By | 2015-04-15T14:55:07+00:00 October 21st, 2011|J&P Team Members|

Most of our Meet the Team introductions have been with J&P staff members who have been with us a long time. Today, we’re changing that up a bit in order to fill you in on two of the newer members of our team. These two gentlemen joined us within the last nine months and both guys are sharp as tacks and equally fun to work with.

Duane (Bud) Probus is a recent graduate of the Motorcycle Mechanics Institute (Phoenix) Harley and Kawasaki program. James Dean — that’s right, James Dean — is a graduate of Wyo Tech’s American Motorcycle Institute (Florida) Harley program.

308-699Motorcycle Jacket Buyers Guide

Here at J&P we’re passionate about riding and with that passion comes lots of knowledge surrounding gear, specifically jackets. Our team’s jacket collection includes everything from high-tech textile to traditional leather and vintage biker-wear (also known as jackets some have owned since the beginning of time).

We are firm believers that a biker can never have too many jackets and specific jackets for extreme riding conditions are a must! The motorcycle jacket is our second most prized possession and should be chosen carefully.

Justin Barcia Scrub (use this)It’s time to step out of our usual V-Twin cruiser niche and take a look at another aspect of the motorcycling universe. Last weekend I went to the AMA Monster Energy Supercross in Atlanta, Georgia. This is a traveling circus that crisscrosses the country for 16 weeks culminating in the season finale in Las Vegas.
