Brooke Farquhar

Brooke's first rides were minibikes taken out on family camping trips. After graduation, he worked at Cycles Inc. in Arlington, VA. He and RL met there and have remained lifelong friends. Over the decades, Brooke has served in a variety of roles at motorcycle dealerships throughout the DMV area. In 2015, he founded Motoworks in order to give back to the sport that provided him so many rich experiences.

Mike Jinks

Originally from Massachusetts, Jinks started at the renowned Freeman Cycles as a Master Tech in BMW and Moto Guzzi. In 2003, he and his wife moved to Virginia where he served  as Master Tech at Morton's BMW. With nearly four decades in the trade, Jinks enjoys staying up to date on the latest computer technologies and earning the kind of experience that only comes from wearing out hand tools.

R.L. Brooks 

R.L. purchased his first bike, a stepthrough Honda 50, in 1969. It didn't start, but he fixed it—and has been performing similar miracles ever since. Besides being a career mechanic and parts man, he's a AHRMA Cross Country National Champion, raced at Daytona, Barber Motosports Park, and Unadilla, and toured the Isle Of Man with Brooke in 1994. He loves sharing war stories and keeping old bikes on the road.
