Will 2016 be a quiet year?

What is The Motor Company going to do in 2016?  Everything has been quite “hush hush” around here in regards to the new 2016 line-up.  They definitely have everyone around Riverside Harley-Davidson on their toes wondering what they have up their sleeves, if anything.

After having a massive model overhaul in 2013 with the new release of Project Rushmore on all Touring models, the new Street family, a mid-year introduction of a few “low” models, the Project LiveWire electric motorcycle, and then the huge reveal of the new 2015 Road Glide and Road Glide Specials.  Do you think Harley-Davidson will be having a quite year in 2016?

Let us know your thoughts….if could bring any model back or change anything on a current model, what would it be?!

Recap: Demo Truck Weekend & Personal Preference

It is always interesting to see how people make their decisions on which bike is right for them. It is not as simple as just the style of the bike these days. With so many choices now within each class, the smallest details are what set each model apart. It’s all of those small details that make the experience of searching for your perfect bike something you will never forget.

Last weekend we had the Harley-Davidson Demo Truck out here for 3 days, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  On the truck was 18 different bikes, ranging from 750 Street all the way up to the CVO Limited and the CVO Road Glide Ultra.  The most popular bike in the “Touring Family” was most definitely the Road Glide Special and Street Glide Special.  The most popular from the “Dyna Family” was the Low Rider and also quite surprisingly popular was the Night Rod Special.  It was definitely interesting to see which bikes were preferred over the rest and finding out why the chose the bike they did.  People were excited at the fact they could try out any bike they wanted, back to back and feel the difference between them all.

Finding the perfect bike for you is possible with the amount of knowledgeable Harley-Davidson enthusiasts we have working here at Riverside Harley-Davidson.  Come down and check out which Harley-Davidson fits your preference and get yourself out on the open road!

Motorcyclists in the 16th Annual West Coast Thunder Ride Honor America’s Veterans

West Coast Thunder RideUpwards of 7,500 motorcycles were out in full force this Memorial Day as the West Coast Thunder Ride rumbled through Riverside in honor of every American who gave the ultimate sacrifice. This was the 16th year that riders from Los Angeles, Orange County, and the Inland Empire took part in this patriotic event sponsored by Riverside Harley-Davidson and it sure did not dissapoint.

Benefiting the Riverside National Cemetery Support Committee

All participating riders gathered at our Harley-Davidson dealership on the morning of May 25, and after the Ultimate Sacrifice ceremony, the parade began at 9:11 a.m., in honor of the victims of 9/11. The route lead from Indiana Avenue, up Alessandro and Van Buren Boulevard, and past the Riverside National Cemetery.

Along the way the streets were lined with flag waving supporters of all ages. The West Coast Thunder Ride, along with the ceremonies at the Riverside National Cemetery, combine to create the largest Memorial Day commemoration in the region, and the families that lined the parade route were thrilled with the roaring caravan of motorcycles.

Many of the riders stopped at the Riverside National Cemetery to pay their respects and take part in the scheduled ceremonies there, while others continued on to the Soboba Casino outside San Jacinto to enjoy a very special Memorial Day concert by country artists Big & Rich.

By all accounts, the West Coast Thunder Ride was a memorable and moving way to celebrate Memorial Day and pay tribute to the sacrifices of those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country. Best of all, the proceeds from the West Coast Thunder Ride go to benefit the Riverside National Cemetery, which is the third largest national cemetery in the United States.

Street Glide Customization Contest

As some of you may have seen through our FaceBook page that we are having a Street Glide Customization contest between ourselves and our 3 other sister dealerships, Avalanche Harley-Davidson located in Denver, Colorado, High Octane Harley-Davidson in Billerica, Massachusetts and Rawhide Harley-Davidson in Olathe, Kansas.

Each dealership has put a team together that will be working on the build.  It consists of a service technician, parts consultant, service writer and a fit specialist.  These teams are getting together and creating a Street Glide masterpiece.  We will be uploading photos in a FaceBook album titled “Street Glide Special Customization Contest”.  Through this album you will be able to watch the build happen through photos and updates.

Once all the bikes are completed each dealership will upload the photos onto FaceBook and you as customers can go on each dealerships FaceBook page and vote on which one is your favorite.  We know most will vote on the bike just based on their own dealership, but we ask that you vote legitimately on your FAVORITE customized bike! Let’s make this a good contest!!


**here are some photos below of the beginning of our build.
