H-D Plans Police Bike Celebration

Harley-Davidson is planning a number of activities to mark 100 years of police bike product during its upcoming 105th Anniversary weekend. One special event is the first-ever Harley-Davidson sponsored riding skills competition.

The competition will comprise individual training and skills timed competition cone patterns, based on the Northwestern University Center for Public Safety and Harley-Davidson's Police Motorcycle Operator Course. The Riding Skills Training Competition will be limited to the first 200 registered persons in each event.

The Grand Prize, a new 2008 Harley-Davidson 100th Anniversary Police Road King (FLHP) equipped with emergency equipment, will be awarded to the department of the winning competitor in his or her name. A second Grand Prize, a 2008 Harley-Davidson Peace Officer Special Edition FLHTCU Electra Glide Ultra Classic, will be awarded to one participant registered in the competition and/or at least two of the classroom forums. Both the 2008 FLHP Police motorcycle and 2008 Peace Officer Special Edition FLHTCU will be the final Police motorcycles built for the 2008 model year.
