Voyages on Two Wheels – 10 July 2011 – Red Rock Harley Davidson
See – I told you I’d be back soon
I stopped by Red Rock Harley Davidson here in fabulous Las Vegas on Sunday. I was looking for a few accessories, but didn’t pick any up until Monday. Some people have bashed Harley Davidsons and their dealers. They say that the difference between a Harley and a vacuum is the position of the dirt bag and that the dealers won’t talk to ‘em unless they show up on a Hog. I’ve found both stereotypes to be completely, 100% wrong :) The folks at Red Rock Harley Davidson are some of the best I’ve ever met. Steve in parts has helped me a few times now and Millie back in clothing worked to find the right things today. If anyone wants to see how customer service should be done, go to this dealership and work with these two! They’d be smart to clone them
Red Rock Harley is the closest dealer to me and they’re more than just a bit of space with a few bikes for sale :wink: I figured I’d give y’all a bit of a glimpse into what you can find at a good dealership :cool: I don’t know all that much about bikes yet, but I think the old ones are pretty darn cool!
This bike looks like it’s probably fast due to the four cylinder engine and cafe racer handlebars, but those drum brakes look entertaining
I’ve never driven a sidecar rig, but they’ve always fascinated me. This one’s incredibly custom and very cool
I really like old cruisers like this Harley, but there’s something about this one that just doesn’t quite click for me. Maybe it’s the fringe or the huge chrome parts on the fenders, but I just can’t see me riding it. Maybe things will change in the future. I wish the new owner many years and miles of enjoyment
If I were going to buy a new Harley, this would be my bike. I’ll take the Road King Classic with factory custom paint and all the options
This little two stroke is too small for me, but I can only imagine the look on a kid’s face if they got it for Christmas
I’m not sure if these are originals or replicas, but they sure look FAST!!!
While I think this is one of the coolest looking bikes in the shop, I don’t know that I’d really want to try riding it
I’d only ever seen a Vincent Black Shadow in videos so it was great to see one in person :cool: The Black Shadow was the first motorcycle to be stable and very controllable at high speeds of over 100 miles per hour. Motorcyclists attempting such speeds on earlier motorcycles would run into a problem known as “Speedman’s Wobble” which does not sound very enjoyable
Once again I’m going to say that I really don’t know much about these two Triumph bikes, but they sure look nice
This is another one of those bikes that I think looks cool, but I’d never really want to ride
This should bring back some memories for people ! This looked like a pretty good replica
I’ve heard a lot of both good and bad about Softails, but they look pretty nice to me :wink: About the only things I didn’t like on this one were the passing lamps – they just don’t really appeal to me
This bike looks old to me, but it’s actually a 2006! The styling and the manufacturer – Ducati – both tell me it’s fast and that price tag tells me it’s not going to be a problem for me anytime soon
I’m no stranger to a bit of speed and excitement every once in a while, but this just looks like insanity to me Actually, I’m rather surprised it hasn’t been resurrected for the X-Games
One of these days I’ll have to write a post just on this motorcycle. I think it’s absolutely gorgeous, but the controls are different from anything I’ve ever seen before. For example, the throttle is on the left and does not automatically snap back, the clutch is on the left pedal where I’d expect a shifter, and twisting the right grip adjusts the timing advance Sounds like it might be fun to learn
This Sting Ray isn’t the only car on the showroom floor (more of those in later posts ) but I really like it :) It’s got the big block 427ci engine which sounds like fun but I’m really glad I don’t have to pay for gas :shock: I’d prefer the knock off wheels and side exhaust, but I’d drive it with pleasure if I had the chance
That’s about it for now. Here’s a big THANK YOU to Red Rock Harley Davidson for not only providing me with exemplary customer service but also for allowing me to take pictures of the awesome vehicles on their showroom floor
Have a great day everyone
