Hello everyone!

 

I¡¯m glad to see such a positive response to our website. I want to apologize for not updating the site sooner. We¡¯ve had some slow internet connections at the hotels that have held us back a bit.

 

I¡¯m glad to inform you, everyone¡¯s safe! We¡¯ve be doing tons of riding and site seeing.

 

Jinan city, the capital of Shandong, gave us a wonderful kick off to our Harley ride. We arrived at the Shandong Culture Industry Fair to find a huge crowd of people and large banner welcoming us. Jinan was only the start Shandong welcoming Harley into their province.

 

We headed to Qufu to be in the hometown of Confucius on his birthday¡ªhence the name of the Tour! Again, we were welcomed by the local residents with open arms. There was an Official Welcome Ceremony held for Harley-Davidson with music, dancers, and local government officials who gave us a welcoming speech and then opened the city gates for the riders to march through in a procession. Our riders were treated like celebrities ¨C and everyone wanted a picture with the guys and their bikes!

Dear Family, Friends and HOGS,

 

We¡¯re having a wonderful time here in China. We arrived in Shandong yesterday morning, and the people have been so friendly and hospitable. The bikes were ready and waiting for the riders outside when we arrived at the hotel! There were plenty of media and curious people waiting to hear and see what Harley is all about. After the local police provided a safety and traffic lesson, the riders fueled their bikes.  We had a wonderful dinner and now we¡¯re all ready show China Harley-Davidson!

 

I¡¯m sure many of the riders have told you that you will be able to track our progress throughout the trip. We¡¯ve started posting pictures from our first days in Beijing. On the homepage, you can click the day you¡¯d like to view the pictures from under the ¡°News Events¡± section.

 

Feel free to leave us comments and ask us questions. We¡¯d love to hear from all of you! Of course, check back with us, we¡¯ll be updating you regularly with our news and photos.

 

Thanks,

 

Amanda
