Grandmaster Flash takes time out from spinning the turntables at ‘Brothers of the Bike,’ a special celebration co-presented by Harley-Davidson and RIDES Magazine, to pose for photos with fellow DJ’s Darryl DMC McDaniels, right, and DJ Clue in New York City.
Harley-Davidson motorcycles have long been known for the statements they make about their owners’ unique personal style. At Daytona Bike Week 2011, Harley-Davidson motorcycle owners are invited to enter their customized bikes in the all-new H-D1 Custom Bike Showcase presented by Best Western.
Riders can enter their motorcycles any time during Daytona Bike Week (March 5 to March 12) from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Harley-Davidson Beach Street location at Riverfront Park.
Winners will be selected daily by a random drawing for a total of eight winners, who each receive two nights lodging at a Best Western Hotel and a $200 H-D gift card. Select bikes from the Showcase will be posted online at www.harley-davidson.com/daytona.
The Bike Showcase is named for H-D1 to celebrate the most comprehensive and personal customization process in the motorcycle industry that provides customers with a variety of tools to design and style their motorcycle. Elements of H-D1 include Parts and Accessory catalogues, the Bike Builder tool on harley-davidson.com, Fit Shop, dealer consultation, and the new H-D1 factory customization for the 2011 Sportster 1200 Custom.
A full schedule of Harley-Davidson Daytona Bike Week activities is available at www.harley-davidson.com/daytona.
Harley-Davidson Celebrates African American Riders
Throughout history, African Americans have had a defining impact on the culture of motorcycling from William B. Johnson, the first African American Haley-Davidson dealer, to Bessie Stringfield, the first African American female to ride solo cross-country on a Harley-Davidson motorcycle.
This year, Harley-Davidson celebrated the contributions of African Americans to the culture of motorcycling during Black History Month by hosting “Brothers of the Bike,” a one-time exhibit at The 40/40 Club in New York City, featuring archival photos, video, customized motorcycles and the city’s most prominent African American riders, media and influencers.
