You'll be lucky when the closest BMW dealer is 120miles away. Mine is similar which is why I learn to do most maintenance. I also own a trailer just in case

Max is a decent dealer. I have only used them for warranty work, but have been satisfied with their service.

Within five miles of my home: Honda, Yamaha, Kawasaki, & Harley Davidson. No BMW, however. :cautious:

Well, I'm thinking about this and there's a reason. Either HD sales are really good around there or they really need dealer support!

I will have you know that 90% of all Harley's ever made are still on the road!


The other 10% have made it home...

My closest BMW dealer is 100 miles away in Scottsdale. I only use them for warranty work and the occasional valve gap inspection. I have a Kendon trailer so I set up an early appointment and trailer the bike down so that the engine is cold for the inspection. My wife usually has a shopping list whenever we go to the Phoenix area so that pursuit will kill more than enough time for the service to be completed.

There is only ONE answer in the New York State area....DAN USACK!!!
He just DELIVERED my bike last night.He is the best and does it all...Electrical,mechanical,motor,paint,set up...I would not trust my bike to anyone else.Remember,at a dealership,lots of overhead,and its all about volume.They need to "get it off the lift,and get the next one in"
Dan treats every machine like it his own and his wife is going to ride it.He wont let you go wrong.He has a wealth of experience,and ability.He also owns and rides 2 BMWs of his own,one being a K1600.He knows what he is talking about.Feel free to call me at (585) 739-0354 if you have any questions
