South East Michigan BMW does.

Also here's a non-BMW that has a good selection, Motor City Power Sports. I've bought a couple of jackets and helmets from them. Here's their site;

I've haven't been to any of them in a couple of months so you should probably give them a call to see what they've got at this point before stopping by.

Detroit BMW carrys primarly First Gear and virtually no BMW branded product. SE Michigan BMW has far more gear than Detroit.....

Probably SE Mich Dealer on Ford Rd. They generally have good stock of BMW, Olympia and others. I was into the Detroit store late October and they were picked over. I asked if more stock was coming in and all I got was a shrug.

You might consider calling them and asking "What 'ya got" before you make the trek...Unless you're real close of course.

Good luck!

Re: Detroit BMW or South East Michigan BMW?

I suspect that the SE MI Dealer, on Ford Rd. will likely have a better selection of clothes, jackets, pants, etc. by BMW, Olympia, and some others.

I was at the Detroit dealer not too long ago and they were really picked over already.

However, it would be wise to call them (both) and ask what you may be searching for. Christmas is over, they might be cleaned out completely... or, not.

Good luck!
