Indian Motorcycles are Back in Tulsa
The dealership has been through a few owners in the past couple of years and has seen some rocky times, but since Joyce and Butch have taken over they have added Indian motorcycles to the floor, as well as getting the dealership as a whole back in shape. They bring 37 years of successful business experience to the table from the aircraft and automotive industries. Both are avid riders, but more importantly, they are good people with good, honest business practices.
When talking to them about the bikes themselves, you will find that they are passionate about all the lines they carry. As stated earlier, they already carried the popular Victory and Triumph lines and have now added Indian to their floorplan. The Indian name carries a long line of American history with it and looks to be back to stay this time. The current Indian company has done their homework and is one of the better quality production bikes built today, that I have seen. Most people know the Indian name, and also know they are one of the first American brands, but know little of the history. They were in fact the earliest brand of American motorcycle produced in the U.S.A. and are now making beautiful, quality bikes that you have to see in person to appreciate. So, go see what motorcyclists in 1901 and Burt Munro knew all along. Not to mention that you have the Drakes now standing behind their products.
The Drakes believe in everything they sell. Enough so to offer a free 5 year warranty on all 2009 bikes through the end of September. How is that for believing in your product!
When talking to the always-smiling Joyce Drake, it's hard not to get excited about what is happening with the dealership. They are getting ready to break ground on an additional 5,000 ft of space to be used for parts and accessories, which will result in a total of 12,500 square feet of showroom.
Look up their virtual showroom online at roadhousems.com or drop by and check out the new Indian motorcycles in person, you won't be sorry.
