Harley Davidson in China (from “The Alantic”)

I read an interesting article from the online version of “The Atlantic” regarding Harley Davidson motorcycle riding in China. The article was written around the 5th Annual Harley Davidson National Rally. But, beyond the cool photography, the things that struck me most were:

Harley’s are HEAVELY taxed!
Harley’s are categorized with horses, bicycles and electric bikes!
Harley’s cannot be ridden on highways and major avenues!
Harley riders in China are the same as Harley riders around the globe!

Well I have called my bike a steel horse, but really, not riding on highways that has to suck.

  3. They usually take the back roads through the mountains and hills. im told they are perfect bike roads.
