Today was the spring open house at BMW Motorcycles of Atlanta. We decided to ride on down and look around and see some friends. It’s usually a grand affair and today was no exception. There’s lunch (fresh grilled hamburgers, hot dogs & bratwurst), discounts in the store, door prizes and group test rides. The demo R1200GSW water-cooled boxer, also known as the “Wasser Boxer”, was booked solid for the test rides. There were also 2 BMW scooters available for test rides and they were pretty well booked too! Sadly someone had wrecked one of the demo motorcycles on a group test ride but the owners said he was ok, not so much for the motorcycle though.
I found a nice gray R1200RT that I wanted to take home! Donna liked the new dark burgundy color on the K1600GTL, but I think she kind of liked the R1200RT too. She looked at the scooter outside and even said “I think I could ride this!” We lunched with friends and chatted. Of course we looked at motorcycle and gear. I even won a door prize! It’s a set of foam earplugs with a metal carrying case. I’ve already got some nice earplugs but I’ll give these free (free is always good) ones a try and then use the nice carrying case for my earplug. We didn’t get much riding in, but it was a gorgeous day to ride down there!
But you know that’s how they get you. They invite you down, feed you, give you door prizes and then you want to buy something! But they really are a great dealership. Thanks Bob & Lynda!
