Behind Bars grew into a business out of frustration, after over 30 years of riding off-road motorcycles, an interest helped by a trials-riding father, competing in motocross (schoolboy scrambling as it was when I started) and then enduro, trials and trail riding. It became increasingly difficult to find local shops where I could go to buy kit suitable for a more mature rider who did not necessarily want the latest MX gear or widgit from the USA.
With a background in sales and many years in the motor trade including working for a Yamaha dealer back in the late 70´s and early 80´s we set out to cater for Trail, Trials, Enduro, Supermoto and MX riders, only supplying products that we would use ourselves and most of the time had used.
Having traded for a couple of years from outbuildings at home we moved into our first retail and workshop premises in 2003. After about 5 years we moved to larger premises in Kenilworth, Warwickshire and with more workshop space we are able to cater for all makes of road and off-road bikes and scooters including classic and vintage. We are now working more and more on road and adventure bikes, but still cater for the off-road customers.
