He is probably referring to BMW Motorcycles of Detroit, they lost their building lease.

Supposedly they are re-opening in the future in Rochester Hills, MI, 48307 but there is lots of speculation & rumor about what is actually happening. Any move/reopening probably needs the BMW mothership blessings & approval.

They do have a contact number so not totally dead yet.

Hello All,

The last update I saw posted on there facebook page stated that Mid Sept. opening. Rode by last week and it still looks like a car dealership body shop.
It was kinda an odd closing no real notice, just one day the doors were closed, I guess if you had a bike in for service they might have let you know , But I went to the dealer for some parts the week they closed and nothing was said at that time, so until the mother ship ( BMWNA )gives there blessing who knows.

2001 R1100rt 34,000 miles and climbing fast..
1996 R1100rt 132,000 miles and still running strong.

Sorry about the invisibility folks. It's a result of the move to a new server, combines with the version of UBB Threads that we're using. The guys who are smarter than I are working on this.

Actually, I think he just forgot what he wanted to say. Usually posts with the "disappearing" text problem can be seen using the "Quick Quotes" button. This one just comes up blank:
