A Harley-Davidson History Lesson

When it comes to Harley-Davidson motorcycles, we all know it's not just a brand, right? It's a way of life. Harley began humbly more than 115 years ago, and I bet those guys didn't know they had just created something that would become a way of life for millions of people around the world for years to come.

It's always good to recognize your roots and to learn where you came from, so to honor the brand which has been such a huge part of our lives for so long, I'd like to share their story. Let's take a look at the interesting history behind Harley motorcycles, and exactly how great engineering, dedication, and hard work led Harley-Davidson to become the legend that it is today.
