Gateway BMW Open House

From Gateway Open House 9_11_2010
Gateway BMW, my local (and the Greatest) BMW dealer had a Open House this weekend, and as they always do, they put on a pretty good show.  Quite the spread of food and drink, the homemade cookies and pie are to die for...  Discounts galore, test rides and door prize's ( I never seem to win anything).  They also had entertainment this year in the form of Chris Teach McNeil, the U.S. Champion Freestyle rider.  Chris just happens to ride BMW motorcycles.  He sure looks like he has fun doing it too.  Oh, just in case you didn't know he has a day job!  He's a Latin teacher...  His web-site says he is a former teacher, but he told us that he now has a couple of employee's who drive his truck around the country and he just fly's in for the shows, that way he can continue to teach.



I thought this would be the time I walked away without spending any money, but it just can't be done.  I bought a chain cleaning brush, maybe you will see it in a future post.  I hope to upload Part 2 of the video by Monday night, so check back on my YouTube Channel.

See You on the Road.

Nice video! I didn't think you coud do those type of moves with a decked out F800GS. I think I remember seeing that bike in Redmond...

Thanks Richard. I believe he was performing at Redmond, hopefully you got to see him first hand. Chris did a great job on the F800GS, but Jean Pierre Goy use to do a lot of the same things on a K1200LT, here is a short clip. Looks like he is still riding doing stunts, but you just don't here about him here in the states.

No, I didn't get to see him perform at Redmond. Too many things going on at the same time....
