the logo will be used as the corporate brand identity for the parent company that owns 8 of the largest Harley Dealerships in the world. The Owners of the company are 2 young 30 year old brothers that reflect the new motorcycle lifestyle to a t (they are NOT long haired, bearded leather wearing biker gangs) they are clean cut professionals that you will find Heli skiing in Canada one week, and the Kentucky Derby the next. They are more X Games than Hells Angels so the logo should reflect that attitude.
