We've all met motorcycle cheapskates. They just don't think motorcycling is something worth spending serious money on. They spend their money on supposedly important things...(their) cheapness cheapens the sacrifices I made to learn what I know about motorcycles...to them, motorcycles are toys, something you have if everything else in your life is perfect, locked down so tight that nothing can possibly go wrong...Enjoy your bike, cheapskate...You won't be a motorcyclist...a motorcyclist is more than a person with a motorcycle. A motorcyclist suffers a bit, makes sacrifices for his machine...Motorcycling isn't an activity served by rational thought or common sense... - Gabe Ets Hokin, Citybike, 08/05 (excertps combined from a larger editorial)

"I was looking to buy a Willie G magnet. Turns out, these suckers were really hard to find. Tony's customer support was outstanding! He took my order over the phone and set me up to have them shipped out. Thanks for the great service. MSgt Patrick Garman Hampton VA."

"I called Santa Maria H.D. to ask if I could store my bike at the dealership for three days prior to the state rally opening day to attend a wedding in L.A. and then come back for the rally opening. J.C. at the dealership was very helpful with my problem and solved the problem for me. He was very helpful, a really nice person to work with. I'm a member of chapter 295 and hope I can repay the favor. With this kind of service I believe everything I've heard about Santa Maria H.D. "

"I posted an ad on Craigslist looking for a DRZ 400SM. I was looking all over CA for one in my price range and I get a call from a Harley Dealer. They had the kind of bike I wanted, in my color and they were willing to cut me a deal. I was expecting some kind of game or hard sales pitch, but they were phenomenal! They took amazing care of me and answered every question I had. When they ran into a problem with expired tags on the bike they just dealt with it, I wouldn't even have known except for the FULL disclosure they gave me. Overall, I spent several thousand dollars and I would do it again gladly if the experience went half as well as it did this time."

"We live in Mexico City and are members of the Santa Fe Chapter (Mexico DF). With our FLHTCU 2008 we are on a 4 weeks trip and in Santa Monica our bike started with problems. The yellow engine light got on. Sometimes the speedo went to zero, some hardware of the right saddlebag got lost, the RoadTech Zumo 665 got not charged anymore, the brake lever hittex the exhaust (noisy) - unbelivable but all happened within 2 days. We found in the web page of Santa Maria Harley Davidson several very positive comments plus the info that the Holiday Inn Hotel is just 300 meters away from the Harley Shop. So we came to Santa Maria 260 Km north of Santa Monica. The attention and professionalism of the entire team in Santa Maria Harley-Davidson is on absolutely top level. Especially Rick and Dennis gave the attention to our bike and indeed it was not easy to repair all the points. We said that the yellow light and the GPS Trouble are the only important points and perhaps the lock for the saddle bag. But with a smile they fixed all and everything and within a short time. In one day all got perfecly finished. Solving all the problems is one very positive point but on top one can enjoy a such friendly attention you feel unbelievable well, when one arrives very stressed with a sick bike. Rick and Dennis are the best I have seen in so many years of driving. And I drive bikes since 1968 (who remebers Horex Regina?). To cut a long story short: Whenever you need a professional solution combined with a very personal and friendly attention, go to Santa Maria Harley-Davidson and ask for Rick and Dennis! Klemens and Monika Windisch - And now Kickstand Up and lets enjoy the Harley in wonderful California!"

" Dear Santa Maria Harley-Davidson, On July 16, 2011 my husband and I were visiting Santa Maria for a wedding of the Ostini/Gorman families. We stayed in the Santa Maria Holiday Inn. We were so excited to look out our window and see a Harley Davidson store right behind us. Since our grown kids have Harleys and love for us to bring them back 'toys' from every Harley store we visit...of course we had to visit your place. We did purchase a couple of items....keeping them to shirts/hats due to the fact we had to fly back to Denver...but the nice surprise was your sales associate, Desiree Kozlowski! It was so fun to visit with her as she was such a happy and fun and alive person. We felt very well taken care of and left very happy thanks to her! She went out of her way to make us feel welcome. I did have to go back in to tell her something and we shared pictures of her Daughter and our Granddaughter. I had been admiring her jewelry as is was so sparkly and to my wonderful surprise she took off her bracelet (her Green Bay Packers one) that she had made and gave it to me. She said she wanted me to have it! I was so surprised and pleased and I just wanted you to know what a generous and sweet employee you have. I wore it to the wedding that night! We're not sure when we'll be back to Santa Maria but given the fact we have family there, I'm sure we'll make it back and we'll be sure to stop in. We just wanted you to know how special Desiree is. Thank you for listening, Sincerely, Suanne and Bob Garioto Suebg43@aol.com "

"I would like to thank all the staff in the Santa Maria Harley-Davidson Service Department. They were courteous, professional and as you will see below, went well out of their way to make my most recent service appointment both a pleasant and satisfying experience. I would especially like to thank Mandy, Rick, and of course the man who turns the wrenches, Dennis for taking such good care of my needs. I had come in for a routine tire change, both front and rear. It was another gorgeous riding day here on the Central Coast and I was anxious to get the new tires installed and be on my way. Now the rest of the story. First, despite the fact that one of the Mechanics was on vacation, Mandy and Rick were able to work me into the compressed schedule on a Saturday. Did I mention there were out-of-town rider emergencies. Because of the fine riding weather, there were fellow riders traveling through our area who had flats, and some minor mechanical issues, who were also being taken care of in a courteous and friendly atmosphere. However, I digress; back to point of my communication. Next, during the process of getting my tires changed out, it was discovered that the rear tire that I had purchased on sale a few weeks earlier, was the incorrect tire. It was a subtle variation in application and fitment, the detail of which I had missed but was duly noted by the service staff, which averted a potentially serious safety issue. To add to the complexity of what began as a seemingly routine service, one of the tubes required because I run traditional spoked wheels on my old-school Springer, was out of stock. Because of the delays, I was approached by the Service Advisors and was briefed about the two problems. At this point, I was offered a rental at no expense, so that I could continue my planned day-ride, home delivery of my bike after service was completed, and a ride to get some lunch or have something brought back to me. To quote the Russian-born, American comedian Yakov Smirnoff, What a country. Since I live locally, I politely declined the generous offers, but I did have Rick drop me off at home for lunch while he chased parts. He picked me up on the way back to the Dealership thereby obviating the need to deliver my bike to the house later. Talk about Customer Service, and going the extra mile, these guys and gals rock. During my visit, I had a chance to speak to Tony, one of the great Parts Department staff as well as J.C. who has been a part of the sales staff since I bought my 100th Anniversary Springer in 2003. Despite the busy Saturday, they found the time to greet me and answer all my questions about the latest technology and parts applications while I was waiting. Later, problems resolved, tire installation and road test complete, I was back on my motorcycle and on the road feeling safe and secure with my new tires and a fresh safety inspection; not to mention feeling very fortunate about being a Santa Maria Harley-Davidson customer. I have been to many other Harley shops for Service and Parts in my many years of riding, but I must say that the Staff, and of course the General Manager, Martin, at my Home Dealership, Santa Maria Harley-Davidson, reflect great credit upon themselves and further maintain and embody the Harley-Davidson family spirit and tradition.

"I broke the right lower switch housing on my95 FLHTC. Sun Harley here in CO said that Harley had deemed the part obsolete. Joe searched all the dealersips and located this hard to find part there, at Santa Maria. You guys shipped it out right away for me so I could get the bike back up. I was not even a direct customer of yours yet you took time out to ensure I got my part as soon as possibe. You can't beat that. Thanks. MJ"

"I often visit your store. Your people are very nice and knowledgable. Great having you in our neighborhood - just up the road for me. I only gave you a 4 because after a service, my bike had some loose stuff after a service and dirt & oil that wasnt cleaned off. other than the one incident I would give service another shot. It would be nice also to see your general service pricing for oil changes, tun-ups, etc. on your web site. "

"I found my Road Glide at the best price at Santa Maria Harley. I applied for financing, got the terms I wanted and added custom parts to my bike the same day. Since then, my friends have purchased a Softail, an Electra Glide and a Fat Boy too. I would recommend this dealership to anyone; it was worth the drive from Los Angeles!"

I went to the service department and it was promptly handled. That is excellent service, which occurred on Tuesday afternoon, June 17, 2008. Thank you very much. Dennis Hennessy"

"September 4, 2007 *** Santa Maria Harley - I sent this letter to H-D and thought you might also like to see it - *** Mr. James L. Ziemer Chief Executive Officer, Harley-Davidson, Inc. 3700 W. Juneau Avenue Milwaukee, WI 53208 *** *** Dear Sir, *** Subject: Character Defined *** It is Labor Day weekend, and my misfortune to find myself stranded hundreds of miles away from home with a crippled Hot Rod Bagger. Here I am, riding solo in the coastal town of Santa Maria, California, and daylight is beginning to fade. The suspicion I have, of having developed a major exhaust leak, is confirmed as I stop for fuel and give my í97 ElectraGlide a thorough inspection. There, protruding from the rear cylinder head, is a barren exhaust stud. No nut, simply gone. Thankfully, the town of Santa Maria is known to me. It is early Saturday evening, 6:15 pm, and I am making a run to the Santa Maria Harley-Davidson dealership. Sad to say, regular business hours have past and I appear to be S.O.L. (Sorely Out of Luck, or something like that.) The parking lot is empty, except for the presence of one rather pristine looking RoadGlide that is parked in the rear. So here I sit, next to the immaculate RoadGlide, patiently waiting for what I hope will be an employee emerging from within the dealership. And as luck would have it, I didnít have to wait long. The owner emerges before I can finish my fine American cigarette. Given the situation, one can easily imagine the conversation that ensues as I introduce myself to the man. He listens patiently to my plight; then, introduces himself as Michael. As for his response to my predicament, it may as well have been scripted from a Harley-Davidson service commercial. Twice Michael enters and returns from the secured Harley-Davidson dealership to wrench on my bike as the sun gives-way to the evening sky. And as if all this isnít enough, he ends our encounter by offering to intercede on my behalf at the local hotel as I am trying to secure a room for the night. (It is Labor Day Weekend, and nearly all of the hotels are booked-up.) With a room secured and my Baggerís thunderous exhaust fully repaired, we say our goodbyes, each agreeing, Itís Miller Time. It is only then, during my sincere offering of Thanks (and only after requesting a business card) that I learn I am dealing with the dealershipís General Manager, Michael Manthey. Character described: Doing the right thing when nobody is watching. And that, my good friend, is how people like Mike and I Roll. With respect to character, Michael Manthey: Walks the Walk. And it is my sincere pleasure to share with the same with you; that which you should already know. Thanks again Mike. Best Regards, Terry "

I have purchased two Harley Davidsons from Santa Maria Harley Davidson. I am blown away by the high quality of people, service and product.
