D&S Harley-Davidson of Phoenix has received a Harley-Davidson Motor Co. Silver Bar & Shield Circle of Achievement award for 2013.
D&S Harley-Davidson — the only authorized Harley-Davidson dealership between Eugene and Redding, Calif. — earned the award for the West Region based on motorcycle and related product sales performance, customer evaluation and operational measures. It places the local shop in the top 50 among more than 600 dealerships in the United States.
The motorcycle shop, at 3846 S. Pacific Highway, is a family affair. Dick and Marie Martin launched the business in Central Point during 1971. They moved the operation to Phoenix in 1975. Their three daughters — Terrie Martin, Sandy Unruh and Kim O'Toole — have since moved into ownership roles.
D&S has received Bar & Shield awards in the past, but this is the first medal. In 2004, the dealership became the first in the nation to receive Harley-Davidson Motor Company's Community Service Award.
