When you see a Harley-Davidson®, it's hard not to smile. The big V-twin engines are unmistakable, as are the chunky tires and the loud exhaust. But there's more to Harley-Davidson® than just the bike itself. It's a culture with its own language and customs, and its own lexicon of slang.
Harley-Davidson® was founded in 1903 by William S. Harley and his friend Arthur Davidson in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The two men had been working on their own motorcycles for two years when they decided to start a business together selling them. They called their bikes "Harley-Davidson" after their own last names.
Harley-Davidson® is the ultimate American motorcycle. It’s been around for almost 100 years and has a strong and loyal following that is unmatched by any other brand of motorcycle.
Harley® motorcycles are known for their iconic look, sound and feel. They have a reputation for being powerful, comfortable and reliable. They’re also built to last, which might explain why so many people love them.
Harley-Davidson® riders love their bikes because they represent freedom, independence and adventure. These are people who want to get away from it all on two wheels. The Harley® lifestyle appeals to those who don’t like following rules or being told what to do by others.
H-D® owners form a close bond with their bikes because they are designed specifically for them. They often customize their Harleys® to make them even more individualistic. This adds to the appeal of owning one of these machines.
As much as Harley-Davidson® owners have their own culture, Mike’s Famous built that culture into an amazing experience. Located in the scenic shoreline city of New London in Southeastern CT, the historic Coca-Cola® factory building is home to Mike's Famous®. This facility boasts a full 55,000 square feet of Harley-Davidson® inventory. The Coca-Cola® factory and bottling facility was originally built in 1938. Mike’s Famous set out to transform the Coca-Cola® iconic brand to the Harley-Davidson® iconic brand with the perfect blend of both!
When you search for Harley® dealers in Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Long Island, you will undoubtedly see Mike’s Famous® at the very top of the list.
