Harley-Davidson

(NYSE: HOG, formerly HDI),

often abbreviated H-D or Harley, is an American motorcycle manufacturer. Founded in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, during the first decade of the 20th century, it was one of two major American motorcycle manufacturers to survive the Great Depression. Harley-Davidson also survived a period of poor quality control and competition with Japanese manufacturers.

The company sells heavyweight (over 750 cc) motorcycles designed for cruising on the highway. Harley-Davidson motorcycles (popularly known as "Harleys") have a distinctive design and exhaust note. They are especially noted for the tradition of heavy customization that gave rise to the chopper-style of motorcycle. Except for the modern VRSC model family, current Harley-Davidson motorcycles reflect the styles of classic Harley designs. Harley-Davidson's attempts to establish itself in the light motorcycle market have met with limited success and have largely been abandoned since the 1978 sale of its Italian Aermacchi subsidiary.

Harley-Davidson sustains a loyal brand community which keeps active through clubs, events, and a museum. Licensing of the Harley-Davidson logo accounts for almost 5% of the company's net revenue.

Hi my friends,

New year is here and I hope you all had a great start into 2010!

We went to the beach, of course.... and there they were! Five of the most beautiful Harley Davidson motor cycles. They were cruising the island up and down enjoying the warming sunshine on their back. I could not resist not to take pictures and voila, here they are :)

My thanks are going to all my "old" loyal friends from 2009 and also from more back to 2006 who still come (almost every day) visiting and commenting my blog. I appreciate your words! And there have also been some new faces recently showing up. You are all very welcome to follow my daily blurbs and photos with your comments :)

See you tomorrow again?

I have decided also in 2010, I will continue my "Wordless Sunday" series with "pictures without words". These will be new pictures or pictures from my archives, from my travels or even pictures out from my fine art collection. For you, it should feel like opening a surprise box every Sunday, o.k.? :)

See you tomorrow!
Susanne



Until January/February I'll be still selling my CALENDARS 2010.
I have to offer CALENDARS from:

LAS VEGAS
Santa Fe
Key West

These were wonderful...they reminded me of the set that you did of the car show last year...I loved them so much that when we had a local car show,it inspired me to take some of our antique cars there too.
