In 1998, Dick Davis and Al Bilton, being powersports enthusiasts for most of their lives, decided to mix business with pleasure. In July of 1999, Extreme Sports opened as a joint, family-owned dealership providing Sumter and the surrounding area with the full line of Yamaha powersports products. In August, 2010, Polaris ATVs and Utility vehicles were added to enhance the products and services we are able to offer our customers.
Dick and Al had both participated in motocross racing for a number of years, as well as enduros, cross-country, and hare scrambles on motorcycles. On Friday the 13th of November, 1992, Dick, Al and two of their friends set out to cross the Atlantic Ocean, unassisted, from Florida to Bimini Island, navigating through the Devils Triangle (the shark capital of the world) on personal watercraft. Being the first to accomplish this feat, their story was told on CNN and many newspapers across the country. Their experiences, their personal belief in taking pride in producing high quality work, and their commitment to strict attention to detail all contributed in the motivation for operating a dealership that focused on the idea of fun, yet maintaining professionalism in its approach. It also serves as a means for them to spread their passion to others.
We are located in the heart of SC, where it is easy to find our clean, modern dealership from anywhere in the state or surrounding areas. Our concept of doing business is not only to sell our customers high quality products, but to make them feel like they are a part of our family. We strive to give our customer's information that will help them make good buying decisions. Our dealership differs from others in our service after the sale. We give our customers product support and real service whenever they need it. Additionally, we have all the quality, people and tools to back everything we sell.
