Harley dealer celebrates 30 years

A business that started life in a shed at the bottom of the owner’s garden is this month celebrating a 30-year partnership with one of the world’s longest established and best known motorcycle manufacturers.

On the weekend of 26 and 27 April, Riders of Bridgwater will celebrate three successful decades as an authorised Harley-Davidson dealership with a huge, free weekend party for customers and local residents. The celebrations begin at 9am on Saturday and run through normal trading hours across the weekend.

A BBQ will be serving up tasty treats all day and those with a full, motorcycle licence can take advantage of free demo rides on the latest 2014 Harley-Davidson motorcycles. 

Riders Motorcycles started trading in 1976 selling a variety of used motorcycles, including Harleys. Founder, Phil Jessopp, who still owns and runs the family business, approached Harley-Davidson UK in 1984 and become an authorised dealer.
