    Going to miss MachineHead Cycles

    Any of you that attend the Airheads at the Aerodrome meet may have seen the little motorcycle shop on Route 199 in Red Hook, after 7 years they will lock the doors on December 31st. Good luck to Helen and Ashton with their new endeavors. Their business was sure in good shape, they are just moving on. Ashton is a first class wrench and would (still will) help any biker on any motorcycle. If Ashton was locking up on a Friday night and you rolled up with a limping bike he would turn the lights back on and get your bike on a lift. Ashton and Helen will be missed at MachineHead Cycles.

    So sorry to hear that they are closing...even if it is to move on. It seems like the small, independent shops with that special personal touch are becoming rare.

    Please pass on our good wishes!

    They were both good shops and we (I) wish they were both still there
