Adam Smith and Harley-Davidson:
Adam learned to ride a motorcycle before he learned to ride a bicycle. A 50cc mini bike and a crosstie is all he needed to get started. To date, Adam has ridden over a quarter of a million miles across the US, including scenic rides through Alaska, Sturgis, Daytona, and more.
Adam has a growing collection of antique Harley-Davidson motorcycles that you can see displayed at the dealership.
Adam was born and raised in the DFW area. After a brief stint in the bicycle industry, Adam joined the Harley-Davidson motorcycle business in 1991. In 1996, Adam opened his first Harley-Davidson dealership in Grand Prairie, TX making him the youngest person to own and operate a Harley-Davidson dealership at the age of 22.
