Sponsoring Dealer - Paul Minster

"It's not a job, it's a dream"

Born in Traralgon in 1970 and rode my 1st motorcycle in 1974, it was a Honda Z50. I still have it in my shed and it starts 1st kick every time. I have been into motorcycles all my life. I love the feeling of walking to my bike and the excitement of getting on and riding away. It has been like that my whole life and I hope that feeling only stops when I stop. I've been into Harley-Davidson since I picked up my Dads brand new Heritage Softail Classic in 1994 at Harley Heaven In Dandenong. I purchased this bike off him in 2000 and since then I've been completely hooked. I was so hooked I dreamt Harley non stop and one day about 12 years ago I contacted H-DA and pleaded my case for a local dealer in Traralgon. It was a long drawn out detailed frustrating but exciting process - and here we all are...

I'm more than approachable and value your input on how we can serve you better as a dealership. As the dealer principal I want nothing more than to run my business and have fun along the way, lots of fun. 
Ride every day and live your legend.

Paul.
