WOW! It's hard to believe that it's been since November since we've made a blog post. Time has sure been zooming by! If you haven't been by the shop in awhile, we invite you to stop in to have a look - so much has changed in the past few months. One recent change that we are excited to announce, is the newest addition to our family.
MEET MARTIN(pronounced Mar-Teen)
Martin has been wrenching on bikes here for a little over a month now and we couldn't be happier! Dave has mentioned on numerous occasions that when it comes to repair work, Martin reminds him of himself, when he was a young lad (and trust me...that was a LONG time ago!)
He is currently working towards his Motorcycle/Motorsport Mechanic Certification. Trust us though...he's a natural! He spent many years working with his dad buying, repairing, building and flipping scooters and he's resurrected a couple of Motorcycles for his own personal use.
The very first one being A Yamaha Midnight Maxim, which came in a box. Talk about vision - you don't get to meet many people nowadays who can say they've had their go at a basket case! Although he still has the Yamaha - you'll most likely find him riding his Chopped out Honda Goldwing, which was not in running/road worthy condition when he got it either. So there ya go Goldwing Guys...we've got an expert in-house!
Get to know Martin better Q & A
1. What motivates you to be into Motorcycle Repair?
I just like working on Bikes. Seriously though, I have always liked working on engines and when I was younger, I hoped to become a Motorcycle Mechanic.
2. What do you like most about working at Yankee Dave's Motorsports?
It's easy going, relaxed atmosphere and I love that I've got my own space here.
3. What's your dream project?
I would love to have a customer come in with a frame and ask me to build them their dream bike from the frame up.
If you've been to the shop, you've most likely seen this face hanging around! Michelle is the techie geek, always working behind the scenes to make sure that the Yankee (Dave) can spend as much time doing what he loves - and for those unsure of what exactly that is.....it's Working on Bikes of course!
Michelle is the Gal to talk to! whether you're wanting to schedule an appointment, pay your bill or in search of that special part online.
When not in the shop - you'll most likely find her riding alongside Yankee Dave on her cute little Pink bike!
Dave is the head mechanic and founder of Yankee Dave's Motorsports. Why not him...I mean he's being doing this for more than half of his life already!
When it comes to motorcycle repair work, Dave is on point and pays attention to details. His wife calls him the motorcycle whisperer because he is able to just "know" what the bike needs.
When he's not tinkering, you can find him exploring the landscape from a two wheeled perspective.
