Some folks have been cleaning up the building and repainting it and getting ready to open a business. What kind of business? Last night at 9:30 p.m. the business name was painted on the building. I was extremely pleased to see the business was: JIM'S BIKE DETAIL SHOP. Above is the picture of the front of the building.
I stopped in and Jim took the time out from painting to tell me about the shop and let me take some pictures for the blog. Meet Jim, owner of the business
This is Jim & his Harley. Jim told me he bought the bike almost 2 years ago and he is just short of 40,000 miles. So, that will let you know that the business is BIKER OWNED & BIKER OPERATED. Jim has worked for RED RIVER HARLEY DAVIDSON and worked with Charlie, who now manages the FOUR STARS MOTORCYCLE RANCH in Henrietta Texas. For more info on those 2 businesses, click the following links: http://redriverharley-davidson.com/Default.asp & http://www.fourstarsautoranch.com/

Jim has been busting his butt getting the shop ready. I will continue to give ya'll updates as the opening day gets closer and the interior takes shape..Jim told me they are hoping to open for business on MARCH 2, 09. Mark that date down on your calenders so you can drop in.

Jim gave me the following info on the business: JIM'S BIKE DETAIL SHOP, 5400 Southwest Parkway Wichita Falls Texas 76310. (NW Corner of Southwest Parkway & Barnett Rd). Hours will be: Mon- Fri 8 a.m. - 6 p.m. Fri & Sat open all day. Jim's Bike Detail Shop will specialize in detailing motorcycles and they will also be doing State Inspections on bikes & cars. I might add at this time, you may want to call Jim on those great riding days and make sure he will be open. Being a man who loves to ride, I wouldn't blame him one bit for taking off now & then and going for a nice ride with friends. You can contact Jim at 940-232-4181 for any questions you may have or for any other information on the business. We will have an e-mail address available for the business in the near future. Also, as stated earlier, I will keep you, the viewers, updated on his progress getting the building ready for opening day.
That will conclude this post. I was glad to meet Jim today and I thank him for his time. I wish him well with the shop and it will be a business that all of the bikers here in Wichita Falls Texas and the surrounding area should support. No matter what kind of bike you ride.. Stop in and say hi to Jim and let him know what you think..
