Practice underway ahead of Harley-Davidson’s Bradford Beach Brawl
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) – Motorcycle enthusiasts hit the sand on Friday to practice for the Bradford Beach Brawl as part of Harley-Davidson’s 115th anniversary celebrations.
It’s the first time in 100 years that people could come out and see motorcycle sand racing along Lake Michigan’s shoreline. Riders on vintage and new bikes are participating.
“This is a first for me watching them run on the sand,” Jim Hicks of Knoxville, Tennessee said. “Veering back and forth, it’s really interesting to see it.”
The event is free and open to the public. Practice on Friday lasts until 7 p.m. The competitive racing begins Saturday at noon.
