    Where to service in/near Madison WI

    Greetings!
    Sadly, my go-to dealership -- Mischler's BMW in Beaver Dam, WI -- had to close its doors at the end of December. Art Mischler told me that, between the pandemic and the corporate demand for dealerships to remodel in 2021, he just could not justify staying open. Are there any South Central Wisconsin folks who can recommend a knowledgeable mechanic in the Madison WI area to service my 2015 R1200RT if needed? I intend to go to Cyclewerks in Barrington IL for the big stuff, but am also hoping to have a resource closer by for the unexpected. I am not a big DIY fan, though my brother (also an MOA member with a R1200RS) says it is easy to learn with all the videos out there! Thanks in advance!

    Welcome to the forum! Are you a member of one of the Wisconsin clubs? Check out the MOA main page by clicking on bmwmoa.org in the upper left. Then go to Resources > Chartered Clubs. In that section, you can scroll down to Wisconsin and check out the websites...maybe there's someone you can contact with your question. You could also check the Anonymous Book/App and find someone to talk to in your local area...get their feeling of what's available.

    New dealer in Milwaukee?

    I was just on the BMW website and searched for a dealer by me and this came up. https://www.bmwmotorcycles.com/en/pu...E&gclsrc=aw.ds

    I called Moto Union and they are going to be a BMW dealer soon. Looks like you will no longer have to drive to IL or Green Bay to have your major / warranty work done.

    I just picked up my 2015 RT from Big Mikeís in Beaver Dam, WI where they completed the 12K service. Jason Webber (service manager at Mischlerís until they closed last fall) is running the shop. He brought the BMW Certified tech and the Harley tech with him and everything about the facility is top notch. Spread the word! 920 219-9964.
