Dream Rides of Tennessee
BAKER Dealer Since 2021

The name Dream Rides may sound familiar to you because of their reputable shop in California, but in 2021, Dream Rides opened their Tennessee location and have had nothing but success. Their experienced team of techs have made it easy for Dream Rides of Tennessee to make a name for themselves as one of the leading independent shops in eastern Tennessee.

Dream Rides of Tennessee is a reliable “alternative solution to a Harley-Davidson dealer”. The shop specializes in everything from simple service work to extreme performance upgrades. They even sell parts, apparel, and used bikes.

They contribute to the motorcycle community with many events year-round, but their newest and most popular event is the BAKER-sponsored Drag Races.

Michelle talked to John Jessup, the owner of Dream Rides of Tennessee, and learned more about their success in this industry.
