Workman Road Homeless Camp Cleared Out By Motorcycle Store Formerly Operated By Mayor Kelly

A large homeless camp on Workman Road has been cleared out by the motorcycle business formerly operated by Mayor Tim Kelly.


Mayor Kelly is no longer involved in the operation of his former businesses, city spokesperson Mary Beth Ikard said.


She said, “Southern Honda Power Sports paid a contractor to come in and help clear the property. The property realtor requested removal of the homeless encampment in order to close a sale on the property.”



Ikard said all those who were at the homeless camp “were offered access to hotel rooms but many unhoused individuals for whatever reason sometimes refuse.”


She said 45 people were living there and 28 accepted the offer of hotel housing and other services.


Ms. Ikard said the city’s Office of Homelessness and Supportive Housing helped to triage on the Workman Road location, but city Public Works was not involved.

Ride On: Harley-Davidson store coming to TC | Business

TRAVERSE CITY — When one valve closes, another opens.

Iconic motorcycle brand Harley-Davidson ended a long-time association with Traverse City earlier this year.

But those with a hog will soon have another source for H-D apparel, parts and accessories.

Michael Zipser, the principal at Zips 45th Parallel Harley-Davidson since it opened in 2001 at 980 S. Wisconsin Ave. in Gaylord, will bring Zips Harley-Davidson Traverse City to 330 E. Front St. in the coming months.

“We’re very much looking forward to coming to Traverse City,” said Zipser, who has operated an attorney/CPA office in town since 1970.

Classic Motor Sports announced in late January it “would no longer represent the Harley-Davidson brand effective March 1,” according to a joint release. The agreement ended Harley-Davidson’s association of 30 years with Classic Motor Sports and of more than 60 years with Traverse City.

While the new location won’t be a Harley-Davidson dealer,

Motorcycle, ATVs stolen from Rocky Mount store ::

— Twin County Motorsports in Rocky Mount sells everything from ATVs to RVs. Owner Lance Cherry says on Tuesday night someone broke in and stole at least $50,000 in merchandise.

“You get that bad feeling because you know you work and you try to build something, and then all of the sudden somebody just comes in overnight and takes it away,” he said.

Cherry says the criminals spent hours at the store and even made several trips back, loading everything onto a trailer.

“They took stuff still in the boxes. They loaded up trailers. They made two trips here,” he says, “I guess it’s easy the second time – everything was already broken into – you just had to walk in and out.”

Cherry owns two other locations in New Bern and Greenville. He says he’s invested thousands of
