Meet the team
ASHLEY & JILL BEATON
I was approached by KTM Australia in early 2011 to open a dealership in Coffs Harbour, by September we officially opened Coffs KTM and we haven’t looked back since then. In 2012 we were then asked to take on Husaberg, another quality dirt bike. Its been an exciting adventure delving into the dirt bike world after 20 odds years of road bikes, but motorcycles in general are my passion and having Coffs KTM and North Coast V-Twins is a great combo and its helps feed my addiction. We believe in stocking high quality products and delivering good country, friendly, fair-minded dealings to all our customers and with such a dynamic team as we have here it’s easily achieved.
Having known Ashley & Jill Beaton for over 25 years, it was when Ashley decided in early 2011 to take on the the KTM dealership he approached me to become the Manager. In September 2011 I started working for Ashley and Jill as the Manager and Mechanic of their new store, Coffs KTM.
Motorcycles have always been a major part of my life. I started my career in the motorcycle industry in 1976 as an apprentice at Moe Motorcycles in Gippsland, Victoria and after 12years of being involved in all four areas of the industry here I decided it was time for a change. In 1988 I purchased Wisemans Motorcycles in Coffs Harbour, a successful business which I owned and operated for 22 years, KTM being one of the many franchises we had during this time.
My passion has always been with motorbikes, racing with Team Honda Australia in the early 80’s and in 1985 racing with Team Honda again in the ASBK series with Mal Campbell as my team mate. We have a great team here at Coffs KTM with a highly qualified service and sales team.
I have worked at Coffs KTM since it opened in September 2011. I must say dirt bikes is a pretty new field for me, but I am enjoying the learning curve and working alongside the team we have here.
I have been riding motorcycles for 41 years and was an A Grade Road Racer. I have been working in the industry as a Motorcylce Technician for 30 years and started work with Ashley & Jill in 1992 as a technician as what was known as back then North Coast Ducati, now know as North Coast V-Twins. I have been working at Coffs KTM since it opened in 2011, it’s been great to watch the business grow into what we have today, and also to be around such quality brands and products. I currently own my own KTM and get out on it most weekends. I live and breathe motorcycles.
