In this episode, Lurch and I discuss our plans to expand Law Abiding Biker in 2023. I started Law Abiding Biker in the Spring of 2013. It began as a podcast followed by a YouTube Channel. After a couple of years, I realized I would need to monetize Law Abiding Biker if I wanted to keep it going. So, in 2015 I started a modest online store and our first product was our beloved Biker Gripper. The Biker Gripper remains one of our best sellers to date. The “store” was in my garage and my family helped me pack and ship. It didn't take too long for us to figure out this was overwhelming for my family.
About the time we figured out it was too much for us, Rick “Big Daddy” Kane came to me with a proposal to become the store manager and add more products to the store. The “store” was moved to Big Daddy's garage. He brought on many products and the store began to flourish. Unfortunately, in 2017 Big Daddy's garage and house caught on fire and the store was a total loss. Thank God Big Daddy was able to get out of the house and he was unharmed. We started over from the ground up and moved into a storage unit. In 2019, we found a commercial space in Richland, WA.
The idea has always been to move the store to the Yakima area when Big Daddy retired from his Law Enforcement job. He let us know last fall that he was retiring in 2023. So, Lurch and I started looking for a store. We had quite the adventure of finding something that would suit us. In January of 2023, we found a building in Union Gap, WA, and purchased it. The building is located between Lurch and me, and it is accessed easily from the Interstate.
The plan is to move the store to our new location in July 2023!
