Established: 22 March 2008

After saying we should open our own bike shop we decided to take the plunge and do it.

After weeks of preparing the workshop and showroom, surrounded by friends and family that had provided words of encouragement (and free labour!), V Duo Motorcycles finally opened the doors to the world on Saturday 22 March 2008.

The day was such a success with faces from the past turning up along with the new faces of our potential future customers.

Everyone commented on how good the place looked and those who saw it prior to decorating couldn’t believe the transformation.

So here we are doing it for ourselves and loving it!

Over the years I have been fortunate enough to find myself in the right place, at the right time attaining a wealth of knowledge about some of the world’s most iconic motorcycles – motorcycles that were built with passion and I have been taught early in my career by professionals with an ‘old school‘ attitude towards motorcycle mechanics – “If you’re going to do it, then do it properly!” and this is the attitude I strive to retain.
