Best Motorcycle Shop: Victoria Harley Davidson
This year marks the fourth time Victoria Harley Davidson has been voted by Crossroads residents as the best place to get a motorcycle and riding gear.
The store, which opened in 2002, exclusively sells Harley Davidson motorcycles and its paraphernalia, such as parts, accessories, chrome, clothing, collectibles and general merchandise.
The 1903 brand builds confidence, co-owner Dawn Euton said, because "it's American owned and American built."
"We love the brand. We believe it's the best, and we sell a good product at a fair price and offer great customer service," Euton said.
There are some 30 motorcycles on hand at their North Moody Street location, which was rated recently as having one of the top 10 service shops in the nation.
Euton said they try to educate newcomers - more and more of them are women - who walk in the door on what's the appropriate leather boots or safety glasses to wear while riding. She said she's flattered with how the vote turned out this year.
"We have an awesome staff that cares a lot. ... I think they just take it one day at a time," Euton said.
