110 Years of Harley Motorcycles: Events

2012 Harley Events

This year, Harley-Davidson reaches another milestone as it celebrates its 110th birthday. And in typical H-D style, the iconic American V-Twin creator has many global celebrations planned.

Part of these events that celebrate a 110 years of "great motorcycles and epic riding experiences" will include a rally in Rome, Italy, June 13-16, and a huge Labor Day weekend party in Milwaukee Aug. 29-Sept. 1.

The Harley Owners Group (H.O.G.) will also join The Motor Company’s Mikwaukee Labor Day Weekend event; H.O.G., the official riding club of Harley-Davidson that has around one million members worldwide, celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2012.

Mark-Hans Richer (Harley-Davidson Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer) says: "Harley-Davidson is synonymous with adventure, passion and the experience of the open road. For this 110th celebration, our customers all around the world – with our support – are going to be taking everything to the next level and making their own history."

Information on housing options in Milwaukee and Rome is available at Further details about the global 110th Anniversary will be announced in the coming months.
