1- Twenty Harley Davidson police motorcycles, outfitted with specialized police equipment including enhanced steering and braking capabilities and lights and sirens with mounted microphones and speakers were delivered to Lebanon for handover to the ISF (Lebanese National Police). 24 Harley Davidson motorcycles are already in the ISF fleet. Since 2007, the U.S. Government has committed over $104 million for training and equipment to the ISF to strengthen and build its professional capacity, according to a State Department statement. 2- Seems that Big Dog Motorcycle, like many companies, keeps a very low inventory to try to boost its cash flow. Consequently, many Big Dog Motorcycle Dealers having to do warranty work and many owners who need to replace BDM parts are very frustrated with the unavailability of these parts. Catch 22 situation.

3- Abandoning the Rapid City Convention Center, Harley-Davidson unveiled its 2 new locations in the heart of Sturgis, S.D., where the Motor Company will celebrate the 70th Annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally 6-14, 2010. The Harley-Davidson Road Tour with the newly released 2011 Harley-Davidson motorcycles, Genuine Motor Accessories, MotorClothes merchandise and H.O.G. members-only pin stop will run from Friday, Aug. 6 through Saturday, Aug. 14 at the intersection of Lazelle and 3rd streets in downtown Sturgis. All Harley-Davidson activities in Sturgis are free of charge. Harley-Davidson demo rides for 2011 motorcycles will be available in Sturgis at a location near Interstate 90 at Exit 30. 4- Nearly a year after Bruce Rossmeyer’s death on his way to Sturgis, his face is slowly starting to fade from advertising. Rossmeyer’s family is gradually replacing billboards with his smiling face with new boards, sans Rossmeyer image, although the name will stay. 5- MC-Travel, one of the biggest Motorcycle Tour Operator in Denmark and Authorized Harley-Davidson Tour Operator, will open in November 2010 a Harley Rental location in Havana, Cuba. Good news for all bikers visiting he island except US citizens who are still not authorized to travel to Cuba due to the US government embargo. The rental agony will offer all inclusive 16-day tours to places that tourists usually never see.

    You know, I often think, if you really wanted to bring Cuba down, let US citizens travel, and spend there freely. Money motivates people to change the way they live, and, their government.
