In 1904, the first Harley-Davidson® dealership opened for business as C.H. Lang of Chicago, Illinois. Fast forward to over a century later and the Harley-Davidson® name can be seen at the top of more than 1,500 dealerships worldwide. When someone in America thinks of a motorcycle, nine out of ten times that someone will picture a Harley-Davidson® in their head. Anyone who has ever walked a street in this country has heard the unmistakable rumble of a Harley® engine singing through a set of chromed pipes as it rolls down the road, setting off car alarms with its rock n roll tune. From club riders to weekend cruisers, America loves the, “Get your motor running”, a romance that comes with riding a motorcycle. But, Americans wouldn’t be able to get their fix for freedom if there weren’t dealerships to sell the bikes.
