About Us

When you bring your bike into our shop, you'll be dealing with passionate industry professionals who have had years of experience working with different bikes throughout their lives. Our owner's passion for bikes and motorcycle repair started when he was eight years old and got a HondaTM 50 that he rode on the mountain roads of Santa Cruz, California. At the age of ten, he landed an old Honda 90, which he stripped down and put back together while giving it a rattle can paint job. By the time he turned twelve, he built his first custom dirt bike from the ground up with parts he scavenged from the dump. He even used a section of his mom's vacuum cleaner pipe for the exhaust. From that moment on, all he wanted to do was wrench on bikes.

Our owner joined the Marine Corps when he was seventeen. When he left the service, he took a course in motorcycle repair and earned a certificate in 1983. He returned to the Marine Corps and became an aircraft mechanic on KC-130s. In 1984, our owner married his wife, Darcy, and later transferred to Okinawa, Japan in 1987 for six years. While stationed in Okinawa, he started a Harley-DavidsonTM motorcycle club named the Far East Knights. For the next three years, he serviced bikes for the club members.

Our owner and his family transferred to Cherry Point, North Carolina in 1993. His reputation as a motorcycle mechanic preceded him and he was wrenching once again. He started a small business named The Bike Doctor. Our owner retired from the Marine Corps as a Master Sergeant in 1998 and continued wrenching on bikes as a hobby until the beginning of 2004.

He and his wife never lost the desire to have their own motorcycle business, so in 2004 they decided to open their own business once again. When it came time to decide on the name they tossed around several ideas, but kept coming back to The Bike Doctor Inc. Our owner gets to focus his attention in the service department while his wife handles all the day-to-day administrative tasks. It's been a long ride, but they have arrived.
