Andy’s career began in the public safety field. After a decade as a supervisor in that field, he decided to go into the car business for a change of pace. As a lifelong motorcyclist and team leader, he made the transition to the motorcycle business as a sales manager at a metric dealership in the Minneapolis metro. He then went on to manage both the Sales and Finance departments for a Harley-Davidson dealership in greater Minnesota. Andy is now living his dream of managing the Sales and Finance departments at SSB, and loving every minute of it. With both metric and Harley-Davidson experience, Simply Ride was a natural fit, and he is excited to be part of the team. When Andy isn’t working, you can find him riding his XR650L.

Cy loves anything on two wheels! His first time riding a motorbike was a cousin’s pit bike when he was a youngster – riding it straight through a bush and into a fence. He didn’t ride for a while after that! Then, Cy had a roommate that was into motocross and he wound up buying his KX300 dual sport. He fell in love with the thing! It evolved into the purchase of a Husqvarna supermoto! Since then, Cy has developed an interest in the '70s and '80s era Japanese custom builds – as he just built an 82 Honda into a street tracker. Now he is riding a WR250r set up for trail riding – soon to be selling it to get his first cruiser!
