Don Taylor Gears Up for Another Successful Season on a Harley-Davidson XR 750 Motorcycle

Six-time Canadian Motorcycle Association National Dirt Track Champion and number one plate holder Donald Taylor has recently confirmed that he will once more ride for Deeley Harley-Davidson® Canada.

Taylor actually broke the news at the December Toronto Motorcycle Show in a live interview on the stage of Full Throttle Theatre. “I couldn’t be happier,” the young champion enthused. “I just came from the Harley-Davidson display, and it looks like I’m going to be riding the XR 750 for them again. We have to discuss details, but I’d say it looks pretty good.”

Taylor, who recently relocated to his new home in Port Colbourne, Ontario, commented jokingly, “I guess you could say I’m still happy. […] Riding for Deeley has become more important to me over the years. I’ve gotten to know the people there and they are very good to me, and I’m trying my best for them, and [for] all my sponsors really. I won every race but one in Canada on the XR 750, and I finished second in the other race after a real bad start. I had a lot of help from George Evans and Steve Beattie. George made sure the XR 750 stayed
bulletproof, and Steve is so good with suspension. Every time I rode the XR, I felt more comfortable on it.”

Reminded of his season-ending runaway win in the CMA Short Track Shootout, Taylor commented, “That’s a perfect example. Everyone thought the Harley® [bike] was going to be too much to handle on the short track, but I thought it was great. I’ve honestly never felt so comfortable on the XR. It was a great way to end the season.”

Taylor plans to continue his record run of Canadian dirt track crowns in 2010 with his continued partnership with Deeley Harley-Davidson Canada, as well as with the valued support of Clare’s Harley-Davidson of Niagara, Scorpion Helmets, Nexo Sports, Performance Under Gear, Twenty Six Suspension, CP Pistons, and Vortex Racing.

In acknowledgement of its racing heritage, Deeley Harley-Davidson® Canada is pleased to renew its efforts in support of the national sport of dirt track racing in Canada. We are incredibly proud to be able to back such a promising and inspiring young racer and we look forward to many successful races this season on his XR 750 in Canada as well as south of the border.
