WLA turns 75

Old Bike Australasia - - BUZZ BOX -

Whilst the model be­gan a few years ear­lier, 1942 is the year syn­ony­mous with the Har­ley-Davidson WLA, and 2017 marks three-quar­ters of a cen­tury since that date. Known as ‘The Lib­er­a­tor’, the WLA, in both mil­i­tary and post­war civil­ian guise, gave many their start in mo­tor­cy­cling. Plans are well un­der way to cel­e­brate this mile­stone, the high­light be­ing a 75th An­niver­sary Com­mem­o­ra­tive Ride. Or­gan­iser Ken­dal Moroney says, “There aim is to bring to­gether as many 42WLAs – mil­i­tary, civil­ian, bobbed and chopped – as we can. We all have one com­mon in­ter­est; to ride, and en­joy each other’s en­thu­si­asm and in­ter­est in the Har­ley-Davidson mo­tor­cy­cle fam­ily. The planned event will be a week­ender, rid­ing over some great NSW/ACT roads. There will also be some or­ga­nized ac­tiv­i­ties along the way and time to en­joy sto­ries over a meal and bev­er­age or two, but we do need your help. This an­niver­sary can­not hap­pen with­out your par­tic­i­pa­tion. The theme of the event will be all things “Walla” with all styles wel­come to at­tend. The event will be held from 27-29 Oc­to­ber, 2017, com­menc­ing in Al­bury, NSW and mov­ing to Young, NSW, with the fi­nal wrap up in Can­berra ACT.
