From his first Harley Model 165 to his beloved 1956 Pepper Red Harley-Davidson KH, Elvis Presley loved buying and riding motorcycles. On May 31 – June 2, Elvis Presley’s Graceland will host its first ‘King of the Street Bike Weekend at Graceland.’
“If you’ve ever seen the ‘Presley Cycles’ exhibit in Elvis Presley’s Memphis, it’s obvious Elvis had a love for all things on two wheels, and we’re excited to recapture that same passion that comes with riding life,” said Debbie Miller, CMO of Elvis Presley Enterprises.
The idea aside – from making a buck- is to bring motorcycle enthusiasts and Elvis fans together for an “incredible experience.”
Throughout the weekend, guests can experience activities celebrating the riding life, including a panel with renowned Harley-Davidson retailer and enthusiast, Tim Bumpus, a photo opportunity with their bikes in front of the iconic Graceland mansion and two rides highlighting the places Elvis loved to ride and visit, as well as other famed Memphis locations.
King of the Street Bike Weekend at Graceland will also have the GRAMMY nominated Christian-metal band STRYPER live in concert on Sunday, June 2, at the Soundstage at Graceland. The band’s visit to Graceland is part of their recently announced 2019 HISTORY Tour — Greatest Hits & Covers.
Guests will also be among the first to experience the brand-new Graceland Exhibition Center (Opening May 2019) featuring the debut A Century of the American Motorcycle exhibit, which features a one-of-a-kind collection classic bikes curated by the legendary Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum.
