Ride Free: A Harley-Davidson Memoir

As grandson to one of the founders of the Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Company, it’s safe to say that Willie G. Davidson really has lived the “Harley life”.

From attending countless motorcycle rallies and races to frequent cross-country rides, he’s spent most of his years on the back of a bike and loved it. No surprise, then, that he was the reason Harley-Davidson didn’t fold when bankruptcy loomed. It’s largely thanks to him and his efforts to maintain the legacy of his grandfather and co-founders that it remains one of the country’s premier motorcycle brands.

Now, in the pages of Ride Free, read the memoir of the man known affectionally to all Harley lovers as “Willie G.”. From his adventures to the challenges he faced to the memories and events that shaped who he is, the book offers riveting insights into one of the best-known and most beloved men in the motorcycle world. Plus, you’ll get a behind-the-scenes look at what went into the creation and production of some of the world’s most iconic bikes. Bikers and motorcycle lovers, this is a must-read book.
