The owners of Southern Tier Harley-Davidson are expanding their business operations.

They have bought Independence Harley-Davidson in College Station, Texas.

Larry Brooks and Jeff Coghlan now own three dealerships, including here in Greater Binghamton, Painted Post, and Texas.

Brooks said the opportunity made sense from a business perspective.

He's excited to help breathe new life into the Harley store in College Station.

"We're huge fans of Harley Davidson as a corporation and as a retail marketing producer, because they stand behind the dealer network very strongly. They are very protective of their dealers and support their dealers very well and they share the same vision that we do," said Brooks.

Southern Tier Harley is at 1149 Front Street in the Town of Chenango.

Brooks said one of the unique things about his shop is that people are actually invited into the service area to see repairs done on their motorcycles.
