    New AF1 Racing World Headquarters -- Now Open

    We announced this at our Moto GP party, but not all of you were there.

    As of about 3 weeks ago, AF1 Racing has secured an existing 20,000 sq foot building in North Central Austin right on IH-35 and it will serve as our new headquarters building. It's 22 feet tall inside, so with the added 2nd floors, this will just about triple our parts dept. size, double the showroom, and double the service dept. space.

    Renovations begins soon, and we hope to be all moved in by the Fall/Winter 2015. We are merging both stores back together into this newer bigger building in Austin. We will be back to one shop, one team, one mission. All the bikes, scooters, race bikes, parts, dyno, and service equipment under one roof. We also reserved our very first AF1 phone number for the new building, so that is cool to get back. We don't want to post the address yet so we don't confuse people. Locals will figure it out once we light up the big LED TV sign out front.

    We've also been working closely with Piaggio Group Americas to make this the flagship store of the World. We want to be biggest dealer in the World that mainly specializes in Aprilia, Vespa, and Moto Guzzi.

    There will be a huge Open House party once we get settled, and of course next year's MotoGP party will be at the new shop.

    We are very excited about this giant leap forward in terms of space and location, and we really want to thank all our customers, because loyal customers is what made this upgrade possible.

    Sounds good, hope it works out for you. I'm currently operating from two separate locations and it's a pain in the arse. I'm looking forward to consolidating my operations to a larger premises too.

    Does this mean no more break-ins? Hope the new shop is as cool as the old ones. Does it have room on the side for some cool MotoGP murals?
    I find tinsel very distracting.

    Is there a thread going yet with pics of the AF1 girls?
