Few could have predicted that the most traditional of motorcycle manufacturers, Harley-Davidson, would take a violent left turn and enter the adventure bike market. While many predicted disaster, many others quietly hoped that it would be at least as good as the standard-bearers of the class, BMW and KTM. When it finally arrived, the naysayers quickly went silent and Harley-Davidson has a huge success on its hands.

Milwaukee, WI – (November 3, 2022) – Harley-Davidson’s history with the U.S military dates back more than a century. The Motor Company’s “iron horses” were a part of General “Black Jack” Pershing’s 1916 efforts to chase Mexican revolutionary Pancho Villa around the Mexican desert on the heels of the Mexican Revolution.

A Rare Harley-Davidson MT500 Military Motorcycle

This is a Harley-Davidson MT500 and if you’ve never heard of it before, that may be because just 500 or so were made before production was ceased – making it one of the rarest Harley production bikes in history.

2021 Harley-Davidson Pan America 1250 Review

admin

“I thought you’d gone to pick up a Harley to review?” quipped my wife, eyeing the new Harley-Davidson Pan America 1250 quizzically. She’s got a point. The Harley-Davidson name almost always evokes images of big, burly, cruiser motorcycles with gleaming chrome, and that typical v-twin big bore engine. And that’s exactly the image almost everyone has, of a Harley, whether he or she’s into motorcycles or not. The Pan America 1250 is the newest adventure touring motorcycle in the market, and it’s a Harley-Davidson! There’s no gleaming chrome, nor is it a cruiser, so, in a way, it’s far from
