Four years ago, Sherry and Don Lee found their perfect bike: a 2008 CVO Ultra Classic with 4,700 miles on it. No matter that their dream bike was currently to be found in a little town called Fond du Lac, Wisconsin… an eight hour drive from their hometown of Vincennes, Indiana. Sherry and Don made the trek to Open Road Harley-Davidson® to check it out. They had a great experience getting to know Mighty Mike – he knew his trade, was funny, and honest. It felt like the beginning of a friendship.
Fast forward to 2017, and Sherry and Don’s son Levi decided he was ready to ride and add another Harley-Davidson® to the family! On a family trip to Daytona Bike Week, Levi fell in love with the 2016 CVO Breakout. He felt an allure with the paint and the power of the 110 motor. After a less-than-par experience at a Florida dealership, his mother said, ”Let’s call Open Road H-D and see if they have the CVO Breakout model!” Mike was thrilled to hear from the Lee family once again. Yes, we had the model... same color and all!
So that’s the story of how Levi, currently making his home in Kentucky, made his way all the way up to Fond du Lac with his parents to now get the bike of his dreams. As Sherry said, “what’s eight hours amongst friends when you know you’re going to have fun, be treated respectfully, and get a second-to-none buying experience?”
What’s next? Well, Don and Sherry have four boys who have all grown up around powersports. With mom and dad’s support, each of their sons aspires to ride and own his own Harley-Davidson® motorcycle. We’ve assured that as soon as Joey, Josh, and Grant are ready, we’ll be happy to see them at Open Road H-D. One down… three to go!
Don and Sherry love the feel of riding as a family and get excited when their boys can join them during Daytona bike week: “ There is such a pride and an excitement when we’re all in the saddle ready to ride -- exploring new places and enjoying the open road!”
