    Yeah, I use them as destinations.
    Sometimes I just turn around in the
    parking lot or look in the window.
    Sometimes it is three in the morning
    when I drive by. Keeps me away from
    the refrigerator and on the road.

    Rochester Ny, Hartford Ct, Worchester, Ma
    Hampton Beach Nh, Danbury Ct, Wilkes-Barre Pa, etc.

    I'm trying to eventually visit them all as well.. I even took the PDF of all the US dealerships on BMW Motorrad's website, turned it into a spreadsheet, and then fed it into google maps, so you could see where all the nearby dealerships are on a planned trip.

    Now if this could be downloadable into some handheld device, so if you're broke down somewhere, you could see not only where the nearest dealer was, but also how to get there- that would be pretty cool...

    There are POI files out there for every brand.

    As to dealers as destinations....are you guys serious?

    destination was closed as a BMW dealer. if they were renewed i have not heard about it. their website is still up but that could be an error.

    I think that you need to raise the bar on your goals in life.

    Not goal oriented, lazy, speculative and open-minded:
    I have fun sometimes when I least expect it and discover
    things that I didn't know existed, let alone set them as goals.

    They weren't closed, Milt just sold out. As far as I know they are still open.

    Destination is open(ownership changed hands) and they still have the BMW franchise.

    Worchester? AYKM? No such place in this state. Cross that one off your list! Now, we've got a Waban and a Woburn, a Sherborn and a Shelburne, but we've got no Worchester, for sure.

    Now when you come back to our Commonwealth, you can also swing by AJ Cycles (BMW dealer) in Greenfield, MA, Greater Boston Motorsports in Arlington, MA (pronounced "Ah-ling-tin" around heah), Dunbar Motorsports in Brockton, and Wagner Motorsports in Worcester, MA. Come back on the right day (usually a Sunday), and you can have fun at a Yankee Beemers meeting.

    There's an AJ in Gill, MA; is there one in Greenfield also?
    Haven't done the Arglinton one yet. And I misstated the
    home of MAXB as Hampton Beach vs North Hampton.

    Two errors in one post: I guess I need to take the Motorcycle
    Editing Foundation refresher course.

    Mea Culpa, Mea Maxima Culpa. There is no AJ Cycle in Greenfield, MA...AJ is in Gill, MA (~6 miles away from Greenfield). I was in school just two miles North (@ Mt. Hermon), and should know better.

    If you're back in the area, try US 202 from South to North on the West side of the Quabbin Reservoir. It's a gorgeous road with long sweepers. People say there are police out there. Even at the speed limit, it's a great ride. Once you hit MA Route 2, head West to MA 63N, then head West @ Northfield to Gill, MA and AJ Cycle.
