Find Your Freedom // Zee's Harley Davidson Low Rider S

by Kelly Kawasaki

Why did you choose your Harley Davidson Low Rider S?
I chose my new bike, the
Harley Davidson Low Rider S, because I had been eyeing Dyna models over the years. I rode my Sportster for 4 years, but outgrew her and it was time for me to upgrade. I test rode the Harley Davidson Low Rider S and fell in love. The size was perfect for me, the power was amazing, as I could now keep up with my husband’s Harley Davidson V-Rod, and it’s just a really badass bike! A fun fact is that I inspired my husband to sell his Harley Davidson V-Rod for a twin Low Rider S with the 131 engine as well. His is barracuda silver and mine is black. That was definitely a win for me!

Learn From One Another // Tav's Ducati and Harley Davidson Motorcycles

Why did you choose your Harley Davidson Fat Bob, your Harley Davidson Night Rod Special, and your Ducati Diavel Carbon?

I carefully chose my
Ducati Diavel Carbon, Harley Davidson Fat Bob, and Harley Davidson Night Rod Special because of their looks and performance. Aggressive, curvaceous, and eye-catching features of the motorcycle lure me in first, and then the power and the handling. The performance of the bike should send chills up my spine. When I get off it and start walking away, I look at the powerful machine and that feeling remains, and I want to go for another ride.

Iron Born // Jason Chong's Harley Davidson Iron 883

by Kelly Kawasaki

Why did you choose your Harley Davidson Iron 883?
My current bike is an
Iron 883 which I converted to a 1250cc. Initially, a Harley never really appealed to me and I think it's because of how the media portrayed Harley riders. I thought they were for middle-aged men who were having a midlife crisis. Then I started riding with a buddy of mine and he had a Harley Davidson Iron 883. The sound was just incredible. The air-cooled engine with Vance & Hines pipes was just so iconic that it drew me to the bike immediately. It was also the first Harley that seemed to run counter to everything that I knew about Harleys and that also appealed to me. Let's be honest, we all chose a bike initially because we think it looks badass and to me, the Sportster just had that in spades.

Rubber Side Down // Angie Ray's Harley Davidson Sportster 883R

by Kelly Kawasaki

Why did you choose your Harley Davidson Sportster 883R?
As a little girl, I have always been fascinated by the sound of
Harley Davidson motorcycles. From an early age, I immediately fell in love with the sound of a passing Harley. But it’s also the appearance of these bikes that attract me. Large, beautifully polished, and fully customized to a rider's own taste, with or without various accessories.

360-Degree Views // Miguel Rivers'  Harley Davidson Iron 883

by Kelly Kawasaki

Why did you choose your Harley Davidson Iron 883?
In my early twenties, I had a preference for sportbikes, I had a
Honda CBR 600 and a Ducati 916. I saw myself riding very fast and dangerously, so I decided to sell them. Later in life, I had the opportunity to get into biking again and bought a Harley Davidson Iron 883. The look and cruiser style of that motorcycle is what made me finally decide to get back on two wheels and enjoy the experience.
