Seattle BMW shops

I am headed to Seattle tomorrow and want to visit one of the BMW moto shops (or if there is a better adventure shop). In your opinions is ride west or southsound better for browsing, gear and motos both.

Thanks

Both great shops with great people.
RideWest will probably be closer, but South Sound is the bigger shop.
Both stock about the same stuff except South Sound has more room for bikes.

If you are going to be in town Saturday South Sound is doing a vendor fair and demo rides.

Friendly bunch at the Fife shop, their solid advice resulted in a very nice 1150GS following me home from S-Cal. Nice folks, with the big picture of motorcycling in mind. Great shop overall. Happy Trails!

Southsound has a larger store and better service shop. Also on Sat they have there annual vendor fair, starts at 9 so if your in town they have about 20 vendors on site in the show room.

No sweat...just remember TT is open M-F, you will need to go there today, or be out of luck if you stop by tomorrow.....
