Interesting about Harleys.....
Harley-Davidson, Inc., H-D, or Harley, is an American motorcycle manufacturer founded in 1903 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It was one of two major American motorcycle manufacturers to survive the Great Depression, along with Indian. The company has survived numerous ownership arrangements, subsidiary arrangements, periods of poor economic health and product quality, and intense global competition to become one of the world's largest motorcycle manufacturers and an iconic brand widely known for its loyal following. There are owner clubs and events worldwide, as well as a company-sponsored, brand-focused museum.
Harley-Davidson is noted for a style of customization that gave rise to the chopper motorcycle style. The company traditionally marketed heavyweight, air-cooled cruiser motorcycles with engine displacements greater than 700 cc, but it has broadened its offerings to include more contemporary VRSC (2002) and middle-weight Street (2015) platforms.
For nearly 100 years, Harley-Davidson motorcycles have been referred to as "hogs." Although you may assume that this nickname has something to do with the size or sound of their motorcycles, the true origins of the nickname are rooted in racing. In the years leading up to World War I, Harley riders dominated the sport of motorcycle racing. The Harley-Davidson racing team acquired a pet piglet, which was quickly adopted as the team's mascot. A tradition soon began of riding a victory lap after each win with the pig, whose name was Johnny. It is because of "Johnny the Pig" that Harley-Davidson motorcycles are called "hogs."
