1 Million Mile Harley Davidson
On April 4th, 2009, Dave Zien went down in the history books as he rode his Harley Davidson past the 1 Million Mile mark on the odometer. It took the former Wisconsin Senator and Vietnam Vet 18 years to do it, but he did it.
150 rear tires, 65 front tires, 13 seats and 10 engine rebuilds later.
His was the first Harley Davidson to hit the 1 million mile mark.
I have spent most of my life on and around motorcycles. Getting my first bike at 15 I was hooked. I was a professional motorcycle mechanic for 10 years. Most of my time is spent riding, working on, or reading about motorcycles. I am always looking for parts, bike deals, and a good woman. I doubt I will find the later.
