Another One Bites The Dust

Recommended Posts

Schlossmann's BMW of Milwaukee is closing its doors.  It is a surprise as the Schlossmann family has a number of auto dealerships, but I guess the motorcycle dealership was a drag on their balance sheet.  Mischler's in Beaver Dam is now my closest dealership about 60 miles out of Milwaukee.  I fear this trend of door closings isn't going to ease up anytime soon.  A sad trend indeed.

 

I must admit I might not be the target customer for any shop in that I tend to ride them for decades before replacing and once out of warranty I am only buying parts and consumables and wrench on them myself.  I had been running BMW labeled oil and filters and at an hour away to a BMW shop, I'll likely go on line for that  as well.

 

I will go over there for the auction to see if I can snag a few special tools and maybe a nice bike lift.  It will be sort of sad to watch the place get parted out.

Once known as Reg Pridmore Motorcycles. Used to have the R90S race bike on display. Now it's just some indie guy who is too cheap to buy new carpet.

I usually only go to the dealer once a year. I will probably just make the ride to Mischler's - about 90 minutes for me. They did tell me they will ship parts.
