OCTOBER 2015.....It’s getting closer and closer to being done!
On September 29th the new front sign was lit for the ﬁrst time and the pylon in the driveway
went up the next day. The famous “lollipop” reading “new BMW sign coming" finally ringing true
but missing from the landscape (LA City rules).
The air conditioning really works and it has been cool and pleasant inside. Jay’s getting the
TV’s hooked up in the showroom and we are currently adjusting the play selection to include
some special internet videos from our own customers. Karen’s GoPro’s are fun to watch and
can’t wait to see what she sends out from her new S1000RR.
Various construction trucks are slowly disappearing from the parking lot leaving us more space
to park. With the promise of an El Nino fall and winter, we are scrambling to get the parts
building waterproofed as it ﬂooded with the last unexpected monsoon in July. Buddy and Ben
have their yard back and as of this writing, there is only one bike left in a crate which will be
unveiled this next week - a F800 Adventure. More are on the way as soon as this coming
week but several are already sold.
With production of the 2016’s well under way, we said a fond farewell to the magniﬁcient
K1300S and 650GS. Rumor has they will be replaced with new models and with the
Long Beach Motorcycle show coming up in November, surely something will be on display for
all of to enjoy. Speaking of the LB Show, remember it is in November...not December and we
have coupons for discount admissions.The annual Dealer Meeting is just a couple of weeks
away and we are looking forward to announcements there.
Nicely discounted 2015’s are available F800R, F800GS, F800GT, R1200R, R1200GS are on
the ﬂoor in various colors and equipment packages... even a 2015 R9T.
Speaking of nicely discounted, the new 2016 S1000XR has a terriﬁc incentive. We have a
standard and a LOW SUSPENSION side by side for height testing. Jay says, “this is a fun
Whenever possible, we try to order bikes with LOW SUSPENSION, in addition to standard, for
those with less than 36” inseams! It’s amazing what the difference makes; someone who
longed for a 1200ADV can actually safely and conﬁdently ride on a lowered one!.
The long awaited Apparel and Accessory Department is being stocked. Three pallets of
clothing, boots, gloves, bags, etc. arrived this week and are being checked in, priced and
Watch for the introduction of our Virtual Garage Sale featuring items from the past. Like any
Garage Sale, this one will have everything from luggage racks,saddle bags, fenders, mirrors,
fairings, headlights, tail lights, engine parts, brochures,posters, rims...you name it... from a
collection of over 63 years as a BMW dealer. Two cargo containers have overﬂowed and it’s
time to move them out! We found pistons and rings for R27’s when we packed up along with a
few Cushman and Mustang tail lights and even some BSA parts. Our goal is to have a few
photos and descriptions to drop into the website to give you and idea of what we have
On the home front, Joe, our newest Tech has recovered sufﬁciently from his accident to return
and we are very happy to have him back. He is scheduled for advanced BMW training in
November. Rick has ﬁnally won his long ﬁght with complications from a serious bout with
poison oak. Marco takes his MSF course this month!
The Service Department is still consumed with various recalls but the extra sets of hands have
made appointments a little more reasonable. Fuel pumps for the GS’s under recall are back
ordered with none expected in the US until late November. We’ll stay on top of that problem
with a waiting list. Rear wheel ﬂanges are coming in with no problem as of now.
Did you know BMW’s new ADVANTEC oil is made from natural gas?
CushmanII launched the EAGLE last month. There’s a photo of Mom and Dad riding one in our
parking lot from 1958 that’s fun to see. The new CushmanII EAGLE has the reliable 14hp
engine and is a “leg-over” with a saddle seat. A 2.5 gallon gas tank will get over 80 mpg at speeds of 60+mph. A Cushman Red one is featured on the Cushman page
We are trying to put together an Open House for next month; details to come.
As always, we couldn’t do this without you and your support.
Sixty-six years...the Legend Lives On!
