Jacksonville Fl Gett'n A New Beemer Dealer

Heard this rumor a couple of months ago. I went fishing around on the WEB yesterday and found a classified ad, with an address, for a service manager at a soon to open BMW Motorcycle dealer in Jacksonville , FL. Well actually it's in Orange Park. Drove by the location later in the day and sure enough there's a large BMW Motorad banner flying outside the building and lots of construction work going on. They also advertise Victory cycles out front. It's on Wells Rd and directly across the street from an existing Hardley dealership. I'm excited to get a dealership closer to home. Nice to have a new opening amidst all the reports of closings. Can't find any reference to an opening date but will keep watch. Planning on going to the NE Florida BMW Winter Rally next weekend so may get some more news there.

So did you apply for the position Lynn?

Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying " I'll try again tomorrow".

Nope! I had a job once and decided that RETIREMENT is a much better option! Besides I don't think I could put up with all them snobby Beemer riders!

Good news Lynn, nice to hear of a new dealership opening up since we have seen so many closing. Maybe you could hire on as a consultant and still enjoy retirement ?

Sucks for me. That is why a BMW dealership can not be opened in Tallahasse I testified at trial last year about this. Great for you guys.
