Harley-Davidson has today launched a European wide search to find one passionate motorcycle rider willing to take on a two-month expenses-paid trip through Europe, aboard a Street Glide™ motorcycle. The chosen adventurer will be paid €25,000 and get to keep the bike as well as a collection of great memories from the experience.
It may sound like a dream, but this is a real job offer from iconic motorcycle manufacturer, Harley-Davidson, as it launches the ‘Discover More’ initiative, set to be headed-up by one chosen motorcycle adventurer who will embark on the greatest ride of their life.
Starting this summer, the lucky winner will be required to plan and star in their own road trip adventure, travelling through more than 20 European countries, seeking out the best riding roads in Europe and sharing their experiences through social media and a dedicated website. After a month of preparation and planning, the lucky rider – accompanied every step of the way by a dedicated professional film crew – will travel for two months to document this amazing riding experience.
The chosen rider will start the trip in May 2015. All candidates are encouraged to apply at www.h-d.com/riderwanted and explain why they should be the rider to take on this incredible journey. Closing date for applications is Friday 20 March 2015. The chosen rider will be announced in April, and the planning for this once-in-a-lifetime road trip can begin.
All prospective riders must have a valid European Union passport, a full motorcycle licence, and most importantly, the passion for telling a story that inspires others to consider a similar adventure.
“Last year’s Discover More was a trial run for the 2015 real deal – selecting a single ambassador to show the world just what an incredible experience a trip like this on a Harley can be,” said Harley-Davidson EMEA Marketing Director Mike Johnstone. “Discover More is designed to show how riding the best roads in Europe on a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle is one of the most incredible things anyone can do in a lifetime – and we want to inspire other riders to experience the magic that comes with touring on a Harley®.”[button link=”http://harley-davidsonpressoffice.cmail2.com/t/y-l-ihkljjk-jiqihdjki-j/” type=”big” color=”red” newwindow=”yes”] APPLY HERE[/button]
Getting involved in Discover More
Later this year, Harley-Davidson will give riders across Europe, the Middle East and Africa the chance to upload content and share highlights from their own rides with fellow touring enthusiasts. An online community created by riders for riders, whatever bike you ride, will allow travelling motorcyclists across the region to research and discover interesting roads and places local to them when out on the road.
