Ian’s Story

I was a customer of North Coast Ducati before it became North Coast V-twins with the addition of the Harley-Davidson Brand on Friday nights after work customers and Ash would work out where we were riding that weekend.

I started at V-twins the week before the Sydney Olympics in Sept 2000. This also coincided with the launch of the Softail Twin Cam into the market we have seen many changes throughout the brands and the evolution of both premium brands over this time.

My wife Jacqui  and I had our belated  honeymoon riding around Italy we attended World Ducati Week in 2002 and the WSBK at Misano as a guest of Steve Martin, who rode for Pirelli Ducati Team after riding for  North Coast V-twins in the Castrol 6 Hour, I Was also lucky enough to win a trip for Harley- Davidson V-Rod sales to the USA which included Harley- Davidson University courses and time spent with the Vance and Hines Drag race team and Freddy Spencer Riding Academy.

Hence my love for the V-rod platform and Racing the Harley-Davidson V-Rod Destroyer Drag bike at many tracks.

I have had the privilege to work alongside some extremely talented and dedicated staff who have many achievements and experience that only comes with the love of motorcycling and lifestyle along with the brands we sell.
