I'm lucky enough to have visited the Harley-Davidson Museum in Milwaukee three times properly (and a few more quick walk-throughs when I've been researching there), spending hours looking around this wonderfully designed and well curated museum. The latest special exhibition is right up our street: The Race Of Gentlemen.
Go to our special Harley-Davidson Museum The Race of Gentlemen Story to see fantastic photos of the characters and machinery that make this mainly New Jersey beach racing scene so memorable.
I haven't attended the race, but I've seen a few of the hardcore regulars ride on a frozen lake in Wisconsin and they ride hard. Not afraid to lay their valuable machines down in the slush. They sum up the ride it, don't hide it ethos better than most.
