Car dealerships all feel kinda the same to me. Walk into a Ford dealership in Boston and chances are it’s gonna feel and look pretty much like the Ford dealership in Barstow. Not so with motorcycle dealerships. They all have their own distinctive and unique personality (except Harley-Davidson dealerships that have a cookie-cutter sameness these days).
That’s why I make an effort to check out the local motorcycle establishments when I roam. On a recent trip to Portland for The One Motorcycle Show, I took the time to visit MotoSport Hillsboro and man, I’m so glad I did.
MotoSport Hillsboro is that rare shop that combines an obvious passion for motorcycles and motorcycling with unit sales that rank MotoSport Hillsboro up there with the largest mega-mall, corporate-owned motorcycle dealerships in the United States. That’s no easy feat. Business acumen and motorcycle enthusiasm under one roof. It all adds up to a win-win for anybody looking to buy a motorcycle.
