    I've gotta say that Mike put together a nice store. I picked-up some t-shirts from him last week. They have a good selection of riding gear if you find yourself needing something when you come to the area from out of town.

    Cherie's got a new toy! She loves being able to flat foot it on the little Honda. We're going riding along Citco Creek on Monday. Hopefully the weather will be OK and the temp not too bad.

    ROK Straps are in! Tom thinks these things are the best thing since sliced bread.

    I think we're going to add a few Klim dirt bike gear next.

    I have to admit the Hi-viz yellow Adj Pak straps are way cool!

    Best of luck...you are in a great area. Be careful of using a likeness like Steve McQueen on a web site...the owners of his name can come after you and could sue. I suggest you find a way to do mail/web ordering as otherwise you are probably not going to have the volume or will have to raise your prices. Good sales via web doesn't cost much and it can pay off big for you, especially during the slow season.

    Here's to your success!

    We're going to do a make-over on the web site very soon. Just waiting for my son to get here from school. I'm counting down the days.

    The stores going to get a face lift too. We need to fit more gear in here!

    We just added Bodz Technical Moto Shorts and Short Tee's and Sokz Hi-Tech motorcycle socks.

    [​IMG]

    Thanks for all the positive comments guys. Tom & I really appreciate it.

    There's so much gear we want to add; &, a real advertising budget would be nice too. It's just a matter of shallow pockets. We pay for everything as we go along.

    We're going to add Klim very shortly.

    Here's our thoughts on starting off:

    -Dakar Pants in gray, every waist size & most Tall sizes

    -Mojave Jersey's in every size, maybe a mixture of colors

    -Inferno wind shirt in every size

    -Dakar gloves in every size, maybe a mixture of colors

    -Nac Pak's

    I had wanted to carry the Revolt pants; however, they don't make tall sizes.

    Any input guys?

    Mike's got a great store here! Not only did he have the exact Olympia jacket I've been trying to find all over the southeast, he shipped it to me (hell, it arrived back at the house before I did!) at no cost!

    I loaded up on ADV stickers, got a Tellico Motorcycle Outfitter's T-Shirt (one of my new favorites!), and got directions from Mike to a deli/bakery down the street that was another highlight of my Spring Blue Ridge Ride.

    Definitely worth a visit when you're in the area, it'll put your local bike shop's inventory of accessories and apparel to shame!

    Thanx, Mike!

    you got a look at my Klim Dakar pants. I am loving them. I've crashed a few times in them and they're holding up very well. They will be a good addition. The thing about Klim is they're hard to find in store, so you having them will be great :D

    Mike, great to hear you are gonna carry Klim. I wish you'd get a few of those helmets they make now, as well as the new in-the-boot pants. I have a pair of Dakars and love them but sometimes wish my pants tucked inside. I need a new pair of gloves so I'll put it off til you get a shipment in. Keep us updated! Have not found a place yet near ATL that sells Klim...I bought mine in San Fran this past winter. :eek1

    Thanks for all the business & nice remarks! We really appreciate it.

    Klim shipped about 2/3's of what I ordered. Most of the gloves and pants are here. No Jersey's were shipped and only a couple of the Tall size pants. The rest of my order is about 2 weeks away they said.

    We're going to install 2 new wall racks on Sunday & shuffle merchandise around. The shop's starting to look over full. Got another Wolfman shipment this week too.

    Tom & I will be at the BMW Xplor Jimmy Lewis event next weekend. Cherie's going to be watching the shop for me. While the kids are going to run the ice cream shop. That should be interesting. Anyway, I'll be trying out a new pair of KLIM pants. Maybe a jersey too if they come in before we leave. I'll try to take some pictures while we're at class. Meanwhile, here are a few shots of cool bikes that have stopped by lately.
