If you ride a Harley-Davidson motorcycle, you know pink is more than just a color. Integrating the color pink is an ongoing pledge to those affected by breast cancer—letting them know that nobody rides alone, on the road or through life.
It all began 4 years ago. With the children grown and out of the house, my husband, Neil, said, “Its time to start riding again.” I said, “Have fun”! I had never ridden on a motorcycle, except for once when I was 18, and that ride was enough for me. I also once rode on the back of Neil’s motorcycle and didn’t think it was that much fun. But, for my 50th birthday, Neil somehow managed to have me take motorcycle lessons.
October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a time to shine the spotlight on the efforts being made to eradicate this disease. Harley-Davidson MotorClothes has contributed to the cause by donating a portion of its Pink Label Collection sales to organizations that support breast cancer patients and their families. What an ideal time to review some items in Harley-Davidsons Pink Label Collection.
As we ride into autumn with fallen leaves swirling around us—and occasional bursts of cool or warm temperatures (depending on what part of the country you live in)—a jacket that can handle change is essential. With a variety of features, these new styles from Alpinestars, Joe Rocket and Harley-Davidson can transition from keeping us warm to cooling us down.
A new riding season is a good reason for women riders to clean out their closets and invest in some new gear. Now that the cold weathers on its way out, we’ve got some great new jacket and pant options from several trusted (and new!) names in motorcycle apparel.
Harley-Davidson is adding new items to its popular Pink Label Collection, one of the most successful collections in the company’s MotorClothes line. A portion of proceeds from the sale of every Pink Label item helps fund the YourShoes 24/7 Support Center, an organization that supports patients and families affected by breast cancer.
I’ve always enjoyed taking passengers and sharing my passion for riding motorcycles. But when my young daughter, Kaia, started asking me to take her for rides, I would immediately dismiss the idea. It’s one thing to accept the risk of injuring my own body, but to put my own daughter at risk was unimaginable.
