I am somewhat new to the area, and one of the things I like to do in a new area is to visit all the local motorcycle shops. So, predictably, I ended up at Lone Star Triumph. I must admit that I was a little bit apprehensive when first entering the shop because I had heard that BMW dealers tended to be unfriendly. I am happy to report that this dealer does not follow that trend. The people there were extremely helpful and knowledgeable about their products. They are happy to answer questions and give recommendations, or to let you browse without breathing down your neck. \r
I am 6 foot 9 inches tall, so understandably gear can be hard to come by. Imagine my surprise when they not only were able to recommend which brands were likely to fit, but they actually had several options in stock that I could try on. I was floored. I had previously had a hard time finding people who knew what gear was available in tall sizes, much less actually having it in stock for me to try on.\r
Robert is the salesperson I have dealt with most, and he has been extremely helpful and friendly every time I've been in the store. He was willing to special order a pair of boots in for me in size 16 (and they fit great btw.) He even had a smile for me when I walked into the store 20 minutes before closing (I greatly apologize for my poor timing:) and had the exact jacket I was looking for in stock and in my size!\r
To top everything off their prices and selection are quite good.\r
I will go out of my way to purchase all of my gear from Lone Star, as well as sending anyone I can to them. I can't say enough good about the people. They have my business for life.
Pros: Great gear selection, highly knowledgeable staff
Cons: Now that I've found a place that has the right sizes in stock, my wallet is a bit thinner... :)
