"let all those who love me follow me"

Postby Georgeinva » Wed Oct 18, 2017 4:29 pm

As some of you know I have been looking for a new space for several years. It looks like my quest is near an end. I am in the final stages of purchasing a building. The building is located south of Warrenton VA. More details will follow as the process moves along.
Along with the move I will be changing my name to Gridlock Motors. The name change is for two reasons 1) since taking on Ural service, Beemers Uber Alles seems a bit unrepresentative of my business. 2) You would not believe how many people call thinking I am Uber ride share.

Congrats. Even though it's slightly farther away for us "inside the beltway" denizens. Other the other hand, we get to ride farther...if the bike's roadworthy, that is.

Congratulations on finding a new location. Sorry you will be a little farther but 29 miles from my home is not bad. I hope you have all the space for the Urals. Will the factory follow BMW's lead and make you hang up banners and video monitors? #-o

By the way, I need to Uber to the airport tomorrow. Send a car at 4:00 am. :lol:

No Ural want dealers to be individualists.

Yes one that will make sense to anyone who lives in the area, the other only to a few who "came of age" in the late 80's.

Easy one is; the greater DC area is know for two things (no not crime and cherry blossoms) traffic and politics, both seem to be in constant gridlock.

The not so obvious one you will have to do some Googling on.

It is about equidistant for the Manassas and Fredericksburg stations. So in other words no.

As of 12/29, I (that is to say my bank) am now the owner of 7155 Opal
rd, Warrenton VA 20186. It will be a few months before the shop is fully
moved in. The plan is to start moving after the needed improvements are
made. During the move I will be splitting my time between the two shops.
At this point there are no plans to be closed for an extended time. The
Manassas location will remain open and fully functional until at least
2/24/2018.
I will to my best to keep updating you as the process moves forward.

Please remember to call before coming to either location to make sure I’m there.
