North Carolina shop aims to fill motorcycle service gap


Morganton, N.C., has a new service shop option this week with the opening of Independent Cycles.

Owner Bo Dickerson and manager Gabe Scofield plan a grand opening some time next month for the shop they opened to give riders a closer place to get repairs and gear than Hickory or Asheville.

“I’m just trying to make a living from something I love to do,” Scofield told the News Herald. “We want to help people ride their motorcycles not make it a burden to ride their motorcycles.”

Scofield is an MMI graduate and has 10 years of experience. He worked out of his home for three years before opening the shop.
