Preparations for the 2013 Open House Rally are hitting serious “ramp-up” mode around here. We’re not quite at “fever pitch” yet, but that’s just around the corner. It’s a lot of work, but well worth it. I’m looking forward to being able to interact face-to-face with our customers as are our vendors. It’s a great time – I hope to see a bunch of you there. I’ll be primarily in the Showroom and Extended Showroom areas. Stop by and say “hey.”

Today’s blog is to introduce the J&P Cycles returns department to you. This group is made up of six ladies who truly are the muscle behind the scenes at J&P Cycles. Their contributions keep our business running smoothly. Let’s start with the department head, Jessie.

Initially a data entry clerk, she moved into our purchasing department where she was the point of contact for vendor returns (which she still does today).

Winter was a long one – for sure! For those of you who have had to sit and look at your motorcycle from the shop stool in the garage, you may have been taking mental notes of the spring and summer to come: where to go, when to go and who might be coming with you have crossed your mind while patiently waiting to pull the bike back onto the highway. It will be a great summer if you just let it. Be patient, relax when you … Continue Reading

It’s always a feather in your cap as a writer to know that your submissions are read and taken seriously. As a technical writer, it is very gratifying to know that you helped others out. In the past few months, I’ve written a couple of articles detailing issues that are possible with the cam chain tensioners in our beloved Twin Cam engines. These articles have been some of the most viewed posts in the history of the J&P Cycles blog. That in itself is very humbling, and I would like to thank all the … Continue Reading
Here at J&P, we are always looking for new, innovative ways to interact with our customers. Over the years we have come to the realization that getting to know our customers is not only fun, but it’s important, too. There are so many companies out there who provide a variety of services, but never really take the time to get to know their customers. We don’t ever want to become one of those companies, so finding new ways to interact is something we get excited about.
Recently the J&P marketing department sat down and held a brainstorming session to come up with a program that would benefit our customers, … Continue Reading
