Chad began his motorcycle career at a very young age by working at a multi-line dealership in his Midwestern hometown. Although Chad spent time working in the oil and gas industry, as well as automotive and truck repair dealerships, his passion to return to the motorcycle industry led him to working at large Harley-Davidson dealerships across the country. Not only did Chad graduate from the Motorcycle Mechanics Institute (MMI), his twelve years of working at MMI led him to the role of Chief Instructor for the Screamin’ Eagle Dyno Operations and Powertrain courses.
Chad holds an NHRA Super Gas license and has competed with dealership-sponsored and personal drag cars and bikes. In his spare time, Chad enjoys spending time with his wife and two sons, as well as restoring muscle cars and vintage Harley-Davidson motorcycles.
As owner, Chad leads the Mototire team and personally oversees all operations. His strict quality standards will continue to earn Mototire the highest ratings in the industry.
