Moore County, NC (Vocus) April 13, 2010
Are we there yet? Over 120,000 motorcycles were registered in North Caroline in 2008 according to the Federal Highway Administration. That number is an increase of over 27% in the last five years. Where do these riders go and how do they get there? Dennis Munden of Vass, an owner of a Honda 1800 VTX decided that bikers needed alternative maps, ones that would increase the scenic pleasure of a ride, provide locations of “Mom and Pop” eateries, repair shops, and other less-publicized biking events. Motorcycle-Maps.us was born.
“This is a great start-up venture that has found a unique niche,” said Ray Ogden, Executive Director of Partners in Progress, the economic development organization for Moore County. “Motorcycle-Maps.us has a great potential to grow as more bikers learn about this resource. It’s important that we support entrepreneurial companies like this because they are significant job creators, and you never know when a company will grow to become a major employer in the community.”
