Events at MOTOR®

Every visit to MOTOR® is an event, but some visits are more eventful. Especially when you take advantage of our regular – but far from ordinary – events like Bike Nights, Brew Master Dinners, Mother’s Day Brunch, and more.

  • Breakfast with Santa

    December 4 & 11, 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
    MOTOR® Bar & Restaurant 

    Bring the kids down to the Harley-Davidson Museum® for a special MOTOR breakfast with Santa! In this annual tradition, parents and children have the opportunity to snap a photo with Santa on a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle and decorate a motorcycle-shaped sugar cookie. Plated children’s breakfast includes the perfect portion for little ones, five silver dollar-sized buttermilk pancakes, scrambled eggs and crispy hickory-smoked bacon. $14.95 per child (12 yrs and younger). Space for the event is limited and reservations are required. Call (414) 287-2778 to make a reservation.

  • Holiday Bike Night

    Thursday, December 15, 2016 
    5 – 9 p.m.
    MOTOR® Bar & Restaurant

    Come on down to Motor® Bar & Restaurant for a very merry Harley-Davidson holiday. To celebrate the season, attendees will receive a free Harley-Davidson ornament, while supplies last. In addition to the MOTOR food & drink specials you’ve come to love, The Ryan McGrath Band brings their blues-rock-country twang to the party for a foot-stomping good time. And everyone can enjoy $2 Miller Lite with your MOTOR Bike Night koozie, no matter if you’ve been naughty or nice. Our Bike Night raffle means a few lucky folks will be decking their halls with some fresh new Harley-Davidson merchandise.  

    Plus, The Shop at the Harley-Davidson Museum will stay open late to offer exclusive deals – like free gift wrapping – for all Bike Night attendees. If you still have a few folks to check off your list, tonight is your chance to shop till you drop at our Holiday Bike Night.

  • BBQ & Blues

    Restarting in February 2017
    All-You-Can-Eat BBQ Special: 
    5 p.m. - 9 p.m.,
    Blues Music: 5:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

    On Saturdays starting in February, MOTOR brings together two true American classics: Blues music and all-you-can-eat BBQ (AYCE). For just $19.95, have your fill of MOTOR’s famous hickory-smoked BBQ chicken, pulled pork, smoked brisket and grilled sausage links – all four is a great start – or add on AYCE Memphis-style dry-rubbed ribs for only $5 more.

    All BBQ platters include AYCE French fries, jicama coleslaw, BBQ baked beans and made-from-scratch cornbread. In addition to all the smoking BBQ, MOTOR will sizzle with the best in true American blues music from nationally known musicians – with no cover charge! Don’t delay in making a reservation for your next great Saturday night as MOTOR rolls out the orange carpet for this perfect pairing of good food and live music.
