Since 2009, Terry Tedford discovered a need for a device that can improve the communication within motorcycle riding groups and with improved communication, improve safety. Through a series of events that were witnessed while out on rides, it became clear that a need exists but there is no solution. T.L. Tedford Enterprises, Inc. has developed that solution through Motorcycle Group Alert™. Motorcycle Group Alert™ is a patent pending touchscreen electronic device, which once mounted on the handlebars of every bike in the group, will allow every group member to visually receive warnings and alerts. This is superior to any current method, but not intrusive. T.L. Tedford Enterprises, Inc. contends that motorcyclists do not want to chat with one another, but they do want to know when there is a pothole up ahead, and they don’t want to be left behind when they break down unexpectedly. This is the function of Motorcycle Group Alert™. Safety is the objective.

As mentioned above, the opportunity with Motorcycle Group Alert™ is to fulfill a need in safety that exists in the group motorcycle riding market. Since information flows through groups, often at an incredibly quick pace, T.L. Tedford Enterprises, Inc. will use this phenomenon to its advantage. Once the value of the product is recognized by a few individuals in a group, the excitement will spread to other members of the group. Additionally, many riders ride with more than one group. This provides opportunity for cross-group seeding of the idea. Motorcyclists love recommendations from other riders. This phenomenon will not be difficult to propagate.

Motorcyclists congregate a few times each year at major motorcycle rallies. These present T.L. Tedford Enterprises, Inc. an opportunity to educate bikers about the product, and demonstrate the benefits as well. Since initial sales of Motorcycle Group Alert™ will be online via a well-known motorcycle accessory website, the exposure will be international immediately. Through marketing campaigns aligned with this website, and other online presences, knowledge of the product will be disseminated. At the bike rallies customers will have an opportunity to put their hands on the product and run it through its paces. They will also have an opportunity to purchase the unit at the rally.

Trade shows are historically a good venue for information dissemination. T.L. Tedford Enterprises, Inc. will take advantage of numerous opportunities to attend such shows. With good educational materials onsite, this will provide excellent exposure of Motorcycle Group Alert™.

The target market is all motorcyclists that participate in group rides. As of 2010 this segment made up 15 percent of the total motorcycle riding market with a historical trend of 6.6 percent annual increase. Projecting the numbers along the trend line provides an estimate of 1.4 million riders in our segment (9.3 million in the total motorcycle market) in 2012. With rising fuel cost and consumers’ drive to improve their fuel economy, the trend on the total market is expected to continue its annual increase of 6.6 percent. We find, however, the target market will not increase at the same rate because there is no affirmable correlation between purchasing a motorcycle for fuel efficiency and riding in group rides. But, some new market entrants are likely to enter our target market as they adopt their new lifestyle of riding on two wheels.

The competitive advantage of Motorcycle Group Alert™ is the focus and improvement on safety. There are many motorcycle accessories available to consumers, and there are many accessories that claim they improve safety. However, none use an active communication process employed by our product. This is not a communication device for leisure communications, such as a VHF headset, or cell phone. This is an alert device that provides user defined safety alerts to everyone in a group. Bikers do not want to be intrusively interrupted from their communion with the open road. They do, however, want to know when there is trouble ahead, or a member of the group is having trouble behind. Motorcycle Group Alert™ is not intrusive – it is safety!

The goal of T.L. Tedford Enterprises, Inc. is to provide motorcycle riders with a product that enhances the safety of their ride. As we went to different motorcycle events in the Dallas – Fort Worth Metroplex and talked about this need in the safety of group riding, we discovered agreement and quick acceptance of our proposed solution. This correlates with intuitive recognition that Motorcycle Group Alert™ is going to improve safety. The market is viable, and the customers are willing to pay.

T.L. Tedford Enterprises, Inc. runs on a model that does not internalize much of its total operation. This considerably reduces the required investment in capital assets. Additionally, many key business functions are outsourced, which reduces the expense of these functions because high-cost employees will not have to be maintained. Because of this reduction in fixed and variable costs, we are able to offer Motorcycle Group Alert™ at a price that will attract the entire target market and provide a very reasonable 48.6 percent gross margin.

The five-year plan includes development of enhanced products and options for the device. As Motorcycle Group Alert™ advances, the profits will increase, and equity investments will become more valuable. The end game is to sell Motorcycle Group Alert™ to a larger communications company such as Garmin or TomTom, or motorcycle company such as Honda or Harley Davidson.
