This new position will integrate customer and Iron Pony team engagement, special events and marketing for Iron Pony Motorsports Group, Inc. and Pony Powersports Group LLC.

    “Dave will be working with every division of the Iron Pony family as we move forward to take Iron Pony to the next level,” said Chris Jones, President of Iron Pony. “We are looking to take Dave’s knowledge of the national motorcycle scene and leverage it as we grow.” Hembroff oversaw more than 500 events and 600 clubs while at the AMA, including 5 national riding series and 50 major rallies and conventions.

    "I came to central Ohio in July, 2006, just in time for Mid-Ohio's Vintage Motorcycle Days (VMD)," Hembroff said. "I look forward to promoting Iron Pony's presence there this year for VMD and Superbike weekend. We will have some cool Pony gear and 'save the date' information for our big Indian Motorcycle open house week in September." Iron Pony will also be supporting the VMD featured marque, selling official Indian branded gear at the Motorcycle Hall of Fame display tent.

    "With the riding season in full swing and two upcoming events this month, as well as the chili cook off in August, and September's Indian Open House, we expect Dave's experience and knowledge to come in very handy." Chris Jones said. "But where we are really excited is getting Dave's help creating more customer engagement opportunities to spread the Iron Pony culture throughout Ohio and the region."

    “This is a great opportunity and a great team,” Hembroff said. “I’ve been a loyal Iron Pony customer and fan since I moved to Columbus in 2006. You don’t find the quality of product or people anywhere else.”

  • Locally owned and operated Iron Pony Motorsports Group launches Iron Pony Riding Academy – A motorcycle riding school focused on teaching the fundamentals and dynamics of safe motorcycle operation. Iron Pony Motorsports Group has an exciting new division designed to train motorcyclists. The Iron Pony Riding Academy can simply be described as a motorcycle riding school. The Motorcycle Safety Foundation based curriculum was developed for people with little or no motorcycle riding experience. Students will spend time in the classroom and riding motorcycles while they develop skills and gain an understanding of the dynamics of safely operating a motorcycle. Iron Pony Riding Academy’s instructors are professionally trained and certified by the Ohio Department of Public Safety’s Motorcycle Ohio Division and the Motorcycle Safety Foundation. Students will train in a safe, controlled environment, free from the dangers of traffic while learning the basic skills and techniques needed for a lifelong enjoyment of motorcycling. Cory Atwood, CFO of the Iron Pony Motorsports Group, said “Riding motorcycles can seem quite intimidating at first, but once you develop an understanding of how the motorcycle’s controls work and spend time cultivating proper riding techniques, it becomes second nature- the key is developing a foundation of proper techniques.” Iron Pony Riding Academy offers weekly classes during peak riding season. The 16 hour curriculum starts with four hours in the classroom, followed by twelve hours of on-the-bike training. The *cost of the course includes all class materials, and the use of a current model training motorcycle and helmet. Proper *attire and a Motorcycle Learners Permit is required. Upon successful completion students receive a waiver which they present to the BMV to obtain their motorcycle endorsement. Earning this waiver allows you to *forego the BMV skills test. (Minimum age required) *Check IP-RA.com for details.

    Motorcycle riding is fun. What driver hasn’t seen a motorcycle glide gracefully though a turn and wondered what that must feel like to lean into a turn. The dynamic is closer to a plane or a bird turning than what you experience in a gravity-hampered automobile. Not all of us had riders in our family to pass along the passion for motorcycling. If you grew up in a non-motorcycling family chances are hints about your interest in riding were met with a scowl and a lecture about how dangerous those things are. If you gathered up the courage to ask a local rider or walk into an old-school motorcycle shop chances are you were met with an ego fueled answer of mumbo jumbo that would make brain surgery on a rowboat seem simple. Motorcycling is awesome, but it seems like people almost try to keep it to themselves. The goal of Iron Pony Riding Academy is to make motorcycling accessible, to strip away the myths and present the facts, to peel back the cover of anecdotal stories of how scary riding a motorcycle is, and put it in its proper and awesome light. Yes, it was a big step to pull the training wheels off your bicycle, but you got through that. Remember that freedom you first felt? When it clicked, when you didn’t have to think about balancing, you just did? We can restore that incredible sense of freedom. You’ve waited long enough.

    “In a car you're always in a compartment, and because you're used to it you don't realize that through that car window everything you see is just more TV. You're a passive observer and it is all moving by you boringly in a frame. On a motorcycle the frame is gone. You're completely in contact with it all. You're in the scene, not just watching it anymore, and the sense of presence is overwhelming.” ? Robert M. Pirsig, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry Into Values

  • Columbus, Ohio-based Iron Pony Motorsports Group took top honors last evening at the 20th Annual Dealernews Top 100 Dealer Awards Ceremony, held at the Indianapolis Marriott. Iron Pony, owned by Chris and Tammy Jones, primarily sells motorcycle parts, gear and accessories out of a massive store that once housed a Super Kmart. In the last two years, the company has taken on three vehicle franchises - Yamaha/Star, Polaris/Victory, and Piaggio/Vespa/Aprillia. The Ohio store was lauded by Top 100 judges for its merchandising inventiveness, promotional excellence and success with its surrounding community.
