I'm a fan of Harleys -- those machines are sexy Americana to me. Their riders symbolize a bit of the wild west, live-free-or-die attitude that's so much a part of my quirky Tucson.
I'm happy that the Arizona State Hog Rally is being held in downtown Tucson again this year. It's a great weekend event -- The lineup of bikes and people along Congress is incredible. There's a lot pride among the riders and so much camaraderie. They're a welcoming group, too - they don't mind sharing stories or allowing a photo to be taken.
Go downtown and take a look. Tip your hat to a great American brand -- Harley-Davidson -- and to the people who support it. The scene is fun and and it's a great slice of funky life in our Tucson.
