Heritage Model Specialist
In the mid 60s, 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 Ive been hooked ever since. I became interested in off-road riding in the late 60s, 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 100s of applicants Tara was one of only EIGHT technicians at MMI (Motorcycle Mechanics Institute) to be accepted into the BMW STEP program. The program is so prestigious that you have to be invited by the instructors to interview for the opportunity to enter into the rigorous nine week training course. The training consists of ALL courses needed to become a BMW Certified Master Technician. She believes every day is an opportunity to learn something new and credits the experience and help of the team at BMW of Denver with making her a better technician. When pursuing her dream of moving to Denver and working at BMWOD Tara unfortunately had to give up her Yamaha V-star Custom. Replacing it is only a matter of time. When not at the store Tara can be found spending time with her partner Tracie and their two dogs Malakai and Bessa.
