Harley-Davidson Offers Free Riding Academy for Service MembersHD Honors Military –

The Motor Company from Milwaukee recently announced that they will once again be offering free Harley-Davidson Riding Academy training for all active and retired members of the U.S. military as well as reservists and veterans. The offer will now extend from January 1 to December 31, 2016. Harley-Davidson’s Managing Director, Christian Walters, himself a former officer in the U.S. Army, says, “One of our objectives is to grow the sport of motorcycling in the U.S. Thousands of members of the military have learned to ride through the program so far. We’re proud to extend this opportunity in 2016 so even more military personnel can enjoy the very freedom they protect.”

To show Harley-Davidson’s continued support for service members, Walters will be participating in today’s America’s Parade in New York City. This comes a year after the Free Riding Academy program was first introduced aboard the aircraft carrier USS Yorktown in Charleston, SC.

Former or current military personnel who would like to take advantage of the offer need only walk into their local Harley-Davidson dealer or go to h-d.com/AmericanHeroes. If a Riding Academy isn’t offered in the immediate vicinity, the Motor Company will pay for the service member’s attendance to another motorcycle safety program. Those currently deployed can receive a voucher good through 2017.
