BEHIND THE SCENES WITH BBR?S DUANE BROWN–NOV 12
BBR still produces quite a bit of its products in-house, instead of outsourcing to other countries. Why keep production in the U.S. when costs are more expensive?
It doesn?t seem to bother you that other people are copycatting your equipment. How does it make you feel when you see a near clone of your own product that you?ve spent so much time creating?
Would you say that you set the standard in aftermarket mini bike accessories?
Not to let the cat out of the bag, but where do you see the mini bike market going? What needs to be designed to make mini bikes easier for adults to ride?
You have a whole slew of BBR mini bikes in your shop. Do all of the Brown brothers ride?
How many new products do you have sitting around just waiting in the wings to be introduced to the mini bike consumer world?
With your frame design, how long of a process was it for the aluminum frame to come to fruition?
Who is the fastest mini bike racer in the world?
What do you think of an organized mini bike series?
Could you take us through a regular day at BBR?
Where is BBR headed in the future?
How is it that you get to build bikes for guys like Kevin Windham and Ricky Carmichael?
What did you think of Bubba?s 24K gold bike?
It?s weird because you doesn?t seem like you?re cut throat with your competition. Why?
What is the one product that someone should immediately purchase after buying a mini bike?
Thank you for the interview, Duane.
