Across the pond in Oxford, UK, a group of normally rough and tough bikers showed their soft side once again this year. They took chocolate and all kinds of goodies to the local hospital’s children’s cancer ward to pass it out to all of the kids. The Harley Owner’s Group rode in together on their yearly ride, which they’ve been doing for the past 8 years, to try and bring a smile to all of the children’s faces. They also passed out a huge amount of toys like coloring books, teddy bears, crayons, and everything else that kids are known to love. It is always a tough time of year for the kids, and that is why the Harley Owner’s Group dedicates so much time to gathering as many toys as possible to pass out each year. So keep this in mind the next time you see a big group of mean-looking bikers going down the road. Don’t always assume they are all big and bad!
If you haven’t, then you definitely need to check out the picture featured in this post. There was an exhibit in Milwaukee recently that featured a Harley Davidson motorcycle that was created with nothing but leather. It was crafted in Japan, along with several other unique designs that date all the way back to the era of the Vietnam War. Some other Harley Davidson designs that were featured at the exhibit were things like rarely seen prototype bikes, and even rocket powered drone missiles. The exhibit was called “Collection X: Weird, Wild Wonders of the Harley-Davidson Museum.” You wouldn’t believe some of the wild and crazy stuff that has been designed over the years, especially things you wouldn’t believe that could have came from Harley Davidson. That doesn’t mean the stuff isn’t cool, though, because it truly shows the imagination of the designers who work at Harley. That must be why they are known for some of the best motorcycles around!
Recently at the Long Beach International Motorcycle Show on December 9th, Harley Davidson revealed the much-anticipated 2012 Victory Hard-Ball motorcycle. To everyone’s surprise, the color scheme was made of almost all black, except for the red hue you could see that came from the pinstripes on the tank and fenders. So, the major features that the 2012 Hard-Ball is basically just a High-Ball with bags in a different color. This doesn’t mean that everyone didn’t like it, though. The whole crowd was captivated by the new, sleek design and they can’t wait for it to become available on the market next year.
If you’re in need of an idea for a great place to ride your Harley Davidson to this holiday season, then maybe you should try Phoenix, Arizona. The weather there is absolutely perfect to ride in because the skies stay clear and allows the sunshine to keep everything warm all year long. The temperature average for the year is 72 degrees, but in the summer it reaches over 100. It’s dry heat though and the humidity stays low, which makes the heat not as bad to tolerate. The sunsets are simply amazing to see, and it is definitely not something you want to miss. There’s nothing better than riding your bike into the sunset, especially when you’re on a Harley.
