Chris Estridge

Chris Estridge

General Sales Manager

Chris began as a California native.  He lived for a short time in Seattle, WA with family before going to Silver Springs, NV which then led him to Twin Falls, ID in 1989 where he stayed until he became part of the Gold Rush team here in Elko, NV.  

Like many of us in the sport, Chris started riding dirt bikes at a young age and as he got bigger so did the bikes.  The favorite dirt bike had to be his Montesa 360. As for the street as long as it has a bar and shield on the tank, it is all good. 

Chris started with our dealership family at our Twin Falls location before making the leap to Gold Rush.  His experience in the automotive industry before joining us makes him a great addition to our team.

John Highland

John Highland

Service Writer/Lube Tech

John did his best to escape Elko, but after several moves away finds himself back in the town he was raised.  His love for 2 wheels began as a youngster and a YZ125 dirt bike which soon turned into a street bike with a drivers license.  John currently owns a Street Glide and favorite past time is just hitting the road with no destination in mind.

He started his adventure at Gold Rush H-D as a lot technician and has since began training to become a technician and working as a lube technician.  The more he learns, the more his love for motorcycles and the Harley brand grows.

Ron Tyler

Ron Tyler

Parts & Service Writer

Is there such a thing as a construction brat? Or is that just Military?  If it is a thing, that would describe Ron.  As a youngster his father's construction skills took them to Nevada, Northern California, Oregon, & Washington.  He met his wife in Oregon & moved back to Elko 39 years ago.  The area just feels like home.

Ron's first bike was a 1972 Super Glide that he bought while serving in Germany.  He enjoyed many great rides while serving in Europe.

He is currently riding a 2008 Super Glide Custom that has taken him on a few great journey's.  The coast highway from San Francisco to Seattle/Tacoma area is just one.  Riding the giant redwoods is an experience a rider will never forget.
