In a world where motorcycling has become an integral part of human life, there are motorcycle dealers that are merely present in the marketplace, and there are others who have set themselves apart from the rest in becoming “destination” dealers. A destination dealer has become known to many as a ride’s final destination that encompasses tremendous views along its route of travel. Cox’s Harley-Davidson® has been and remains a true destination dealer, located in the heart of the Piedmont-Triad region of North Carolina.
The original facility is located in a two-bay garage situated next door to Recil's home, located on Crestview Church Road in rural Asheboro, NC. Recil is also employed as a mechanic at a local mill during the day and runs the dealership in the evenings.

Cox Harley Davidson and all the staff are awesome. I tried to purchase a bike at Smokin' Harley Davidson and the salesman hardly tried to get me on a bike. My wife called Cox's that same day and they were about to close and told us to come the next weekend.The weekend came and we went to Cox's and Stephen worked and worked to get me on a bike. They stayed open 3 hrs later to make sure I had the bike, the insurance and that I was all set. I rode away on my new bike. I will never go anywhere but Cox's Harley Davidson for all my bike needs and my wife's bike needs. Thanks again to all your staff for being so helpful and being #1 customer efficient.
