Tim Robinson

Owner Operator

 

By now you may have heard that there has been a change in ownership at your Harley-Davidson dealership in Manassas, Virginia. We are now Bull Run Harley-Davidson. Timmy Robinson is the Owner/ Operator of Bull Run HD. He has lived in Manassas for the last 20 plus years and been a motorcycle enthusiast for the last 30 plus years. Timmy could not be more excited about this opportunity. He has been a customer in search of a place to escape, to find a place to shop, browse, service his bike, or to just hang out and talk to people who share his passion. Timmy is part of the Lindsay Automotive Group, but wants to be clear, this is not going to be a car dealership that sells motorcycles. We will carry the benefit of being part of a larger, family owned, dealer group when it comes to putting on social events like poker runs, live music, chili cook-offs, and more! The potential is endless. Stop by and find out for yourself!

General Manager Chris Taylor began his career at the Bull Run Harley-Davidson location in 1993, starting off in the Parts Dept. and moved to the Sales Dept. two years later. In 2003, he accepted the position as GM which means he is on the move, on call, and on the spot whenever anyone needs him. Why does he think Bull Run is miles above the rest when it comes to service? “We have an award winning team of dedicated employees that go the extra mile to make sure that our customers are satisfied.”

At about the age of 7, John's folks bought him his first motorcycle, a 1970’s used Honda Z50. This is when his passion for riding began.  Through the years he upgraded bikes but things really changed when John bought his first Harley Davidson.  He says. "The experience, the wind in my hair (what little I have) and the camaraderie totally changed.  Having owned a Harley Davidson for many years it makes me proud to be part of the team at Bull Run Harley Davison.  We look forward to seeing you at one of our many upcoming events."

Richard Walters who joined the Parts Department a few years ago understands having that customer’s part in stock is paramount. “If we don’t have a part, we’ll get it,” said Walters, a Vietnam vet who rides a 2015 Electric Glide Ultra Low. “People gather here for Rolling Thunder and many other rides, it is a good meeting place,” said Walters. Bull Run Harley-Davidson is one of the launch sites for the annual Rolling Thunder ride into Washington, D.C.

Service Technician

 

“I’ve been a mechanic all my life.” Bull Run Harley-Davidson customers may not know Earl Ditamore by name but they won’t forget him once they meet him. Gadget, as he is known by his friends and customers, literally cut his teeth on a 1948 Panhead when his parents boiled the stainless steel valve from a bike his father had torn down and let him use it as a teething ring. “I kid you not.” Ditamore began his career at the Manassas location over 20 years ago. “I won’t sell anybody something they don’t need,” says the mechanic who started riding bikes at three and had his first Harley by age 15. If you see a 2004 Softail sporting a license “Gadget” give him a wave.

“We have more experience here, than any shop in the area,” said Calvin Thayer who joked that his crew has more experience between four guys, than the bigger shops who have 25 mechanics on payroll. Thayer’s 37 years of experience as technician means he has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to pinpointing a problem. Thayer, who has been with Harley-Davidson in Manassas for nine years, prefers to ride his 2001 FLHT alone on the open road.
