Be glad, there’s one place in the world
Where everybody knows your name and they’re always glad you came
You want to go where people know, people are all the same
You want to go where everybody knows your name
Making your way in the world today takes everything you’ve got
Taking a break from all your worries, sure would help a lot
Wouldn’t you like to get away?
These lyrics are a perfect way to describe Chariots of Fire Customs, LLC. Chariots of Fire is a place in this world where people can go and Jan, Reine, and the staff will always be glad you came. When it comes to motorcycles Jan takes care of all your worries. This helps a lot for when you get to get away.
It was only by chance that I became a part of the Chariots of Fire family. I came in to cover for Kellie as she is out celebrating the birth of her son Charlie. There are several interesting, trivial facts I have learned during my time at Chariots; (1) They really do know your name and the type of bike you ride (2) Reine is genuine and real! She truly does want a hug and always has a smile to share. (3) Though it hurts me a little to admit this… Jan has so much knowledge; he is like a walking encyclopedia for motorcycles, he is a Motorcyclepedia! It blows my mind how much wisdom he has about bikes. I guarantee you… you may think he is wrong, but is he usually right! (4) Jan and Reine have established a great relationship with their vendors not just to keep their business running but to help their customers. They know exactly who to call to get the part you need, when you need it. And (5) there are things you say in your daily life that take on a whole new meaning in a bike shop…i.e,
“Check” him out
It’s how big???
Tie me down on the rack.
I have to figure out where to put it.
