“Great place! Fritz is super knowledgeable and easy to work with”

Don Turk

“I have a Vstrom 1000 that needed new drive train. They were of immense help seeing how I had to go back home the next day. Fritz and his crew are awesome.”

Malcolm Duke

“For the past several years I have spent a week each summer trail riding about 700 miles in the South Fork and Creede area. Each time I then brought my bike here for an oil change and a new tire before then riding the Colorado 500 invitational charity trail bike ride, usually about 600 miles. This past summer I also needed to have the Rekluse handlebar mounted rear brake bled. They also discovered that my wheel bearings were worn out and replaced them. That was a very good thing. One year during the Colorado 500, my countershaft seal started leaking. I stopped at Gunnison Motorsports when the ride route passed near Gunnison. They put in a new seal in a few minutes with no appointment to keep me on schedule. I have always received complete and timely service here. It’s also cool to see the owner’s (Fritz Kadlec) international racing memorabilia displayed in the shop, including eight medals from the International Six Days Enduro. I recommend this shop to anyone needing parts or service for their dirt bike.”
