Gary began his technical motorcycle training when helping out his Dad in the shop after school and at weekends. Formal training began at the age of 16 where Gary worked hard and earned a place in the prestigious Yamaha Technical Guild. Passing training modules for multiple other brands and also achieving MOT tester status puts Gary at the top of his craft with knowledge to rival the best. While Garys' job mostly involves the running of the Motorcycle shop now, you will still find him keeping up with the latest motorcycle technology in the workshop and sharing his knowledge with customers in the shop.
Zoe is the 2nd of the family members to work at the motorcycle shop. Sister to Gary, Zoe works in the office controlling all of the business finances. Starting out at a young age helping in the shop after school and at weekends Zoe would sell parts and accessories advising customers of the best products. Taking a break from the family business Zoe attended college along with numerous financial training courses before returning with her vast knowledge in the role of Finance Director.

Every good salesman knows that you make a friend with your customer before attempting to strike a deal, and there is no exception with Dave. The customers love him and often tell us of his welcoming personality and no pressure sales style when they leave their reviews. Many customers have returned to buy second bikes or upgrade with Dave for that reason too. A great member of our team who works hard to get the best deal for every customer wether they are looking for their first learner legal, or their dream bike.
Jessica is the 4th member of the family to work at the motorcycle shop. Jess joined us after leaving school in the capacity of Saturday Sales Assistant, she also helps out in the holidays too. Helping customers with their choice of clothing and accessories just like her mum Zoe did all those years ago, clearly learning from the pro. Even though Jess is our youngest team member she is mobile on 2 wheels and loves the freedom she gets on her bike.
Our longest serving employee with the most years of experience under his belt, there isn't much that our Rod doesn't know about the mechanics of a motorbike, and what he doesn't know probably isn't worth knowing. An absolute mind of knowledge and information he is the man that can lovingly restore your classic, vintage or retro machine but is equally at home with the modern technology and an MOT tester too. Rod is known to be incredibly thorough with an outstanding record of workmanship. A true master of his craft, they just aren't made like that anymore.
Aidan joined the team in 2016 as a Suzuki apprentice; he has worked hard in his training and can now carry out all levels of servicing along with repairs and diagnostics. Not afraid to try something new Aidan’s modern skills using the latest technologies team up perfectly with senior technician, Rods “old school” experience to create an unrivalled force as Salisbury’s only factory trained road bike dealer.
