Bruce Rossmeyer's Harley-Davidson To Close In Ft Lauderdale

By | General Posts

Stung by a slow market for motorcycles, Bruce Rossmeyer's Harley-Davidson dealership is closing its Fort Lauderdale store and consolidating that operation into its Sunrise location.


The move will mean a loss of 22 jobs, a top executive said.
The Rossmeyer group shut a Pompano Beach store in 2010 and later sold that site.
The consolidation comes as motorcycle sales in the United States only slowly recover from the 2008 recession. That contrasts with auto sales, which have been growing at a fast clip from their depths.
"You need cars. Motorcycles are luxury items, more aligned with yachts," said Jeff Cheek, general manager of Bruce Rossmeyer's Harley-Davidson dealerships in Broward County. "We have not had as much of a bounce back as the auto industry has had."

With a little help from a willing former owner and a commercial fisherman he does business with, a New Ulm man with a passion for motorcycles recently picked up a bike like he's never seen before.

Ron Miller of New Ulm – who hauls live fish to the Asian market in New York City for a living – was recently contacted by Ken Seemann, a Dassel commercial fisherman whom he buys fish from.

Seemann said he snagged something unusually heavy on Nov. 29 while seining (using a fishing net that hangs vertically in the water) for carp on the south side of Big Swan Lake in Dassel.

Motorcycle Poetry

By | General Posts

 

Check out this video from : My first short film I made for film school. Motorcycles are a big part of life. I wanted to make a film to show how intimate we get with the road. Most people ride to get away from the daily grind and be alone. Even if you are riding with a friend, your own mind is what you have a conversation with. Others like to just take a drive in their car, but once you ride a motorcycle, the open road is never the same.
