|Every 5 years Harley brings in people, and |
economic impact, from all over the world
Why do I like, even love Harley? I appreciate bikes in general and am a fan of other brands and types - especially if they are old or look that way - including Triumph, Norton, BMW and others. But my heart is given to Harley-Davidson. Reason #1 is that they are born and bred in Milwaukee.
But why should non-bikers or non-Harley-bikers in Milwaukee support Harley? See Reason #1 above - they are a Milwaukee company.

in our fine city.
The celebrations held every five years is a great way to showcase Milwaukee as a city and all we have to offer, marketing the city could never even dream of if not for the Harley-Davidson calling it home. I think we can all not only tolerate, but celebrate the fact that we have such an opportunity presented to us. In fact, I think Harley should help amp up the Milwaukee Rally which is held the same time every year by local dealerships into an annual festival to compete with Daytona bike week, Sturgis, and Tomahawk.
