Harley-Davidson celebrates its 105th anniversary!


by Pascal Bastien ,

In 2008, the legendary bike builder celebrates its 105th anniversary. Thousands of riders will rumble through the streets of Milwaukee from August 28 to 31 to put an emphatic exclamation point on this milestone.

For most owners, a Harley is so much more than a means of transportation and a mere hobby. It's a lifestyle or, as some would say, a religion.

Passion for the brand continues to grow across Canada. Legions of Harley fans ride the country's roads, which is why Deeley Harley-Davidson, the exclusive dealer of Harley-Davidson and Buell products in Canada, is planning a big birthday party.

Happy birthday, Harley!
This summer, the festivities surrounding the 105th anniversary will include five 30-stop rides leading up to three single-day regional events in Toronto, Winnipeg and Montreal.

The program will feature spectacular shows, entertaining activities and the introduction of the complete 2009 Harley-Davidson lineup. It will be a celebration of freedom, passion and adventure for cruiser enthusiasts and music lovers alike.

Three major cities
On Saturday, August 23, Harley-Davidson will be at Jarry Park, in Montreal, with singer Marie-Chantal Toupin and legendary guitarist Steve Hill. The celebrations will resume at the Distillery in Toronto, on Sunday, with performances by David Wilcox and rock band Rides Again. It will also be the first official Coyote Ugly Night in Canada, with appearances by Liliana « Lil » Lovell, host of the TV show, along with the real girls of Coyote Ugly. Hot!

Finally, April Wine and a three-brother local band called Inward Eye will rock the famous Cowboy's Roadhouse in Winnipeg the very same day. Dinner will be free until 7:30 p.m., courtesy of the Cowboy's. The event will culminate with a show by the Buck Wyld dance team.

The 105th anniversary parties will also include demos of 2009 models, vintage Harley displays, special HOG prizes and giveaways, hourly contests, special guest appearances, an outdoor casino and much more. For additional information or to buy tickets, go to
