A popular motorcycle attraction in Joplin is changing names and owners. Cycle Connection on south Main will soon become "Hideout Harley Davidson." Owners Scott and Nancy Hutson have chosen to sell the motorcycle shop after more than 42 years in the business. The sale is scheduled to be complete by the end of the month.
The Hutsons say it was a difficult choice to make.
"It was a tough thing to tell our staff, there were tears. It was emotional and it's almost as if there has been a little bit of a death or seperation here and I'm sure by the 31st it's going to be even a little more so," says Cycle Connection owner, Nancy Hutson.
The Hutsons say they are confident most of their staff will remain employed at the motorcycle shop.
