China's Easy Riders - 14 May 2013
Images from China where around 1,000 Harley Davidson enthusiasts celebrated the 5th Harley Davidson National Rally in China, as part of the company’s 110-year anniversary.

Harley Davidson motorbikes are considered by Chinese tax authorities to be luxury items, so they are taxed at extremely high
rates – sometimes the tax alone is equivalent to the bike’s U.S. price tag. Traffic and transportation authorities have also placed
Harleys in the same category as electric bikes, horses and bicycles – they cannot be on highways and major avenues.
