STEVE DRANE – CALLED TO THE HALL


STEVE DRANE – CALLED TO THE HALL

Local Victoria hero and owner of Steve Drane Harley-Davidson, Steve Drane who was inducted into the Canadian Motorcycle Hall of Fame this past September

Called to the Hall  There may be someone left in the British Columbia riding community who’s not familiar with the name Steve Drane, but it’s unlikely. The Victoria native has been synonymous with motorcycles for decades in this province, where his Steve Drane Harley-Davidson was established in 1987. The man is an institution here, and now he has taken his rightful place in the Canadian Motorcycle Hall of Fame, to which he was inducted during a ceremony, Sept. 27, in Edmonton.

For those who love the road, professional truck driving is a satisfying and rewarding career.
