We are pretty sure you have heard of the television show ‘Pawn Stars’ by now. If not, the show is about an eccentric family who owns a pawn shop in Las Vegas, Nevada and it was one of their birthdays recently. One of the main “characters” of the show is Chumlee and he just turned 30 years old. So, what better way to celebrate than have one of his friends take him to Sturgis for the 72nd get-together of the popular motorcycle rally on a Harley Davidson. Sturgis takes place in South Dakota every single year where thousands of motorcycle enthusiasts get together and celebrate one of their favorite hobbies. This is perfect for Chum because his buddies got him a motorcycle for the big day, and they thought the best way to break it in would be to head to Sturgis on the new bike. That’s one heck of a birthday present, don’t you think?
The Sheringham Carnival is a somewhat new festival in England that made its appearance for the first time last year. It was so popular that they went ahead and did it right and made it a true organized event this time. Harley Davidson riders came from all over England to join in on the parade, where they ride almost 2 miles in a convoy that stretches from Fakenham to the Sheringham town centre. Then everyone lines up along high street and shows off their Harley Davidson motorcycles. Judges take a look at each and every single bike in order to choose the best one out of them all. Members of the public vote on the winner of the people’s choice award, which is the most popular because it means your bike if the favorite of all the townspeople. You may have thought Harley Davidson bikes only showed up at festivals in the United States, but think again. Harley Davidson has fans from all over the globe.

You can now help out with the design of the next Harley Davidson motorcycle. Fans of Harley Davidson and Harley Davidson boots are able to give their input on the design of their next motorcycle through social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter. If you want to give them your 2 cents and vote on the design, all you have to do is visit the House of Harley and you can voice your opinion.

Hospital. So be sure to go vote because the bike is being created for a great cause!
Who said you couldn’t do stunts on a Harley Davidson motorcycle? This stunt rider put it all on the line and gave a Harley Fatboy and Nightster a spin around the block. Watch the video to see a Harley pushed to the edge. Harley Davidson bikes are normally not known to be used for stunt riding, but they teamed up with Firestorm films to produce this clip and to show that it is possible to do some stunt riding on them. As you can see, stunt rider Matt Mingay knows his way around a Harley and he is able to pull off some impressive stunts. It is definitely not recommended to try these stunts yourself, but if you are out of your mind then go for it. Just don’t say that you were not warned!
