The history of Taskys Metric Cycle goes like this:

 At an early age I was on two wheels, in the form of a Sears mini bike (Thunderbolt 125) thanks to a mutual Christmas gift from my father and grandfather. ( My mom will never forgive them!) I still will never forget the moment they opened the garage doors in that skinny Pittsburgh back alley to reveal my surprise!  I have never stopped riding. I progressed through the ranks of bikes, Hodaka’s, DT’s, YZ’s, XR’s, KX’s, the occasional street bike that I road off-road, and many others.

 I have lived in many places and have ridden many different conditions: Pennsylvania, Mississippi, Colorado, Indiana, Virginia, Ohio, and now Washington State.

 My first new motorcycle was a 1991 Kawasaki KDX 200, I currently am on a 2013 Husaberg FE250, and having a blast! ( Update: I have now had an 04 Husky WR 250 and a 05 Husky TC 250 4-STROKE, and an 06 TE 450,and an  06 TC 510! , 07 Christini 270X AWD, 07 Christini XCW 250 AWD, 07 TXC 450, 08 GasGas EC300, 07 TM 530F, 08 Husky SM610, 09 Husaberg FE450  Husaberg FE570 , 2010 Husaberg FE 390 , 2012 Husaberg TE300, 2013 Gas Gas EC300 E, 2013 Husaberg FE250 and a 2012 Rokon Trail-Breaker......and more to come!)

The experience of going into a bike shop and bench racing with all the guys, looking at the newest gadgets for your bike, and the latest in protective gear has always been the highlight of my week. I used to drive my father and grandfather crazy about going to the shop.

 I raced a bit of motocross in the late 70’s and early 80’s but mostly wrenched for my buddies. I have worked at several bike shops over the years and auto dealers. Ended up becoming an  A.S.E.  certified master tech. and wrenched for years.

 Well on to TASKYS METRIC CYCLE……

My favorite motorcycle shop over the years, without a doubt has been Stan and Rosemary’s  Metric Cycle in Mount Vernon Wa. a small mom and pop accessory store with everything you needed. What an experience to go to a shop with such knowledge and passion for the sport! Stan has since retired and closed up shop in 2000, what memories!

 I have yet to visit such a place again. That’s when the light bulb came on, That’s when I knew what I had to do.

 So, with Stan’s OK and a crazy look in his eye, we sat down to discuss my plans.

Four month’s later( 8/03 ) I am proud to present to you:

Taskys Metric Cycle

My wife Jamie and I carry on that Mom and Pop atmosphere with much pride!

A special thanks to Steve Bentley and Mike St. May for moral support, and more riding memories than a guy could ask for. ( If only we had some of those moments on film... ) You guys rock!  


Some things have changed over the last couple years in our industry. It's tough for the Mom and Pop shops these days to compete with the Mega Stores, internet, discounters and such, so...... Jamie and I are moving on down the trail.
 It has been a great time meeting lots of cool folks and racing and riding with great people.
 Here we go - off to our next adventure.............................................
Later,
Jeff and Jamie Tasky
