Baker Drive Train Update

The Baker traveling sales team stopped by a day early. That turned out great for me but bad for all my friends and customers that wanted to meet Bert. It was awesome getting one on one time with the mad scientist and transmission genius. The funny thing is we didn't even talk about transmissions. We did spend most of our time talking about the changing land scape of the motorcycle industry. Bert was kind enough to share his knowledge about marketing and  advertizing, something I know vary little about. I'm just a gear-head trying to run a small business. I only recently discovered that this is as important as the mechanical skills that I have spent the past 20 years "trying" to master. All in all Bert and Mark are great guys and I hope to get to know them a little better. I want to thank Mark for seeing something in me that made him want to have Bert stop by and meet me and I want to thank Bert  for spending the time to share his knowledge and give his insight on the industry that WE love so much.
