B'ham Dealership........Closed.

Another dealership closes its doors..........the BMW, Triumph, Guzzi dealership near Eastwood Mall in Birmingham is gone. They were only 10 minutes from Barber's Complex.......and I heard they were relocating the dealership to across the street from Barber's Entrance Sign sometime in the future. But I guess that was all "dreams"............
I hate to see any dealership close........lost jobs, lost investment for the owners, and the motorcycling community suffers as well. I really like the Triumph ADV bikes but the lack of dealer network (locally now) prevents me from looking at them seriously.

Aw man! That is a bummer. Alabama must be a tough market for dealerships. I guess the fact that I buy used bikes doesn't help the situation

You can still buy new MG's, BMW's and Triumphs in Birmingham.
I just bought a new, leftover F800R from Red Mountain Motorsports on Crestwood Ave.

Looks like April 12 was their last day open.

They filed for Chapter 11.......the place is empty..........no signs of life, unfortunately.

It wasn't a very well run shop imo. I hated to see them close but I'm going to GA. to get a bike now I guess.

Wow, looks like I dodged a bullet regards getting all paperwork and extra stuff I bought at time of purchase.

The guys I dealt with seemed like they were OK. I'm sorry to see them go.
