A family connection to Harleys

We have a special love of Harley Davidsons as Byron’s Dad use to restore old Harleys in his garage. He left Indianapolis after high school on a small Indian motorcycle to go to Wyoming with dreams of being a mountain man trapper.

I loved to visit them in Wyoming, and he would always take me for a long ride. At first I was a little apprehensive as they are very loud, and the exhaust pipe hot – but after my first ride I felt the adrenaline that I am sure all Harley riders must feel.
