#Harley-Davidson #Video - Nice TV commercial from Harley-Davidson of the motorcycle's natural habitat (no, not the garage, but the streets). Good music, nice images.

#Harley-Davidson #CzechRepublic #Advertising - Here are four ads from Harley-Davidson Czech Republic which on their own are pretty good, but should never have been used by the Milwaukee motorcycle manufacturer.

Dave Zien Flagged Harley
Harley-Davidson logo
#Harley-Davidson #FlyingTheFlag - Harley-Davidson has decided not to honor a warranty claim for one of their new motorcycles (a trike) since the owner was flying flags on the bike, and that was not goof for the motorcycle. Company suicide?


 


13 May, 2014 - Ads: Harley-Davidson Czech Republic - Sexual?
Harley Davidson Czech Ad
Harley-Davidson logo
#Advertisement #Harley-Davidson #Weird - Okay, here we go again folks. Back to the strange Harley-Davidson print advertisements. For a while, things had gotten better at the Milwaukee based manufacturer, but these five ads from the Czech Republic are just plain weird.

All ads are sexual, are based on a "novel", use sexual terms, and all have as tag line "Stop Reading, Start Living".

#Harley-Davidson #Advertisement - Here is a recent TV commercial from the Milwaukee motorcycle manufacturer known as Harley-Davidson. It's for their new Low Rider.

I love the text that appears on the commercial...

#Advertisement #Harley-Davidson - The folks at Harley-Davidson Canada have come up with a TV commercial for the French part of Canada called 'Perfectly Too Much'.

The video is not bad at all, and resembles a lot like my morning wake-up activities ....


 


4 March, 2014 - Ads: Harley-Davidson Brazil - Huh?

#Advertisement #Harley-Davidson #Brazil - Yet again, Brazilian ads, this time for Harley-Davidson motorcycle, miss the mark.

Or is it just me not understanding them?

#Harley-Davidson #Pope #Charity - The Pope received a Harley-Davidson a few months ago, and what does he do with it? You'd think he would go for nice leisurely rides around the Vatican, or the hills of Rome on his new motorcycle. But no, he didn't. He gave it away...........

From all the cakes, pastries, and what have you not in the shape of a motorcycle or the manufacturer's logo, Harley wins hands down. Not one brand comes even close to the sheer number of sweet things made, nor the creativity and masterful creations I have found on the internet. Some of them should never be eaten; they are that wonderfully made - pure art...........

24 September, 2013 - Ads: Harley-Davidson Kids Clothing - No More Bullying
Harley Davidson Kids Clothing No Bullying
Harley-Davidson logo
#Advertisement #Harley-Davidson - So if I understand these print advertisements correctly, if kids wear Harley-Davidson clothing they will not be bullied at school. Right?

WTF? Putting on these t-shirts either makes them the main target for bullies, or it makes them the bully. The ads were made by Publicis in Colombia, and I'd say they need to go back to school. And then the slogans printed on the t-shirts; "Play Hard or Go Home" and "No Pain, No Game".... Ripe for bullies...

Sorry Mr. Harley and Mr. Davidson, not very good these ads...........

19 September, 2013 - Video: Harley-Davidson Project Rushmore Ad
Harley Davidson Rushmore
Harley-Davidson logo
#Advertisement #Harley-Davidson #Rushmore - This is an unusual and low key TV commercial for Harley-Davidson. Usually Harley has strong, in your face TV ads, but this one is more focused on new technology than rider culture.

The ad focusses on 'newer' technology, like GPS and lights. Using an oldie but goody music track ('Come Together', a rather well chosen sound track), the advertisement shows a different Harley.

The special motorcycle was used in several key events for both Harley's birthday and the stunt team's flying exhibitions. Now the customized v-Rod is going to be auctioned off...........

#HarleyDavidson #Party #Celebrities - Unless you have been living in a cave in Afghanistan you will know that Harley-Davidson is 110 years old, and like any living being that age, she is throwing a mega party.

Motorcycle riders from all over the USA, but also many from abroad have come to help celebrate this amazing birthday, and even motorcycle riding celebrities like Tricia Helfer and Katee Sackhoff have joined the party. Here are some photos of the event.


 


29 July, 2013 - The Cost Of A Motorcycle Around The World: Harley-Davidson 48
Harley Davdison forty eight
Harley-Davidson logo
#Prices #HarleyDavidson #Motorcycles- Prices differ in each country, that is something we all know and understand. Cost of living, import duties, basic materials, etc they all differ per country. That is why you can not buy the same thing for the same price in different countries, and that applies to motorcycles as much as anything else.

I decided to have a look at what the same motorcycle model costs around the world. It is not an easy exercise since most motorcycle manufacturer's web sites do not list prices, and if they do, often they do not sell the same model, or list prices in some countries but not in others.

I noticed that Harley-Davidson was the most consistent (but not always), so I looked at the base price for Harley Forty-Eight Sportster motorcycle. Using the starting price listed in their web site (you will see a link to the price I found below for each country) I converted the local currency to US$ using the currency rate established on Monday 29 July 2013...........

27 June, 2013 - Video: Harley-Davidson Dealer - The Way It Should Be Done
Video clip inside
Harley-Davidson logo
#HarleyDavidson #Dealer #Commercial - Most TV commercials for motorcycle dealers (or car dealers) involve some guy, usually in a big hat, shouting out that they are the best, the cheapest, the easiest, the sexiest, the.... fill in the blanks. But whatever the words, it's loud, and it involves shouting.

Here's a Harley-Davidson motorcycle dealer that has understood, and in their TV commercial, there's no shouting, not even talking - just some words on the screen why their shop is the place to go to.

And that is the way I like to see my motorcycle dealers advertise. The dealer: Lone Wolf Harley-Davidson.


 


13 June, 2013 - Harley-Davidson Is Blessed. Official
Pope Blessing Harley Davidson
Vatican City flag
#Pope #HarleyDavidson #Blessing - There are many occasions and events where a priest blesses a group of motorcycles. But this is more than a priest... it's the Pope himself. Pope Francis blessed 1,400 motorcycles, all of them Harley-Davidsons, who had gathered at St. Peter's Square in the Vatican to celebrate the 110th anniversary of the Milwaukee brand.

The Pope was even presented with two Harley-Davidsons and a black leather jacket. So now the Pope has two Ducati Multistradas (see related) and two Harley-Davidson.

But are we going to see the man ride around on one of them, wearing the black leather jacket?


 


10 June, 2013 - Video: Harley-Davidson - Welcome On Board
Harley Davidson China Welcome Onboard
Harley-Davidson logo
#HarleyDavidson #Advertisement #China - A "feel good" Harley-Davidson TV commercial with lots of Chinese text, but what looks like it was shot in California with American bikers.

So is this a real Harley-Davidson China commercial but they could not afford to make it in China, or is it a Harley USA commercial onto which they put Chinese text...........

17 May, 2013 - China: Annual Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Gathering - China’s Sturgis
China Annual Harley Davidson Rally 2013
China Annual Harley Davidson Rally 2013
#Harley-Davidson #China - No matter where you are in the world, like-minded motorcycle owners will turn up at some annual event. The biggest is Harley-Davidson's Sturgis, and this Chinese event falls way behind in terms of participants.

But in a country where a Harley-Davidson's import tax is as much as the motorcycle itself, it's only the rich that can afford it. And not many of them participate in these "rowdy" events... BTW is that the Village People in photo #10?


 


15 May, 2013 - Video: Is This A Real Harley-Davidson Ad Or A Fake? Opinions?
Harley Davidson Crossdresser ad
Harley-Davidson logo
#Harley-Davidson #Advertisement #Fake - Here's a TV commercial that has got me baffled. Is this a real Harley-Davidson motorcycle advertisement or just a fake? It's not in English, but that shouldn't matter.... just looking at the images makes me wonder if this is real.

Somehow I doubt it... I don't think Harley would touch the subject. And what do the words say??? Anyone?

What do you think? Real or Fake?


 


7 May, 2013 - This Made Me Smile - A Harley-Davidson Merchandising Idea
Harley Diaper Bag
Harley-Davidson logo
#Harley #Funny - When I saw this, I just had to smile. Many Harley-Davidson motorcycle riders cultivate the idea of a tough, hardcore, biker image. Mustaches (and you should see the men's moustaches), wild hair, tattoos, leather vests & chaps, scars... you name it. All for a tough biker image.

.... and then they walk in with this Harley-Davidson Skull & Crossbones black bag. You'd expect the biker to open the bag and at the very least remove a beer bottle which they open with their teeth. Or out comes the knives, guns and brass knuckles. But no, you'd be wrong..............

2 May, 2013 - Beautiful Series Of Photos Of A Harley Motorcycle
1942 Harley Davidson Photos
#Photos #HarleyDavidson - A photo of a motorcycle is just that... a photo. But not all photos are alike, even if the subject of the photo is a motorcycle. Here's a site that has published a series of photos of one subject, a 1942 Harley-Davidson.

The motorcycle is in dire need for some TLC, but the photos are a work of art. Beautifully framed and cropped, the light produces a great atmosphere.


 


13 March, 2013 - USA: Cops In Richmond Prefer Honda Motorcycles Over Harley
Richmond County Honda Harley
USA flag
It's a strange read when you see that in Richmond Country, Georgia, USA, the motorcycle police prefer Honda motorcycles over their Harley-Davidson ones, even if Harley has been a traditional supplier of LEO bikes since their existence.

But according to the Richmond cops (and other places in the USA), although the Hondas are much more expensive, they are safer, lighter and easier to use. Also, an important factor is when in pursuit, the Harley takes its time, while the Honda reaches faster speeds much quicker. Also having a water-cooled Honda engine is a blessing when temperatures go over the 100°F. But according to the cops, the Harley looks better...............

Harley Davidson Dallas Lifestyle
Harley-Davidson logo
#Harley-Davidson - Here's a TV commercial from a Dallas Harley-Davidson motorcycle dealer. Lots of girls in mini-bikinis, lots of platitudes (like brotherhood, individuality, etc), but at least we see girls riding a motorcycle, not just in bikini.

I wonder if in real like there are these bikini-clad girls at the dealership??


 


19 February, 2013 - Ad: Harley-Davidson Advertisement Honoring Jim Marshall
Harley Jim Marshall Ad
Harley-Davidson logo
Back on April 5th, 2012, Jim Marshall, aka the "Father of Loud", passed away. Jim was the maker of the famous Marshall amplifiers for guitars, used by most famous (and also by many unknown) musicians the world over.

Harley-Davidson's ad agency was quick of the mark, since they ran these ads the same day, asking the world to make noise (preferably with Harley motorcycles) to honor the man.

A fitting tribute to a man who made music hearable from far.


 


7 February, 2013 - Video: Macho, Sexist, Harley-Davidson Dealer Commercial
Nyc Harley Davidson TV Ad
Harley-Davidson logo
Wow, in this day and age that something like this can get through.... it's a TV commercial from a local Harley-Davidson dealer in New York, and although it's got great image and music, it's pretty macho & sexist.

A bunch of male Harley bikers gather at the local watering hole, and decide to go "fishing", which means finding girls and bring them back to the pub. None of the girls ride themselves, all are pillions, and one girl even leaves a sportsbike to go on the Harley. Does this mean that girls don't ride Harley? I don't think so..............

8 January, 2013 - Video: Harley-Davidson Make Your Own Noise
Video clip
Harley-Davidson logo
Okay, here's 1 minute of my life I'll never get back. It's a Harley-Davidson TV commercial (I think, but not sure), and it looks a bit like a sci-fi movie.

The message is quite clever as is the final (and only) text, but to sit 1 minute watching two bikers walk to their motorcycles is waaay too long. The whole advertisement is 1 minute 15 seconds.


 


13 December, 2012 - Xmas2012: Use Harley-Davidson To Keep You Warm This Winter
Christmas Shiny Ball 2012
There are parts in this world where the winter can be harsh and cold. Cold enough to curl up next to the fire to keep warm. But usually a fire isn't enough to keep you warm, and when you don't have a fireplace, then you've got a problem.

Putting your beloved one over you (beloved = motorcycle) is not going to be easy, nor very warm. But this Christmas gift might just do the trick.

The Harley-Davidson Fleece Blanket, or pop-up hamper...........

Okay, if you really want to show the world and his dog that you are into Harley-Davidson motorcycles, this gift is for you (or for someone else who is).

A pair of stud earrings with the famous Milwaukee based motorcycle manufacturer's logo, in their original colors. The studs are made out of surgical stainless steel...........

22 November, 2012 - Video: 2 Harley-Davidson Ads Featuring Guitars
Video clip
Harley-Davidson logo
Here are two TV commercials from Harley-Davidson featuring guitars. The first one, I presume is from the USA, features a guitar that "plays" motorcycle music, ie, engine noise. Clever, but not as good as the second one.

The second one is from South Korea (although it looks like they're playing at Stonehenge) and there they've used the sound of the motorcycle engine as part of the guitar music, using the engine as beat for the music. Nicely done.


 


14 November, 2012 - Video: Harley-Davidson Sportster Seventy-Two Commercial
Video clip
Harley-Davidson logo
Over the years we've become used to pretty bad TV commercials from Harley-Davidson, but over the last year or so their ads have improved dramatically. At the same time, Harley changed their advertisement agency... coincidence?

Here's a pretty good TV commercial for the Harley-Davidson Sportster Seventy-Two model year 2012. The advertisement is "moody", set by some great music by Heath & Errol (a music group I could not find anywhere on the internet). The first part of the video, you don't see any motorcycles, then it's a nicely captured motorcycle ride.


 


31 August, 2012 - Video: Harley-Davidson - Stereo Typical
Video clip
Harley-Davidson logo
Some 6 months ago, Harley-Davidson released a YouTube commercial for their lifestyle. They called it #StereoTypicalHarley, and the video clip entails several Harley riders, male and female, on their motorcycle with their social address shown (in this case Twitter). This is then followed by the person's occupation or main point.

It's an interesting concept, since they show all different kinds of people and their jobs, from students to police officers, all tied together with some music which goes faster and faster.


 


19 July, 2012 - Harley: When One Engine Is Not Enough For Your Motorcycle
Double Engine Harley
Harley-Davidson logo
I would have thought that nowadays motorcycle engines were big & powerful, and that you didn't really need more. But I was wrong.... meet the Harley-Davidson with TWO engines

The double engined motorcycle can be found at the Harley-Davidson museum in Milwaukee.


 


17 April, 2012 - "Big" Harley-Davidson Gathering In Cuba
Havana harley Davidson Gathering 2012
Havana harley Davidson Gathering 2012
I guess that in Cuban terms, 100 or so Harley-Davidson motorcycles is enormous, but still it's nice to see this (Sturgis need not to worry). Remember that these guys & gals can not buy new motorcycles, so they need to keep restoring the old bikes.

I bet you that most Cuban bikers are very skilled mechanics...


 


10 April, 2012 - Ad: Harley-Davidson Riders Use Blow-Up Dolls ?
Ad Harley Davidson Blow Up Doll Turkey
Harley-Davidson logo
Funny. Turkish PR firm, Big, made this print advertisement which is funny, and well thought out, especially if you look at the text.

The Harley-Davidson ad reads "Nothing can replace the real one. Use original Harley-Davidson parts". Smart if you look at the pillion passenger...


 


29 March, 2012 - Video: Finally A Good Harley-Davidson Commercial
Video clip
Harley-Davidson logo
It has been a while since I've seen a good Harley-Davidson motorcycle TV commercial, in fact it has been a VERY long time, but this advertisement does the trick.

It's not a "in your face" ad, nor is it about having an alternative lifestyle, but more subtle, and more realistic. It's about dreaming, and tht's what motorcycle riding is all about.


 


27 February, 2012 - Video: Harley-Davidson, Made In America
Video clip
Harley-Davidson logo
The video below is not a TV commercial for Harley-Davidson motorcycles, like we've seen so many before, usually quite bad. But in fact it's more an infommercial for manufacturing in the USA, using Harley as example..

The segment is well done, highlighting the virtues of Harley's know-how in manufacturing motorcycles, all made-in-the-USA.


 


15 February, 2012 - TRT: The Tilting Harley-Davidson Motorcycle
TRT Harley
TRT Harley
Jim wanted a nice trike, and wanted it to be Harley-Davidson motorcycle based. He teamed up with Too Kool Cycles, and made this funky trike, but with a twist...

Instead of putting the third wheel in the back, he put it in the front. And to make the trike act more like a motorcycle, the front wheels tilt when you lean it into a curve. It'll angle up to 25°.

What's even nicer, he's gone into business. He is planning to sell the TRT as a kit for late model Harley-Davidson Tourer models.


 


31 January, 2012 - Ads: Harley-Davidson - Hand-picked
Harley Handpicked Headmaster UK
Harley-Davidson logo
I really don't understand the Harley-Davidson advertisement philosophy. Their main thread is rebellion; being a bad person. So does that mean that Harley motorcycle riders are all bad people? Because that's what their ads say.

Here are three print ads from McCann-Erickson in the UK. The first one is actually pretty good, the other two expand on the main theme and the message gets lost.


 


24 January, 2012 - Video: Harley-Davidson Multiple Lovers Ad
Video clip
Harley-Davidson logo
This Spanish TV commercial is not a real Harley-Davidson TV advertisement, but it could have been. It's very much in style with previous Harley ads.

Nicely done, quite professional, it shows a young guy on his Harley motorcycle going from woman to woman....


 


17 January, 2012 - Ads: Harley-Davidson Spirit - Baby and Tattoo
Harley Davidson Spirit Tattoo
Harley-Davidson logo
Again, Harley-Davidson is seen promoting the Harley motorcycle lifestyle, not their motorcycles. In these two print advertisements, made in Brazil by Momaprograganda, they're showing the future Harley riders.

The first one is not bad, the second one is just plain weird. The first one, a kid pasting fake tattoos is kind-of funny, but as someone pointed out at the source site (see Via: below), you'll notice that there aren't any motorcycle in the tattoos, just a few cars.


 


13 January, 2012 - Video: Harley-Davidson Cologne - Bad Ass Smell
Video clip
Harley-Davidson logo
I'm sorry, but this just doesn't do it for me. It's kind of funny, but the tag line works against the product. The product is Harley-Davidson Cologne, and saying "Bad Ass Smell" is like saying your perfume smells of a public toilet.... not nice.

I realize that Harley is playing on the tough as nail biker image they portray in all their advertisements, and it probably works for motorcycle sales, but for perfumes? It's almost an oxymoron, "bad ass" biker perfume.


 


19 December, 2011 - Xmas2011: Harley-Davidson Motorcycle - Share
Harley Davidson Share
Christmas Shiny Ball 2011
You might lust after a Harley-Davidson motorcycle but can't afford one. Or you could be a proud owner of a Harley, and want to make sure you are reminded of your ride.

Or maybe you know someone who has a Harley, and this is a great gift for Harley lovers.

It's a single share in the Harley-Davidson company. The real share can be purchased on its own, or better yet, framed. Remember, if you go and buy shares in Harley via a stock broker, you'll never see the paper work. It's all done electronically, so you'll not have anything to hang on your wall. This is a real share in Harley's stock.


 


4 October, 2011 - Ads: Harley-Davidson - Just Do Not Get It! Help
Harley Davidson Saul Panqueva Colombia
Harley Davidson Hugo Roncancio Colombia
Below are two print ads for Harley-Davidson in Colombia. The ads were made by Publicis who have made some very good commercials for Harley, but these has got me totally confused.

What are the messages?


 


27 September, 2011 - Ad: Harley-Davidson - Scratch and Lose
Harley Davidson Scratch and Lose
Harley-Davidson logo
Interesting concept to advertize scratch-free motorcycle helmets by Harley-Davidson from Colombia.

They used a scratch card (the kind where you scratch away zones) to unfold a story. The ad had enormous positive results in their sales.


 


8 September, 2011 - Video: Harley-Davidson Goes To The Dogs
Video clip
Harley-Davidson logo
In a surprisingly good TV commercial, Harley-Davidson shows that it still has it in making good ads. Or maybe it's because they have recently changed PR/Ad agency.

This TV spot is made by Victors & Spoils in the USA, and shows that motorcycle riders love dogs..... funny and well done. Positive message, even to cagers.


 


11 August, 2011 - Give Your Friends A Harley-Davidson Toilet
Embroidered Harley Eagle Toilet Seat
A Harley-Davidson crapper... What will they think off next?

If you're a lover of Harley-Davidson motorcycles, would you use such a toilet? It would seem like a desecration to me.


 


7 July, 2011 - Video: Harley-Davidson Sportster - Not For Everyone
Video clip
Harley-Davidson logo
Back in the days that Harley-Davidson still made reasonably good motorcycle TV commercials... here's one of them. Not that it's mind blowing or well done, like the Bajaj ones, but it's not bad.

This is not aggressive, and though it doesn't say much, it says a lot by not saying much. Confused??


 


6 July, 2011 - Video: Harley-Davidson Timpanogos With Curt Doussett
Video clip
Harley-Davidson logo
A pretty good Harley-Davidson motorcycle dealer TV commercial, not one of those where the owner shouts their stuff on TV, but one that has a story.

It's from Utah motorcycle dealer Timpanogos, and it stars actor/TV presenter Curt Doussett.


 


29 June, 2011 - Video: Harley-Davidson - Drive Your Heart
Video clip
Harley-Davidson logo
Another TV commercial from Harley-Davidson motorcycles, without showing motorcycles or even bikers, and excluding women.

Very generic ad for Harley... just words.


 


18 May, 2011 - Video: Harley-Davidson 250cc Motorcycle TV Ad
Video clip
Harley-Davidson logo
When one says a 250cc Harley-Davidson motorcycle, you already know that we're not talking about a recent motorcycle.

Here's a TV commercial for a 250cc Harley/AMF bike. I just love their slogan... just watch it..


 


19 April, 2011 - Ad: Belgium Harley-Davidson Dealer Move - Classy
Ad Harley Davidson Move Belgium
Harley-Davidson logo
Very elaborate (and probably expensive) address move advertisement for a Belgium Harley-Davidson motorcycle dealer....

 


15 April, 2011 - Video: A Shiny Harley-Davidson
Video clip
Here is a Harley-Davidson product for all. Well... it's a TV advertisement from the year 2000 for a Harley-Davidson. Not the motorcycle, but for a Rayovac flashlight.

Actually, the ad is not bad, not because of the great images, but the words they used to describe their product. The Harley/Rayovac flashlight is not made anymore, so it can't be bought.


 


23 March, 2011 - Video: Harley-Davidson Black Label Clothing
Video clip
Harley-Davidson logo
A new Harley-Davidson advertisement, but not for their motorcycles, but for their new clothing line; Black Label.

Still quite aggressive, but better than a few years ago...


 


16 March, 2011 - Video: Harley-Davidson - Life Is A Highway
Harley-Davidson logo
Video clip
Nice Harley-Davidson motorcycle ad, if it is an official Harley ad?

It's a bit artsy, but the story is good. Why work the same humdrum job if you can go riding?


 


22 February, 2011 - Video: Harley-Davidson Triple S Ad
Video clip
Harley-Davidson logo
Motorcycle dealer's TV commercials usually suck, but this one, Triple S - a Harley-Davidson dealer, is good and even funny.

It's an older one, and it's for Christmas.

You too can have a glass cockpit on your Harley-Davidson motorcycle. Just like the upmarket cars, you can view your important data on your iPhone while riding your Harley.

Easy to install, no fuss, just look at your data on the run. Perfect and not expensive.

Video clip

A Swedish Harley-Davidson motorcycle (dealer) TV ad, including an animated character.

It also includes the one piece of music that is used over and over again with motorcycle ads.


 


4 February, 2011 - Video: Harley-Davidson Motorcycles and Cages
Video clip
Harley-Davidson logo
Here's a good TV ad from Harley-Davidson motorcycles.

It uses the biker slang for "cars", being cages. Funny, seeing all sorts of vehicles driving around in a cage.


 


25 January, 2011 - Video: Harley-Davidson Life Coaches Ad
Video clip
Harley-Davidson logo
Not a bad Harley-Davidson TV ad. I don't know when this ran, but it looks recent. The message is clear, it's a bit like the motivation posters saying "you never see a motorcycle at a psychologist office".

The ad shows you many statistics of American trying to "feel" good, like shrinks, botox, self improvement even pedicures, but if you really want to feel good, but a motorcycle!


 


4 January, 2011 - Video: Harley-Davidson, Women & Motorcycles
Video clip
Harley-Davidson logo
Women have been riding motorcycles for quite some time now, but it is only recently that Harley-Davidson has woken up to that idea.

Now Harley is promoting females riding motorcycles, and here's one TV ad to prove it.
