Har­ley and pros

KEVIN Magee has never throt­tled back on his ex­u­ber­ance, so the for­mer 500cc world cham­pi­onship racer was an ob­vi­ous choice for Har­leyDavid­son’s ‘‘Rev Up Your Wild Side’’ photo shoot.

Magee was known as the Hor­sham Hur­ri­cane in his racing days and re­mains flat out to­day as a mo­tor­cy­cle com­men­ta­tor for Fox­tel. He is the only rider to have won a race in three world cham­pi­onship classes in the same year.

He and a host of our top sports stars, in­clud­ing NRL stars Craig Wing and Wil­lie Ma­son, Hock­ey­roo Nikki Hud­son, V8 Su­per­car driver James Court­ney and Wal­la­bies cap­tain Stir­ling Mort­lock, have all taken to Har­leys as a good cause.

The re­sult­ing col­lec­tion of stylised black and white im­ages will be auc­tioned later this year to raise funds for the Prostate Can­cer Foun­da­tion of Aus­tralia.

‘‘The world over, Har­ley-David­son has come to epit­o­mise free spirit and in­di­vid­u­al­ism,’’ Har­ley-David­son Aus­tralia mar­ket­ing man­ager Adrian O’Donoughue says.
