It is with great regret that Art & Lyn have closed the doors of Country Rode. We were unable to find a willing buyer to take on the BMW franchise. It is time for us, at 76, to retire, enjoy riding and other pursuits. Owning Country Rode for 20 years has been a fun, exciting and challenging adventure. We love having been able to share the passion of riding with you and thank you for being our customers. We will miss you and hope to see you out enjoying your bikes or scooters.
Meet the owners, Lyn and Art Elting
Art was a long time businessman in the automotive industry and is a retired CPA. Lyn was a professional in the health care industry and she is also a driving force in the business here at Country Rode Motowerks. In 1998, they decided it was time the Rochester area had a BMW Motorcycle Dealership, adding Vespa/Piaggio Motor Scooters in 2005 and ZERO electric motorcycles in 2013 to offer more options to those wanting to drive 2-wheeled vehicles. Art and Lyn are also members of and support the local Finger Lakes BMW Club and the BMW Finger Lakes Riders' Association
