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!




You may have heard people say that there’s nothing like being on a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle. Now, you can find out for yourself – even if you have no previous experience with motorcycles

The Harley-Davidson® JUMPSTART™ Rider Experience combines a Harley-Davidson motorcycle and a specially-designed, stationary support stand.

  • No knowledge or previous motorcycle experience necessary.
  • Motorcycle will not tip over.

You’ll mount the bike, set your boots on the foot pegs and fire up the engine under the watchful eye of trained personnel. Give the throttle a twist and hear that unforgettable Harley sound. Sitting comfortably on the bike, you’ll continue to shift through the gears – all safely and securely attached to the JUMPSTART™ platform.

Visit the H-D Museum today and try it out.
