The UK's must-visit motorcycle dealership!

You will find a huge choice of motorcycle and scooter marques together with many leading brands of clothing and accessories at Fowlers.

We stock a massive range of genuine parts and accessories for your bike. There is also a state-of-the-art servicing facility with highly-skilled, factory-trained technicians capable of carrying out all your MOT & servicing needs.

There's probably no motorcycle retailer in the UK - or even Europe - offering customers more choice. For those who wish to travel to visit this truly spectacular dealership, there is a large car park, and Harry's Cafe provides a spacious and relaxing environment in which to kick off your boots and tuck into some delicious grub. The premises are fully
air-conditioned and accessible for disabled people.


Fowlers Motorcycles - History

Since 1926

Fowlers Workshop

Fowlers started life way back in 1926 when Frank and Alice Fowler first opened their cycle shop.
The Great War had ended only eight years earlier and
the General Strike was in full swing. The average wage was £2 a week and a new motorbike would set you
back less than £20.

A few months after it was founded, Harold Fowler joined his parents, introducing motorcycles (which were his passion!) into the business and beginning a family dynasty which continues to this day.

Harold, or Harry as he was known to his peers, was a well-known scrambler (Moto-X rider) and Trials rider in the 1940s and 1950s, with many trophies to his name. A much-respected industry figure, he worked 6 days a week right up to his death in August 2006, aged 94. The dynasty is maintained with Harry’s daughter, Stephanie, who is now joint Managing Director, and his grand-daughter, Sasha, who is Fowlers’ Wholesale & Marketing Manager. “It’s a family business and very much the better for it”,
Harry used to say.

cart

Today, the company is a multi-franchise dealership selling, servicing and repairing new and used motorcycles and scooters as well as retailing clothing, helmets, accessories and spare parts. A separate division of the company is a trade-only distribution business, which all adds up to a multi-million pound company - a far cry from the embryo business established more than three-quarters of a century ago.

The Gang

Although Fowlers is one of the longest established businesses in motorcycling, it is far from rooted in the past. Stephanie says, "Our loyal customers and friendly and knowledgeable staff are Fowlers’ greatest assets, which is why the company invests a huge amount of effort in continuously monitoring and improving customer service and thorough staff training. There is also a keen recognition of the need to keep abreast of the times and take advantage of the latest technologies and trends."

These philosophies are immediately evident when you visit the spectacular new showroom in Bristol. The cutting edge, dream dealership seems a very fitting way to take Fowlers’ vision to the next generation.

Staff Testimonials

 

Pete - Parts Manager

Name: Pete

Job Title: Parts Manager

"In 1975, I started as a trainee mechanic in the motorcycle trade working on Yamaha, Suzuki, Garelli, MZ and Casal. The job consisted of preparing an endless stream of FSIEs and RD250s for the road, although since that time, service work has changed a lot - then it was all points and condensers and decoking two-strokes. My own first big bike was a 1963 T120 Triumph Bonneville costing £250, with an original 6-figure plate, KSH 605 - yes, I wish I still had it now. Later, in 1978, I bought a brand new GS750 Suzuki for £1,378, registration number BYC 981S - some things you just don't forget.

After moving to Bristol, I joined Fowlers on 10th December 1979.
On my first morning, Lionel Fowler, my boss both then and now, directed me to
a large pile of miscellaneous parts, which I promptly identified, part-numbered and
put back on the shelf, while realizing what a great asset my technical training had
been upon moving to a parts department. Also, having worked in small dealers had given an insight into their world, which is very different to a large wholesale distributor.

In those days, parts distribution involved writing down telephoned orders from dealers, part numbering the orders from books, picking the parts and then handing over the paperwork for hand-written invoices to be produced. Since then, computerization and mechanization have taken over most of these tasks.

On 10th September 1984, I was appointed as Yamaha Parts & Warehouse Manager. Nowadays, I am still Parts Manager, purchasing stock for seven franchises, and I also manage the Contact Centre. This is the busy 'hub' of Fowlers' parts, clothing and accessories business, where we keep in touch with both wholesale and retail customers throughout the UK via the phone, email and fax, as well as
our online system.

After 37 years, I commute daily by motorcycle, which makes a breeze of the local traffic. I still enjoy coming to work every day, and always have, apart from the rare occasions when we've changed to a new computer software system, although such changes seem to plague many businesses.

My three children are now grown up and standing on their own two feet, with the eldest having also joined the company. I now have time to dream of doing exotic and irresponsible things, such as being crouched over a motorcycle with the throttle pinned right back and seeing ten miles of Bonneville salt flats stretching ahead
through the windscreen! Who knows? Maybe one day…..."

 

 

Dan - Supply Chain Administrator

Name: Dan

Job Title: Supply Chain Administrator

"Having joined the company in June 2001, initially as a summer job, I had no thoughts on what the future would bring. A decade and a half later, I am very much enjoying
the challenges of working for a medium-sized family-run business, having worked in various departments during my time here and learnt many aspects of the motorcycle trade. The training I've been given over the years has provided me with a wealth of knowledge, which is now being put to great use in my current role as Supply Chain Administrator. One of the most enjoyable aspects of working at Fowlers is that everyone is 'included' and made to feel special, which really helps staff relationships – this, as well as the many social events that take place throughout the year! Although I have worked in the motorcycle industry for many years, owning a motorcycle is one thing I have not yet achieved, although it is very much on my list of goals for 2016!"

 

 

Phil Howell - Triumph Brand Manager

Name: Phil

Job Title: Triumph Brand Manager

"My background was working for a small family and solus dealership specialising in Triumph motorcycles since 2001. The prospect of working at a well known and respected company like Fowlers seemed a bit daunting at first. In actual fact it's great, I am enjoying the challenge and still working for a family business, but with the feel and support of a larger family.

My position within the company since joining in November 2007 is Triumph Brand Manager and I feel I have embarked on a career rather than just filling a job. The company provides ongoing in house training and support not only for the Triumph brand, but also the other motorcycle brands that we sell.

The showroom is always busy and I enjoy seeing so many interesting people, it really makes the day go quickly. A great many of the customers we see have been dealing with Fowlers for a long time, but it's always good to see friendly faces from my previous dealership and to meet new customers who have come to Fowlers for the first time."
