We’re a Harley-Davidson dealership so of course we like to party. We party for holidays, melting snow, beer, and mostly we just like to watch the bikes line up around the building. A sea of leather & chrome.
This time of year, we have our own special reason to celebrate known as the new model year. Picture it as Christmas & New Years for the Harley enthusiast. At the summer dealer meeting in Milwaukee, the Motor Company unveils the changes and additions for the upcoming model year. 2013 is the 110th anniversary of the company. Naturally, we’ll be throwing a party to celebrate this newness when it arrives.
Sounds pretty exciting no? Well, even if you’re not excited about the party, you’ll have to be excited about the 110th Anniversary models. With dusky bronze hues, everything from the bikes to the jackets are radiating nostalgia. Everything is also all extremely limited. Only a few bikes and a handful of each motorclothes item will make it to the dealership. Sometimes retailers throw the word “limited” around a lot as an advertising verb but this time, I promise, we are teary eyed about how briefly we’ll be able to look at the 110th anniversary products. They’re beautiful.
The next thing everyone is talking about is Harley-Davidson’s Hard Candy paint jobs. It started with the 72 Sportster they released about 6 months ago. The wonderful thing about this big flake paint is it gives the onlooker both futuristic and vintage vibes simultaneously. Some people think it’s just too much but whether you love it or not, most will agree that it’s pretty hard to look away!
They’ve added the Hard Candy paint the Factory Custom options, along with a Street Bob! Just like the original factory custom 1200 Sportster, you can build this beauty from the ground up and have it delivered to Alaska all ready to ride. I find it pretty amazing that we’re able to order motorcycles the same way we order laptops and pizza in this day in age. It’s all about getting exactly what you want for the money you’re spending and every biker knows you should ride your own ride anyway!
The last thing I must mention is the Breakout CVO. Harley-Davidson.com describes it at “slammed and chopped” and I’d have to agree. It’s a striking piece of machinery.
I have no words, so here is their description:The Harley Davidson FXSBSE CVO Breakout model is a premium custom motorcycle that mixes top-of-the-line features and detailing with a low, long and slammed power profile. Individually crafted and hand-finished, high-impact paint and graphics come standard on this CVO touring custom motorcycle.
