Sure-- I hear that Dyno Time in Wangara is pretty good. Just south of Perth. Not exactly Northwest Australia--more like Western Australia--but they know their stuff.

Possibly, but since his profile has no location, he could mean the Northwest Territories in Canada, the northwest part of Bulgaria, or just about anywhere in between. Even if he means the Pacific Northwest, it's 800 miles from Idaho Falls to Bellingham. Would he want a recommendation for a dealer 800 miles away?

Assuming PNW USA. Raceway's in Salem, OR is a great dealer that I've dealt with often including buying a new 011 Ural. Excellent service and a great crew. Jim (owner) and his crew KNOW Urals. Another dealer with an excellent reputation used to be called Ural Northwest in Bellingham, WA. They've changed their name to something else now but are still in B'ham.
There are new dealers popping up in WA,OR and ID but never dealt with them.
You can't go wrong with Raceway's.

i just went to the local "ural dealer" i put quotes around it, because they have 2 bikes only, its the local harley dealer, and all the sales dude had was one piece of paper to go off of.

its kinda sad when i go to the place, and someone else shows up to look at them, and i can answer more of the dudes questions than the dealer can, and i dont even own one.

2 bikes in stock is pretty good when you consider world wide sales is around 1000 bikes a year, and remember Ural has no floor plan, dealers need to purchase them outright upfront to floor them.

If you mean the Pacific Northwest, USA, check out South Sound BMW in Fife.

Only two in Washington that I know of, South Sound BMW in Fife, and NW Powersports in Bellingham. South Sound is more like a usualy motorcycle buying/service experience. NW Powersports is full on Ural experience. I bought at NW Powersports, and have all my service done at South Sound (it's way closer.)
