Scooter and I hit the road with Harley-Davidson to honor our veterans with MISSION: “THANK YOU”.   We asked Americans to nominate members of the military – past or present – who dedicated their life to protecting our freedom. Based on America’s nominations, we made eight stops along my cross country journey to give away new Harley-Davidson motorcycles including Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. MISSION: “THANK YOU” was accomplished with a bike being awarded in New York City on Veterans Day prior to the worlds largest Veterans Parade.

Harley-Davidson and I believe that every American should be able to experience the profound freedom of motorcycle riding, especially those who have risked their lives to protect our freedom. Along with MISSION: “THANK YOU,” Harley-Davidson does a lot to serve our veterans and active duty personnel.
