Construction planned for motorcycle store

Hernando County will soon be getting a new motorcycle store. Construction will start in a few months on GQ Motorsports, a 6,000-square-foot store that will offer Kawasaki brand motorcycles, water scooters and ATVs. The family-run store will be next to the St. Petersburg Times building on Cortez Boulevard. The store will employ about five people when it opens in May, with room for expansion, said owner Gifford Quast. The land was purchased in August for $245,000, according to Hernando County Property Appraiser records. Quast chose to open in Brooksville, because the Kawasaki manufacturer saw a demand in Hernando County.
