Harley-Davidson and The Ludacris Foundation support children
Craig Jones, Buell Motorcycles professional extreme rider with two solo stoppie Guinness World Records, has been busy rewriting the record books and rules of extreme riding once again. This time, however, Jones has set the Guinness World Record for the longest two-man stoppie. Riding an astonishing 305 meters (1,000 feet) on the Buell Firebolt XB12R’s front wheel, Jones and former European champion and co-rider Wing Chui set the new milestone at the UK’s Donington Park race circuit. Chui was mounted on an extension to the front wheel spindle and held on tightly at a starting speed of 100 mph with the Donington track just a few inches beneath him.
Harley-Davidson partnered with hip hop artist Ludacris and The Ludacris Foundation to support his annual holiday party for 100 children on December 16, 2006, in Atlanta. The party was part of the Luda Cares initiative, which supports children and families in need during the holiday season by providing food, toys and clothes. Harley-Davidson donated school bags to each child in attendance.
The Ludacris Foundation and Harley-Davidson also hosted a tailgate party at the Georgia Dome during the Atlanta Falcons versus Dallas Cowboys football game on December 16, 2006. During the party, Harley-Davidson had motorcycles on display and provided guests with giveaways. Ludacris performed his hit song "Money Maker" during the half time show.
Harley-Davidson is also donating a 2007 FLSTF Fat Boy motorcycle to The Ludacris Foundation which will be auctioned off on eBay. The motorcycle will first tour around the country gaining celebrity autographs along the way. After its first stop at the Atlanta Falcons tailgate party, the motorcycle was shipped to Las Vegas for the 2007 NBA All-Star Game in February.
