Remembering Revard BMW Motorcycles

revardcupHere’s my morning mocha cappuccino salute to the late, lamented Revard BMW Motorcycles in Indianapolis.

Bill Revard and his brothers Jimmy and Charlie opened their dealership on the city’s northeastside, just northeast of the I-465 – I-69 interchange, in the summer of 2000.

The Revard brothers were guests of the Indianapolis BMW Club at our February, 2000, awards banquet and I had the pleasure of giving Bill his first business dollar that evening.

Sadly, Revard BMW went out of business in December, 2004 for a variety of reasons, not the least of which was BMW Motorrad’s bizarre business model.

Bill was a good friend and a great supporter of the club.

If the current Indianapolis BMW motorcycle dealer is even half as good as Bill, the Indianapolis BMW community is very well served.
