Dwayne “Turk” Turek has been in the motorcycle business in Delaware most of his life. If you have ridden a motorcycle in the state of Delaware you have probably dealt with him at one time or another.
He started behind the parts counter at Diamond Motor Sports way back in the early 80s. Back then he was basically a wild bushy-haired guy with a wide grin and a custom Dodge Van who loved motorcycles as well as having a good time. He left us and went to work for Honda East of Bear as a service writer and became their service manager. In 1999 Turk returned to DMS to be our service manager for 5 years before opening his own shop, “Turk’s Cycle Wurks”, in Smyrna.

Last Saturday morning I was responsible for leading the Snowball Haul Sport Touring ride. I spent some time in the morning laying out a route that would be interesting without going too far away and allow us to be back to the dealership within 2 hours.
