We are motorcyclists first. Not business people or marketing gurus. We ride, and we enjoy everything motorcycle. We’d rather meet other riders and share our experiences, either bench racing or out in the motorcycling world, than anything else. When we acquired Sportbikes4hire.com in the spring of 2016, we found ourselves not only servicing the fleet, but helping local riders who needed tires and service more than ever before. There was a need, and we enjoyed filling it.
Our need to order repair parts and our knowledge of the parts business made us find ourselves getting parts for customers, so here we are doing it online again, supplying quality parts and service for riders.
On days we are not riding you can usually find us spending time in the shop or riding around in the truck with our three Great Danes Easton, Dexter and Huxley. They enjoying sleeping first and foremost but they also enjoy meeting new people (and treats!)
I have been riding longer than I sometimes care to admit.
I’m a retired U.S. Navy Gas Turbine Engineer, was an MSF instructor for nearly 10 years, a demo rider for Aprilia and ran my own motorcycle parts business for the past 10 years. I love all things mechanical, but motorcycling has been with me the longest and is ingrained in me.
I believe in always riding to improve your skills and I enjoy meeting riders and sharing our passions for bikes and riding. I think that the best part of any motorcycle related business is the riders and I’ve been fortunate enough to make friends with many of you over the years.
I have been riding for over half of my life. I was born and raised in Knoxville, TN and although I have traveled all over the world the beautiful sights and amazing roads have given me no reason to leave this area.
When it comes to motorcycles I love riding them, working on them and modifying them. You will always find at least one bike in the shop being restored to it’s former glory.
One of my favorite things about motorcycles is the community. I love spending a lazy weekend meeting new people at Two Wheels of Suches or over at Deals Gap. I have met some incredible people I now call friends and am looking forward to meeting many more.
Our goal is to provide our customers with the best possible service, parts and accessories, and to treat fellow riders like riders, not numbers passing through our system and leaving money. The way we do business is more time and work, but it’s the right way to take care of your needs when you’re looking for quality parts and service.
