Motorcycle-USA.com has been the independent voice of online motorcycle journalism since 1996. Founder Don Becklin built a website with the simple vision of sharing his passion for motorcycles and motorcycle racing. An active club racer in the Pacific Northwest, Becklin produced racing content and posted motorcycle news on what would today be called, a blog. As the internet boomed, however, Motorcycle USA blossomed into a full-time occupation and fledgling business. Within a few years Motorcycle USA expanded by hiring a full-time editorial staff, as well as selling motorcycle gear and accessories to supplement advertising. This latter division of the young website proved immediately successful and evolved into a separate company, Motorcycle-Superstore.com, the leading online retailer of motorcycle gear and accessories.
Motorcycle USA’s content side enjoyed rapid growth as well. In 2000 Becklin moved his startup out of his grandfather’s attic in Grants Pass, Oregon, to a new warehouse and office space in Medford, Oregon. After splitting with Superstore, with which it is still affiliated, Motorcycle USA continues to be headquartered in Medford, relocating into its current offices in April 2010. MotoUSA also opened up a second office in Irvine, California, right in the heart of the motorsports industry. Source
