Best H-D Dealer

When my son and I travel it seems that we bounce from dealer to dealer on some rides. Most of them are pretty much the same like out of some corporate mold dictated by H-D themselves. On our travels through Wisconsin we stumbled on Doc's Harley of Shawano County. Like no other dealer we have ever been to. Steve "Doc" Hopkins races top fuel drag bikes. You could easily spend a couple hours at this dealer and not see everything. Great car and cycle collection, all kinds of crazy bike builds an ark on wheels and even an exotic animal room. This is a must see dealer. Easily my favorite dealer. Tell us about your favorites so we can all check them out in our travels.- Ride On-

Three dealerships that stand out in my mind would be Thundermountain H-D @ Loveland, CO. Awesome dealer with bad a$$ views of the Rocky Mountains.
High Desert H-D @ Meridian, ID (Boise). Pretty good prices with their bikes and good customer service. Great Falls, MT was a good one as well.

One of my worst dealers of all time would be Arrowhead H-D off of Bell Rd in Phoenix, AZ. Horrible service all the way around. Stay away from these clowns.

Kersting's "in" Winamc, IN is an old dealership like nothing you've seen. Small museum out back, parts guys who know their stuff. Not a corporate cookie cutter by any stretch either.
They are in between Kokomo and South Bend, IN.

I'm a big fan of Dudley-Perkins in San Francisco. Walking through there is like being in a museum. I've spent a lot of time in there and still haven't seen everything.

Dudley-Perkins is one of the oldest H-D Dealers in existance. They moved from their original location in downtown SF to South SF a couple years ago. Before then, they were in the same building since about 1914. I believe it's still owned by the same family.

If you're ever in SF, check it out. It's located just north of the airport.

One that comes to mind is "#1 Cycle Center" in Center Hall, PA (Near State College). It's on a huge piece of property with a large pavilion, a huge horse sculpture made from chrome take-off parts, and the owner is an Evel Knievel fan- He has two of his bikes on display along with a number of antique Harleys, Bultacos, etc.

I just went on Doc's web site. Good lord, what a place. It has everything. Do you think that guy makes any money on bikes?

For me I have only been to 1 bad now defunct dealer Shumate HD here in Spokane but three stand out Beartooth HD in Red Lodge Mt my 2 friends and I had just ridden over Beartooth in snow and were soaked and cold the ladies at the Dealership let us hang up our wet clothes and made us hot chocolate. The other is HWY 101 HD in Coos Bay Or every time I've been there I've gotten great service plus it's a nice older small dealership which is a nice change from all the huge stores everyone seems to have these days. Lonewolf HD which is my local dealer has been very good since taking over from the defunct Shumate HD.

Think he probably made some money drag racing also. His car collection is amazing. His builds are crazy, a very talented man. If you are in Milwaukee or Green Bay well worth the drive. Plan on spending a couple hours or more if your into Cars and Cycles. Also have a great service dept. from what I have been told.
