Welcome to CRM
At Country Rode Motowerks we take pride in making you feel welcome and in assisting you with answering your individual needs whether it is a motorcycle, scooter, parts, accessories, apparel or service. You will find our Staff, many who have been with us for years, to be very knowledgeable and able to answer almost any question. Everyone here loves to ride and enjoys encouraging and sharing the motorcycle riding experience with those new to it as well as with seasoned riders. There is always plenty of coffee & conversation going on. We consider ourselves a destination for those who "love to ride" with our goal being to keep your riding passion alive by providing you with as many travel, resource, educational and informational seminars during the year as we can.
CRM is not only Western New York's only BMW motorcycle retailer, it is Western New York's only ZERO electric motorcycle retailer and the Rochester area's only Vespa/Piaggio scooter dealership. Our second goal is to continue to supply unique quality motorcycles and motor scooters for the discerning rider.
We love to give Demo Rides to qualified riders. A valid motorcycle license and proper riding gear are always required. Demo bikes depend on model availability. It's a good idea to call 585-421-0480 to schedule an appointment.
Country Rode is located 15 miles from Lake Ontario, 20 miles from the beautiful Finger Lakes region, where there are many scenic riding roads. We can even suggest a few.
Fairport itself is located on the historic Erie Canal. It is is a very active tourist destination with a good selection of restaurants, canal boat rides and numerous festivals.
We are only about five miles from the Thruway (Interstate 90) Exit 45 (Victor) and Eastview Mall for some high-end shopping with stores such as Lord & Taylor and Von Maur, and lots of great restaurants.
