    Question which dealer/city?

    I also have a related thread in "campfire," ( titled 'MY canada w/question at end') which explains my situ in more detail, but here's my Q for you western staters:

    If you were considering shipping your bike from Chicago to any of the following cities; Fresno, Boise, Vancouver,BC, Edmonton, or Calgary, to which dealer would you ship based on helpfulness, courtesy, willingness to be generally helpful to someone who's not likely to ever be a big$ customer?

    Here's another: If I manage to sell my R11RT before I leave Chicago in March, and fly into any of those cities...I'll travel to each in turn, where would you look for a reliable used Jap bike to ride thru the Canadian Rockies thru the summer and early fall?

    Riding from Chicago to anywhere out there is out of the question. I must first fly to San Antonio and then must fly to Fresno.

    Go ahead, opine!

    If you were to ship to Calgary, I'd skip the dealer and talk to Dave at Anderweks. His is an independent BMW shop here in Calgary where you'll likely get a more personal level of service for what you want to do.

    I can't wait to retire and have a fixed income. The one I have now is always broke.

    I've heard good things about Shail's in the Vancouver suburbs:
