There's no place like home - unless it's the West Coast!

It’s pretty easy to get drawn into work these days, so to break the norm oor Bruce suggested an intrepid run out on the road after work. I think we’re pretty lucky to have some awesome roads on our dealership doorstep and the route Bruce chose for Don, Will and I didn’t disappoint! From West Coast to Aberfoyle, over the Duke's Pass to Callander.

Our chosen Milwaukee-Eight powerhouses were the Low Rider S, Fat Bob, Road Glide and Fat Boy, which took every twist and turn in their stride, and although we had set off in balmy evening sun, it got misty over the pass and the temperature dropped off. I was extremely thankful to be wearing my FXRG gloves and Stag neck tube for sure!

With a brief stop in Callander and as a sign of the times, with no coffee in sight, we headed back to Glasgow. Thankfully as we passed Lennoxtown the sun came back and we got to ride into our beautiful city in the same blissful sun we’d left behind. As I parked the Fat Bob up, I couldn’t help but think that West really is best!

West Coast Harley-Davidson Rideout

It would be an understatement to say the weather sure has been changeable the last few weeks, but we’ve still met some great riders from all over the UK heading to the North Coast 500 and many other destinations. Hurricanes aside, this weekend looks pretty good and we know plenty of you are planning trips and weekend getaways. We’ve broadened our Touring and Rallies section to offer even more great kit and suggestions for your stay-cations.

West Coast Harley-Davidson Rideout 2

We know plenty of you would have been heading for Thunder in the Glens this weekend and we’re definitely missing meeting you all up there and enjoying a few beers with you in the sun. Last year you may have seen the Livewire on display and even had a shot on the Jumpstart, so we’re thrilled to let you know we’re throwing the UK’s first exclusive Livewire event on Saturday, September 5th.

We’ll be joined by Harley-Davidson UK, their experience truck and several Livewire's for road riding. Spaces are limited on a first come, first served basis.

With Ewan and Charlie set to broadcast their Livewire trip on September 18th, this could be your chance to get a taste of their experience on the road. We’re pretty stoked to be hosting an event at all this year, so if you fancy something a little bit different – go ahead and register here.

Until then we have plenty of new production coming in store over the next few weeks and we’ll be working hard to get them online for you all. In the meantime, enjoy your time in the saddle, and check out our new arrivals right here.
