HARLEY-DAVIDSON CELEBRATES HERITAGE OF AFRICAN AMERICAN RIDERS

The Harley-Davidson experience hits Daytona Bike Week

On March 6 and 7, Harley-Davidson will show its support of "Bikers on the Boulevard" by hosting several activities during Daytona Bike Week. Scheduled activities include music, prize drawings and an open bike show.

Riders during Daytona Bike Week have been congregating along Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune Boulevard in the heart of Daytona's Midtown Black Heritage District during Bike Week for decades. Although it is uncertain exactly when this tradition began, some locals say the gathering goes back to the 1960s or even before. In honor of this rich tradition, Harley-Davidson will be celebrating at the historical intersection of Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune Boulevard (Second Avenue) and Pearl Street.

"We are looking forward to another successful year and the opportunity to continue to support Harley-Davidson riders and enthusiasts who have always supported us," stated Karina Jaramillo-Saa, manager of market outreach, Harley-Davidson Motor Company. "Bikers on the Boulevard celebrates the brotherhood and spirit of riding and we are excited to be a part of it."

Various 2009 Harley-Davidson models will be on display, including the Screamin' Eagle Fat Bob®, the Road King® Classic, the V-Rod® Muscle and the Screamin' Eagle Road Glide®. Harley-Davidson will ride in style as it cruises the boulevard in Daytona Beach.

Harley-Davidson has taken the best of Enthusiast® and HOG Tales® magazines and combined them into the all-new HOG® magazine, a world-class magazine for a world-class brand.

Since the first publication of Harley-Davidson's Enthusiast in 1916, more about motorcycling and the world in general has changed than has stayed the same. But throughout those 90-odd years, one thing has remained true: Harley-Davidson has produced magazines that give its riders a peek behind the curtain, informing them about its products, educating them about riding, and sharing their stories with legions of Harley® riders around the world. In 1983, Enthusiast was joined by Hog Tales magazine, which grew from a single-sheet newsletter into a bimonthly publication serving a diverse audience of more than one million Harley Owners Group® members internationally.

Building on a nearly century-old tradition, HOG magazine incorporates the best features of Enthusiast and Hog Tales in a bigger, bolder magazine that has the space to take enthusiasts deeper into the story than ever before, with more pages and better photography. The premier edition of HOG incorporates many familiar features from its predecessors: like the Enthusiasts section, where enthusiasts can share stories and photos from riding adventures; great riding features; product reviews; the Intake section and Exhaust column; inspiring custom motorcycles; riding tips; From the Archives; and more. There are also new features like an expanded calendar section that encourages enthusiasts to seek out destinations for their next ride, inspirational profiles of Harley riders, and even more in-depth riding reviews of Harley-Davidson motorcycles.
