Another Supporter Signs on to Help Out With Our Little Adventure! Welcome Aboard Martin Motorsports!

Boyertown, PA's only Hodaka dealer (ok April Fool's - there aren't ANY dealers for new Hodakas and there haven't been since about 1978) .......anyway Martin Motorsports of Boyertown, PA has now joined us in support of our little adventure ride to Oregon. What interest would a full line Triumph, Kawasaki, Yamaha and Suzuki dealer have in a jaunt like this? Simple, it's owned and operated by folks who love everything motorcycle! Remember, this is the same dealership that just over a month ago was shut down by owners Dennis and Jan Martin on a Spring Saturday in order to host an indoor vintage bike show The Modern Classics....check that out by clicking HERE . How are they helping us? A couple of ways to be sure. First, their parts department is a great source for all the standard cycle bits like chains, sprockets, light bulbs, tires and such. Secondly, we're now going to be able stage all our spare parts (the unwieldy ones we don't want to carry with us) at Martin's. Having parts staged at a place that has daily UPS and FedEx shipping and where knowledgeable folks can grab the correct part out of a box (or off a bike!) is a pretty nice travel insurance policy. Don't ya think?

Better yet, Martin Motorsports is now going to be the "official" starting point for our ride! Throughout the riding season Martin hosts a monthly event called "Second Sunday." On the second Sunday of each month they open up the store and host an event for local riders. There is typically food, frivolity, special prices on parts and accessories and just general hanging out with lots of bench racing. Seems that the second Sunday in June this year is also our appointed departure date. More details to come but the current plan is for us to lay down a cloud of two-stroke oil smoke and head on out about 9:30am that Sunday, June 12th. Here's hoping a few friends, both new and old can join us that Sunday morning and wish us bon voyage!
