Showcase Your Motorcycle At The 2014 BMW MOA Rally

campgrounds2After 30 plus years of participating as a vendor at the MOA International Rally,Bob’s BMW knows it is necessary to annually change up your display to keep it new and fresh so the rally continues to be fun and exciting for all those attending! So for Bob’s 2014 MOA rally display we’ve decided we want to include as many of our customers and their bikes as we can! If you are planning to attend this year’s rally July 24-27, “Rolling By The River” in St. Paul, Minnesota, and your bike was modified, customized, refurbished, or restored (partly or completely) at Bob’s or it was ‘thanks’ to Bob’s great inventory of parts and accessories that your bike is what it is today please contact us as soon as possible to join in on the fun we are planning.

The plan is to rotate the display of bikes at Bob’s booth multiple times each day so that we are not holding any one bike hostage too long—we want you to enjoy the rally to its fullest and we know that includes having your bike available to go out and enjoy some great riding! If you would like to feel like a celebrity at the rally, simply provide with 2 good pictures of your bike (right and left), details of the work Bob’s has helped you with, your contact information including full name, phone number, email, and address, along with a short blurb on why your bike should be showcased in our display at this year’s MOA rally!

Want to go to Cuba in 2015?

cuba-2015Are you ready for an amazing group riding adventure in 2015? Bob’s has teamed up with Moto Discovery and the destination is Cuba! That’s right, the place everyone wants to go but because of US travel restriction almost no one gets to visit. The owner, Skip Mascorro started his company about the same time that Bob started Bob’s and like Bob’s they have lots of experience and a great reputation. Skip has made this opportunity possible for a very limited number of participants from Bob’s customer base and you could be one of them.

Havana-Cuba-postcardIf you chose to join Bob and his wife Suzanne, you’ll get to meet some of the legendary Harlista’s, enjoy some amazing Cuban cuisine and culture and maybe even smoke a hand rolled cigar if that’s your thing. You’ll be able to learn about and experience a beautiful, unspoiled country full of history that in some way touches most Americans from the people who live there. To learn more about the tour, the bikes that will be available, the general costs involved, and of course what’s included…click here. Please note, as this will be a custom tour with Bob’s the exact price may vary slightly.

Bob was convinced by Skip that the longer, 15 day tour is the way to go but we want confirmation from those of you seriously considering this awesome opportunity. So to help finalize the last few details, anyone seriously considering saying yes (or know someone who might be interested) to an experience your friends will be jealous of and you’ll be talking about for the rest of your life, is asked to please take a few minutes to complete the short survey below. Before taking this survey take a few minutes and check out the tour and don’t forget to watch the very informative 3 minute video and browse the “What’s included” and “FAQ” box near the bottom of the page.

Now, please take a few minutes to complete our survey about the upcoming Cuba Trip…serious inquiries only!


Enjoy and Thanks!

Looking Back Over 2013


Our team of certified sales advisors assisted over 350 riders last year, both current and new to the Bob’s family in their selection of new and used motorcycles—BMW’s, Harley-Davidsons, Hondas, Ducatis, Suzukis, Victorys, Kawasakis,  Vespas, Yamahas, Triumphs, Urals, Piaggios, Moto Guzzis, Can-Ams, Big Dogs as well as several sidecar rigs and trike conversions in the mix. Some were true antiques, others classics and a smaller number were what we call Project Bikes. Many of our patrons live nearby and we see them on a regular basis but others came from miles away, as far as Canada and Hawaii, wanting a greater adventure and more memorable experience when taking delivery of their motorcycle. The record for riding home from Maryland on a bike purchased from Bob’s now stands at approximately 4,600 miles!

img_5724Our team of certified apparel advisors helped customers in person and online to select the perfect riding gear for their needs and budget from great vendors including BMW, Olympia, Rev’it, KLIM, First Gear, Gerbings, Schuberth, Arai, Scorpion, Sidi, Shoei and many others. Some of that protective riding gear got used and we are so very thankful it was there to take care of them! Our team of parts and accessory experts provided electronic and personal guidance on accessory purchases from Airhawk, GoPro, Ohlins, PIAA, Cardo, RKA, P3, Kryptonite, J-Pegs, Clearview, ZTech, Garmin, Dow, Illium, R&G and dozens of other top level suppliers so worldwide adventures or simply the commute to work would be that much more enjoyable.

Our inventory and shipping team, in addition to insuring it’s all on the shelf when needed and then making it all go out on time and arrive as ordered, also helped our certified BMW parts experts deliver thousands of individual orders of genuine BMW parts plus countless reproductions and aftermarket replacements so our friends and customers here in the US and in dozens of other countries around the world could maintain, repair, refurbish and restore their motorcycles at home in their own garage or work space while hundreds and hundreds chose to bring their machines to us so our expert technicians could provide all the care they desired so they could simply go out and enjoy the ride. From crush gaskets to complete transmissions we’ve got everything you and your bike require to remain safe, roadworthy, comfortable and fun all year long.

In 2013 Bob and Suzanne hosted two very exciting group tours taking along with several dozen friends, customers and even some fellow dealers. They went to Morocco with Edelweiss Bike Travel and then to South Africa with Ayres Adventures for once-in-a-life-time group motorcycle adventures…LUCKY! The good news is if you were unable to join-in one of these adventures Bob is already planning a 2015 group adventure to Cuba! Anyone interested is encouraged to take the survey below so he can plan the best trip possible based on customer input…please serious inquiries only are asked to complete the survey.

Just before the 2013 Open House which turned out to be one of the biggest turnout yet, Bob and the team spent days updating the Vintage Museum, rotating in many new and never before seen bikes from Bob’s personal collection. We (Bob especially as the vintage BMW’s are his true passion) especially love sharing the machines, artifacts, memorabilia and other pieces of BMW history in the Vintage Museum with guests.

img_6132Customers helped us remain involved and engaged raising significant amounts of money for very worthwhile causes like the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation via the Ride for Kids ® events as well as support several other local non-profit organizations to help insure we are giving back to our community wherever possible. Throughout 2013, we were also able and happy to send out thousands of dollars in door prizes to BMW clubs all across the country because they too are part of our family!

Without people like you none of this would be possible. We do this because we want to, it’s our chosen profession and we do this so we can deliver the Ultimate Motorcycle Experience to as many people as humanly possible each year and have fun doing it because it is our passion. We hope that shows when you visit the dealership, shop online, and every time we speak or exchange an email!

We are in the works planning an exciting year ahead! Please stay tuned for our forecast on what’s in store for 2014 and may this year be the Happiest New Year for you, your friends, and family!

Bob, Suzanne and the entire team at Bob’s BMW.

It’s always sunny and warm someplace that people need their BMW fix — and that’s what we are here to take care of.

Stay Connected With Bob’s Through Social Media
By now, we hope all of you who receive our newsletter are also fans of one or both of our Facebook Pages. Our main page, Bob’s BMW Motorcycles, has over 5,000 fans and our secondary page, GS Riders of Bob’s BMW, has been a little slow taking off but is growing day by day so if you are a GS rider or know any brand dual sport rider, be sure to LIKE the page and pass it along. Bob’s created these pages for the same reasons you have personal facebook pages, to stay connected with our friends; these pages are not used as a channel for selling. The pages are meant to help us keep motorcycle enthusiasts near and far updated with what’s going on at Bob’s and in the motorcycling world as a whole. They also serve to provide enthusiasts with an online resource to talk amongst each other, and is a place to share cool photographs, stories, videos, coordinate rides, and whatever else the user may like.

In addition to our facebook pages, we also have a Bob’s BMW Motorcycles Facebook group. Ugh—multiple pages, separate groups—how is anyone supposed to keep this stuff straight?! You will have to ask Mark Zuckerburg that; we just do our best to stay on top of it all so we are not left behind! Long story short, the group is more like a forum, managed and driven by its members (currently 630), whereas the two pages mentioned above are where we (the dealer that you LIKED) post regular updates and information. Try to think of it like this, you LIKE pages similar to being someone’s friend but you JOIN groups to become an active member of that group.

That’s all for Facebook, but did you know Bob’s also hosts its own YouTube Channel? The foundation is built and we have been loading videos periodically over the years. Our goal for 2014 is to start loading videos created at Bob’s on a more regular basis, but for now click here to subscribe and as videos are uploaded you will be notified.

How about instagram…do you have an account? Bob’s does! It is the newest addition to our online presence and so far we are loving it. Pictures speak a thousand words, especially in this industry so please be sure to tag us #bobsbmwmoto next time you find yourself posting a great picture you snapped while on the road or off-the-road!

Next on our social media to-do list is LinkedIn! Once we are set up and ready to get linked in with you, we will let you know!
