Hi Mark, greetings from across the river in Glastonbury. I see you have been talking to Gengras related to buying a bike. I'll add to the discussion since I am a Canton/Gengras user. I bought my 2000 LTC from Canton in Nov 99 where I met Don, who now is the current service manager at Gengras. Don has taken good care of me, and has been working on BMW's for many years. I've been dropping in there as they have been building up activity since the picked up the franchise from Canton. I feel they are doing a good job. A good selection of clothing items, and 15% off a few times a year to get customers in. I have also spoken to Zack, he seems to be knowledgeable in the business. I have a local friend that loves the dealer in Greenfield. We all have our favorites.
As far as cycle training, I like the Air Guard at Bradley. They have use of an indoor facility to keep you out of the rain, during break time.
There will be a cycle show in Hartford at the old BJ's in January. New York is more of a class act. Metro North is my route to NYC for this weekends activity.
We are lucky in this area as we can ride year round. Did a quick run out to the UConn Dairy Bar, this afternoon. Glad the state is has stopped using sand. RT44 was just fine.
Good luck with your pending purchase.
