New BMW dealer in Bellingham?

A buddy of mine says he saw a new sign go up, over by Wilson's Furniture along side I 5. Anybody else see this?

Ural Northwest changed their name to Pacific Northwest Motorcycles, picked up Moto Guzzi, Aprilia, and Vespa a while back, and just picked up BMW.

We got rid of the Hardly stealership, Al's Honda, AND got a home for Italians?

YES!

Edit: I work a block from the Harley shop, and went there on my break to see if they had any tools etc that I could use. Computers, parts bins etc, all priced really cheap... the table full of Harley hats? $19.95 plus tax

Is Al's Honda the shop right beside Kulshan Brewing?

sorry to hear any shop closing

Usually I'd say "me too" but Al's Honda has been a shitty shop for YEARS. All the sales people were dicks, they were NEVER willing to help... Oh, and did you ever read about the burnouts on customers tires?

It was. No big going out of business sale or anything - just a sign in the window a few days ago.

MiteyF, do you ride the blue Strom with "keep right" on the panniers?

I didn't know about Al's Honda going out of business. I hate to see places go under but I can't think of a single reason that place deserved to stay open.

I didn't see it.

Hm, I didn't see anything about a BMW dealership. I just got back from a ride to check out the alleged new dealership and didn't see a sign by Wilson's furniture.

All I saw was raindrops on my visor, fog buildup in my visor, tilting horizons as wind blew 700 pounds of dude and bike all over the highway and the big ass / bright ass casino sign across from Wilson's furniture.

Decent excuse for a ride anyway!

We need to get out and go for a ride, the only guys I know who ride around here are either on cruisers, race reps or dirtbikes. I have no sumo/adv buddies :-(

I ride every day, except occasionally (every other week or so) I'll take the VW or the truck out for one reason or another. The white sharpie'd DRZ is mine too.

I'm on my 1100GS just about every day as well. My wife rides her 650GS a fair bit but is not a daily rider. Also, my brother just moved to town and rides a matte black '08 Wee.

There are ADVers around, I guess just not as visible as your bikes. You can't miss yours!
