Wild Ones Weekend at Harley-Davidson Museum July 9-10

Enjoy a vintage style motorcycle rally at the Harley-Davidson Museum this summer during the Wild Ones Weekend when the Knucklehead Motorcycle Club hosts its annual reunion and antique bike show July 9-10, 2011.

Participate in vintage motorcycle field games, including the slow races, the plank ride, bean bag toss, and other classic games performed on vintage motorcycles. You also won’t want to miss the American Motor Drome Company’s gravity-defying performances in the amazing Wall of Death on antique Harley motorcycles throughout the weekend.

Harley-Davidson Media Website Redesigned for High Performance

The Harley media website, which has been in place for more than a decade, has been redesigned to better assist journalists and media with Motor Company coverage. The new design has improved functionality, reorganized content and refreshed look with the addition of b-roll videos and RSS feeds.
