any BMW wrenchers in our midst?

Looking for a local hexhead guy that knows his stuff in the Southeast. Any inmates come to mind?

buying an R1200RT that has sat for a long time and I need to get the bugs identified and sorted out prior to purchase. (fluids/batt/tires/suspension/seals plus whatever else needs attention on the bike)

The Southeast covers a lot of area, can you narrow it down a little bit?

upstate SC- Touring Sport BMW in Greenville would be a good choice. very good aprilia, ducati, BMW dealership that services most of the BMW factory bikes that are used at the BMW training center in Greenville.

Asheville has a newer BMW dealer, but I am drawing a blank and don't know much about them anyway...
