After 30 Years of Riding, Greg Returns to Babbitt's


Rich Degraaf, Greg Buter, Greg's grandson and Eddie Babbitt. 


What made you come back to Babbitt's after 30 years?

I couldn't get the old one started, the wife said let's just go get a new one.  So a year ago we started looking for a new bike.  I am so short, I have to sit on every one we try and most of them are too tall.  I can sit flat footed on this one, others I have just toes on the ground.

on some new adventures.



Would you recommend your experience with Babbitt's to others?

Yes, all the time.  The parts department is great, I haven't dealt a whole lot with the Service Department, I do most of the service myself.


What is your favorite part about buying from Babbitt's?

Well, I know Eddie; our kids went to school together.  It's an honest place.

For the many people that do not know, Greg is a huge Michigan Wolverine's fan, everything he owns is blue.  So, when he set his sights on this deep blue Yamaha 950 Tourer, he knew it would match perfectly.


What is the most memorable places your first bike; the '86 Suzuki Intruder, has taken you?

We took it to Tahquamenon Falls on our honeymoon, in September.  It was a little cold, a little rainy, but it was fun.


Do you have any advice to share with others?
