New BMW joint in S.Fla

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.

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.

Great Location

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.

You're right!

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.

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