Bikeshop.com.au co-owner Michael Godwin is a lifetime motorbike rider and Ducati and KTM enthusiast. Michael grew up in Taree, NSW and started riding at the age of 4 years old on his parents property and later tried his hand at enduro and flat track racing. Michael has owned and run a number of successful businesses and has worked in Project Management for a number of government and private organisations. Bikeshop’s other co-owner David Massey hails from the UK and also a lifetime motorcycle enthusiast. David has owned and managed a number of large successful businesses both here and in the UK. David participated in the last ever Dakar to be held on the African continent.
In early 2020 the opportunity came up to purchase the Australian import rights for Ducabike and Scalvini handmade Italian exhaust systems from then owner Dominic Sullivan. Michael and David jumped at the opportunity to buy these two small importing operations. They both saw this as a great opportunity to become involved with their passion – two wheels, and so the journey began.
It became immediately obvious to Michael and David that there was a yawning gap in the Australian market for true high end, top quality motorcycle products. Products that stand out from the crowd, products that are innovative, products that are truly desirable, and this was the catalyst for starting BikeShop.
BikeShop.com.au was born from a simple idea - seek out and provide the very best - and only the very best - products available in the motorcycle world today. We have no interest in the cheap and nasty products that have flooded the Australian market in recent years.
We aim to grow Bikeshop into the go to marketplace for those who appreciate and crave the very best that is available in the motorcycle industry today.
We will stay staunchly true to our mission and continue to relentlessly seek out obsessively desirable moto gear.
