This year’s event will also be part of the Harley-Davidson Pan America Adventure Motorcycle Demo Tour, giving skeptics and fans a like a chance to test out the highly-anticipated American Adventure Tourer.

“In 2019, I first saw the new Harley-Davidson Pan America when it was previewed behind glass at the world’s largest motorcycle shows in Milan, Italy,” says Harold Olaf Cecil, Giant Loop owner/founder. “I cannot think of another new adventure motorcycle introduction in the past decade that’s generated this much buzz and interest. We are truly honored that Harley-Davidson selected our annual ride to be part of this historic roll out.”
