Empire Harley-Davidson To Sponsor AMA Pro Harley-Davidson Racer Shane Narbonne

Shane Narbonne (46).

MOB Racing's Shane Narbonne got a most welcome surprise and sponsor when Empire Harley Davidson of New Rochelle, NY agreed to support his AMA Pro Vance & Hines Harley Davidson XR1200 effort for the 2013 season!

"I want to thank Empire's GM Kyle Hildebrand and the Friend family for joining our effort this season, it means a lot especially coming from what I consider to be a local dealership chain being from the New England area myself, you know! I can't wait to come out to your new store in NY and meet everyone there and have a chance to show your customers the MOB Racing XR1200 first hand!" says #46 Shane Narbonne.

Empire Harley Davidson is owned and operated by Cooper Friend. The Friend family has been in the motorcycle business since 1964. Their Harley Davidson dealerships are located in Ellsworth, Orono, & Lewiston in Maine, and their newest one, Empire Harley-Davison is located in New Rochelle, New York.
