Yeah, I was thinking the same thing! Like the worst time of year for a moto store to relocate, let alone take a month doing it. You'd think they'd've prepped the new store first, then moved over a 3-day wknd or something.

Peculiar....

We had a shared vendor come into the dealership last week wanting to know if we knew anything about it....

Sounds like they will be utilizing space within the dealership, but who knows!

Just an FYI that I had to call the dealership in Plymouth today to schedule service and she said they are backlogged with work due to the Detroit dealership being closed. She basically said (and I'm paraphrasing) the Detroit location is gone for good so don't hold your breath on it returning if you need anything soon.

That's kinda the gist of what I was feeling. The way they conducted the move is highly suspect, but I don't have any real info outside of whats in here.

I knew they were requested by BMW to update the showroom, and I knew that to update the one there it was going to be pretty expensive. So the move doesn't surprise me unless they couldn't swing it.

I have friends near GR, the bike needs service so infrequently that I may just cruise out that way for a day trip.

Did you have a bad experience with the Plymouth location?

Yea buying my RR, I wasn't a big fan of them after that. They usually have long service times as well, so I just always went elsewhere for everything.

Gotcha. This my first time dealing with them too so fingers crossed it goes according to plan.

I liked BMW-D's service (Don) better than BMW-SE. Cheaper, friendlier, cheaper, quicker, loaner-bikes, and cheaper.

GR is just too far away for this E-sider.
