Rider Spotlight: Dan and Dino

Meet Dan - 2021 Snake Venom Street Glide Special 

Dan, a long-time rider recently bought a 2021 Snake Venom Street Glide Special back in June. He purchased his first Harley six years ago and since then owned several bikes. He started riding with a Road King and now owns his 2021 and a 2014 Street Glide Special.

Dan started off riding over 25 years ago on a little dirt bike. He rode other models and worked himself up to riding Harley's. Since purchasing his 1st H-D six years ago, he has put an impressive 20,000 miles between all his bikes.

Dan has enjoyed riding over the years because it helps free his soul and clear his mind. Dan served as a Marine, and it was kind of his therapy after serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. 

When Dan was looking to customize his bike, he prioritized the motor first. He also looked for better clutches. Dan has also put a few accents on his new bikes like 16-inch apes, different speakers, and saddlebags. Dan really isn’t into the fancy customizations and tries to stay with the traditional look of the Harley.

Dan Flynn loves Open Road Harley-Davidson for its customer service. When Dan walks through the door, everybody's got a smile on her face. He just feels that sense of camaraderie. Flynn said, “the customer service is top-notch.”

He enjoys working with Shawn in Open Road H-D’s parts department. Flynn says, “Shawn is accurate when he talks and knows what he’s talking about when it comes to parts for Harley’s.” 

Dan has been a customer of Open Road H-D for years. He has always had a good experience with all the departments and trusts their mechanics. When he walks through the door, the atmosphere is just awesome. Dan has been to a lot of Harley dealers and says, “Open Road Harley-Davidson is top notch and a favorite.

Meet Dino - 2021 Billiard Teal Road Glide Special

Dino started off riding dirt bikes and worked himself to get his fifth Harley-Davidson back. In August, Dino purchased a 2021 Billiard Teal Road Glide Special! Since then, he has made extreme upgrades to transform his bike into something special.

Before purchasing his Road Glide Special, he owned Street Glides, Road Kings, and Sportsters. He has enjoyed riding all his bikes but admits his new 2021 will probably be his new favorite. He loves all the new customizations. 

Dino has put a lot of work and creativity into the customizations on his bike. He made upgrades like Performance Machine Brand Revel 21” big wheels, Legend Suspension, Chrome front end, 14-inch Factory 47 handlebars, and Tab Performance exhaust. He chose those upgrades to increase performance and comfort for the bike and himself. Dino chose to go with the best and more unique styling options on the bike to fit his style.  

Dino enjoys riding because it gives him alone time and a chance to really get lost in his thoughts. He also enjoys the social side and the camaraderie of riding. His dream ride is to hop on his bike and attend Sturgis and ride along Route 66. 

Dino appreciates the customer service at Open Road Harley-Davidson. He said everyone is friendly. The owner Pete helped him specifically to take care of his exhaust. Dino also loves the selection of MotorClothes. Open Road H-D has a friendly staff, and everyone is willing to help and find people with the right bike.
