With my background in the two wheel business, my focus was on motorcycles.
A lucky place to be
Then, a chance meeting at the Meltdown in Hendersonville changed the direction….slightly. Across from my display of the Acmemoto2 products was the shop of Art Caldwell, T and A Offroad. After a brief conversation, Art was very interested. As part of his business, Art helps people like us to develop a market for our products. Since that chance meeting, we have prototyped a mount for off-road applications such as Jeep.
Then this happened
Having noticed a recent change in the motorcycle market that I wanted to explore, I traveled to Raleigh to visit Devolve Moto.
Great place with energetic marketing to a new-to-me generation.
Paul Morro, my oldest friend and who has led me in a many successful directions, suggested I make a stop at one of the many locations for 4 Wheel Parts. I put one of the boxes on the counter and listened to the reaction of the guys who worked there.
The response was overwhelmingly positive. Suggestions flowed.
Thats when the conversation turned to yet another idea
One of the guys at 4 Wheel Parts is a Kayaker and a fisherman…turns out that Kayakers fish. So, Big Doug, another friend was right, he said “if you can find a way to mount the boxes on a Jet Ski that would be huge”. Google Jet Ski Fishing if you have a chance.
So, thats where we are at
To quote our website, “Whatever you ride and wherever you ride it, we want you to be able to carry the stuff you need” works but now it needs to be changed to “Whatever you ride, drive or float and wherever you ride, drive, or float, we want you to be able to carry the stuff you need”
