Imagine My Surprise

Post  SVDon on Tue Sep 08, 2015 2:36 am

Had a couple of my riding buddies over for dinner last night, along with their spouses.  Soon the conversation turned to motorcycles.

One of the friends, who used to live in a neighboring town mentioned a "great guy" that builds performance stuff for Vstroms and other bikes and operates out of a big shop on his property.   They mentioned his name was Dale Walker, but couldn't remember the name of his company.

Holeshot Performance, I asked?

Imagine that - Holeshot and Dale are located in the next town over, a mere 20 miles or so from my home!   A visit to get to know him will be in my future, for sure.    Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

By gosh you're right!  From the metrickmetal.com website:

I've moved out of my location in Lancaster CA. and I won't have my machines operational until their set up in my new shop I'm having built at my new place in Yerington NV. It is probably going to be somewhere around the middle to the end of September until I'll have my new shop setup and operational   

Same town as Dale Walker.  Lots of the California businesses move to Nevada to escape the high taxes over there.

Wow, maybe I'll have to set up a shipping convenience from here to Oz.  With my business, I already ship stuff over there quite often.
