Turncycle was on hand to help celebrate the Grand Opening of Dual Sport Plus yesterday at their new retail location at 581 West Street in Brantford, Ontario. Dual Sport Plus will also be the first retail dealer in Canada!
Hundreds of Adventure riders and motorcyclists braved the cold and rain to come out and celebrate the opening, which had special guest Les Clark and Catharine St. Denis former owners of Dual Sport Plus were on hand, taking time away from they’re “No Agenda World Tour” to help new Owner Rob Long and DSP General Manager Clinton MacBride open the new facility. All were blown away by the attention to the details of the long distance adventure rider may need.
After the ribbon cutting we were all welcomed to enjoy the Jordan Szoke’s Extreme trials motorcycle stunt show, Clinton Smout’s riding skills seminar on how to pick up a fallen dual sport motorcycle on it’s side properly. BBQ supplied by Strode’s Meats, and a bicycle display of amazing feats by Trevor Bodough, while inside Lawrence Hacking explained about his recent motorcycle rally in Mongolia! Many riders picked up some great grand opening deals, and door prizes were handed out on the hour! At some points while walking around the bottom level it was shoulder to shoulder. Even a demonstration on how to ride a Segway!
The retail side of the store is a two level balcony style layout, with a kitchenette and showers available to riders who may need to freshen up during their trips, while getting their bikes serviced. Vintage trials and motocross motorcycles are displayed along inside wall above the bottom floor.The trials area and boot and glove boutique is also on the upper level.
