Tim Eggan

Tim Eggan

Sales/Finance Manager

Hello, my name is Tim Eggan. I have been in the Automotive/Powersports/Motorcycle industry for over 30yrs. I absolutely love this industry and can't imagine doing anything different. I've been riding motorcycles since a little kid. Started off on dirt bikes and then progressed to street bikes. My first street bike was a 1986 Honda Interceptor and now about 20 bikes later I currently ride a 2006 Street Glide Custom (Bought here at Dave's prior to working here!!) I've owned all sorts of styles including Sport Bikes, Dual Sports and Baggers. I personally enjoy them all for different reasons. I have 4 children(5 if you include my dog Stella) and 3 granddaughters which I love spending time with on my days off. I enjoy going to see live music and try to see a good show once a month. I also enjoy playing pool and watching football ( Go Vikings) I am excited to be a part of the Dave's River Valley Harley Davidson Team. If you happen to stop by, please say Hi!!
