Certainly is, was at his place a few weeks back. He just doesn't do any advertising. None that I can see anyway. He'd get a lot more work if he did, is always sound to deal with.

According to their website, they're selling new bikes.
Is anyone actually foolish enough to buy a new R1 or Fireblade from them?

A good business doesn't need to advertise

True, I agree - but for newbies like me that don't know anything is a bit hard to find these sort of info, but I see your point and now I know about it

That was just a general observation.
You are lucky in that you can get honest feedback from lads here about shops in your area,so don't be afraid to ask.
I have no experience of any of the shops in the West bar Meskells in Lmk.
That was a long time ago and they changed hands since but the general consensus seems to be positive.
