    Who Needs A Side Car?

    An interest in motorcycling has always brought people together, sometimes in ways one would never imagine, as shown in this photo from 50 years ago. It shows just how far motorcycle clubs have come. In the 1950s, club members wore uniforms that included dress shirts, ties, polished boots, and captain-style hats.

  • Caption

    Packed To The Gills

    Originally a Friday tradition, fish fries have become a way of life in Wisconsin. William A. Davidson and William S. Harley were certainly looking forward to a feast back in 1923 after they scored big-time at a local fishing hole. One taste of our recipe and you’ll think it’s the best in town. And that’s no fish story.
