Harley Executives Open their Ride to Sturgis

I am so going to at least start this trip with these guys, Willie G and Bill Davidson!

"Ride to Sturgis with the Harley-Davidson Motor Company"

It’s the Mecca of motorcycling, and now you can ride to Sturgis with Harley-Davidson! Meet us at the home of Harley-Davidson in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, or join us along the way, for an unforgettable ride to the rally with fellow H-D enthusiasts, employees, and executives including CEO Keith Wandell, President and COO Matt Levatich, SVP and Chief Marketing Officer Mark-Hans Richer, SVP and Chief Styling Officer Willie G. Davidson and Vice President of the H-D Museum Bill Davidson.

The festivities will kick off at Bike Night at the Harley-Davidson Museum (www. Harley-Davidson.com) on Thursday, August 5. The ride begins on Friday morning and will wind through the heart of the Midwest and Black Hills, stopping at eight Harley-Davidson dealerships and rolling into Sturgis on Tuesday, August 10. Harley-Davidson riders and customers are welcome to join the ride and relax with the groups at various stops and dealer events.

The schedule of events for the Harley-Davidson Ride to Sturgis is as follows (subject to change):
• Thursday, August 5: 5:45 p.m. - Bike Night at the Harley-Davidson Museum in Milwaukee

In addition to the Ride to Sturgis, Harley-Davidson will be hosting free events at two all-new locations in the heart of Sturgis this year. Visit 3rd and Lazelle streets from Friday, Aug. 6 through Saturday, Aug. 14 for the Harley-Davidson Road Tour featuring the newly released 2011 Harley-Davidson motorcycles, other Harley-Davidson products and H.O.G. members-only pin stop.

I could care less about Wandell, the Davidson family is where it's all at with the MOCO, they are in charge of the important stuff, the design of the bikes.

I saw both Bill and his Dad at the Evel Kneivel exhibit opening at the Museum, a couple of weeks ago,and like to spend time around Willie as often as I can. He won't be around forever, and then we can really talk about the future of HD.

I wouldn't think of riding in a group like that. Hundreds of various riding styles from; 100 yard interval riders to those who like to show their bikes performance while riding fender to fender.
