When Storage Wars auctioneer Dan Dotson isn’t working, there’s a good chance he’s riding one of his prized Harley-Davidsons. The reality TV star posts often about the show on social media, but he also gives fans an inside look into his daily life as well. Once again, Dotson showed off his newest ride this afternoon while highlighting some upgrades to the bike.
In November, Storage Wars returned for its 13th season with Dan and his wife, Laura Dotson, at the helm of the show. The popular A&E reality series follows the auctioneering couple as they sell off unpaid storage units across California. The couple are real-life auctioneers who have both been in the business for decades.
In fact, they even met each other at an auction, fell in love, and tied the knot back in 2000. The pair own their own business together, American Auctioneers, which is a full-service auction company in Riverside, California. They know the ins and outs of storage locker auctions well and pitched a reality series based on them to A&E. The network signed off on the show, and Storage Wars debuted in 2010. Ever since, the series has been one of A&E‘s most popular shows.
When Dan isn’t auctioning off storage units and filming Storage Wars, he tends to let off steam by taking a ride on one of his several motorcycles. Dotson has at least three Harley-Davidsons in his collection and is an avid rider whenever he has the time.
Most recently, Laura gifted her husband a brand new Harley for his birthday. Dan’s been in love with it ever since and frequently posts about it on Twitter. On Monday afternoon, he shared a few updates to his bike. He added a new rear fender and new bags, and shared that he’s closing in on 1,000 miles on the bike. Dotson also shared a 360-degree video clip of his new Harley, which might be the best view we’ve gotten of it yet.
‘Storage Wars’ Star Celebrates Birthday With New Harley-Davidson
As previously mentioned, Laura Dotson made her husband’s whole year when she gave Dan a new Harley-Davidson for his birthday. On November 23rd of last year, Dotson turned 59 years old, and it’s a birthday he won’t forget anytime soon.
Laura knew exactly what to get Dan for his 59th, and her husband couldn’t contain his excitement after adding a third iron horse to his already impressive fleet of Harleys. On the morning of his birthday, Dan shared a heartfelt post on Twitter about his wife and his present.
Dotson was all smiles after getting his new motorcycle and called it the “best birthday present ever.” He shared two photos on Twitter along with his birthday message. The first is of himself and Laura smiling for the camera. The second showed off his brand new Harley-Davidson Road Glide Special. “Wow, I’m just blown away,” Dotson said of the gift. As he added in a hashtag, Dotson was already looking forward to his next adventure on his new ride.
