Tim was only 15 when his parents started the motorcycle business. Since he wasn't old enough to ride on the road, he bought a Yamaha YZ125 dirt bike. Later, while he was still in school, he attended several Yamaha service schools in Cudaly, Wisconsin. Throughout the years, he has attended a variety of classes and seminars including bookkeeping, sales, parts, manangement, and service manager. He currently serves as general manager. For the past 12 years, he has been a fixture at Delta, Milan, and Log Road race tracks, teaching and watching his boys race. Tim and his wife Karen live in Defiance and have two sons, Nick and Zack.
Tim raced ATVs and traded his dirt bike for a streetbike. He also enjoyed the many family snowmobile trips to Michigan. The stand up Kawasaki jet ski was Tim's passion for many years, but now he enjoys the luxury of the three passenger cruisers.
