2010 Harley-Davidson Garage Party Kicked-Off

Harley-Davidson dealerships across the United States are currently hosting the Garage Party events, mostly dedicated to women riders. These free events are designed to be both fun and educational, covering topics such as a review of the basic motorcycle controls, how to customize a motorcycle's style and ergonomics, and how to gear up for a ride.

"Garage Party events have encouraged thousands of women to learn to ride over the past few years," said Leslie Prevish, women's outreach manager for Harley-Davidson Motor Company. "The events help educate and build confidence for new female riders, and March kicks off the beginning of riding season, so it's the perfect time to get women involved."

As part of National Garage Party Month, Harley-Davidson also conducts a sweepstakes that will run until March 31, 2010, when one woman and three of her friends will be rewarded with a spa retreat weekend in Los Angeles to learn to ride through the Rider's Edge New Rider Course.

The lucky women will also meet TV wellness expert Jillian Michaels, and get some tips on how to live a healthier life. Michaels, a Harley-Davidson rider recently partnered with the motorcycle manufacturer to encourage more women to ride. Women can enter the sweepstakes by attending a Garage Party event or online by visiting the following link.

Garage Party event attendees are organized into small groups, who will visit four informational seminars, including:
  • Motorcycle Orientation to learn the basic differences between Harley-Davidson motorcycle families.
  • MotorClothes Merchandise to discover the important attributes needed in motorcycle gear.
  • Customization to learn how to customize a motorcycle to reflect a rider's personal style and ergonomic needs, using Fit Shop that many dealers have.
  • Self-Service to find out how just about anyone can handle the weight of a motorcycle, including an interactive experience on picking up a motorcycle.
