For the past 5 years, Bob’s BMW has been closed on both Thursday and Friday to focus more on the true spirit of Thanksgiving—our families, friends, and riding motorcycles—instead of hitting the shopping malls (#optoutsideon2wheels). Hosting our Black Friday group ride and lunch with the 40 or so people who join us each year has been a lot of fun, and the festive atmosphere at the dealership on Saturday has been the best way to kick off the holiday season. So we’re sticking with those plans this year, but with a few adjustments.
Bob and others on the Bob’s team will still be riding on Friday, but we will not be leading a group ride. Who knows what roads we’ll be enjoying? We encourage you to explore some beautiful roads on your own and enjoy smiles and miles on two wheels or three or even four.
Eventually you’ll want to grab some food and if you’re in our general area, consider joining Bob and others around 12-12:30 for lunch at Cured in downtown Columbia, MD*. We will be seated separately but some conversation will be possible—Cured is ready for as many of us that can make it, all with proper spacing and ventilation. And there’s a huge covered parking garage where your bike or car will be safe and with more fresh air should you wish to kick tires after lunch.
The dealership will be open on Saturday with while-you-wait service, a showroom full of great new and used bikes, the best selection of great riding gear, useful accessories for all models, and casual wear in the region. And yes, stuff will be on sale including our legendary online temptations.
We continue to follow all safety protocols and our facility is protected by a UVGI air purification system, so you can count on a safe shopping experience at Bob’s. To ensure everyone gets the best possible customer care, we still encourage making an appointment in advance to talk seriously about motorcycle purchases (selling and trades too) and head-to-toe professional riding gear fittings.
*If you choose to join us for lunch, please let the Cured staff know in advance by calling them up at (667) 786-7111 and letting them know if you’re 1 person or more and that you’re part of the Bob’s BMW family. This way, as our ungroup grows, they can sit us adjacently enhancing our collective fun. Please wear a face covering in all areas of the restaurant unless eating/drinking. And, anticipating that you’ll enjoy the food and service, please be generous with your gratuity; these past few months have been very hard for restaurants and their staff.
All of us at Bob’s BMW wish you and yours a Safe and Happy Thanksgiving!
