Mark bought his first bike at 19, a 1982 Honda CM400T. He quickly graduated to sportbikes, riding a CBR600F Hurricane for a few years before discovering dual sports. He’s owned a variety of bikes, from DR650s, a pair of Honda NX650s, to an R65. These days he rides either a Suzuki VStrom 1000, a Kawasaki Ninja 650, or an Austrian two stroke.
As the former Rallymaster of the Rally in the 100 Acre Woods, Mark knows the gravel roads of the Ozarks almost as well as our own Tom Huff. Many of our customers will also remember Mark from the motorcycle camping seminars he developed during his tenure with REI, a major outdoor retailer. “I’ve ridden with Honz, Jeff, and Shannon here for years.” Mark says. “The people are what make this shop so authentic and special.”
