Harley-Davidson Supporting Those Facing Breast CancerThe new and expanded Pink Label Collection from the Harley-Davidson MotorClothes line offers more than 60 iconic items for riders intent to wear their heart on their sleeves.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of each Pink Label item is donated to organizations that support people affected by breast cancer, including the National Breast Cancer Foundation’s “Beyond the Shock” program and the Young Survival Coalition. The continued growth of Pink Label Collection sales will result in more than $500,000 donated in 2012.Here are just a few items from the 2012-2013 Pink Label Collection:The versatile new Pink Label 3-in-1 Leather Jacket (P/N 98031-12VW, starting at $450) offers women a lightweight cowhide leather jacket with a removable zip-out fleece hoodie featuring extended cuffs with thumb holes, and that can be worn separately.

This week, in the first segment Editor Don Williams talks to us about the new Kawasaki Versys 650 LT. It’s the middleweight ADV style machine that uses the same 650 parallel twin motor as the Ninja 650, so it’s an excellent performer in a user-friendly, good looking package.
In the second segment, I chat with one of my dearest industry friends—now retired Honda PR executive, Jon Seidel. Jon’s fascinating career spans some 30 years with Big Red, and gave him some great experiences with some incredible machines. I was fortunate enough to be invited on many of the press launches that he organized. His new project is documenting and saving many of the old archives from years gone by—and incidentally, if you have anything that may be of value to the project, please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll pass it all on to Jon.
So on that note, from all of us here at Ultimate Motorcycling, we hope you enjoy this episode!
