Paul Lima built GP Motorcycles, a dealership of the finest European brands, from the ground up. Fueled by his fervent passion for motorcycles, Paul has provided exceptional service to thousands of friends and customers across the country. For almost two dec-ades, Paul has always strived to make sure all his customers had the best possible experience with GP Motorcycles, even if it meant putting the best interest of his business aside. Introducing people to the motorsports lifestyle, sharing the experience, and creating new enthusiasts have always been the aim of Paul and GP Motorcycles.
Paul never hesitated to go the extra mile to represent the brands and products he regularly enjoyed, himself. Whether on the race-tracks around the country, at trade shows or in the local community, there was no denying Paul’s passion and commitment to the brands he showcased with such genuine enthusiasm.
On April 4, 2012, Paul suffered a tragic accident while enjoying his passion. Paul had terrible crash on a motocross track and frac-tured bones in his lower back, and as a result of the accident, he is now paralyzed in both legs.
Paul recovered remarkably well from a 9-hour surgery to realign and stabilize his back, and he is now undergoing therapy and train-ing at a rehabilitation center to get adjusted to his new life. While everyone prays for a full recovery, the prognosis is unfortunately not very promising. The doctors have given their normal, safe, low-percentage probability of gaining any meaningful sensation in his legs, but for those of you who know Paul, that small percentage is all he needs.
Through positive thoughts, prayers from around the world, and sheer determination, Paul and his family will make the best of their new situation.
