I'm posting this for a friend. Dean Lear was the founder of San Jose BMW. Back in the day he did a lot of work with the BMW factory; his team has won at Daytona, he's run at Bonneville, he still provides some unobtainable stuff for various teams via the contacts he's built up over the years, etc. He's the real deal. After selling the business to Chris he moved here to the Phoenix area and then later built a totally off-grid place in Show Low, about ten miles from my place up there. He and Pam got tired of the long winters and moved to Ducktown TN which is about 30 miles from Tail Of The Dragon and 40 miles from Two Wheels of Suches, but Dean will tell you that there are much better roads back there then just the Tail.

Anyhow, he and Pam are getting up in age and want to make one more move that will get them back closer to family and they are looking at Cottonwood AZ which will put them about two hours away from me. Lower elevation than Show Low (so far less snow) and a great medical facility as well.

The ad is posted on ADV at: https://advrider.com/f/threads/meticulous-smokey-mtn-home-with-1032-sq-ft-garage-man-cave.1383472/

Or you can review it on Zillow as well: https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/129-Wren-Ct-Copperhill-TN-37317/80385874_zpid/

I've been there, and Brenda and I spent two nights in the apartment over the garage. I can assure you that everything is just as he describes it in the ad, if not more.

If you've ever considered retiring back to that area of the country or if you have moto friends that already live back there, this just might be the place for you or them. They are in no need or rush to sell, so his price is pretty firm but I think it's worth every penny.

If you're an inmate over at ADV you can ask him any questions directly via that thread, but if not you can post them here and I'll relay it to him.

The photo shows my Wing in the garage and Brenda looking out over the property.

Dean doesn't know I'm posting this part, but here's info from his recent ride report. (just something to help tempt someone reading this)

FYI - Big Bertha is his Harley. This is his 3rd one in the past couple of years and he absolutely loves it. Yes, he still has Beemers in the group as well. Now, after you review the following, can you not picture yourself loving this life? TONS of great roads to ride with little to no traffic to deal with. Beautiful scenery. Quiet. Serene. And if you're a dual sport or dirt bike rider, there are even more great places for you to ride.



This fantastic morning, Sun just coming up, about 59F out air with low humidity and smells fantastic with all the new Green and wild flowers, cloudless sky and Big Bertha III quivering in anticipation. Oh Baby.

Almost impossible for me to stop when in the complete Zen of early morning no traffic perfect weather ride. Surpasses anything the Chamber of Commerce could dream of in their wildest dreams. Finally stopped at a little Church on 60 and took a few snaps.

They served 236 cooked to order lunches yesterday, they expected more today. The food is outstanding, the Hamburgers are 1/2 pounders.

And here's a satellite view of his place. Zoom out from this view and look at the spiderweb of smaller roads just waiting to be ridden by you and your friends.
