North Houston BMW / TRIUMPH

I drove by the N-Houston BMW dealer several weeks ago to drool over the speed triple for the hundredth time but to my dismay I found a for lease sign in the front and no one around.
I would have thought that this new addition to The Woodlands would have thrived with all the upper crust that lives out there! Needless to say I was shocked and disappointed, I am not a huge fan of BMW (however the K 1200 R looks and sits very nice) but I am a Triumph junkie and now I have to drive all the way out to Katy or South Houston to day dream. Can anyone shed light on this?
My apologies if this is an old subject.

Dave

Lets just say bad management. When I worked there you could see the ship sinking, Quite a few good people there but you have to have good management skills and knowledge to turn a profit.

I was one of the original employees there.... I will agree with pam... it wasn't necessarily the management as it was the Owner.... he just needs to stick with the construction business...

the GM Brian Creighton was a great guy, I believe he is now the GM of Planet Dodge in Humble


the shop had potential if the owner would have just left his ego out of everything... not that Mark Dooley was a bad guy... just motorcycles weren't his thing

just my .02

Didn't they also own the one on the Beltway & Beechnut? They tried to have a big Grand Opening Event. I went, and nobody even bothered to say hi to me, so I posted my experience on TWT, and got an immediate call from the Manager. I got a free Alpinestar cap out of it. Nevertheless, they closed down soon thereafter.
