    Anyone know when the new BMW shop is going to be open here in Miami. Already have a 1200 in the middle of the floor. No signs telling about the opening.:evil

    Hi, I recently purchased a 2002 F650GS Dakar and live in South Miami, FL. I don't know anything about a South Florida BMW MC Dealer opening here. Please let me know the address so I can check it out. It certainly would make sense given the size of this market and the South American bucks floating around here. Would love to meet up with any Advriders down here to learn were the good trails are especially around Lake Okeechobee.

    I work around Doral mostly, so that location is ideal for me. I was up at 441 Cycle Shop last year (before buying my Dakar) and mentioned to them that I found it hard to believe that there wasn't a BMW dealer in Miami. Anyway, I've been up to Ft. Lauderdale several times since and had my first service done there. Oil change, computer diagnostics, etc. and was very happy with the experience. Greg (a long time sales rep there) has been very helpful to me.
    This new dealer is so close though......Anyway, where do you guys ride around here. Are there any Beemer gatherings locally?

    New place opens soon early Sept. Cokes, you are the first person I've heard say they had a good experience from 441 BMW. That includes myself. Ft. Myers is where I've had all my services done since I bought my 1150 GS there. Ready to upgrade and to the 1200 and am hoping Miami can help me out. Owner at 441 wouldn't even get up from his desk to meet me when I was introduced as a pespective 1150 owner. Ft. Myers is great if you can schedule your service for early Sat morning, then ride over, hitting the loop road as the sun is coming up ( and hope they don't need to keep the bike for unforseen reasons). Wish I could be more helpful on group things. Keep checking here as there are things that will pop up from time to time. Happy riding. I ride to work in Doral everyday. Coworkers think I'm nuts. :evil

    Duke,

    You are gonna love the 12GS. Ditto on what you said about the two dealers. I was happier at FMY than at 441.

    HI Marty and the gang! :thumb A group of BMW riders meet at Holiday Everglades Park at US 27 and Griffin Rd on Sunday mornings and shoot the sh^t for a few hours or so.
    I have had good dealings with 441 so far, and I guess you just have to catch the owner at the right time for a good deal. For service however Greg will see to your needs vey well.
    FMY dealer is nice and their service is great too. For me it is a 300 mile return trip to get there from the Keys.

    Hello all.... I'm an F650GS rider, live in Coral Gables and must say that I am pleased to know there are others around this area.

    For those that don't know, on Thrs evenings at the Fudruckers off US1 and 104 st, its like a mini bike..... BMW's are probably less than 1%.... just something to check out.

    never attended the Sunday rides, might just have to show up some day.

    Hope to run into any of you in the future.

    Regards,
    Francisco

    You're right! :cry

    The swarming would never let the BMW's fall into my price level.

    I have to settle for a V-Strom and Pilot "House Blend" coffee. :deal

    Besides, I'd have to get one of those Power Ranger suits and I'd think that suit would make my butt look fat. :evil
