Hey ya`ll, my name is Phillip Baldwin. I am somewhat ‘north’ of 55 (years that is!) . I have been in sales and sales management for the best part of 40 years. I am not originally from Texas, but as they say `I got here as quick as I could’ - almost 30 years ago.
As a kid I was enthralled with motorcycles and in the mid 60`s owned. at different times, a Honda s-65, Honda s-90, CB 450 and a BSA Lightning 650.. I worked summers for a motorcycle, marine, ski-doo, chainsaw store in Sault Ste Marie, Ontario. And that “sank” the hook as they say. When I started my career, I stopped riding until 1989.
In 1988 I got divorced and replaced my ex wife with a 1989 Harley Davidson 883 Sportster. This under-powerd, vibrating, vile handling, could-not-stop, high maintenance motorcycle was just like being married again!!
Since then I have had the pleasure and good fortune of owning over 30 motorcycles in groups of one or two and sometimes three. You know the `drill` - I love this bike, I can`t live without it, I`ll never get rid of it , until the next machine comes along and steal`s my heart, yada,yada. I currently have a “two at a time limit” rule.
The Harley dealer made the mistake of selling me a Buell in 1994 which spelled the end of my fascination with Harleys and started me down the road of `performance road bikes`. After about 3 weeks with the Buell I traded for a DucatI 916 and never looked back.
The last 20 or so motorcycles I have owned since 1995 have come from my friends at BMW Motorcycles North Dallas. The list runs like this: Bimota -1, DucatI -3, Triumph -2, Moto Guzzi -1, MV Agusta -2, and BMW -14.
These great people, know what they sell, how to service and recommend the parts and accessories that make sense or make you happy or both [my case]. If you are into all out performance they know how to, make it work and lighten your bank account, trust me!!
My current bikes are a 2007 BMW R 1200S sport bike with good touring capabilities, and an incredible 2007 DucatI 1098S, that makes no sense other than to `stun` you with its outrageous `superbike` performance and `Italian styling`.
So, if you are looking for your first bike , an additional bike or your 33rd bike. Give this great team at BMW Motorcycles North Dallas an opportunity to meet your needs….you will not be disappointed.
Yes, my wonderful wife since the middle 90`s put`s up with me and my passion (I think she’s a keeper!).
Ps. This dealership doesn’t sell chain saws ....
