need dealer recommendations, please

just got back from my first road trip; up the length of the blue ridge, toured wash d.c. & visited gettysburg. beautiful 1500 mile round trip that i enjoyed immensely in spite of developing some electrical problems;radio/cd went dead second day, gps would reboot anytime i hit something electrical on the third day. arrived home last night with intentions of traveling south this morning but when i hit the starter, the only thing that happens is an audible pop through the speakers. batt appears to be good; headlights don't dim when i hit the starter & center stand operated properly several times.

have options of conveniently using destination in alcoa, tn., bmw of atlanta or miller's in tallahasse, fl. would greatly appreciate any recommendations or shared good/bad experiences with any of these dealers. (2005 in warranty)


thanx

I am sure that filling out your profile (location etc.) and providing some more info about the bike will help others to provide more insight into your problems and also recommendations.

thanx, unleashed, for the invitation but circumstances require privacy & i'm not looking for recommendations on how to repair the bike (not mechanically inclined) just input from those who may have had experience with one of the three dealers listed.

thanx

Both BMW of Atlanta and Miller's BMW have received high reviews in our "dealers experience" forum!

I wonder how many know what your screen name means?

BMW of Atlanta has always been good to me.
