Heritage Model Specialist / RETIRED!
In the mid ‘60’s, I became fascinated with motorcycles and bought two basket cases, proceeding to build one functioning motorcycle from all of the parts, which I rode for a couple of years. Then came a new British twin, which soon became apparent was not going to fulfill the promise of long distance touring. A new BMW R60-2 was purchased in the summer of 1967, and I’ve been hooked ever since. I became interested in off-road riding in the late ‘60’s, competing in Enduros (including the Jack Pine), then motocross (remember the Coal Creek Raceway?). In 1972 I founded BMW of Denver, and have been here ever since, working in every phase of the dealership, continuing on in the service department as Heritage Technician, nonpareil.

BMW Certified Technician. Out of 100’s of applicants Tara was one of only EIGHT technicians at MMI (Motorcycle Mechanics Institute) to be accepted into the BMW STEP program.
