MILWAUKEE (February 7, 2008) - Engines will be revving and the fun will be firing on all cylinders as Harley-Davidson Motor Company celebrates its fifth year supporting "Black Bikers in the Park" at Daisy Stocking Park in Daytona Beach. Activities scheduled at the Harley-Davidson Experience include a fashion show, Women's Rider's Edge Seminars, product displays and even a temporary tattoo parlor for kids. An added attraction is Harley-Davidson's "Hot Model" competition that is sure to rev up onlookers.
Harley-Davidson's "Hot Model" competition is a fun event where contestants first attend a casting call (March 4-6). Once participants are selected from the casting call, they will "compete for a spot" (March 6) in the Harley-Davidson Fashion show (March 7). Two models will be selected (one male and one female) to win a chance to compete in the big competition at Harley-Davidson's 105th Anniversary celebration in August. Winners will be flown to Milwaukee where they will compete with other finalists from various events Harley-Davidson will participate in throughout the year such as National Bikers Roundup, West Coast Roundup, LAMA Domestic Rally, and Black Bike Week. Two winners will be selected in Milwaukee where they will win prizes and the opportunity to be featured in Harley-Davidson's 2009 MotorClothes catalogue.
"We are looking forward to another successful year as we interact with the many Harley-Davidson owners and enthusiasts during Black Bikers in the Park," states Lynn Bonner, Market Outreach Director, Harley-Davidson. "We take great pride in supporting the African American motorcycle community. Hosting the Harley-Davidson "Hot Model" competition gives us the opportunity to showcase the uniqueness and style African Americans bring to the world of fashion and motorcycling."
