Clarksville, TN – On Saturday, May 5th, Appleton Harley-Davidson held their Spring Open House. The event House was a fun fest with numerous appearances by three members of the Purffect Angelz, a dance group featured on America’s Got Talent, Full Throttle, and many other venues.
Other performances included Buck McCoy who performs in a similar manner to his idol, Tim McGraw, and RB Stone who has produced 15 albums, toured 32 countries, 5 continents selling over 40,000 albums, most of them at his shows.The lunch time crowd loved the Mexican food from Don Pancho’s Mexican Restaurant in celebration of Cinco de Mayo. Also available was ice cream at the booth of the “real” Santa Claus who raises funds throughout the year to buy toys for kids as he visits many locations with his wife, Mrs. Santa. The Budweiser booth was also a favorite stop.
There was a Dyno Horsepower shootout. The entry fee is $50.00 and the winner gets a $200.00 gift card.
As if that weren’t enough, all Harley-Davidson discontinued motor clothes were on sale up to 70% off the regular price.
Tia and Danny Suiter took over management of Appleton Harley-Davidson on 41-A By-pass in April, 2011. Tia, who was formerly a bank teller, thought she was going to be in culture shock because typically people imagine a bank as being refined and a motorcycle community as being some variety of Hells Angels. Wrong!
“I can’t tell you how many times I was cursed when I worked for a mortgage lender,” Tia recalls. “People seemed to think I was trying to cheat them out of their money, or I’d see some wife put another man’s name on her bank account and clean it out before her husband knew what happened! When I began working here at Appleton’s, I soon learned that foul language just doesn’t happen here. Our customers, for the most part, are retired people who are enjoying life and are finally doing something for themselves after their children are grown. It is a pleasure to do business here!”
Appleton Harley-Davidson is the center for as many as five rides a day for charity. Typically, Saturday during their Open House the Iron Order and Iron Order Maidens were starting their military run for Relay for Life at noon.
In case you haven’t visited Appleton’s, you are in for a surprise. You can buy all kinds of terrific clothes, jewelry, and accessories featuring the Harley-Davidson logo. Also every type of part for your motorcycle is on hand too.
A 48 Harley will be given away to celebrate the Sixtieth Year Anniversary at Appleton’s in the near future. Everyone with a purchase is automatically entered in the drawing.
On May 10th, another special event for Relay for Life will be the focus of the day at Appleton’s. “Wild Hogs,” the fantastic motorcycle movie, will be shown for a donation of $5.00 to Relay for Life, a special charity for Appleton’s since two of the founders both died from cancer. Free popcorn will be available; both beer and wine will be for sale.
Another special project of Tia and Danny Suiter is the promotion of a new law to require all motorcycle rides 19 and under to take extensive training on motorcycle safety before acquiring a license to drive the vehicle. They ask for all responsible riders to get behind this proposal so that our young riders can’t just jump on a bike, pop the clutch, hit the gas, and take off! After all, these bikes weigh hundreds of pounds and need to be ridden responsibly.
Appleton’s Harley-Davidson has been a responsible force in our community for the past 60 years. Stop in to meet Tia and Danny and see if there’s a Harley in your future. They’re good people!
