October Already?? Don't put the bike away Just yet!

We can’t believe we are making our way into October already!  Where has this summer gone?  It seems like yesterday we felt the chilly spring air and smelled the aroma of freshly cut grass.  We worked our way through many hot days and even took a little time off for some rest and relaxation.  Though the air is now chilly, the leaves are starting to change colors and fall to the ground, we know the inevitable is around the corner.

Fortunately we’re troopers and ride year round, right?  A little cold air isn’t going to hurt us, which is why Hot Metal Harley-Davidson and the Mon Valley HOG chapter have rides scheduled well into December.

Looking back to September, Hot Metal Harley-Davidson enjoyed Bike Nights at Quaker Steak and Lube in Pleasant Hills, we spent four days at the South Park Rib Fest and got to meet many new people. The Ladies ride was another huge success this year and we will be looking into doing more with the ladies at various functions and rides to come.

Hot Metal Harley-Davidson also celebrated our Wide Open House with a pre-owned clearance event and demo rides on the 2013 Harley-Davidson Models.  The Mon Valley Hog Chapter rode out to the Smicksburg Apple Festival and held their monthly Dinner Ride.  As they say “Ride to Eat, Eat to Ride”, right?

During the month of October, you will see some changes and updates to both Hot Metal’s website and Facebook page.  We’ll be adding more videos walking around the new models, more pictures of bike customers and their rides, and a way for you to become even more interactive with Hot Metal Harley-Davidson.  If you are on Facebook, you can now see our real-time motorcycle inventory.

Even though we are ramping up our on-line presence, we will still have rides with the Mon Valley HOG chapter and a Witch Hunt at the end of the month on the 27th. Some of the rides include a beautiful fall ride to the Bedford County Fall Festival on October 7th.  On October 14th, there will be a ride to check out the fall foliage and smell the crisp air of the Laurel Mountains.  And once again this year the HOG chapter will do their Haunted House Ride on October 20th.

Be sure to check out our website at and for upcoming events and and news from the dealership.  You can also listen to Road Hogs with Rocky Marks on 102.5 WDVE Saturday Mornings at 6AM.  Its motorcycle talk mixed with music and comedy tracks from the DVE morning show.  If you miss the show, you can always listen to the rebroadcast on Hot Metal’s website or at
