Motorcycle Industry Council members elected two new directors for the organization’s board and re-elected secretary/treasurer Jim Woodruff for another two-year term. Dealernews Editor Robin Hartfiel, who has served on the MIC Aftermarket Committee since 1992, was elected to take the seat of Eric Anderson, of VROOM Network, whose term expires this month. Rod Lopusnak, general manager of Triumph North America, was elected to take the seat vacated by Mike Peyton, of BMW Motorrad USA.

  2020 MIC Board Directors Robin Hartfiel, Rod Lopusnak and Jim Woodruff.

“It is time we all dig deep, together, and truly put motorcycling first,” Lopusnak said. “We need to first challenge every OEM and dealer and, as a group, take this exact step and set this as the foundation moving forward.”

Hartfiel said he is honored to be serving on the MIC board. “As an industry, we are at a critical juncture and we owe it to ourselves to be committed and engaged as we can be.”

Woodruff echoed those sentiments. “Our entire industry needs to work together to help consumers discover the joys of riding, which means recruiting more companies to become MIC members, expanding rider training programs, focusing our data and research efforts, and continuing our outstanding government relations efforts.”
