Harley originated in this area in Shreveport as Wallace Harley, but in 1997 Brad and Wade purchased the shop from Mr. Wallace. They then opened a second dealership in Bossier in 2001 on East Texas Street and then in 2008 they opened the new shop which is the current location. The Shreveport location has now been combined with the Bossier location. I have had the honor of working with this group for the past 5 months and have grown to see them as extended family. Every time I walk in the shop I am greeted by the ladies at the front counter with “how have you been” and a huge smile. You can always find the manager Alan with a customer looking to make a purchase whether it be a new or used bike. Today at the 20-year celebration the weather and atmosphere were perfect. They had great music and food and you could even grab a cold beer if you liked. The parking lot was full of bikes of those that came from as far as Minden to be a part of the celebration. I have been to many different events here and this so far was one of the best. You can always expect to receive the same great attitude of service when you walk through the doors. I wish these guys another amazing 20 years of serving the community here in northwest Louisiana. | June 2017 | Thunder Roads Magazine Louisiana 29
