Cox's Harley Davidson Testimonial

We drove all the way from Fayetteville... sure glad we did! Excellent buying experience! Knowledgable salesmen found us the bike we were looking for... 2015 Limited. On second visit to actually pick-up the bike we had a full-day experience... from the Cox new owner "Poker Run" to the 1+ hour bike familiarization it was enjoyable and informative. We're very happy with our new "addition" and definitely consider Cox HD our "home" dealership.
