He's loved motorcycles since before he could remember, his grandmother calling him Michael motorcycle as a toddler. He got his first ride on a motorcycle at the age of 8, a Yamaha 350 that his dad rode on the back of to hold up when he stopped. He was immediately at home on a two wheels. He got his first motorcycle the following year, a 1974 Honda XR75, and the competitive spirit grew from there. He owned and raced dirt bikes until the age of 36 when he bought his first street bike - a Suzuki GSX 600 Katana which he tried to transform into the fastest Katana on the planet. He took to the street quickly and soon bought his first real sport bike, a GSXR750, and soon after found himself at his first track day. On the track he only knew one speed. Flat out. This led to some real racing and after 3 years, 18 podiums and 2 race wins he was quite successful, scoring a WERA championship in 2004 and runner up in a National Championship that same year. After a couple of years in the expert classes and in need of new machinery, he hung up the race leathers after accomplishing more than he ever dreamed. He has been selling motorcycles for about 12 years now and really enjoys meeting riders both new and experienced, and sharing stories that we as riders all can relate to.
"I could retire from the industry one day and know I did what I truly loved...motorcycling." - Mike

Phil Porritt - Technician
Phil is another one that has been around the Motorcycle industry for quite some time now. We joke that Phil has forgotten more about motorcycles than the rest of us will ever learn. He has been professionally wrenching on bikes since before some of us here at the shop were born and has done everything from factory maintenance to building and setting up race bikes and engines. Any tech that has multiple stethascopes in his box is usually qualified and is likely to have come up the old-school way with lots of real world experience.
