Dunlop - Offical Tire Sponsor of Harley's 110th AnniversaryHarley-Davidson 110th Anniversary News

Harley-Davidson is celebrating the passion, freedom and independence of its 110th Anniversary by riding around the world and home to Milwaukee with Dunlop as the official tire sponsor of the Company’s global anniversary events.

Dunlop will take a prime position at Harley-Davidson 110th Anniversary upcoming events in Rome, Sturgis and of course, the Milwaukee events over Labor Day weekend 2013. Harley riders will have the chance to speak with Dunlop staff during these events about tire selection and performance.

Both Harley-Davidson and Dunlop enjoy a deep and respected tradition in the global motorcycling community. Dunlop tires for Harley-Davidson motorcycles are made in the USA and have been mounted as original equipment on Harley-Davidson motorcycles since 1984.

Dunlop is recognized as one of the world leaders in motorcycle tire design, engineering and manufacturing excellence. Dunlop is also celebrating a major anniversary of its own in 2013 as it marks 125 years as a tire manufacturer.

John C. Farris Jr. (Director-Global Brand Alliances & Business Development) says: “Harley-Davidson riders are passionate about their motorcycles and appreciate the impact of riding on quality tires like Dunlop. Our 110th Anniversary is a unique opportunity to showcase the respected tradition that connects Harley-Davidson motorcycles and Dunlop tires, which includes Dunlop’s long time support for Harley-Davidson racing programs.”

Mike Buckley (Dunlop Vice President of Sales, Marketing, Research & Development) says: “Dunlop places great importance and value on the history it shares with Harley-Davidson, and this sponsorship opportunity offers a fantastic platform to demonstrate the strength of this relationship.

“This opportunity to celebrate our 125th anniversary concurrently with Harley-Davidson affords Dunlop the chance to reinforce the importance of tire care and maintenance with Harley-Davidson riders, while we also share information about how to select the proper tire and get the most out of Dunlop tires on Harley-Davidson motorcycles during these gatherings.”

Dunlop and Harley-Davidson are working together on several activities for the 110th Anniversary, including having Dunlop staff experts at those events in Rome, Sturgis and Milwaukee, social media motorcycle tire care tips, a tire rebate offer through June 15, and more.
