From his first Harley Model 165 to his beloved 1956 Pepper Red Harley-Davidson KH, there is no denying that Elvis Presley loved motorcycles, and May 31 “ June 2, Elvis Presleys Graceland will host its first-ever ˜King of the Street Bike Weekend at Graceland to bring motorcycle enthusiasts and Elvis fans together for an incredible experience. Throughout the weekend, guests can experience activities celebrating the power and passion of the riding life, including a panel with renowned Harley-Davidson retailer and enthusiast, Tim Bumpus, a photo opportunity with their bikes in front of the iconic Graceland mansion and two incredible rides highlighting the places Elvis loved to ride and visit, as well as other famed Memphis locations. Guests will also be among the first to experience the brand-new Graceland Exhibition Center (Opening May 2019) featuring the debut A Century of the American Motorcycle exhibit, which features a one-of-a-kind collection classic bikes curated by the legendary Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum.
If youve ever seen the ˜Presley Cycles exhibit in Elvis Presleys Memphis, its obvious Elvis had a love for all things on two wheels, and were excited to recapture that same passion that comes with riding life, said Debbie Miller, CMO of Elvis Presley Enterprises.
