With the demise of Crossroads (Hammersleys) Motorcycle division (in Lynchburg), central and southwest Virginia are now without a dealer. The nice folks, and real moto enthusiasts at Frontline Honda-Triumph in Christiansburg, VA were actively trying to take on the BMW line, and they planned to build a brand new facility just off I-81 in Christiansburg to house all 3 brands. But, as I understand it, BMW Motorad NA is adamant that a new BMW dealer needs to be in Roanoke, and have turned down Frontline's application. BMW Motorad NA must be making plans with someone else to open up a dealership in Roanoke, but I have no idea who or where. I had sent an email to Gary Busch, the "Dealer developement Mgr" at BMWNA in support of Frontline's intentions, and got a prompt reply thanking me for my input and stating that there will be a new dealership in Roanoke by spring 2011. If anyone has a clue as to who in Roanoke might be under consideration for this new dealership, I'd like to know who it is.
