If it is the very same Todos Santos it's not there,very small village few tourist and thats about it.I rode from end to end back and forth side to side into and out of and no such place the next stop heading out of Todos was Cabo.I even asked a local fellow and he had no knowledge of it,he was on a KLR650.
No matter,we are now in Mazatlan heading inland now so i'm sure to find one on the mainland,preferably not Mexico city though.

I realise that this is too late but anyway...

There WAS a BMW dealer just outside Cabo San Lucas - on the road to Todos Santos. But when I was there just over a year ago (with a flat tyre) it had already closed down.

Todos Santos is a lovely little place - I was there for two weeks but there is definitely no BMW dealer there.

However I did go to the one in Mexico City and they were super friendly and helpful. Changed my tyres and didn't charge me labour as they were so exscited about my trip! I can highly recommend them.
