Thanks for posting Richard.

For those who don't know, she and Norm were the previous owners of Daytona BMW and the cream of the crop with regard to BMW dealers.

She was a gracious example of how to live one's life and will be missed.

Our condolences to Norm and the family.

Indeed, Maggie was one of the nicest, sweetest people you could ever hope to meet, always fun to be around. And an avid motorcyclist too, she rode near and far on her F650 along with Norm on an identical bike, and many, many miles pillion on Norm's gold R100RS that he bought new in 1977, and still has.


Then there were the many years she was Norm's pit bunny and crew chief when he took his Norton Manx to more than a few wins at racetracks all over the country. But possibly one of the most telling things was within a year of them being married, I think around 1980, she rode on the back of Norm's 1958 (that's not a misprint) Harley-Davidson Sportster to Alaska, and back. Think about that the next time someone says they rode their modern motorcycle to Alaska.


Norm still has the Sportster too, but sadly no longer Maggie, and I feel so very sorry for him, because like her, he's one of the nicest people you'll meet. She was a gracious lady and will be deeply missed by anyone who had the pleasure of knowing her.
