Performance Machine would like to give a nod of the head and a tip of the hat to the folks up at Sound Harley-Davidson in Marysville, Washington. Located at 16212 Smokey Point Blvd., Sound Harley is an ideal stop-off for bikers heading up the coast through Washington en route to Vancouver. The dealership is in a neighborhood that features riding destinations like Whidbey Island, Skagit Valley and the Cascade Loop.
Apparently folks are stopping off on a regular basis, judging from the buzz Sound Harley has been generating recently. For a dealership that’s been in business for less than five years, Sound is stepping up to the plate when it comes to attracting serious Harley riders and nods from other leading organizations.
Take, for example, the dealership’s industry awards. Sound Harley received the 2010 Model Year Platinum Bar & Shield Circle of Achievement Award from Harley-Davidson — an annual award that only goes to six dealerships in the entire nation. And when you consider the competition is among more than 670 other Harley stores in the country, that’s an incredible achievement.
To become a Platinum level dealer, Sound Harley had to display exceptional quality levels in motorcycle and related sales, an exemplary customer evaluation for service and satisfaction, a flawless facility, and a staff of skilled and well-trained employees. And this wasn’t Sound’s first awards hootenanny. The fledgling store preceded its Platinum award with a pair of back-to-back Gold Bar & Shield awards from Harley Davidson — both in 2008 and 2009.
And while awards are an excellent measure of a company’s success, Sound Harley-Davidson’s facilities feature an attractive, modern architecture that seems to force a rider’s handlebars into the parking lot.
The sprawling dealership showcases hundreds of Harley-Davidson’s, and the philosophy of the folks who work there leans toward an insistence that every Harley bike is unique. Nobody rides out of Sound Harley with a bike that looks like anybody else’s. That would explain the aisles and aisles of custom parts — including everything imaginable from Performance Machine.
Sound Harley’s mechanics do a bang-up job of installing our PM Edition program. That means you can buy a popular V-Twin motorcycle with our best-selling products already installed to your specifications. Sound offers two stages of customization, with Stage 1 featuring PM’s forged wheels with matching components; PM-branded accessories, including contour grips, bag latches or the new Super Gas air cleaner. Stage 2 includes all of the above, plus PM’s brake calipers and contour floorboards.
