Cox's Harley Davidson Testimonial

To The Staff of Coxs Harley-Davidson Asheboro, NC, I would like to share my Gratitude and Appreciation to all of the staff of Coxs Harley-Davidson, Asheboro, NC, for assisting me through the years in maintaining my 2008 Softail Custom. Coxs is the #1 Dealership in North Carolina for their Professional Sales, Parts Department and Service Department, giving to each customer loyalty, pride and trust to each and every customer. I recently spoke to Eddie, Stacey, Larry, Rob, Mark and others during my recent interest in upgrading my bike from a 96 cubic inch to a 103 cubic inch utilizing their Big Bore Kit. I again, was extremely impressed with all of the staff and Stacey the Mechanic whom rebuilt the engine. I can't emphasize enough how Cox Harley-Davidson continues to provide "EXCELLENT" customer service each and every time my bike is serviced. I hope this review will awaken many bikers to trust in the service provided by Coxs Harley-Davidson. Again Thanks To All At Coxs Harley-Davidson, Sincerely, Ronnie Cheek
