I caught up with the new entrepreneurs (Terry and Sherry Braley) this January at a Biker Rally. Soon after speaking to some fellow riders they have been telling me about Terry and Sherrys new internet site (Road Rash Apparel) and how low their rates were on their Leather Apparel. I learned about Terry Goldberg by searching Yahoo. So soon after digging by means of the crowd I finally met up with them. I introduced myself and we sat down and must have talked for more than two hours about their new organization. Effectively, they talked. I asked Terry and Sherry why they started their enterprise and WHY! Do you sell your apparel so low-cost?
Terry Nicely, we had been on the Web one night searching for some leather jackets and chaps to obtain. We need to have searched for three hours seeking at what seemed to be each internet site there was to look at and I couldnt think the costs of some of them. I know you get what you pay for, but damn? I dont want to spend for the complete cow!
Sherry It appears that all the cheep leather was that patched leather or some contact it Diamond Reduce leather. We werent interested in that. Not to say theres something wrong with it. If thats what you like, then get it. To every its own.
Terry- Yeah. I had asked about about what sort of jacket to acquire. The majority of the riders I had asked, told me to get one that was made for riding. You know, just in case you lay your bike down. And patched leather wasnt the best way to go.
Anyway, I created the comment that somebody demands to commence promoting this stuff that caters to us poor bikers.
Sherry I looked more than at Terry and mentioned, We can do it
Terry A week later I quit my job and started developing the site. I did A LOT of analysis on Leather. Varieties, thickness of it and where it comes from. I was nearly sick of leather after about 3 days. Anyway, we decided we wanted to acquire our leather from an American made manufacturer and I ended up finding a firm in Spokane WA that had what we have been searching for. They manufacture leather apparel made for bike riders. And its damn excellent leather. And Ill tell you. What I pay for the jackets and what I sell them for, we dont make a huge profit on them.
Now that we've covered those elements of Biker Shirts, Leather Jackets, Motorcycle Apparel, Boots, Chaps, Vests, Leather Lingerie, let's turn to some of the other aspects that need to be regarded.
Sherry Yea, had been not in it to get wealthy. Just make a tiny income and help out our fellow bikers.
Terry Considering that weve went live on the World wide web we have sold a lot more T-Shirts than jackets. Thats okay. I think when people see our rates they believe its cheep leather and stray away from it. But its Prime Quality Leather! You cant locate our type jackets on the world wide web for a far better value I consider
Effectively with out going into the entire 2-hour conversation we had. We continued to speak and they told me more about what they sold on their web site. T-Shirts, Leather Lingerie, Boots, Chaps, Vests and the list went on. Terry said proper now we sale more than 700 kinds of t-shirts and plan on adding a lot more. By the time we get done, we will have effectively more than 1500. Thats a lot of damn shirts
These have been two of the friendliest folks I have ever met. Both Terry and Sherry are from Georgia and reside in Douglasville Ga. And you could inform that these had been just two folks really trying to look out for fellow bikers and our shallow pockets..
