Harley Davidson now has its own event at the Winter X Games
Debut in 1995, the X Games is an annual extreme sports event hosted, produced, and broadcast by ESPN. A couple of years later, they started the winter edition of these games where the most celebrated winter action sports athletes from around the world compete in a myriad of sporting activities on the icy Buttermilk Mountains in Aspen, Colorado.
Events include Shovel Racing, Snow Mountain Bike Racing, Skiboarding, Ice climbing, Snow skating, and other such sports on the snow. The 2018 edition is right around the corner, and this time Harley Davidson has decided to be part of the action and is introducing a new event: The Snowhill Climb.
Meet the Harley Davidson Roadster Snow Drag.
The Harley Davidson Roadster is the most sport-oriented version of the Sportster series offering an alternative to more conventional cruiser variants. This newcomer to Harley’s Sportster range may not be everyone’s cup of tea. But it is a better fit for the current market.
Now though, this roadster fell into the hands of some custom cracks and had been prepped up to become the finalist in the annual ‘Battle of the Kings’ contest. And what did they come up with to get there? A (insert a slang here) snow bike with skis belts and a mad looking electric paint job.
This week, the European capital of fashion, Milan, was the shooting place of the 2009 Harley-Davidson & Playboy pics in the photo gallery. Actually, the two big names have teamed up for a contest addressed to all Italian motorcycle owners being at least 21 years of age. These will have to register at www. anightwith.it and so have the possibility both to win a ride with the Harley-Davidson VRSC and meet Italy’s playmates. June 29 is the big day for the lucky winner, who will also end up in the actual magazine, which isn’t necessarily an advantage.
We know how small the chances are that you actually read this last phrase due to the tempting photo gallery, but we’ll have to say that this is just a preview. Harley and Playboy are capable of much more and we want to see it happen.
The 13th Annual Southwest Police Motorcycle Training and Competition Event Held in Phoenix, Arizona showed once again how skilful the guys in uniforms are in maneuvering those big Harley-Davidson motorcycles. Even if spending the full working schedule on the seats of their bikes, the policeman participating sure did their homework before signing in for the competition. Just take a look at this perfect run.
All riders are very happy about their new bikes, especially if they had it custom made, but designing it yourself and ending up being the winner of your very own creation is indeed something else. Harley-Davidson has announced the winner of their “Build It and Win It” contest and made one lucky women extremely happy.

It means she won the precise motorcycle that she designed and shows how we all should give it a shot as soon as we hear about such contests.
