This highland terrier and his owner, Henry, cruise on their Harley Davidson as much as possible. Henry says as soon as he pulls out the harness that Mr. Pettibone immediately begins jumping up and down and can’t wait to slip into it. It may look a little odd to most people when they are riding down the road together because Henry is big with tattoos, while Mr. Pettibone is a small, white highland terrier that you wouldn’t typically think of a guy like Henry having as a pet. Although, Henry says he takes extra precaution when riding with Mr. Pettibone because he says if an accident happened and anything happened to him, he would be devastated. It really shouldn’t be that surprising that man’s best friend likes riding Harley Davidson motorcycles because if dogs are truly man’s best friend, then they should love everything that man does, right?

We bet you would have never imagined a Harley Davidson motorcycle could get dirty, but think again. Roland Sand’s Designs decided to take a 2011 Softail and modify it a little bit. It is now able to go off-road and ride with the best of them. There wasn’t a whole lot of changes that had to be made actually, but they wanted to see how far they could take a Harley Davidson. Once it was completed they took it out for a little test drive, and it performed just like Harley Davidson motorcycles are known for. Roland definitely wanted to keep the stockline gas tank because that’s what Softails stand out, and he also kept the triple trees and frontend. Everything after that was modified atleast a little to handle the rough dirt roads. He definitely wasn’t disappointed, though. The Harley held its own, just like he always knew it would!
If you’ve been out of the Harley loop so far this year and haven’t heard, they have two brand new bikes being put into production. They are the Harley XL1200V Seventy Two and The Fat Boy Slim. The Seventy Two has tires that are white-walled and big handle bars. It comes from Harley’s Sportser line of bikes and this means that they aren’t as costly as a lot of the other bikes Harley Davidson offers. The great thing about the handle bars is that they are actually pretty comfortable and and great for those long bike rides that everyone loves. The paint job also has pinstriping on it that is gorgeous. Not only that, but the engine is a classic Harley and you can tell this by the sound and look, but don’t think that means it isn’t modern. It averages about 50mpg and runs as clean as ever. These two bikes are definitely ones you should check out if you’re in the market for a new Harley Davidson motorcycle.

The estate of famed actor Marlon Brando has filed a lawsuit against Harley-Davidson Motor Company for allegedly selling a line of boots called “The Brando.” Brando Enterprises says in a lawsuit filed in California that the “Brando” boots misappropriate the late actor’s likeness. It wants an injunction to stop the motorcycle giant from continuing to sell and marketing the footwear. We’ve heard of all sorts of claims by celebrities over their publicity rights: image, name, voice, etc. Last year, the estate of Humphrey Bogart went to war over a couch called the “Bogart” that was said to confuse the public. So it’s probably not a shocker that boots have now made the list of alleged infringements. According to the lawsuit, the boots look similar to a pair that Brando wore in the 1953 classic, “The Wild One.” In announcing the lawsuit, Jeffrey Abrams, the lawyer for the estate, pointed out that Harley-Davidson has been aggressive in its own right on the trademark front. “It is interesting that Harley-Davidson — a company that is vigorously protective of its own brand — would seek to exploit an iconic property without benefit of a licensing agreement,” said Abrams. “The flagrant disregard for the law by Harley-Davidson cannot be tolerated. It is our mission to protect the Marlon Brando name and we will pursue any company or individual who infringes on these rights meant to benefit the Brando family.”
