Hello, I’m Scott Cochran, along with my wife and co-founding partner Sylvia Cochran I want to thank you for joining The Biker Nation.
That’s our picture taken on Mt. Charleston near Las Vegas. We ain’t much to look at....well, actually, my wife is pretty hot, but I’m not so ugly that I make babies cry...If I don’t get too close or actually hold them.
We founded this online store for three reasons.
1. Our motorcycle magazine, USRiderNews was losing money. After 2008, the entire publishing industry started a downhill slide. Advertisers shifted their focus to digital media and revenue started drying up faster than a mud puddle in the South Georgia heat. Even though we had more Facebook fans than some much larger and better-known magazines, we knew we needed a new strategy if we wanted to stay in this industry.
2. As Editor of a magazine, I was able to get most of my gear free, but my wife was searching for fashionable clothing at rallies and shows. After a couple of bad experiences with poor quality products, we realized a lot of you don't like buying from vendors at rallies because if there's a problem with the purchase, the rally is closed and the vendor has moved on. Sure you can wait until the next year or hope to catch the guy at another rally, but honestly, how often does that happen?
3. High quality, good looking clothing for men and women aren't easy to find at most motorcycle events, and if you ride, as we do, there isn't a lot of storage room to buy a new wardrobe at Sturgis, Daytona or Laconia, and haul it back home. Plus it's a lot more comfortable to shop from the convenience of your home than it is to schlep to some rally and hope to find something you like.
So, from that, The Biker Nation was founded in May of 2014. In our first 7 months we did a modest $33,000 in total sales, with most of that coming in December 2014.
The next two months, January and February 2015, we sold more products and reached more customers than all of 2014! It was that moment when we knew we'd made the right choice, and since then, the arrow on the growth chart has consistently pointed skyward! In June of 2015, we expanded operations into our new office and warehouse location at 111 S. Central St. in Swainsboro Ga. (small town USA!)
We owe that to you, our loyal customers!
Most of our ladies clothing is manufactured here in the USA. The top-hats and cowboy style hats we sell are also made in the USA.
Our riding leather is imported, however, it is warehoused in the USA and usually ships within one or two days of your order so you're not left waiting for weeks to get your jacket or chaps.
