I learned these things and more at Milwaukee’s Harley-Davidson Museum. Obviously, if you’re interested in the motorcycle industry and the motorcycle culture of America, Harley-Davidson plays a pretty prominent role. But when you’re the 800-pound gorilla of the industry, you get a lot of guff. You can count us as one of the Motor Company’s former detractors; back in the 90’s, we wagged our fingers at H-D for price gouging and for having an arrogant attitude. But despite those missteps, Harley has blossomed into an ambassador of the motorcycling industry, introducing initiatives and projects that paint all motorcyclists in a positive light, and pave the way for new adherents. One of the brightest lights is the H-D Museum, which opened to some fanfare four years ago. I’d never been before, and frankly, I wasn’t anticipating all that much. Color me jaded.
