Roy Rogers, 1958 magazine cover photo on a Harley, and an Indian in 1946

Roy Rogers rode out to Hollywood in the early 30’s on a motorcycle when times were bad and transportation costs were high. He took a liking to the sport, riding his Indian until World War II. Out of the saddle for 16 years his last bike was a 74 cubic inch Harley-Davidson.

and he didn't play favorites it seems, not only did he advertise for Harley and Indian, he also advertised for Honda and Nissan

It's too bad he lived so long before me, I'd have liked to have met him. I bet he was one hell of a nice guy.

Thanks Steve!
