RYDER – Harley-Davidson rides into Ryder on Saturday with the goal to create the first fully motorcycle licensed town in America.
Harley-Davidson officials are offering Ryder residents in southwest Ward County community – a town incorporated in 1906 – only three years after Harley-Davidson Motor Company was founded – the opportunity to become motorcycle riders.
Ryder’s residents will have the opportunity to learn the basics of motorcycle riding and experience it firsthand, and how easy and fun it is to get out on the open road on a Harley-Davidson, Harley-Davidson company officials said.
“We wanted to kick off riding season and show America how easy and fun it is to ride motorcycles,” said Anoop Prakash, director of U.S. Marketing and Market Development at Harley-Davidson’s headquarters in Milwaukee, explaining the outreach effort.
The Harley-Davidson outreach is being held in conjunction with Ryp To Ryder, a daylong all-family event presented by Magic City Harley-Davidson in Minot.
