Motorcycle shops...........

I have the week off and am considering going to visit a motorcycle shop or two in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Anyone have any favorite sport-bike shops, or know of shops to avoid in Charlotte? My brand preference is Honda but I will look at anything. Actually, I would also like to visit a BMW shop if there any around.

And yes, I will probably pop into a bike shop or two along the way.

No BMW or Ducati fans here? It is still two wheels.

If no one has a favorite motorcycle shop in Charlotte,how about your favorite bicycle shop?

Modo,

Thanks. I may post this over in a regional thread in hopes someone over there is familiar with Charlotte shops......motorcycle and bicycle.

Hmmmmm. Define 'fan'.

Pcad rides a Honda ST1300.

This is a link to the local BMW dealer in Charlotte: http://www.bmw-ducati.com/

I have no experience with them; I get my dealer support from BMW of Atlanta or pure tech support from Zack Southard at the DucShop in Marietta, GA

You might also consider hitting up these guys for a recommendation: http://www.carolinasbmwmoa.org/

Tandem,

Thanks a bunch. I am currently bike-less but have the week off and just like to look and that looks like a good shop and for good measure is only about 90 minutes away.

Merry Christmas.

BMW ATL does motorcycles as well? I thought they were purely cars.....might have to pay them a visit sometime.

You're thinking of Global Imports / BMW at the I75 / I285 interchange? Or perhaps United BMW, Nally BMW or BMW of South Atlanta... Hank Arrons place. Those are all car-only dealers.

BMW (motorcycles) of Atlanta... is a separate entity located at the end of the Dobbins AFB runway on US41 / Cobb Parkway. It's about 10 minutes away from Global Imports / BMW if you catch all the lights just right or know the back way.

Nicest folks you'll ever meet and the owners -- Bob & Lynda -- are almost always on the floor.

They recently added Ducati to their BMW/Husqvarna offerings so it's a worthwhile visit.
