Sinners Beware in the Ghost Rider #1 Trailer !

New York, NY- September 6, 2019 – The devil’s bounty hunter returns!
Ghost Rider streaks out of the underworld on his flaming motorcycle –
with a skull to match – in an all-new ongoing series. Now, take one
hell of a ride in a new trailer featuring Editor in Chief C.B.
Cebulski, Assistant Editor Chris Robinson and Writer Ed Brisson!
Following his shocking accession, Johnny Blaze is now the king of the
underworld! What challenges does a hero face when he presides over the
worst humanity – and inhumanity – has to offer? While Blaze acts as
demonic warden down below, fellow Ghost Rider Danny Ketch is tasked
with collecting souls above. How does Ketch cope with being forced to
serve in a role he despises?
“One thing we’re really diving into is what this really means to [the
Ghost Riders’] lives,” says Brisson.
“What is the Spirit of Vengeance? Where does it come from? Why does it
possess certain people and not others?…What’s the mythos of the Ghost
Rider character? Those are the questions that we’re going to answer in
this series for fans, finally,” promises Cebulski.
Ghost Rider #1 arrives on October 2 in comic shops, on the Marvel
Comics App and on
Marvel.com!

LEGO x HARLEY-DAVIDSON
The LEGO Group recently revealed its latest LEGO® Creator Expert model – a Harley-Davidson® Fat Boy® that cruised into LEGO Stores globally and the Harley-Davidson Museum. Developed in collaboration with Harley-Davidson, this detailed LEGO interpretation of the iconic Milwaukee motorcycle captures the beauty of the real-life machine with finishes, surfaces, and design elements crafted to replicate the full-size Harley-Davidson Fat Boy. Featuring 1,023 pieces, the model comes complete with solid-disc wheels, teardrop fuel tank, integrated speedometer, and dual exhaust pipes. Visit The Shop to purchase your LEGO® Creator Expert model – Harley-Davidson® Fat Boy.

To celebrate the launch, LEGO Master Builders created a life-size model of the motorcycle, complete with silver coated parts, Wi-Fi animation control, sound and light effects to imitate a real Harley-Davidson® Fat Boy® and 6,000 special LEGO elements. The extraordinary creation took 865 hours to build, is made of 69,569 pieces and will be on display at the world’s only Harley-Davidson Museum for a limited time.

EXHIBITS
“Daredevils: A Century of Spine-Tingling Spectacles” (through Sept. 8)
Step right up and behold amazing displays of danger and derring-do! Daredevils have thrilled audiences for centuries. What began with horse trick riders in circuses inspired new generations of entertainers on bicycles, motorcycles, cars – even flying sofa chairs. From touring thrill shows to Hollywood movie stunt work, “Daredevils” celebrates the exciting history of these death-defying entertainers who spend countless hours perfecting their exploits. Witness how incredible feats from long ago inspire modern-day risk-takers. The H-D Museum cordially invites one and all, children big and small to behold how daredevils are born! Please note: Select photos from the exhibit can be found at this page.

“Building a Milwaukee Icon: Harley-Davidson’s Juneau Avenue Factory” (Opens Sept. 6)
A recently recovered cache of architectural drawings includes plans for the original Juneau Avenue facility. The pencil drawings, along with archival photographs, demonstrate the whirlwind pace of the company’s early growth. While building an international business—going from producing just over 1,000 motorcycles in 1909 to manufacturing 27,000 motorcycles in 1920—the company’s Milwaukee factory experienced near-constant expansion. Construction through this relatively brief period created the buildings that today, a century later, are still the proud home of Harley-Davidson.
“Building a Milwaukee Icon” provides a snapshot of Harley-Davidson’s formative years and illustrates a chapter of Milwaukee history when the city was known as the “Machine Shop to the World.”
We invite you to explore our collaboration with three Milwaukee area museums, featuring #MilwaukeeMade exhibits. https://www.visitmilwaukee.org/milwaukee-made/

Harley-Davidson Motorcyle Exhibit

Harley-Davidson and the Motorcycle Arts Foundation Announce the Opening of Electric Revolution, the World’s First Museum Exhibit Exclusively Featuring Electric Motorcycles, opening April 6, 2019 at Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles

The Motorcycle Arts Foundation (MAF) and Harley-Davidson announced today the opening of Electric Revolution, the world’s first museum exhibition exclusively featuring electric motorcycles. This exhibit, which is supported by Harley-Davidson, will open at the Richard Varner Family Gallery at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, California on April 6, 2019. Curated by MAF co-founder Paul d’Orléans, the exhibit will explore the history and current state of the electric motorcycle and e-bike industry with 21 examples of 2-wheeled electric vehicles from both custom builders and established manufacturers.

Zero-emission vehicles have become a prominent part of the transportation landscape, and electric motorcycles and e-bikes are one of the fastest growing sectors in this quickly evolving market. The exhibit assembles a dynamic mix of production, racing, prototype and custom electric motorcycles from world renowned manufacturers and builders in the EV space including Harley-Davidson, CAKE, Specialized Bicycle Components, Roland Sands Design, Curtiss Motorcycles, Alta Motors, Joey Ruiter, and Noel Connolly. Harley-Davidson is the lead sponsor for this exhibit and has provided three recent prototypes from their electric portfolio, including the 2020 LiveWire, which will be available to the public in Fall 2019. “We are creating history with the world’s first exhibition of any type to feature two-wheeled electric vehicles exclusively,” states curator Paul d’Orléans. “The electric motorcycle industry is exploding with new players investing in an electric future, and this exhibit will showcase contemporary manufacturers as the trail blazers of the industry and pay homage to electric pioneers.”

“We are thrilled to support the Motorcycle Arts Foundation and participate in the Electric Revolution exhibition at the Petersen Automotive Museum,” states Harley-Davidson Senior Vice President of Marketing and Brand Heather Malenshek. “Harley-Davidson is at the forefront of the changing consumer landscape within motorcycles and we are excited to showcase our halo product, LiveWire, within the powerful narrative this exhibit presents to the public.” The MAF is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to the preservation and distribution of motorcycle arts. Electric Revolution will be the second major public project for the foundation. Their first exhibition project, Custom Revolution, just ended its year-long run at the Petersen Museum, and was one of the most important cultural events for motorcycles in the last 25 years. Electric Revolution is produced by the Motorcycle Arts Foundation and Sasha Tcherevkoff.

The opening night VIP and press reception will be held on April 4, 2019 from 6:30-10pm. The event will be attended by the world’s most talented builders, designers, and thought leaders in the electric vehicle industry. The evening will feature exclusive access to the new exhibition, music, food and drinks by the legendary Drago Ristorante, and a live “electrifying” panel discussion moderated by Paul d’Orléans.

“Quail Motorsports”

By Claire Pelote x Vaughn Lowery

The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering brought together automobile and motorcycle enthusiasts from around the world. The event began in 2003 in Carmel, California and is located at the Quail Lodge and Golf Club. The gathering had a limit of 5,000 people and a ticket lottery system, which is probably why it is now one of the most popular events in Monterey Car Week. Los Angeles natives drove over five hours for this event. However it was closer to San Francisco at just a little over two hours.

The exhibit area stretched the length of 1-2 football fields and at the entrance, you were handed a glass of champagne. Tickets included parking, a collectible event poster and magazine, a gourmet lunch, fine wine and speciality cocktails. Alongside the handcrafted cocktails were culinary stations throughout the exhibition.

One of the most intriguing exhibits included Infiniti and Lexus as well as the Ferrari presentation of parked cars. The Robert Graham lifestyle and apparel brand made an appearance as well. There was also a show titled The Spirit of the Mille Miglia. This highly influential event celebrated its sixteenth year on August 24, 2018 and has many more to come.

Sponsors provided luxury cars that guests were allowed to test drive on select courses. The 2018 sponsors included Rolex, Acura, BMW, Bentley, Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, Audi, Pirelli, Bonhams, Lamborghini, Infiniti, Pagani, Lexus, Bugatti, McLaren, Leonardo Helicopters, Louis Roederer Champagne, Maserati, Singer, Byton, Karma, Gunther, Generation, Delta, Koenigsegg, Genesis, Volkswagen, Hennessey, Jaguar, FlexJet, 1000 Miglia, Chubb, Weather Tech Raceway, The Club, Dell Helicopter, Sentient Jet, Burgess, Union Bank, SCG, Weather Tech, ACJ, Walter Leather Company, Meuse, Qian Kiln, Polestar, Rimac, W Motors, Thermal, SickToiz, Jet Aviation, and Tamara Mellon.

EagleRider and Harley-Davidson Alliance

EagleRider, the world’s largest motorcycle rental and travel company, and Harley-Davidson continue to make major strides in the strategic alliance between the two brands – activating more than 120 Harley-Davidson® dealerships as rental locations throughout the United States.

“After rounding the corner of an incredible first year, we are thrilled that our partnership with Harley-Davidson continues to produce great results for our industry,” said Chris McIntyre, CEO and Co-founder of EagleRider. “Our companies have been consistently delivering exciting rides for consumers through the largest connected network of motorcycle rental locations in the U.S. We look forward to bringing more dealerships on-board as our network expands.” With the large scope of rental locations, riders can begin and end their two-wheeled adventures almost anywhere in the United States.  The 150+ new locations give riders from around the world additional access to America’s most popular tourist destinations and motorcycle routes like the iconic Route 66 and Pacific Coast Highway.

Both companies are committed to helping travelers explore America in the most authentic way possible, on an iconic Harley-Davidson® motorcycle. Every EagleRider/Harley-Davidson location can set riders up with guided tours, daily rentals and Club EagleRider membership opportunities.

rough the alliance, which was announced in May 2017, EagleRider exclusively offers current model year Harley-Davidson® motorcycles for its Touring and Large Cruiser motorcycle rental segments, equipped with Harley-Davidson® Genuine Motor Parts and Accessories. Harley-Davidson works exclusively with EagleRider to provide rental, travel and tour experiences from its U.S dealership network.

Additionally, EagleRider launched an all-new program earlier this year for qualified dealers to purchase pre-owned Harley-Davidson motorcycles from EagleRider’s expansive fleet. The EagleRider Dealer Exchange, known as ERDX, is a convenient and cost-effective way for dealerships to expand their pre-owned bike offerings from a trusted source. In June, EagleRider expanded its online platform by launching the mobile application so buyers of pre-owned bikes can purchase inventory from any place at any time directly from their mobile device at value pricing.

Pirelli Leads in Original Run Flat Equipment

Pirelli has underlined its status as the preferred brand for premium and prestige car makers, proven by over 500 homologations for Run Flat tires. This is technology that allows drivers to keep going even with a puncture, so that they can reach their nearest tire dealer to change the tire. In total, there are 516 homologations of Pirelli Run Flat tires: in other words tires that have been chosen by manufacturers as original equipment for their new cars. These include 326 summer tire, 100 winter tire, and 90 all-season tire homologations. As a result, Pirelli now has more than 2800 manufacturer homologations for its product range.

Alfa Romeo is the latest marque to have homologated Pirelli Run Flat tires on its Giulia sedan. Manufacturers such as BMW, Cadillac, Dodge, Jeep, Mercedes, Mini and Rolls-Royce also use Pirelli tires that can keep going after a puncture. Even when a tire pressure monitoring system indicates a sudden loss of pressure, these tires are able to carry on driving for 50 miles at a maximum speed of 50mph. The specially-designed tire sidewall structure is capable of supporting the weight of the car, ensuring a safe journey to the nearest tire dealer. Pirelli’s bespoke Self Supporting system uses special reinforcements inserted into the sides of the internal structure that are able to withstand both the vertical and horizontal loads on the car.

Pirelli’s Run Flat technology is available on P Zero, Cinturato, Scorpion and Scorpion Winter, Winter Sottozero 3 and Winter Sottozero Serie II. Consequently, the range is able to cover 97% of fitments in 18-inch size or higher, with 24 exclusive product codes: which are sizes that no other tire manufacturer sells. Pirelli is the leader in the Run Flat sector, both when it comes to summer and all-season tires as well as winter.

Run Flat technology responds to the demands of prestige and premium car manufacturers for a level of personalization precisely tailored to the technical characteristics of their vehicles. Throughout the development process, which takes two or three years, Pirelli’s engineers work hand in hand with their counterparts at each manufacturer to create specific tires that are distinguished by a special marking on the sidewall. For each manufacturer, there is a bespoke tire – which is at the very heart of Pirelli’s perfect fit strategy.

Pirelli Celebrates 63rd Annual Porsche Parade

PIRELLI CELEBRATES THE 63RD ANNUAL PORSCHE PARADE

AND ITS LONG STANDING COMMITMENT TO PORSCHE CLUB OF AMERICA
Pirelli is proud to continue supporting the Porsche Club of America following the PCA Werks Reunion in Amelia Island earlier this year. Now, Pirelli has headed to the historic Porsche Parade in Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri. As part of its sponsorship with PCA, Pirelli kicked off festivities by hosting the Pirelli Welcome Dinner last night at the Hidden Lakes Golf Course, which is the most attended event during the weeklong program from July 8-14.

Pirelli, the world leader in the prestige tire category, develops and produces bespoke tires for both classic and contemporary Porsches: the state of the art P Zero and P Zero Trofeo tire cover the most performance oriented, while Pirelli’s Collezione in vintage sizes covers the needs of classic Porsches.

And these are the very tires that will star on the Pirelli stand at the Porsche Parade. Porsche Club members will be able to rely on the support of Pirelli technicians, who will be on hand all day to supply in-depth advice and information about Pirelli products available in America.

“Pirelli’s involvement with this historic Porsche Parade event in the US speaks volumes to our appreciation for the Porsche marque and Porsche Club of America, the biggest Porsche club in the world,” said Marco Crola, CEO of Pirelli Tire North America. “This is a natural extension of our commitment at the OE level, where we have worked tirelessly with Porsche over the years to create special N marked tires (263 homologations in fact), tailor-made specifically to be the perfect fit for Porsche vehicles. Therefore supporting PCA is paramount for us, given we share the same enthusiasm for the world’s finest automobile design and experiences as PCA’s member base. It will be great to connect even further with this community through our activities here and communicate our latest offering, from Pirelli Collezione through to P Zero and Trofeo R tires,” Crola added.

Porsche Parade is Porsche Club of America’s signature annual event, hosting its club members from all over North America for an ‘extravaganza’ of activities and competitive events (such as the Parade Concours D’Elegance), including seminars, tours and social gatherings– all aimed at socializing and enjoying Porsches.

This year’s Porsche Parade is being held at Tan-Tar-A resort in the idyllic Lake of the Ozarks, one of the largest man-made lakes in the world and the largest in the US. For more information on the Porsche Parade visit Pirelli or the official Porsche Parade website.
