It all started out about 13 years ago in 1992 when I was offered a job in South America working for a large consumer products importer. Since I had a degree in marketing and was a native, it pretty much got me qualified for the job. Traveling all over as a sales rep and importing motorcycles as a part-time job, I became very familiar with motorcycles the US had never seen like the Honda Africa Twin 750, Yamaha Super Tenere 750, Kawasaki KLE, Zanella Patagonia and Suzuki DR800 BIG. Then through one of my sources in motorcycle importation, I met someone in the accessory business. They offered me a job and as a learning experience, I accepted through which I was involved in working with a group of a dedicated motorcyclist with the latest products on the market back then. Two years later in 1994 my contract expired with the importer and the economy was starting to plummet, so I decided to return to the US.
Being an active rider since the age of 15 with my first bike (1984 Honda XL200R) the South American experience had made me realize the large market of great motorcycles and accessories this country was missing out on. After traveling through Argentina’s mountain regions on a 1993 Honda Dominator, a.k.a. NX 650, I was nostalgic about these kinds of bikes and headed out to purchase one here. In 1997 after 3 years I got my hands on a nice 1988 NX with 5900 miles. Threw a couple of maps on the table and carried out some trips. 11 months later I purchased a beautiful 1989 Honda Transalp with 5200 miles. As I started riding more and more and headed out to places, other riders were very curious about these bikes and actual owners were always lacking accessories and equipment for their trips. As I remember, once it took me about 2 months of phone calls and emails just to purchase 2 accessories from 2 different dealers. After this I said to myself; “this is crazy!!”. Living in the US and not being able to get what you needed was absurd. So I contacted my old friends down south and started purchasing things for my self I lacked on my trips. As I met other riders, I saw there was an interest and also a possible future market. Some of my friends in South America had become distributors in Europe, making things a lot smoother for even better accessories. In 1997 I began importing items from Europe and exporting to South and Central America supplying touring companies, dealers and small shops. As the economy had its ups and downs in those areas diversification of my clientele became more of a national atmosphere. In 2000, I purchased a rundown local accessory shop and it was a whole new quest. After a year of business, going to bike shows and rallies with 10,000 + miles of touring, I realized the sport touring, and adventure touring market could use more support so I established Adventure Moto. Today Adventure Moto is not just an "Adventure Touring" supplier, it is a full retail store proving for all segments of motorcycling such as track racing, sportbikes, cruisers, street, motocross, enduro, ATV/UTV, scooter, standard & choppers, and personal watercraft.
