Warr's Harley Davidson London England

If you haven't realized it yet, Harley Davidson is increasingly dependent on International Sales.  It is merely the nature of this Iconic brand.   Harley Davidson is known as a symbol of freedom, and American Power admired throughout the World.  Owning a Harley is the closest many will get to feeling American.

So when I travel, I like to visit the local Harley Shop.  Usually, when I visit these shops, it seems that I'm the one who ends up answering the questions.  I'm always interested in the perspective of riders worldwide.  So far I have been to Harley Dealerships in Canada, the United Arab Emirates, and now London, England.

In the Canadian shops, I was confronted with the fact that down south we have a very long riding season and that even in the winter we can get a few days of riding in.  There was a hint of jealousy in their voices, for good reason.  In UAE it was about the Desert ride which is awesome.  The Mountains and the Oceans are magnificent. If you stop at a rest stop you will more than likely be greeted by a camel.

In London, it was all about style and power.  There is, of course, driving on the wrong side of the road.  Warr's Harley Davidson was a large shop in the American Style.  They also had a thriving customization operation.  They had some awesome custom bikes that they built from Harley stock cycles.

Warr's is the oldest dealership in Europe, established in 1924.  They also had a collection of vintage bikes that were on the showroom floor.  One of the associates picked my brain about riding in America and planned to go there to ride this upcoming summer. 

Wherever I go its fun to see Harley conquering the multicultural divide, bring together riders from all over the world.  So when you sit on any motorcycle remember this, you have more in common with the rest of the world than you might think.
