Washington Harley-Davison Celebrates the Iron Elite – 2016

Harley-Davidson (HD) introduced their Iron Elite outreach initiative in 2010 as a means of recognizing and celebrating the rich heritage and contributions African-Americans Riders have made within the motorcycle community.

Dealerships throughout the nation, unfortunately, were slow to adopt and embrace this outreach effort. However, where others were hesitant, others boldly and courageously embraced this effort recognizing the many facets that make up the Harley-Davidson family of Riders and HD’s outreach consisting of Harlistas, Soldier Stories, No Cages, and #Sterotypical to name a few.

Harley-Davidson of Washington, DC​ under the ownership of Mr. Thomas Moorehead and Mr. Lowell Duckett (Tank) at the helm as the General Manager is one of those dealerships to step up and out with recognizing and celebrating H-D’s Iron Elite movement successfully as evidenced with the dealership overflowing with Riders on all brands and styles coming out to enjoy and support despite a cloudy and dreary day in the DMV full of events.

The day’s activities consisted of music, food and vendors along with a performance workshops and fashion show featuring customers from kiddies to adults doing their thing on the showroom’s cat walk. Providing the live music entertainment was DC’s own Go-Go leader Familiar Faces while ATL’s Big Cell of Fast Harleys Only rocked the mic mc’ing the custom bike and sound contest hosted by Uptown Motorsports with more than $2k awarded in prizes and cash including raffle prizes provided by Bagger Boyz.
