“We are excited to introduce Southern Thunder Harley-Davidson into our family of dealerships,” said Parsons. “We have a real opportunity to leverage the seasonality of the Arizona and Mississippi markets and the talent at all three dealerships to deliver a world-class customer experience.”

Riding enthusiasts can look forward to an expanded calendar of events, bike nights, rides and community focused rallies. In addition, the dealership says it will add talent, inventory, and the latest technology and service equipment to move the dealership forward in its ability to anticipate and exceed the needs of customers.

“We sell fun,” said Parsons. “Harley-Davidson is a lifestyle brand and Southern Thunder will be a lifestyle dealership, similar to the Harley-Davidson of Scottsdale store, but with a high dose of Southern hospitality.”
