Experience Gallery

TRY A BIKE

EXPERIENCE GALLERY

For some of you, this is the moment you've been waiting for. That's right, go ahead and swing your leg over one of the many motorcycles that inhabit the Experience gallery.

Chosen for their diverse scale, the bikes in this gallery are here for you to sit on, touch and admire. And while sitting in the saddle of one of these legendary rides, enjoy a video that allows you to experience the great roads of America and the camaraderie of riding that is at the heart of the Harley-Davidson experience.

While you’re here, take a seat on one of the new Harley-Davidson motorcycles and take a photo!

And then, sitting comfortably on the motorcycle, you’ll give the throttle a twist and continue to shift through the gears – all while safely and securely attached to the Jumpstart™ platform.
