Harley-Davidson has announced the extension of free Riding Academy motorcycle training to all current and former U.S. military as well as first responders. The program is now available to active-duty, retired, reservists, veterans, police, firefighters, and EMS Jan. 1-Dec. 31, 2016.

The original offer of free Harley-Davidson Riding Academy kicked-off prior to Armed Forces Day aboard the USS Yorktown aircraft carrier in Charleston, S.C., making it only fitting to take to the air to announce the free training extension.

All stateside military can take advantage of the offer by visiting a local Harley-Davidson dealer or going to h-d.com/AmericanHeroes. If Riding Academy is not available in a particular area, Harley-Davidson will reimburse the expense of attending a certified motorcycle safety program. Those currently deployed outside the U.S. also can submit the form by Dec. 31, 2016, and will receive a voucher for free motorcycle safety training, good through 2017 when they return home.

OPERATION PERSONAL FREEDOM

Along with this announcement of free Riding Academy training for all current and former U.S. military, Harley-Davidson announced last November a new alliance with Wounded Warrior Project that focused on helping improve the lives of service men and women living with Post-traumatic Stress Disorder. Additionally through the program, Harley-Davidson expanded its Operation Personal Freedom MotorClothes collection with 10 percent of the proceeds supporting WWP’s efforts. Finally, dealer events across the country will focus on welcoming and celebrating our military heroes.

To date, Harley-Davidson has donated more than $1 million to support those who serve through fundraising initiatives, the Harley-Davidson Foundation and the Operation Personal Freedom MotorClothes collection.

To unveil the Ride Free offer for police officers, firefighters and EMS professionals, Harley-Davidson employees across the country volunteered at local firehouses and police stations in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Kansas City, Missouri, Milwaukee, San Diego, Wichita, Kansas and York, Pennsylvania. At the events, employees washed police motorcycles and fire trucks and served lunch to first responders.
