MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The National Governors Association will meet in Milwaukee in early August – and Governor Scott Walker wants his fellow state leaders to join him for a Harley ride.
The Republican Walker has invited other governors to take training courses on Harley-Davidson motorcycles. He says a few have taken him up on it – and two governors who are already bikers will join him on the open road.
Walker is a well-experienced motorcyclist. When he was the Milwaukee County executive, Walker toured the state on a Harley each year to promote the county’s attractions.
The national governors’ meeting is set for August 2nd through 4th. It’s the first to be hosted by Wisconsin since 1998.
The group includes all 50 governors. They’ll also take batting practice at Miller Park before the Milwaukee Brewers play the Washington Nationals.
