The Great Doc Hopkins, Doc's Harley Davidson's

From the Shawano Leader
You need to go to the Shawano Leader to get the whole story on Doc. You have to compare him to Barnum and Baily and Apple for promoting their business.

Allison Schumacher had no trouble getting the motorcycle to an upright position at the Ladies Garage Party at Doc’s Harley Davidson east of Bonduel.

“It really gives those girls confidence,” said Steve “Doc” Hopkins, owner of Doc’s Harley Davidson and sponsor of the Wolf River HOG chapter.

The garage party, which attracted several women for snacks and fun, is just one of the many activities Hopkins has used to grow from a small building on Richmond Street in Shawano to a now sprawling complex of buildings just east of Bonduel.

Hopkins moved the business in April 1998, because Harley-Davidson wants its dealers to be located on a major highway. The move has been successful.

“It was a good one,” he said of the location."

If you head west on HWY 29 out of Green Bay, you need to stop and say hello. I never owned a Harley, let alone a bike, never was to Doc's Harley Davidson's or ever meet Doc himself but from what I hear in those parts, it's well worth the stop to
Doc's Harley Davidson's.
