Toledo, Ore., residents have a new place to shop for ATVs, scooters and gear.
Former fisherman Scott Morales and his mother, Diane Relaford, opened the business about a month and a half ago, according to the Newport News-Times. He's hands-on, while she is more of a silent partner.
All Ride Motor Sports is an authorized dealer for Roketa, Unison Motors and Apollo. Morales plans to add scooters and mopeds to the store's inventory of ATVs, accessories, apparel, helmets, gloves and protective gear.
The store is around 1,800 square feet, and Morales is looking for more space to open a repair shop. "We're just in the process of getting a facility," he told the News-Times. "I feel bad turning people away, (but) I say 'just be patient. We're working on it.' "
Morales hopes to get qualified as in instructor to prepare people to get motorcycle endorsements on their driver's licenses from the Oregon Department of Motor Vehicles. "Soon, you're going to need an ATV off-road license like they did with watercraft," he said.
The business is open Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. They are closed on Sundays.
