On a particularly hot day this past summer, a Red Tesla pulled into the WVCS lot and we met a guy who had a dream to fulfill and was looking for a bike to take cross country. There was no electricity in the shop, inventory bikes were dirty and crammed handlebar to handlebar as we had just gutted the building for the remodeling.Without taking out 20 bikes to get to the one up in the corner he wanted to sit on, he said he’d wait and come back later. This is how we met Carl Reese and are honored to have been a very small part of Carl’s World Record setting run from Los Angeles (Winnetka) to New York City in August. Some of our most stressful moments ever came after Carl pulled out of our driveway just after 3AM on August 28,2015. Carl had left GPS Live Tracker on Jay’s laptop and we were able to follow him until 6:04pm Saturday night when the tracker reported “ignition off”.
Carl’s choice - K1600GT (white).
We celebrated with a new “shop shirt” featuring the K1600 blasting thru a map of the US.
Our initial order of shirts is almost half gone; they come in polo, S,M, L XL XXL; regular, long sleeve and sleeveless and women’s. To see a teaser of a documentary Carl is producing about the history of transcontinental records and a 2 minute story of our August journey and moments of terror, check out the video below. The last sound you hear is Jay’s voice...
The Legend lives on... It’s always been about helping others meet their dream.
