1903 – 2023 or 120 years of American motorcycles! How not to celebrate them with the right rock accompaniment? The mega birthday party that Harley-Davidson is organizing to properly celebrate the 120th milestone promises to be unforgettable. A great show will be staged on the Milwaukee lakefront for theHarley-Davidson Homecoming Festival in his hometown. In the last few hours have been announced as headliner i Green Day e i Foo Fighters and they aren’t the only big rockers in attendance from 13 to 16 July coming.

Veterans Park will also host a family-friendly festival that includes music, entertainment, activities and a variety of dining options. There is no doubt that in addition to the great attraction for HD party, also the fact of being able to see Foo Fighters back on stage with the new lineup it will be a great emotion after the farewell to the drummer Taylor Hawkins. Forever Dave Grohl he is a great motorcycle enthusiast and Harley-Davidson in particular, so much so that years ago he also recorded a video that we are reproducing below.
A passion that the Foos share with Green Day. Even Billy Joe and his companions are fans of mother Harley’s V-Twins.
