Elvis and his motorcycles



Here he is, the King and his motorcycles. I am a fan of his songs and his bikes. It is known that Elvis liked riding and he has owned a lot of bikes through the years. His first was a Harley-Davidson model 165. He learned to ride on that and then success came. Heartbreak Hotel hit the roof and Elvis moved to the Harley-Davidson KH, equipped with a wind-shield and  buddy seat. He has appeared on the cover of The Enthusiast magazine(May, 1956), with the KH. It now belongs to the Harley-Davidson museum, along with all the accessories. His next bike was a big twin, a 1957 Harley-Davidson FLH Hydra-Glide,  that he bought when he made some serious money. This bike, along with the accessories Elvis chose at the time, is now replicated and is sold in limited numbers. After that he had a lot of bikes(trikes included), and there are a lot of pictures of him riding with his buddies in his private life. And girlfriends of course… 
   
He also loved cars…..I am sure you can read all about it in a non biker blog/site.
