Inventing the Motorcycle Medallion Plate Covers or Challenge Coin Mounts
Ever since my twin brother and I had our own paper route when I was 14, I’ve always wanted to have a business of my own, around this age we started riding dirt bikes and fell in love with the thrill and freedom of riding. During my sales and computer career working for fortune 500 company’s like Hilton, Marriott, Starwood, Exxon, United technologies and Harley Davidson along the way I feel I’ve been trained to do this.
MotorDog69 LLC. established 2009, specializes in the design and manufacture of unique custom show quality parts for motorcycles. All of our parts are made right here in the USA, Central Florida.
The Medallion Plate Cover (MPC) was conceived one day while I was looking at my 2003 Dyna Wide Glide trying to figure out where I could mount my 9 year recovery medallion, Yep, I’m in a recovery program “clean and free of drugs and alcohol” since April 2000! “I wanted to add a piece of my life to my bike”, I had been thinking about this for some time now and one day it just hit me, I decided to make a prototype design and called my dad, a retired chief of engineering, from United Technologies Norden Systems, and Sikorsky Aircraft. With my initial design together with my dad’s experience we hashed out the family of challenge coin mounts or Medallion Plate Covers (MPC). During the pre-manufacturing process I was lucky enough to meet the right people and manufacturers to help bring these ideas and dreams into reality. Being a first time inventor, business owner and entrepreneur I am always looking for ways to help people get what they want, and bring their dreams and ideas with this part into reality.
Along the way we have come up many new ideas on how our challenge coin mounts could be used and it's been a great ride so far.

The Motordog Speaks
O.K. what’s up with the name “Motordog69”. I am very passionate about cars and motorcycles. It just so happens 1969 was a great year for muscle cars and motorcycles, and also a little controversial about what people relate the number to “you know what I mean”! Also it’s the number to the Cancer sign, my Dad and my wife are both born under the Cancer sign. I was tossing around all kinds of names for a while and could not come up with anything I liked. One day I was looking at our dog Baxter (a Jack Russell Terrier), he loves going for rides, running, dog parks, and just being outside. We take him to a place called “The Lucky Dog” to get his hair cut and every time we say that name he goes nuts, knowing he’s going for a ride and getting to be with other dogs. My love for motors and dogs came together somehow looking at Baxter one day I asked him if he was the “Motordog” and he perked up as if he knew what I was talking about…add at a little 69 and there you have it, the logo actually has a artist rendition of Baxter on the air cleaner with his “shit eating grin” on!
