2015 Daytona Bike Week Harley-Davidson Events

2015 Daytona Bike Week Harley-Davidson EventsThe 74th annual Daytona Bike Week is currently underway, and Harley-Davidson has many events planned until the event concludes Saturday, March 14.

Besides offering the entire 2015 motorcycle lineup, demo rides are available for the new models, including the Street, Ultra Limited Low, Road Glide and the Freewheeler trike, along with 16 customized models.

Harley also has a treat of Street Glide fans; a 2015 CVO Street Glide donning new Carbon Crystal with Phantom Flames will be unveiled.

“Every year we seem to forget just how long winter can be for us in Milwaukee and throughout the U.S,” said Kris Schoonover, Manager, U.S. H.O.G and Events. “Daytona Bike Week marks the start of the riding season, and we can’t wait to join everyone to celebrate hitting the road.”

Following are what’s new for 2015 Daytona Bike Harley-Davidson Events (courtesy of Harley):

The Project LiveWire JUMPSTART and display will be open daily during show hours.

FX’s Sons of Anarchy motorcycle on display – A motorcycle from FX’s Sons of Anarchy will be setup for photo opportunities.

Harley-Davidson Museum previews upcoming Willie G. Davidson summer exhibit – Willie G’s 1983 FXDG Disc Glide Prototype is being displayed in the Harley-Davidson Museum area at the Speedway.

Davidson: Artist, Designer, Leader, Legend opening June 13 at the Harley-Davidson Museum in Milwaukee. Visit h-dmuseum.com for more information.
