    If to go on the BMW website: www.bmwmotorcycles.com they have a dealer locater. There's a couple of dealers in Maryland, but don't know if that's too far. Good luck

    Morton's below could be a good start

    Morton's BMW Motorcycles
    5099a Jefferson Davis Highway
    Fredericksburg, VA 22408
    (540) 891-9844
    Luck favors those who are prepared.

    DC dealers

    I purchased my bike from BOB's BMW in Maryland because they had a good price on some left over 04 RT's. I live closer to Mortons so they do the services. I have had good experiences with both. The moral of the story is it does no matter where you purchases the bike any dealer will service it.

    I moved this over to Oilheads, where it should see more traffic.

    Ride a 1200RT before you buy an 1150, or at least compare them by riding both. The 1200 is a far superior bike.

    Check out Morton's BMW in Fredericksburg, VA. They will let you test ride a new 1200RT. I purchased mine on August 2nd and love it. Great dealership from sales to service to parts. I hope this helps you out. They also have a web site...www.mortonsbmw.com

    Except the looks, the tall 1st gear and the non-O.D. 6th gear.

    Dealer

    I would recommend both Bob's and Mortons. Just to geeze for a second, I was a cutomer of Bob's when he worked out of his house and garage. I was also a customer of Mortons when they were selling chain saws, mowers, weedwackers, and BMW motorcycles, and working on them all in the same shop.

    Times have changed, but both dealerships are run by riders and the owners are at the shop. Both are first class operations.

    Ride On!

    DC dealers

    Corbster,

    There are 3 dealers in the immediate DC area: Bob's, Morton's and Battley's. Talk to each to get your best deal. Talk with the folks on BMWBMW (local club) for their opinions on these dealers. Battley's is a multibrand dealer so there is a mixed crowd there. I think Battley's gets a bad rap from many of the local BMW riders. I have bought 2 BMWs from Battley's. Look for Paul there, he's a longtime BMW rider.

    You should have a great selection for an R1150RT. My dealer has had more than usual; they came off BMW leases.

    I really enjoyed when I visited Morton's in Fredericksburg. Ask to talk with Jeff Dunkle, he's been in the BMW world long before he was salesman. He posts a lot on the Yahoo KBMW boards.
