It’s a chance you’ll Harley want to miss

There are those who don’t like Harleys and there are those who have ridden one – that’s what one bike journalist told Harley-Davidson big-wigs recently.

So the good people at H-D are putting this theory to the test and welcoming all riders into their dealerships – especially those who haven’t yet put their opinion of these all-American bikes to the test.

And Harley-Davidson staff are so confident in the smile-inducing capabilities of their new metal that they’re challenging those of you who haven’t ridden one to give it a try and tell them how it made you feel.

And here’s the best bit: in return, Harley-Davidson will give you €25 to fuel up and enjoy the scenic route home.

The offer is running across the full dealerships network in Ireland and the UK and is available to riders who take a test ride on a new Harley and complete a feedback form in dealerships until Sunday, August 2.

The Harley-Davidson press people say: “We appreciate that you may not share our opinion, so our test ride challenge to riders who dismiss Harley gives us the opportunity to gather the opinions that count – yours.

“The development of some of our most recent bikes and concepts, including the Project Rushmore Touring range and the Livewire electric motorcycle, were the result of an evolving customer-led process and underline the importance of real rider feedback.

Harley-Davidson UK & Ireland Marketing Manager, Steve Colling, said: “For a large number of competitor riders, they have never visited a dealer or ridden a Harley but some have preconceptions about H-D, which do not reflect reality.

“We are confident that our current range offers a great experience for all types of riders.

“As a customer-led company, we look forward to gaining rider feedback and seeing what people think.”
