Harley-Davidson 115th Anniversary Photo Gallery
Mayhem in Milwaukee
Remember that bully who used to kick sand in your face? He was there to remind you of your traumatic past at the Bradford Beach Brawl. The Race of Gentlemen (TROG) brought bullies on vintage and modern bikes to the shores of Lake Michigan for the first time in 100 years. Nothing pays tribute to the roots of motorcycle racing like high-siding a prewar bike into the sand.
We didn’t see many queens at the Run What Ya Brung drag race, but it was Harley-Davidson’s anniversary, and they were king! Later they took us down to Paradise City, that place, by the thing, where the lights are green and the bikes are pretty.

All sorts of bikes were able to drag race down the strip in the “run what ya brung” drags.

Flat Out Friday brought super hooligans, minibikes, and more to race indoors in Milwaukee.

Harley-Davidson’s 115th Hill Climb.
Heading to TROG is like stepping out of a time machine, looking at exclusively vintage bikes and outfits.
Hooligan racers playing leapfrog.
Many riders chose to go up on the berm, rather than try to muscle the turn through the flat.

Motorcycles didn’t get to have all the fun at The Race of Gentlemen.
Period-correct apparel is a must at TROG.
