You can scratch off Fast Trix in Tallahassee fl.  He (owner) pulled a fast trick and ran off somewhere. But, he did leave behind a stelvio, v7classic, and lots of goodies. I'm waiting for the auction

MPH Cycles of Houston is conspicuous by it's absence. Did I miss something?

Houston is the nation's fourth largest city.

Come on...someone pick up the franchise, and Guzzi:  treat them well.

Small spelling correction. The shop in Watertown SD is "The Motocycle Shop"  not Motorcycle.

OK, here's something for the interested to chew on...

Here are three points of interest files for you to check and verify - one each in Garmin, TomTom, and TyreToTravel format. I will be working a bit more on these to include the corrections being offered in this thread, and to add phone numbers for those systems that support them as a comment for each POI. Some important notes on how these differ from the source Daniel created:
  • Business names may not match - I've used the business name as it shows on the building and in search engines to make contacting them easier while on the road.
  • Locations may vary somewhat from street addresses provided - if there was a difference between the one in the source list and that published on the business website or verifiable by Google StreetView, I used the one that shows on the business site or verified by photo. The GPS coordinates are moved to where I can best verify the business currently is located.
  • Phone numbers are those published by the business - and may differ from those on the MG website.
Garmin POI file - http://people.delphiforums.com/ITSecurity/Norge/GPS/MGDealers.csv
TomTom POI file - http://people.delphiforums.com/ITSecurity/Norge/GPS/MGDealers.ov2
TyreToTravel POI file - http://people.delphiforums.com/ITSecurity/Norge/GPS/MGDealers.tpf

If you have a Garmin GPS, please let me know if the file loads and displays correctly - I don't currently have a Garmin to test with.

A full version with phone numbers and corrections will be published in a day or two...

Some have asked for the current list in GPX format - here it is: http://people.delphiforums.com/ITSecurity/Norge/GPS/MGDealers.gpx

However, older or cheaper Garmin devices may not support more than 100 waypoints (which this is, barely). Also, in terms of how you might use this with a GPS, having it as a POI file to display or hide as needed is a preferred format. Try this and see if it suits your needs, but the earlier post with the POI file would be my recommendation.

I have apps and converters that use GPX files with thousands of waypoints. No problem.
BTW, your GPX file has route points AND a lot of track for some reason.

Here is a Google map that hopefully anyone can open and export:

Sigh indeed, Montana is at the center of a vast area in the inland northwest with no Guzzi dealer support....   :sad:

The advisory re waypoint limits is a standard warning I give, since many people have rather old GPS units still in use (I still keep one or two of those around myself!).

That GPX came from Tyre, which has a habit of assuming anything with GPX is a route and not just a list. For use, I generally clean them up in Basecamp before I finalize them. These versions are for verification and as noted, will be further modified before being 'finished'.

Thanks for taking time to check them! Input is always welcome...

It's there.  The list (the first post of this thread) shows eight Texas dealers.  The second on the list is Eurosport.  Perhaps you need to press "refresh"?

As a seller of new Guzzi's that's true, but still very active as a Service center for Guzzi's...for that matter, may be worth keeping it on the list until Mike closes shop in the FAR AWAY future I hope!!   :grin: :grin:

You are absolutely correct.  I've added MPH to the list, even if that makes the title slightly in error.  The point of the list is much more for on-the-road help than a source to buy a new Guzzi.

I also re-sorted the list by state and then by city (might make it clearer).

Daniel,
We're no longer a Moto Guzzi dealer.  I think the closest dealer is in
NH, though it may be even further south.
