Although currently without two-wheel transportation, Kirk says, "Don't feel too bad for me, I've chosen to invest the time I would be spending riding a motorcycle building a future with my wife... and she said I can get a new bike soon - yeah!

When I'm not working, I love to be outdoors."

Shannon Whalen - Senior Parts Associate

Shannon Whalen

Senior Parts Associate

Shannon grew up in the motorcycle industry, the daughter of a motorcycle mechanic, and she has worn quite a few hats here at A&S Motorcycles. She started in the shipping and receiving department as her first full time job out of high school (where she took auto shop classes). Back then we were a small company and she was the only one on the job there. A quick learner, Shannon soaked up parts knowledge like a sponge. Eventually she moved to San Francisco and worked at San Francisco BMW. While there started riding on a Ninja 250, spending every weekend riding to Alice’s, up and down the coast - even doing track days at Thunder Hill.

Since moving back to our area, Shannon returned to our parts department as a parts and apparel specialist, eventually taking on more responsibility as assistant parts manager and in 2007, parts manager. Recently, Shannon became a mother and chose to relinquish the management position to serve as senior parts associate sharing her vast knowledge of the business on a part-time basis.

Josue (pronounced Ho-Sway) answers the phones in the Parts Dept as well as working at the counter. "'Sway" started working at A&S Motorcycles in 2004 as a detailer. After 3 years there soaking in as much motorcycle knowledge as he could he moved to Parts.

What started as just a job turned into a passion, "I specialize in handling phone calls and creating MAGIC! Part of working with our customers is getting to know what they ride and sharing experiences. My job is to make sure they get the right stuff - I love my job!"

Having come to A&S Motorcycles with no motorcycle experience, Josue knew very little about bikes when he started but, one thing lead to another, and before long he was riding local mountain roads on a Neon Green 2005 Kawasaki Ninja 636 and going to Bike Nights. "Although I currently do not own a bike I intend to ride again after some of the dust settles (i.e. when my kids have grown up a bit!)"
(Asked if he has a hobby, the father of a 2 year old replied, "Resting!")

After working at a number of auto parts stores, including a stint as Parts Manager for Auto Zone in Citrus Heights, Jon attended Sierra College and earned a degree in Auto Mechanics and Graphic Design as well as dabbling in audio recording. At A&S Motorcycles, he started out working at the parts counter, but eventually moved into the Internet Processing Dept. At the time our website was not doing that much business, but over the course of that first year, our online orders grew immensely. Then in 2009 a position opened up in Internet Merchandising and our Parts Manager recommended him for the job due to his skills and creativeness in photography and design. This lead to his being handed the reigns of our e-commerce efforts. He's also responsible for advertising graphics including event posters and print ads.

In addition to designing and implementing our e-commerce web site, ascycles.com, Jon is our resident graphic artist. Jon's also a talented guitarist who has played lead in a number of bands as well as playing bass, drums, and some keyboard too. Jon says, "On top of my music, my hobbies include fixing and modifying classic cars and photography - I love to photograph just about anything. My wife, Shana, and I have two children. Although I don’t ride, and (according to my wife) never will, I still grew up around motorcycles. My dad always had a motorcycle in the garage. In fact, the first one he bought at the age of 16 was a 1966 Honda C92 Dream (Domestic Model). He still owns it and rides it everyday!"

It's especially fun to work at the best motorcycle shop in California"

Mike enjoys touring and riding the twisty roads of the Sierra and Coastal ranges. "When I'm riding my goal is to avoid freeways and find new back roads. I like to get my money's worth from my tires by wearing the edges as much as the center." Mike's had a number of bikes over the years including a 1972 Electra Glide that survived thousands of cross-country and commuter miles through the 1970's. There was also a Honda 500-4 with a sidecar that was the family's second car for ten years. He currently rides a 2007 BMW R1200RT and occasionally his wife's 2006 Triumph Thruxton. "I love having the chance to talk to our customers about the places they've been and the bike's they ride because it's fun to share our mutual interest in travel by motorcycle."

After working in the Sales Dept. from 2005 through 2009, Mike now serves in the internet department loading new products on the our e-commerce web sites and taking care of our dealer site, aspowersports.com.

Jamie Ormsby - Motorcycle Technician

Jamie Ormsby

Motorcycle Technician

Jamie won the "best ever" award for his new employee introduction:

Hello, my name is Jamie & I’m a motoholic…
I would have liked to stand before you all today & say that I have not moto’d in many days, but to be honest, I moto’d yesterday. I am living proof that motoholism is hereditary. My father is a motoholic & my Grandfather on my mothers’ side is a recovering motoholic. I am fairly certain that my motoholism manifested itself in me at a very young age. My father, not realizing that he was continuing the cycle, placed me on the fuel tank of his 1970 Honda CB750 when I was 6 months old. He also placed me on the fuel tank of his Kawasaki H2 750. I was hooked, but confused on which moto my addiction craved most.

My confusion further increased when I was given a 1965 Honda CB450 twin by my grandfather & introduced to a Suzuki RM125 during high school. My disease took a turn for the worst around 1997 when I entered the bastion of motoholism in Citrus Heights, A&S BMW Triumph. It was there that I had my first taste of what the British had to offer. When introduced to the Scorched Yellow 955cc fuel injected Triumph T595, my life was forever changed. I knew that it would be a very long time before I could ever become a recovering motoholic, like my grandfather.

Over the next few years I satisfied my motoholic cravings with Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki & Kawasaki. I thought I had settled on Kawasaki, but after going to work for Performance Cycle, the new local Triumph pusher in 2004, my craving for British Iron returned with a vengeance. It was there that I purchased a Graphite 2006 Triumph 675 Daytona. Again, my life was forever changed. After using Daytona to get me through the most simple to the more adventurous task, from going to Safeway for groceries to camping in Kings Canyon, it seemed that there was no hope for my ever recovering.

The first step to recovery is admitting that there is a problem. Well ladies & gentlemen, I have a problem, I'm a motoholic. It is not always easy dealing with the stigma & bigotry of those who do not suffer from the disease of motoholism, but like many of you, I stay calm & carry on. My addiction has brought back to the bastion of motoholism, A&S Motorcycles. It is my hope that through the guidance & support of this great body of motoholics, I may some day find the strength to walk the path of recovery.

Kathleen O'Boyle - Controller (aka "Accounting Queen")

Kathleen O'Boyle

Controller (aka "Accounting Queen")

Kathleen joined A&S Motorcycles in 2016 after 20 years in the automobile business. As our controller, she makes sure the i's are dotted and the t's are crossed.

Off duty, she loves to go on motorcycle rides with her best friend, do some stand-up paddle boarding on the lake, hit the gym, play board games, cook and BBQ and hang out with my daughter.​ But does she ride? "I fell in love with motorcycles in kindergarten after being picked up from school on a Harley by a family friend. I have ridden here and there in the past but prefer to be a passenger as I am easily distracted by the ​world around me. I do plan on getting my license soon."

Although not a rider yet, Kathleen's got the right attitude, "Work like a captain, play like a pirate​!"
