J&P Interviews Our First ‘Industry Icon’

We are an industry filled with interesting people. And in our recent travels to dealer shows and industry events in Cincinnati and Indianapolis, we have had the opportunity to chat with some of the motorcycle industry’s true innovators. These folks were here in the beginning, or they greatly improved what was introduced in the beginning.

Their designs and improvements to every part on our bikes have resulted in standards that continue to make motorcycle riding the highlight of many of our lives. As a result of these industry giants, we decided it was time to formally interview some of them. So welcome to the first of a series of videos that we’re calling our “Industry Icons.”

And first out of the gate is none other than Bert Baker of Baker Drivetrain. No one optimizes American ingenuity like this man, and it doesn’t hurt that he’s also one of the most interesting people on the planet. Here’s what he had to say.

Stay tuned for more “Industry Icon” interviews right here on the J&P Cycles blog.

About the Author:

Patrick Garvin began his stint with J&P Cycles at the start of 2008 after doing some installs for us at Daytona and Sturgis for two years. Currently, Patrick splits his time between the eCommerce team and purchasing, finding new and exciting products for our website and catalog. When he’s not at his desk, he’s zigzagging across the country with J&P’s event crew. Patrick has an obsession with going fast on just about anything, a trait he shares with his 6-year-old son Race. You can usually find both of them wrenching in the garage or ripping through the fields on dirt bikes. Emma, his beautiful wife of 7-plus years, puts up with his antics and keeps his head screwed on because he certainly wouldn’t be able to find it without her.
