no show in cleveland

I know Cleveland is not LA or New York but does BMW really think everyone will travel that far to see their new line of bikes .Someone should tell them that the the old USA covers a little more area then Europe.

Welp ... from all the posts I'm reading regarding pre-orders being made without so much as sitting on the thing, it doesn't seem to matter now does it? The sheep keep lining up.

I wouldn't call them 'Sheep' Joe, just folks with money and motivation to move on to a new bike or just add to the fleet. I have a few friends with deposits on the Teneré. But, at least Yamaha is doing the circuit! Perhaps they have the NEED to get people interested in their new bike, and steal some thunder from the GS series.

BMW sales have been rather solid if you can believe what OTL and MOA report. I guess BMW just doesn't feel the need to spend the extra bucks to display their newest bikes except at the biggest or most populated shows and events.

Re: no show in cleveland

When I first read the topic of the thread I thought it said, 'No SNOW in Cleveland" and wondered how that could be? Seriously, I am sorry that BMW avoids showing product in the Heartland of America but this is not the first year we have been "dissed" as they have not shown product at past Cleveland shows. But this fits well with BMW's apparent strategy of placing focus on the Coasts and Sunbelt where there are more riders. It also fits the limited level of support it provides its Midwest dealers, few that there are. I get very jealous hearing about apparently great dealers such as Max and Bob's, while in my experience, our local dealers sell BMW's as a sideline and are clueless on how to fix them beyond simple services.

Re: no show in cleveland

Seriously - again? Well, if that's true then I've got a free weekend coming up since I won't be going to Cleveland. I am 3 hours one way to Cleveland's IMS, but heck yes I was looking forward to seeing and sitting on the new GT.
