Celebrating 110 Years with Harley Davidson


Jim and I are in the midst of the biggest celebration that Harley Davidson has had in years…We are so thrilled to be part of the 110th anniversary in Milwaukee Wisconsin. It really is incredible and we have so much to share, but because we are still relishing in the festivities, the stories will have to wait until next week.

In the meantime, I just want to say that the people here are incredible. We have met folks from all over the world, and we all have one thing in common, our love of Harley Davidson.


When we arrived, we couldn’t believe all of the excitement and just how many people drove thousands of miles, and even flew from overseas to see the culmination of a year’s worth of celebrations.

If you have been reading our blog, you know how much Jim and I love to eat…ok Jim, as you know, is a meat and potatoes kind of guy, but I’m more refined. I like to try anything new and I have certainly done that this weekend, but I’ll tell you more about that in next week’s blog.


The parade was awesome. Jim and I felt like the rock stars that we saw perform. We loved carrying our Bourbeuse Valley Chapter Flag. We were so proud to represent the rest of our club that couldn’t be with us celebrating 110 years with Harley Davidson. Crowds were lining the streets and it’s a really good thing that I practiced my parade wave because my hand was tired by the end of the parade route. During the parade kids, tweens, teens, adults, and seniors were holding their hands out so that we could slap them as we drove by. Honestly, it’s a good thing that Jim was driving because I don’t think I could have slapped and driven at the same time.


It’s the last day of the celebration, but there is still much to see and do, so until next time, I’ll catch you on the other side of, “Travels with Harley,” Oh, and happy Labor Day everyone!!
