FOX6 talked with a lot of people about what Harley means to them. One couple actually met online, and bonded through their love of Harley-Davidson motorcycles. Fast forward a couple of years, they're married, and wanted to celebrate the bikes together in the birthplace of Harley.

"I've always loved Harleys. I haven't ridden forever for the last eight years, so it was always kind of a romantic feeling for me, and so since this is the home of Harley, we decided to come up for the 115th anniversary," said Nora Kleckner from Illinois.
