BMW Riverside Grand Opening, Sat 12 June
I had some work to do in Riverside and happened to notice that there is a new BMW motorcycle dealership there, BMW Motorcycles of Riverside. The next trip (last Friday) I made it a point to stop in and visit. At the time, they had been open only six weeks, and were very much a work-in-progress. The roundel sign wasn't there yet, but they told me that it would be going up this week.
I met the owner, Dan Schoo, the general manager, Steve Sergi, and some other people working there. They were all very nice, and excited about their new business. Lior Elbaz is working for them. He was working as an independent certified BMW tech in Riverside. (I wonder if he originally worked for Malcolm Smith when they sold BMW?)
They will be holding their Grand Opening celebration next Saturday, 12 June. The BMW trailer will be there for demo rides, and there will be food and giveaways. Don't ask me what food or which giveaways; I only stopped in for a brief visit last week.
BMW of Riverside is next to the huge Harley building, on the other side of the street from Malcolm Smith.
