No doubt the significance of this!!




During all month of February, the Harley-Davidson Museum celebrates the evolution of motorcycle culture through the eyes of African American riders.

The exhibit is featuring the stories of some of these highly influential trail blazers, images of Harley-Davidson legends like William B. Johnson, the first African American Harley-Davidson dealer; Bessie Stringfield, the first known African American woman to ride solo cross-country on a Harley motorcycle in the 1930s and 1940s; and Ben Hardy, the custom builder who helped create one of the most famous motorcycles in the world, Captain America, for the movie Easy Rider.
Harley-Davidson supports and attends a variety of African American events to connect with current riders, such as Atlantic Beach Bike Week, Daytona Black Bike Week and the National Bikers RoundUp, where thousands of African American riders gather in the spirit of unity and in true biker form.

Great pic. One of the things I really like about Bike Night in Royal Oak is that you actually see black guys out there, its great to see bikers all hanging out regardless of race, creed, color. etc. Fun times.

Sugar Bear is old school and super cool (not that I've met him). He makes some badass shit and has kept true to his style from way back...
