Larry Soles, from Soles Motor Sports, spoke as a guest of Eldred Buehrer at the Stryker Rotary Club meeting. Larry runs his business out of downtown Stryker and is able to attract customers from a large geographic area. The sale of large items is somewhat sporadic, but he said that is the nature of the business. Service work and sale of smaller items provide the steady business for the company. Larry enjoys racing vintage motorcycles on a flat track. He said they have been practicing racing at the fairground for several years, and ran a sanctioned race during the Williams County Fair in 2012. This year they were not able to get on the schedule of events, but are planning another race in 2014. He has also raced at the Fulton County Fairground where they run an annual race the second weekend in July. These are great places to see vintage motorcycles of all sizes. Larry drove a motorcycle with a Voyager conversion kit installed to the meeting. His business installs these kits, making an affordable method to transfer any motorcycle to a trike. The kit can be made to match the motorcycle and once installed provides a very attractive package. The Voyager is also easily removable if the owner would like to ride a two wheel bike part of the time. Larry is pictured on the converted motorcycle with Rotary member Eldred Buehrer on the back preparing to take a ride.
