A Harley-Davidson History Lesson

When it comes to the history of Harley-Davidson motorcycles, the brand began humbly more than 115 years ago, and I bet they had no idea they created such a cultural icon. 

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.
