Bike Parade Thundered In

The Milwaukee made Harley-Davidson motorcycle is celebrating their 110th anniversary, bikers from everywhere are converging in Milwaukee, Wisconsin for the Saturday anniversary festivities. Yesterday, here in Kenosha, Wisconsin, which is just fifty one miles from Milwaukee, bikers arrived to celebrate Harbor Thunder at our beautiful lakefront.

Hundreds of Harley owners arrived at Uke's Harley-Davidsons dealership in Kenosha, the starting point of the Harbor Thunder bike parade that ended at the Kenosha lakefront.

At 5:30 p.m., the first motorcycles pulled out of Uke's parking lot, to start the bike parade. Who were the leaders of this parade? None other than the Kenosha police motorcycle unit who ride Harley-
Davidson motorcycles.

Kenosha police motorcycle unit leads the parade toward the Lake Michigan's lakefront.

Bikers waved and honked their horns along the route to the lakefront.
Many of the bikers proudly displayed our nations flag.
This motorcycle was truly a family affair.
Mom, dad driving the bike, and two kids in the side car.

When the first bikes arrived at the lakefront around 6 p.m., there were still bikes leaving Uke's nine miles back. The unofficial count 782 Harley's, formed a long, moving line of rolling thunder.

It was an impressive site.


  1. Wow, I bet that did thunder. It could be rather frightening with all that noise.

  2. And VERY loud I assume! Headed to the post office here shortly to get your tee shirt sent! Many thanks, dear friend! :)
