Harley conducts free rider training for active military personnel, veterans

Milwaukee, Wisconsin-based motorcycle manufacturer Harley-Davidson, Inc. announced on Monday, November 9 that it will be offering free Riding Academy classes for former and current members of the United States military starting on Jan. 1, 2016 and lasting throughout the year of 2016.

Harley managing director and former U.S. Army officer Christian Walters said they are undertaking this mission in order to “grow the sport of motorcycling in the U.S.” and “bring people into motorcycling.”

Marine Corps veteran and former state lawmaker from Chippewa Falls, Dave Zien, for his part, said the training is important for many veterans because “there have been so many veterans, coming back from Iraq and Afghanistan, killed on a bike because they didn’t have rider training and they thought they were invincible, immortal, and indestructible.”

At Habush Habush & Rottier S.C., our legal team is grateful to the employees of Harley-Davidson who are working to reduce the amount of injuries and deaths associated with motorcycle accidents. While we hope these efforts prove successful, our attorneys know that many of these accidents are not caused by negligent motorcyclists themselves, but rather by drivers of vehicles who are not paying attention to their surroundings. If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident that you did not cause, contact our offices at 800-242-2874 to learn how we can help you today.
