Article by Christian A., on November 28, 2010

Harley-Davidson, an American motorcycle manufacturer, says that it has joined forces with Bikes Over Baghdad (BOB) to thank the 50,000 U.S. and Coalition Armed Forces stationed in the Middle East. From November 28 to December 9, the U.S. troops will witness seven challenging action sports performances at military bases in Kuwait and Iraq.

BOB is a BMX exhibition comprised of action sports athletes, ramp builders and announcers, including Brian Kachinsky, Chad Kagy, Anthony Napolitan, Mike Escamilla, Zach Yankush, Drew Bezanson, Ron Kimler, Mykel Larrin, and Nate Wessel.

Harley-Davidson's director of core customer marketing, Mike McCann, who will be part of the tour, will hand out free Harley-Davison MotorClothes and other gifts and merchandise at each performance.

One service member will be fortunate enough to win a brand new 2011 Harley-Davidson XR1200X motorcycle! McCann says that Harley-Davidson shares with the U.S. Armed Forces a sense of freedom and patriotism. He professes gratitude for the Armed Forces' dedication, sacrifices, and hard work.

Brian Kachinsky, an X Games bronze medalist who joined the first two BOB tours, says BOB wants to show the troops that it cares. He adds that BOB should be thanking the troops as they are the real heroes!

"Harley-Davidson shares a deep sense of freedom and patriotism with the U.S. Armed Forces, and we are grateful for their many sacrifices, dedication and hard work," said Mike McCann, director of core customer marketing at Harley-Davidson. "We have a long-standing relationship with the U.S. Military, and teaming up with Bikes Over Baghdad is a great way to show our appreciation. We are honored and excited to be part of this tour."
