Now that spring has finally arrived, there's no better time to shop for that new motorcycle.
B & B Harley Davidson, located on Route 98 in Nutter Fort, features 38 models for the 2013 season, including the popular FLHX Street Glide.
"It's our most popular bike," said shop owner Delores Terango, whose family has sold Harleys to central West Virginia riders since 1977.

New for the 2013 season is the Harley Davidson FXSB Softail Break-out model. The bike has proven to be a hot commodity among riders.
"We had one here for a day, and it was gone," she said.
The store is open from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday. B & B features about 50 models in its showroom, ranging from the Softails to the Sportsters, Touring and Glide varieties.
The store also features a full service department. A full line of Harley Davidson accessories and merchandise also is stocked, with everything from T-shirts to jackets for both men and women to highly sought collectibles, such as glassware, jewelry and logo poker chips.
"We have people that have come from all over just for the poker chips," Terango said.
B & B Harley Davidson offers special deals throughout the year, and those shopping for a bargain are urged to check out the store's website at wwwbandbharleydavidson.com. The store also keeps a Facebook page updated with the various happenings for riders throughout the region.
Terango said the shop will offer a "boot camp" of sorts for young and inexperienced riders. It will begin at noon April 26.
"It's for people that don't have a motorcycle, but want to learn about them and how to ride one," she said.
B & B Harley Davidson accepts all major credit cards and personal checks. Financing is available through Harley Davidson. With the purchase of a new motorcycle, the rider automatically is registered in the national Harley Owners Group. For a few bucks more, the rider can join the local chapter, a group that often sets up its own rides through West Virginia's best scenery.
B & B Harley Davidson periodically offers a safe-riding course during the year, and those who successfully complete it can easily obtain a motorcycle rider's license from the state Department of Motor Vehicles.
