don't tempt me haha. Have a lovely Christmas to you all at Ryder 👍
Aieden Baker
Tony Luccini brought an R1 in there with my mate.. absolute fantastic bike, customer service and down to earth people. Certainly have plenty of knowledge in bikes which is always a good start
Scott Fleming
Ryder Automotive you are a fantastic dealer if you are now stocking other brands it's only because they are up too your standards !
Stuart Piper
Absolutely over the moon with the transformation. Can't thank you all enough, best decision I ever made was to buy from you, the service then was outstanding, I can now say the aftercare service is just as amazing. You truly do know how to look after your customers, again a huge thank you, and wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a huge toast to you all for 2019.
Steven Hayes
Joe and his team , was great from the moment I went to see the bike to the guy that dropped its off for free this morning James the salesman knows his stuff and about the bikes he is saleing , at no time did I get the hard sale , If you buying a bike it's worth speaking to these guy who will move heaven and earth to help Thank you
Martin Wagner
From start to finish Ryder Automotive have delivered brilliant customer service from sales to delivery its was faultless. Other bike shops should look at ryder and aim to be on there level. One very happy customer, cant recormend Ryder enough. Trust and condidence for me is a big thing when buying online and everybody at Ryder delivered just that, Thank you again Joe and James .
Ian Holmes
Brought my 2nd bike last month of these guys, a BMW S1000RR. Great friendly service, nothing was too much trouble and I highly recommend them.
Micheal Iacovou
Recently purchased gsxr 750 very happy with the bike very happy with the customer services Joe and his wife helped me every step off the way with my purchase including equipment and advice i would recommend Ryder automotive to anyone who is serious about bikes..!!
Nik Edwards
Fantastic bunch of real bike enthusiasts. Joe and the guys don't just sit behind a desk like a bike dealer, they are out there riding with the rest of us. I would say they deliver what we all want fair prices, great service and great people. A breath of fresh air.
Steve Collins
Think it's all been said before and I can but agree, after visiting a few used bike showrooms I can only say how impressed I was with their set up, extremely smart all quality stock and something for everyone. A service and showroom to put most main dealers to shame. At last I have a ST1300, albeit a very wet one now. Glad I made the trek over. What do I need next, could squeeze another in!
Graham Coxon
Booked a service I messed up the date and turned up early, but the Ryder Team did the service the same day, did some great work and the bike rides like new too!! Cheers Guys Highly Recommended
Kevin Austin
Recently purchased an ST1300 and one of the dipped beam bulbs had gone. Local dealers weren't interested in that or servicing as one even said the bike was too big? A search on the web found Ryder Automotive and from the first initial phone call, Joe and his team have been excellent. Gave me a fair price and all booked in for this morning. Arrived early and waited outside, they obviously saw me, came out and provided a welcome cup of tea. Provided details of the services they could provide and prices which are very reasonable. Old fashioned service where the customer comes first. Joe and Ryder Automotive you have just gained another customer and look forward to an excellent future relationship. Thank you for your excellent service and hospitality that totally deserves me taking the time to leave a well deserved review in the hope it convinces other bikers to get in touch with you and prevail themselves of your excellent services and attention.
Nick Parris
Congratulations Joe and your team,it has always been a pleasure talking to you, and appreciate your honesty
James Kelly
Can't recommend Ryder Automotive enough. Purchased a beautiful GSX-R 750 from them and they made the buying experience very pleasant, and that's coming from someone who works in car sales. They even held the bike in storage whilst I passed my test, then came straight down to pick it up. These guys don't cut corners either; my new bike was almost due a valve service, which I was going to mention when I saw the bike for the first time, and they beat me to it.

Big thanks to Kelly for sorting the finance out for me, James for signing the finance up, and Joe for handing the bike over to me.
Jonathan Truss
"˜Having been patient to buy the right MT-10 one became available with Ryder.

Buying from a dealer you don't know can always be a "˜cross fingers' decision! No need to do so here. I found the whole buying experience and my purchase to be 100%, they even picked me up from the station and a perfect 150 ride home. Delightful people to deal with too, I can't recommend them enough, you can buy with confidence.'
Robin C
Extremely helpful and professional service,would gladly recommend and would use again
Mark Allen
Very friendly and helpful staff, with great knowledge and stunning bikes.
Andrew Bosworth
Bought a bike without seeing it, risky thing to do but I was immediately put at ease once I had spoken to Joe, it was quickly apparent how much he cares about his business and his customers. There were some teething problems getting the bike ready but I was kept informed throughout the whole process. A few weeks down the line and more problems occurred with the brakes, clutch and paint..received quick rectification of all problems including collection and re-delivery of the bike with no qualms and nothing but apologies from Joe and his team. I have not experienced anything on par with the service received at this dealership..I will definitely be returning for my next bike and will be recommending Ryder Automotive to my friends. Thanks very much Joe...excellent.
Darren Giles
New rear tyre on the HP4 and diagnotiscs, nice service and always friendly atmosphere.
Beverley Godden
Absolutely delighted with the service I received from Joe when I brought my CBR650F from Ryders in May. I had trouble trying to arrange a time to collect it, due to work, but they arranged to have it delivered to my house. The bike sprung a small oil leak a week or so after I had started riding it, so I popped it back to Ryders and they fixed it and delivered it back to my house. Nothing was ever too much bother. I would definitely recommend them as they are so much more friendlier than a main dealer! A+++
Richard Slater
Got in touch tonight have issue with front tyre and Joe ryder is going to sort me out in morning now that's service , new tyres means peace of mind as going touring in France soon , cheers Joe.
Mike Lenette
Joe, Kelly and James provided an excellent service. Couldn't be happier with my awesome Speedmaster!!! They were so patient when my bank messed us about....for 4 hours! Will be back, for sure.
Ryan Highland
Absolutely over the moon with my r6! This bunch of lads and ladies really know there stuff! Found me the perfect bike in my price range .. and it is a absolute dream highly highly recommended!!! Would not go else where!!!

They also do home delievry!!!!
Adam Abbott
Recently purchased my BMW S1000XR from Ryder and I'm extremely happy with my purchase ànd the customer care given.
Joe and Kelly were friendly, great, helpful, knowledgeable and I can't praise them enough and their family and staff.
After care is brilliant and can't wait to join them on one of there runs into Europe.
Thanks very much would recommend to everyone I know.
Adam and Sally x
Nigel Douglas Smith
The most friendly of bike shops ive ever dealt with, really over the moon with there service and 100% definitely recommend to anyone looking for a new bike very honest and a good service
Stuart Piper
Probably the best used bike dealer in the country! If Carlsberg did dealers, they'd need to work hard to beat this team. Been round all the other usual places, and either they only wanted to sell me new bikes, didnt want to sell me anything, or were too busy drinking coffee to care, then i walked into this showroom. Well, my perception of dealers soon changed, was greeted by Joe, who was really friendly, and to be totally honest, wasn't interested in selling me something, we spent more time just chatting lol. This is where it soon became apparent that at Ryder, they don't want to just sell you a bike. Sounds odd, but they sell you a package, its an experience. If the bike you want doesn't have the bits you were looking for, they'll sort it. I was so impressed by the service here, i had to come back the same day, and buy it. Even before i had passed my test!! That was no problem for them either, 'we'll keep it safe til you do' was the answer. The aftercare package they can offers is perfect for me, they are happy to care of servicing and MOT's for me, meaning no painful trips to main dealers etc or tring to find somewhere to fix it should i ever have a problem. To me this was priceless, all i had to worry about was buying the bike, great service, great aftercare, a company at last that values it's customers, as the bike i bought, they'd previously sold 2 years ago, and he came back for yet another bike. Can't ask for more than that, thank you to all the team, it really was a pleasure dealing with you all.
Gary Cox
Awesome service. Joe and Kelly have a great business. Honest people and true bikers.
Antony Barke
Fast becoming my favourite dealer, some of the best bikes I've seen in one place ever! Bought an honest px clearance myself, returned the following week to buy a bike from stock with a friend, who is over-the-moon with it, I'm now plotting my next purchase from these guys.
Stuart Piper
Just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your time and effort yesterday. It was a real pleasure to meet you, and what w relief to have found such an amazing company on my doorstep. Really can't put into words what a breath of fresh air your company is to the industry, if Carlsberg did motorcycle dealers"¦"¦"¦"¦"¦"¦"¦"¦"¦"¦"¦"¦they'd model it on yours!
Antony Barke
Spoke with Joe on the phone early in the week about a used bike they had taken in as px; Super friendly and honest on the phone, so much so, I went down today to ride and buy, In person they are all very friendly, have a nice showroom (free coffee) and a stunning stock of bikes, I will definitely be back when it's time for a change.
Neil Woodhouse
Really great to have someone who is more worried about you getting the right bike you are going to love than making a sale! Had some great advice and help off Joe about riser bars which have transformed the bike! Oh my God, what a difference! These are the bars Triumph should have put on as standard! SO much more natural, comfortable, and actually easier to ride as it requires less effort and you don't grip anywhere near as hard. Would thoroughly recommends these - no wrist / back / neck ache at all on the ride home! Thanks again for the advice and help Joe!
Josh Nolan
Joe was a fantastic help through the process of getting the bike sorted and ready for pick up, what a delight! So chuffed to be back on two wheels and with the help of Joe, wouldn't of been possible. Thanks again!!
Dean Hill
Just brought my 2nd bike from Ryder Automotive. The first time was A**** and nothing has changed in 18month. Fantastic service by Joe and the team, would highly recommend them and when I come to changing my bike again Ryder Automotive will be first place I will look. 😁
Jeff Cox
My 1st dealing with them and very impressed on my experience so far.
Andrew Adams
Buying a bike from a distance can often be a stressful experience as you never really know what you are paying for until it arrives, not so with this company! The quality photos that are sent to you, are very thorough and you can have a video as well if you wish. I spent a lot of time looking at everything and was not disappointed at all. Overall, the whole transaction was a pleasure from start to finish. I have no hesitation in recommending them to other bikers.
Richard Slater
Five stars, Great people great service great bike what more can I say
Malcolm Bradley
Very pleased with my bike from Ryder Automotive. First class service, very efficient and really nice, helpful people to deal with.
Neil Gibbon
What a fantastic family run business. It's my second bike I've bought from Ryder automotive I traded my Kawasaki z750r which I only had a year. Joe gave me a good price for my bike as I was a returning customer. I'm over the moon with my triumph Daytona 675 it puts a smile on my face every time I get on it. Will definitely be returning in a few years to get my next bike. Cheers joe ........
Marc Yeatman

Kelly Dean
My husband got his Zx10r which he is over the moon with! They gave a very reasonable price for part ex and just made everything so smooth and easy. The bike went from be not ready for collection to ready in under 2 hours which was brilliant. All the staff were very helpful and friendly. I highly recommend doing business with this place. Thank you very much!
Vitaly Ivanovs

Dean Thistleton
Excellent professional service from initial enquiry right through to delivery of my bike. I would highly recommend these guys to any potential customer. I bought an MV Augusta F3 RC from the images and video from there website and was not disappointed on delivery.

Bridie Trower
Thank you Ryder automotive for all your help throughout the purchase of my new car. A special thank you to James who took me on a test drive and provided me with lots of information about my new car. Great service, thank you again!!
Trevor Harlock
A family motorcycle dealer with a difference - a breath of fresh air! Big thanks to Joe and Kelly - they've been most accommodating and an absolute pleasure to deal with. Ryder is a great little set up with some lovely carefully procured stock, and I'm over the moon with the Aprilia Tuono that I just purchased from them - Joe sorted a few bits and extras for me and I couldn't be happier. Even P/X'd my old bike in for a reasonable price too - all in all a pain-free experience. Can't recommend them enough.
Pete Stanley
Bought a zzr1400 today and the service i recieved was excellent, quick turn around and very friendly staff to natter too whilst red tape is being processed. Id recommend this shop to anyone

Ben Wodfine
Quick and reliable service. Great bikes and great staff.
Andy Bates
Bike number 2 from Joe and Kelly at Ryder Automotive , added all the extras I wanted with no fuss at all. Cant fault the process, and I am sure when I look for bike number 3 or 4 this will be my first place to look.
Artus Vitkus
So I have bought a bike from these lovely people, and i am more than statisfied with their excellent customer service! Kelly helped me out alot with finance and main question and Joe fitted a restrictor in for me and also waited 2hrs after closing time on SATURDAY evening only because it was the only time i could of collected it! Many many thanks and I am coming back later to you guys, worth the travel and time!
Charles Mead
Thank you for delivering my BMW R1200RT MU today. Dealing with you was the good experience buying a bike should be. Joe was very helpful even before my purchase with his advice and I would be happy to deal with him again.
Aidan Boulter
Bike collected from my home, valeted, advertised and sold for the agreed price. No hidden extras and the fee discussed in advance.
Thanks for the excellent service Joe & Team Ryder. I'm glad my bike went to a good home!
John Kenny
After seeing a ZX10R 2008 model advertised by this family run business I found that nothing was too much trouble for these guys! So i picked up my Kwaka today 25/01/2018. I was taken out for a test ride by Steve who knows his stuff!!!. The service here is second to none, many thanks for a really good experience if you want to buy a genuine motor from genuine people the do yourself a big favour and chat to these guys first 11 out 10 from me ;o) ;o) ;o)
Stuart Kirk
Thanks 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 Honey
Would 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 Mayes
A 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 Heathcote
Just 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 Rayner
Highly 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.

A1 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

Have 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 Wright
Amazing 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.

I 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 �.
Thank you all so much and if I don't see you before have a fantastic Christmas and a very prosperous 2018.
Sam Wigens
First 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 Mayo
What 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 Feaks

Been 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 Austin
Gave 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 Palmer
I 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 Bannister
Well 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

After 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 Sin
Bought 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 Brooks
just 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 Gibbons
Great shop and very friendly, worth the travel
"Although I did not purchase the bike I went to see, I certainly would not hesitate to buy a bike..."
Philip Gildea
bought 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 Houghton
I 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 Buckland
Excellent customer service, been a year and the bike is as good today as when I brought it. Would highly recommend buying here.
Lucy Imeraj
Very happy with purchase and outstanding customer service. Highly recommended.
Martin Kane
Being 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 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 Norris
I 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

What 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 Clements
Hi 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.
Thank you.
Kieran Law
Joe and Kelly Ryder were awesome the transition from 125cc to 600cc was easy and well organised.

Mark Barnes
I 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 Hermitte
Never 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 J
Joe 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 Johnson
I'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 Towner
Hi 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 Holmes
So 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 Crosby
These 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 Patrick
I 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!

Very relaxed atmosphere, talked to me about the bike without trying to pressure me into anything. I would highly recommend Ryder Automotive to all my friends and i will 100% be back to them when its time for a new bike.
Richard Bullimore
Ryder Automotive have now supplied me with a cbr125 for my son a cf125 for my daughter and now a fantastic vl1500 for myself. These guys are professional and very friendly Joe's subject matter knowledge is second to none he will spend as much time as you need to discuss every step whilst his son is busy cleaning the chosen bike to a show room condition. Top people
Calvyn Sills
I purchased my first bike from Ryder automotive. And I'm over the moon with my purchase. They are friendly and honest and I highly recommend then to anybody

Tim Peach
Anyone thinking about purchasing a bike should definitely give Ryder Automotive a visit. Customer service that is second to none, brilliant help and advice and a fantastic range of very well presented bikes. Joe and Kelly were really friendly, not pushy and made me feel at ease. Very happy with my bike and will definitely recommend anyone to approach them.
Midgie Man
Bought my ER6F about a week ago, it's perfect, bike was been clean and service was amazing, definitely recommend!
Antonio Val
So 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 Broady
the 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 Bullimore
Both my brother and I have purchased a bike from Joe and Kelly and we both walked away really pleased!
I arrived late when joe's son had already put the bikes away but they didn't hesitate in getting them back out for me to look at which I thought was really nice of them. 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 Savill
Went 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 Lomas
Excellent 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!
