Harley And The Women Of Sturgis

New this year during the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally this August 4-11, Harley-Davidson will feature new activities and events geared towards women at the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center. The Women’s Booth inside the Civic Center will feature a new display showing the history and connection between Harley-Davidson and women riders through the years. Aug. 9, is the inaugural H-D Sturgis Women’s Day featuring an entire day of events for women riders and non-riders such as a demonstration on how to lift a dropped bike and how to customize a motorcycle to fit a rider’s ergonomic needs. From 8-9 a.m., women-only demo rides will be available with complimentary coffee and morning snacks. Special seminars will be held indoors at the women’s booth that day, including a special functional MotorClothes preview with Karen Davidson, great granddaughter of founder William A. Davidson, at noon. Renowned female moto-journalist Genevieve Schmitt is also slated to be at the booth at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.

    S&S Cycle is the world’s leading manufacturer of high performance American V-Twin engines and performance parts used by many of the top custom bike manufacturers and builders in attendance every year at the annual Los Angles Calendar Motorcycle Show Weekend. It is America’s premier custom, cruiser and high performance street motorcycle show, taking place this year on July 14-15th at the Queen Mary Event Park in Long Beach, CA.

    One of the Calendar Motorcycle Show’s newest partners is S&S Cycle which is taking over sponsorship of the Calendar Motorcycle Show’s exclusive World Championship Horsepower Dyno Shoot Out in a perfect partnership to showcase the S&S Cycle product line’s proven performance image. Along with sponsoring the S&S Cycle World Championship Horsepower Dyno Shoot Out, S&S Cycle president Brett Smith , Marketing Director Timm Fields and Event Manager James Simonelli will be in attendance with a company product display. They will also be conducting an S&S Cycle Performance Seminar each day as part of the Show’s popular Calendar Bike Builder Seminars ( other Builder Seminars are hosted by top builders Jesse Rooke, Russell Mitchell, Joe Takai and Roland Sands) to answer attendee’s engine, performance questions.

    Actual operation of the S&S Cycle World Championship Horsepower Dyno Shoot Out throughout the weekend will be handled by veteran exhaust system designer Kerry Bryant and his staff from Area P / No Limits. It is Kerry who has actually produced the World Record Dyno Shoot Outs at the Show the last eight years with previous sponsors, so the accuracy and continuity of established classes and records will continue unchanged. And as always there will be a full range of Record Classes for both American V-Twin and Metric Sportbikes in both the stock and modified streetbike categories, with engraved S&S Cycle World Record trophies awarded to the winners.
