Harley and the Davidsons.....

Did you See the 3 part series on Discovery?
It ended yesterday, they showed all 3 part consecutive yesterdaY!

It was a series, with some drama, about the early days and founding of Harley Davidson.
Lot of fairly accurate history of the birth of American motorcycles.

The 3rd part ended with the birth of the 'knucklehead'

I thought it was great!! And no, I'm not a Harley rider.

Re: Harley and the Davidsons.....

Well, I was bored yesterday, so promptly after that post, I downloaded it and watched the first 2 episodes. Not bad at all. I was expecting it to be more of a documentary than a story. It's pretty good. It has some interesting perspectives that I dont want to elaborate too much on and ruin for others.. I've never followed HD history much as I dont care for what they have become. Either way, some interesting insight, whether it be made up for the movie, or if it is historically accurate. One thing I DO like though, is that is not an over-commercialized show full of propaganda on why you should own a Harley Davidson motorcycle, and it definitely humanizes the now corporate faceless company that is Harley Davidson.

Re: Harley and the Davidsons.....

I am downloading the series now. Hope to find it entertaining to say the least. I would have watched it sooner but I had to finish Sons of Anarchy first haha
