Growing up, Gary’s dad was a car dealer and had someone trade in two Honda 50 mini bikes, one blue and one red. He remembers getting on them at 8 a.m. and not getting off until the street lights came on. Ever since, his passion for motorcycles has grown and six-years-ago he bought Calgary Harley-Davidson® because Harley’s are the oldest and most prestigious bikes in the world.
His need for speed is evident from his two favourite bikes, the Trask Turbo Speed Glide and his Jim Nazi bar hopper with nitrous oxide. Some of Gary’s most memorable riding experiences were his trip from San Diego on Hwy 1 in California almost all the way to Portland and riding through the beautiful countryside of Italy.
Gary loves riding his bikes and travelling Europe. He counts each day as a blessing and enjoys living life to the fullest as you never know when the good Lord will take it away.

Shay's journey with Harley-Davidson began in 2002 when she participated in a "go to work with your parents" day. Six years later she began an 11-year career at that same dealership in Red Deer, AB. She is new to the city so on her free time she is often out exploring with her 2 dogs and taking in as much live music as she can.
Tayler will tell anybody and everybody who will listen how badly she wants a mid-70's Shovelhead Chopper. Something about an old school springer front-end and a hardtail frame just speaks to her "Wheelie Nelson" soul.

Tayler says she has been fortunate enough to meet many people throughout her life with a passion for riding and she is grateful to call them life-long friends. The lifestyle and camaraderie are what drew Tayler to work for Harley-Davidson in 2017. Outside of work you can either find Tayler wrappped tighter than a burrito watching horror movies or out exploring new hiking trails in the mountains.
