The folks at Irv Seaver show up at the OC monthly meets and seem like good people. I've only purchased accessories there though.

When I had my GS I had many years of good experiences with West Valley Cycles.

San Diego BMW Motorcycles... I have had friends from all over the country buy bikes there and EVERY single one of them would buy there again.

They are good, caring and knowledgeable folks... every single one of them rides as well.

I use West Valley. They have a lot less overhead than most dealers and the bike purchase price I paid was fair.
They are a very small shop, so if you are looking to be impressed, you won't be.
Laurie doesn't like me, but that doesn't stop me from going there when needed.
Service prices have been fair as well.

I've had better luck with Long Beach BMW.

and although I've not been there, I've heard nothing but good things about Brown Motor Works in Pomona.

I am curious that there has been no mention (that I have seen?) on this forum of the new BMW dealer in Riverside. Not just this thread, but the whole forum. They have only been open a couple months or so, they are having their open house this Saturday. I have dropped by there a couple of times and talked to the owner. He seems like a good guy trying to make a big effort to give good service. Lior is one of his service techs (used to be with Malcolm Smith) and when there was no dealer (after Malcolm Smith lost BMW) in town, I had Lior work on my bike at his house. I have a lot of faith in his work. I would think that a new dealer like this would be a good place to buy a bike because they likely will try to keep you as a customer to grow the business. I'm just throwing the info out there cuz I didn't figure many riders knew they are there.

EDIT (1/08/11): Lior has been working on his own again, and is no longer with BMW M/C of Riverside.

Maybe because it's a new dealership and no one knows about it or have any experience with them.:dunno

Would a cobbler be able to fix that?

Welcome to the Orange Curtain, BTW.

They're all rogues, charlatans, sycophants, and bi-polar degenerates, plus they never have shit in stock :lol3
