If you haven’t taken a ride across America but you love to ride motorcycles, I highly recommend you plan your trip now. One of the best rides that riders experience is multiple week long trip across the beautiful country of the United States. With the asphalt under the tires and the drastic changes in scenery throughout the ride, there’s no experience greater– especially if you are on a Harley Davidson.
Harleys Are Made Well
Harleys make the ride fun, and they were made for long trips. As an iconic American-style bike, Harleys were made for America. For years this company has had manufacturing plants in America, making it a trademark for their brand. Although they may also have plants in other international companies, but this is all in good faith to expand their company on a global basis.
For high-speed trips, Harleys make it easier. Being made with such a heavy body, it’s much harder to get blown around or beat up on a Harley. Their performance in high-speed rides are fantastic for stability and maneuvering on the road.
Harleys Let You Meet People
Harley Davidson to the public is a very misunderstood brand for those who don’t ride one. Some have made the joke that Harley owners are like a cult. If you ride a Harley, you’re automatically in tune with other Harley riders. There are so many groups of motorcycle riders out there that all ride Harleys. There are hashtags on social media, and even public groups of Harley riders on social media. It’s pretty simple though– Harleys bring people together.
Harleys create a community. There are plenty of opportunities inside of the Harley community to go on scheduled rides, planned tours, and even friendships. Harleys bring an opportunity to meet other Harley riders. In such events, you get a fun ride while also making lasting friendships.
Harleys Have a Long Lifespan
Ultimately, you can make your Harley last as long as you want it to, or until you decide you want to ride in a new style. The way that Harley engines are designed, their pretty much always repeatable. Although Harleys can show their age, the motors have incredibly proven their long lasting life. In fact, David Zein, the former Wisconsin State Senator is the proud owner of a 1991 FXRT, which is the first Harley to reach 1 million miles on it. It was a pivotal day in Harley history when that odometer read “000000” after a torturous trip.
