Laidlaw’s Harley-Davidson Takes

Battle of the Kings Glory 

MILWAUKEE (November 5, 2019) — Following an intense global competition, including national and international heats, Laidlaw’s Harley-Davidson has today been crowned Global Custom Kings and overall winners of the 2019 Battle of the Kings. 

The day started out cool and sunny on the morning of August 31st. One by one the bikes rolled in with a thunder and anticipation of a ride to help those who have left us. The bikes lined up in staggered formation until all you could see was chrome, rubber and patriotism. A total of 153 bikes were in attendance, some single riders, some double, ready to hit the pavement and get some “wind therapy”.

The Iron Warriors Motorcycle Club (IWMC) Beartooth chapter in Billings Montana held its 14th annual poker run on Saturday, August 24th with a turnout of about 60 motorcycles and a few classic cars. The poker run is in honor of fallen officer Kevin Unruh, a 25-year veteran of the Billings Police Department. Kevin served our community with great distinction but sadly lost his courageous battle with cancer in 2015, Kevin will forever be missed by our members and our community.

The British Biker Cooperative (BBC) www.britishbiker.net/ is headquartered in the ancestral home of Harley-Davidson, but it is Limey bikes they love above all others.

For 39 years, the BBC faithful have been having an annual Rally and Bike Show, but the past twenty in a row have been held at Blue River, Wisconsin’s spectacular Eagle Cave Resort www.eaglecave.net.

It’s no wonder—the Eagle Cave Resort is high on a ridge over the Lower Wisconsin River valley, smack-dab in the midst of some of the most beautiful, technical, well-paved back roads for cruising in the world. Small towns, friendly folks, and a well-run event combine to make the BBC Rally and Ride-in Show one event that many people look forward to every July. While the BBC requires that a person own a British-brand bike, the Rally and Bike Show welcome riders of any brand; even folks who don’t ride at all!

Dalton Gauthier DELIVERS HARLEY-DAVIDSON XG750R’S First Race Win at SACRAMENTO MILE

First Production Twins Win for the Harley-Davidson XG750R

It may seem unusual for a Motorcycle Riding Club and Law Enforcement to join forces for the community good. But that is exactly what brought hundreds of people out to the 5th Annual Jack Aces RC & Branham Accessories Bike & Car Show in Cullman, Alabama. Saturday, August 10th was an extremely hot day at the Festhalle Farmers Market but that didn’t slow the crowds from showing up to view some spectacular custom bikes and antique cars and trucks. The cause for the day was Cullman Police Department Shop with A Cop. This Charity gives Christmas gifts to children who wouldn’t be able to have Christmas. On the day of the event (Shop with a Cop), officers and volunteers ride with kids to shop for Christmas gifts on their lists. The kids are then provided a delicious lunch. The entire experience builds the positive bond between Law Enforcement and the children.

We're on the road again, for a weekend trip, with great friends and family!  This time we took a trip on the bikes to Chattanooga, Tennessee where we visited the Tennessee Aquarium on Friday, July 5th.  There was so much to see there, including multiple types of fish (including piranha!), sharks, turtles, alligators, penguins and many more exciting things, but my favorites were the lemurs, the butterflies and the jellyfish.  We spent a lot of the afternoon there and afterwards, we had dinner at the Lakeshore Marina Grill, and the food was excellent! We ate on the water and watched the sun set.  You can't get much better than that!

MILWAUKEE (June 13, 2019) – After fierce online competition, the people have spoken, casting 42,000 votes for the coolest custom motorcycles in the United States. Twenty-one U.S. custom bike builds reign as the “People’s Choice” award winners in Harley-Davidson’s Battle of the Kings competition.
