Lot of great business started in garages, including House of Motorrad. We have moved out of the garage to expand our rental fleet and begin to offer adventure motorcycle gear, parts and accessories. We carry riding jackets and pants from Fieldsheer and FirstGear as well as helmets from Shoei, Arai, Gmax and Fly. Bike protection features items from Altrider, SW Motech and Barkbusters. We offer luggage from Wolfman and SW Motech, tents from Redverz, and all sorts of accessories such as Garmin GPS, Cardo and Sena communication systems, GoPro cameras, tool bags, oil and filters, headlights, tires, cruise assists, the list goes on and on! If you ride an adventure bike or aspire to, House of Motorrad is the place to get everything you need.
Ben Kriederman – President
Ben started riding things with motors when he was in grade school. Every morning, his dad would take him out to an Air Force base to blast around for an hour or so before he had to go to school. That early love of bikes has continued through out his life in the form of anything with 2 wheels. After working on a PhD in cell biology and in the vaccine development area for a decade, the adventure motorcycle boom and inspiration from shows like the Long Way Down and Long Way Round prompted Ben to start the House of Motorrad in 2011. His love for travel and motorcycles became a symbiotic relationship when he and his dad headed out on two BMW R1200GS Adventure bikes from Colorado to Argentina. Their 16000 mile journey can be followed by visiting the Adventuring South blog where they documented in words and pictures, the trip of a lifetime. Ben’s real world experience has brought House of Motorrad into the forefront of the adventure motorcycle scene and we hope it will allow the House of Motorrad’s new retail location to prosper. See you at the shop!
Lisa Kriederman – Marketing/Philanthropy/Partner in Mischief
Since 2003 when they met in Tucson, Ben and Lisa have been playing around the world together. A meteorologist for the National Weather Service, her knowledge of weather is a great help to our customers whether their touring around the Front Range mountains, or heading up into the Pacific Northwest. Besides weather, Lisa’s passion is to help those in need – especially in need of clean and safe drinking water. Many backpacking trips as well as joining in on the motorcycle trip down through South America really engrained this desire to help in her mind. Because of this, she started the Miles for Water campaign through the House of Motorrad. Customers are encouraged to donate money through this campaign which goes directly to Water For People, a charity whose mission is to provide all people access to clean water, adequate sanitation, and basic health services – based right here in Denver. In return, we will provide free luggage on their rental bikes.
