I think it depends a bit on what model (e.g. era) your bike is and what you want to have done. I'm mostly a 916-era guy and other than Gregg Rammel, I haven't had any good experiences in Michigan when it came to anything beyond simple maintenance. Earlier this year, prior to Gregg's passing, he had decided to stop working on others' bikes and just focus on his own. It was terrible news to hear of his passing - - he was talented, and he was a nice guy - - and funny too.
I have had good experiences going down to Matt Carr's shop in Indy. I can usually setup a Saturday appointment...drive down in the morning, have the work done, and drive back same day. For engine work I go to Mark Sutton at the Ducshop...always a great experience and worth the work of getting an engine (or a bike) to him.
RIP Gregg - - he's missed immensely by many.
