About Us

The best way to describe Fredericktown Yamaha comes straight from the owner Richard Riley. There are two ways to describe Fredericktown Yamaha. First, we love motorcycles (and even ATVs). Second, we are a family. When I say "we are a family," certainly I mean we are a family business, but it's more than that. We aren't all related to each other and we don't all share the same name; however, we do share a love for motorsports and that ties us all inexplicably together. We all know what it's like to feel the excitement of riding and racing, to know the freedom of what "we" do, and to know that only those of us who ride really know what's going on when we talk about the passion that is motorcycling.

And it is that passion for motorcycling that brought Richard to where we are today. It all started when Richards Mother told him "So long as you live under this roof, you will never have a motorcycle," or something to that effect. So, what does Richard do? He joins the Navy, ends up in Spain, and buys his first motorcycle: a Bultaco. (Come in and ask him to flesh out the whole story for you.) Fast forward about ten years later, Richard opened the doors of Fredericktown Yamaha. We have been in the same location now for over 40 years and although the corner of Grove Road and Route 355 has changed, our humble business has remained. Success can be measured in many ways and whether the last 40+ years,  we must be doing something right.
