Roland Communications in association with the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and a collection of Southern California Harley-Davidson dealerships held a rally this past October in Simi Valley, California.


California Harley owner Mark Ruffalo teamed up with the dealerships he “parties with”; Anaheim-Fullerton, Antelope Valley, Barger and Pomona Valley Harley dealer to create the ride-in rally.


Dampened by coastal fog and rain, but not quelled, the limited audience of 500 riders and VIPS enjoyed the sounds of the United Blues Band, raffle give-aways, and enjoyed an all-u-can-eat “Presidential BBQ” tri-tip luncheon and free reign of the Library and special collection of motorcycles on display within when they wanted to escape the unseasonable chilly air.
