Famous Harley Davidson Riders!

The list of famous Harley riders is almost as long as this motorcycleís history. Hundreds of thousands of people have owned, ridden and raced this classic brand of motorcycle, and because of its superstar status, many famous people have joined the ranks. Whether for pleasure or for stature, itís not uncommon for well-known actors, politicians and others who have become famous for other reasons to own and ride Harleys. Though itís not documented the very first woman to ride a Harley Davidson motorcycle was probably Janet Davidson. Janet was an aunt of Arthur, Walter and William Davidson. She helped her nephews out by using her artistic talents to paint pinstriping and lettering on their motorcycles.So here, for your entertainment, is the low-down on some of the more famous Harley riders of our time.
Heading up the list of famous Harley riders is Malcolm Forbes, the founder of Forbes Magazine and reportedly one of the wealthiest men ever. Like many professional businessmen men approaching mid-life, Malcolm Forbes began riding Harley Davidson motorcycles during his late 40s. He enjoyed riding Harleys so much that he quickly amassed a collection of more than 50 Harley Davidson motorcycles. His personal endorsement of this brand of motorcycle helped sales soar to even greater heights.

Jay Leno, famous late-night television celebrity, is a proud owner and rider of several Harley Davidson motorcycles, too. In fact, this celebrity is one of the few famous Harley riders to actually enjoy getting his hands greasy by doing his own maintenance and repair work. Thatís likely attributed to Jayís first job as a mechanic, which he held while in college.

 

Brigitte Bardot was a famous movie star and pinup star in the 1950ís. In the 1960ís she became so enamored by Harley Davidson Motorcycles that she debuted her hit single entitled Harley Davidson. Also popular was a photograph of her astride her favorite motorcycle. She is wearing hot pants and a partially unzipped leather jacket.

And who can forget Dennis Hopper and Peter Fonda, probably the most famous Harley riders of all time. The photo from a scene in the 1969 movie Easy Rider of the two of them atop their Harleys was seen around the world and is still one of the most sought-after and most recognizable photos of all time.

Elvis Presley was known to have a Harley or two, and photographs of this legendary music icon riding his Harleys are just as popular as the Easy Rider photograph. Some other famous Harley riders include Don Johnson, Jackson Browne, Mickey Rourke, Tina Turner, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Elizabeth Taylor. And celebrities arenít the only famous people riding Harleys. During an appearance in his campaign to become President of the United States, then Governor Bill Clinton happily posed astride a Harley.

And although itís no longer the case, the group that caused much buzz and brought a bit of negative publicity to the world of Harley Davidson is the infamous Hellís Angels. This brand of motorcycle was the motorcycle of choice for this group of hard core, bad blood ruffians who could instill fear in the masses just by rolling into town on their Harleys.

Famous Harley riders get all the attention, but the typical Harley rider is a married, male, Anglo, educated, white-collar worker over 30 years of age with an above-average income. More and more, women are taking up riding Harleys and one need only look at the full line of clothing, accessories and other products geared towards women for proof. The truth is, hog fever can strike anyone who can afford to ride a Harley, famous or not!
