The two-wheeler experts of Iron Steed Harley-Davidson teamed up with the venerated manufacturer in 1976, and now house new and preowned hogs in a 30,000-square-foot facility with easy access to the Pacific coast, Napa Valley, and the Sierras. Riders aged 21 or older secure luggage and teddy-bear compadres in onsite storage, before setting out atop late-model rental steeds such as Fat Boy, Heritage, and Road King cruisers or Electra Glide Classic, Road Glide Custom, or Street Glide touring bikes.
Rider's Edge New Rider courses prepare beginning bikers with 25 hours of guidance from instructors certified by Harley-Davidson and the Motorcycle Safety Foundation, exempting riders from the driving portion of the motorcycle-license test. Chopper pilots learn braking and turning basics, skid control, and obstacle avoidance as they cruise around Iron Steed's custom practice range on Buell Blast motorcycles. An onsite service center restores wounded rides with factory-authorized repairs and one-day routine maintenance. Parts and clothing departments allow Harley enthusiasts to customize bikes without having to lick them.
