And just 'cause we're so darn proud! We wanted to highlight a few of our employees on their accomplishments and hard work over the past couple months/years.
*Casey Anderson has been employed at Harley-Davidson® of Jamestown since April 13th, 2011. On February 5th,2020 he officially became a certified Master Technician which involves taking 7 instructor led courses as well as the online courses. The instructor led classes require you to travel to Harley-Davidson® University locations (Milwaukee, Orlando, or Phoenix) to take these courses. The classes consist of lecture and then lab work, where you are given work orders and tasks that must be completed correctly, within a given amount of time, "no pressure, right?". You are then graded on your work, which not everyone passes. These classes range from 2-4 days in length, and the 21 online classes that range from 30-60 minutes.
"It is a very humbling experience when you get to take the courses at the original factory in Milwaukee,WI as the fixtures and structure are original and you feel that you have taken a step back in time. It truly makes you realize how long this company has been training technicians." ~Charlene (HDJ's current master Sales Manager and former Technician).
One of Casey's favorite builds was Eric Bertozzi's 2018 Road Glide featured in the picture. He's looking forward to getting his hands on a future build involving Harley-Davidson's new 131 cubic-inch Milwaukee Eight Crate Motor on a 2020 CVO Street Glide.
*Tim Thomas has been employed at Harley-Davidson® of Jamestown since November 30th, 1999! On January 24th, 2020 he officially became a certified Expert Technician through H-D® University. Which again involves many of the instructor led and on-line courses. Tim mostly works in our "Express Lane", which is a no appointment (hour or less) needed service for oil changes, inspections, tire replacements/alignment, and general service needs. You can find Tim at many of our off-site events, so make sure you say HI to him if you spot him.
*Bob (Boo Boo) Baum has been an employee at Harley-Davidson® of Jamestown since April 11th, 2016. He graduated from the Motorcycle Mechanics Institute in Orlando FL in 2014. Recently, he passed the H-D University instructor led course on Air-Cooled Power Train in Milwaukee in January, 2020 making him a H-D® factory trained certified Technician.
