TBR: Two Wheel World has been around forever and had multiple stores around the DFW Metroplex. We think competition forced them to find a niche that worked for them on the lower end of the riding public, in other words people that couldn't afford high priced dealerships.
We're unsure what the future might be for the employees and a business that's been part of the motorcycle riding community for so long. Business owners in the area said Mike has a nice person who had fallen on hard times and was living in the store.
Let's hope the suspect is apprehended soon.
