Biker Boot Camp

Harley-Davidson's girls-only Garage Parties have been so successful that The Motor Company has now launched Motorcycle Boot Camp for dudes. Billed as "basic training" for anyone interested in becoming a motor-cyclist, Boot Camp is equal parts Motorcycling 101 and Boys' Night Out. We dropped in on the inaugural event at Chicago's Wild Fire Harley-Davidson, which included not only an introductory riding lesson on stationary rollers and a hands-on demo showing how to change oil, but also bourbon tasting, cigars and straight-razor shaves for all. The best part? Boot Camps, hosted by local H-D dealers, are absolutely free! Find one near you by clicking on the "Learn To Ride" link at
