"these guys don't deal

Well then, you should've asked. I did when I was in there yesterday. I've been "dealing" with this shop since they opened. Top notch customer service and mechanical service. Did they tell you they offer 10% off service and accessories for one full year when you purchase a new motorcycle from them? They were allocated the GT's from BMW since they were #2 in Florida for GT sales behind Daytona. Yes, they have a lot of bikes, but they move them. Some people must be happy with the deals they're getting.

$18,800 is the msrp for a stripped down GT. Now add in ESA, heated grips & seats, cruise control and on-board computer, which the bikes at Gulf Coast Motorcycles come with, and you've got a true retail cost.

Stop in on a Saturday and have a hamburger or hot dog from the grill outside the service door. Shoot the bull with other enthusiasts that come by. Not only a great dealership, but a great place to just hang out.

Not anymore. My wife bought the demo bike yesterday afternoon, and they had already sold one of the others prior to that. They only have three left now.

They don't bend on sell price, but they do give fair trades, and outstanding service.

Sorry we missed you, it must have only been by a few hours

i appreciate your thoughts.... but, you might be aware that you are in the MINORITY in your opinion of this particular dealership. most folks believe they are more FLASH over SUBSTANCE.... no offense intended

the owner is arrogant and UNknowledgable....
he told me that BMW is STILL on vacation and that NO 2007s have been produced yet....
mine is on the Atlantic..... shipped 2 days ago....
a week 32 build... august 6th
he had no idea

more than that.....
their dealership is so HARLEYESQUE....
no decent boots in stock
not one pair of PROTECTIVE gloves
they sell for STYLE and not for UTILITY

ok
i'm not here to bash a dealership.... this is a motorcycle forum
but...
the only reason that anyone would buy from them is because of location (which IS a big issue)
and.....
as for your "10% off of service for 1 year"
they are already 15-20% MORE expensive than other dealerships.... so, you save NOTHING

in 3 weeks.... when the 2007 GTs hit....
those 5 remaining '06 GTs will be discounted
he could have sold 2 yesterday to my friends had he burried his arrogance long enough to realize that... and they weren't asking for DEEP discounts

ok......
i'll step off the soapbox.... sorry if i've offended anyone

It ain't cheap! They're hourly rate is the same as my Honda dealer though, so I have no real complaints.

Yeah, that was one hellava storm. Probably the worst we've had all year here, and if you went North you rode right into the teeth of it! That must have been brutal without a windshield! Glad that you make it home safely.

ruben.....
we were all going 60 on I-75
i couldn't see a thing.... lucky to be alive
saw 1 big accident happen 2 seconds before me... a car, backwards in a ditch on the right side of the road
2 lightning flashes with INSTANT thunder.... scared the poop out of me
i had my SUMMER/AIR/MARSEE outfit on.....
felt like being riddling with machine gun bullets
and my $300.00 BMW GORTEX boots....
6 inches of water INSIDE them when i got home...... from the RUNOFF down my legs.... no kidding

i've ridden 150K miles over the years (nothing by BMW standards, i know).....
but, this was some of the worst weather i have personally been in

i don't know that my boots will EVER be right again
