Devin

ASSISTANT PARTS MANAGER

Started 01/03/21

Devin

We found Devin in a basket at our doorstep one crisp winter morning at the ripe young age of 25. He was then quickly adopted by our Parts Department. Not much is known about Devin other than the fact that he was raised in the woods somewhere by a sleuth of bears where they taught him everything he knows about motorcycles and banjos. Now in civilization, Devin has grown very interested in the world of choppers. When Devin is not at work, you probably won’t be able to find him, but he’s probably out there somewhere taming bears and teaching cubs all about sportsters alongside his canine companion Arlo.

Brandon fell in love with motorcycles when he first went to Brainerd to watch Superbike racing back in 2015. He quickly became a volunteer for the Central Roadracing Association as a corner worker and has since been promoted to a Corner Captain. Brandon has been riding for 5 years now and has owned a couple of 90’s Super Sports and most recently, a 2015 Yamaha FZ-09. When not on two wheels, Brandon enjoys playing guitar and designing/building guitar effects pedals.

Keith

Keith has been riding motorcycles since 1974, starting in the Mojave Desert where he rode thousands of off-road miles before he was old enough to get a license. Keith was an MSF Rider Coach for 14 years and is passionate about rider training. He is a retired USAF Chief Master Sergeant with over 22 years of service, and recently retired from a corporate career in IT with a major retail company. Keith is married, with three daughters, and everyone in his family is very supportive of his motorcycle habit. They live in Chaska with cats, dogs, parrots, and a bearded dragon. It has been his dream to work full-time in the motorcycle industry for many years, and he is really excited to be part of the Simply Ride team!


Evan

Parts Consultant

Started 02/15/22

Keith

Evan had the distinction on his first day of simultaneously being our newest and oldest employee at the same time. After a lengthy career as a lawyer helping scofflaws avoid responsibility, he decided he would much rather hang out in a motorcycle shop helping people have an enjoyable riding experience than sitting in a courtroom in a suit and tie. Evan has been riding for over 50 years and has seen a good portion of the US. Scenic Drives, National Parks, National Monuments, State Parks and other glorious, beautiful rides this country has to offer. Thinking about a trip? Stop by the Parts and Accessories Department and ask him about cool places to ride, stop, or see along the way!
