J&P Employees Share Resolutions for 2012

January 1, 2012 | By: J&P Cycles

Patrick Garvin, one of our more prolific bloggers and motorcycle tech experts grabbed a microphone and wandered around what he calls the “belly of the beast” here at J&P Cycles, asking a sampling of employees for their New Year’s resolutions.

Were this a bank or financial institution, you would expect those resolutions to center around balancing a checkbook or putting more into savings. But J&P Cycles sells motorcycle parts — about 130,000 of them at last count — and our employees seem to have a common theme when it comes to resolutions.

And that theme is this: Fix the bike that’s in the garage. For example, senior technician and J&P … Continue Reading

Happy Holidays

December 25, 2011 | By: Zach Parham

So far this winter, we’ve still got tree leaves covering the Iowa highways instead of snow. Nevertheless, the opportunity to spend time on two wheels is rapidly drawing to a close and our thoughts turn instead to winter projects and the hustle and bustle of the holiday season.

Here at J&P Cycles, we’re constantly inundated with hot deals and promotions, all centered around the after-holiday sales. So what I wanted to do was just take a deep breath and pause to reflect for a moment on what this season is really all about.

Help Celebrate Veterans Day This Year — on Nov. 11, of Course

November 11, 2011 | By: Scott Holton

On the 11th day, of the 11th month of the year 2011 we celebrate an event that occurred on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918. This was the time the armistice between Germany and the Allied nations went into effect, thus ending the war to end all wars. It was called the “Great War” because nobody could fathom a fiercer conflict. 

On Nov. 11 the following year, Armistice Day was commemorated for the first time. In 1919, President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed the day should be “filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and … Continue Reading

Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day

March 17, 2011 | By: Jason Hayes

With spring almost here, the celebration of St. Patrick’s Day brings food, friends, and a few pints together to reflect Irish heritage. There are almost 37 million Americans that have Irish roots but this holiday is not only celebrated by the Irish.  Anybody that likes a good time and a little green beer can partake in the party.
