JAY LENO TO HOST HARLEY-DAVIDSON 90TH ANNIVERSARY REUNION

 MILWAUKEE, May 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Jay Leno, host of NBC's "Tonight Show" and long-time motorcycle enthusiast, will host Harley-Davidson, Inc.'s 90th Anniversary Reunion, held on June 12 at the Henry W. Maier Festival Park in Milwaukee.
 Leno will emcee the centerpiece event of the day-long celebration -- the 90th birthday ceremony, which will take place at 8 p.m. on the Marcus Amphitheater stage prior to a performance by ZZ Top. The birthday ceremony also will be broadcast live to each of the park's other stages.
 More than 60,000 motorcyclists will gather for The Reunion, to pay tribute to Harley-Davidson and raise money for the company's charity of choice, the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA).
 The festivities begin with The Reunion Ride for MDA, in which motorcyclists from all over the continent will head toward Milwaukee as part of 10 simultaneous, fund-raising rides. Each route has a number of stopover cities along the way, allowing local riders a starting point and MDA officials an opportunity to greet and thank the riders. An executive from Harley-Davidson will host each leg of the ride, leading the motorcyclists cross-country to The Reunion celebration.
 The Reunion will feature a variety of activities for both Harley-
Davidson motorcycle owners and the general public. In addition to the


ZZ Top concert, comedienne Judy Tenuta and musical groups REO Speedwagon, Little Feat, The Marshall Tucker Band and Big Guitars from Memphis are scheduled to perform.
 More than 30 restaurants will be operating from booths on the grounds, providing a diverse selection for those in attendance. Visitors seeking more than food and entertainment will find a wide variety of displays, including motorcycle exhibits with limited-edition 90th Anniversary and antique Harley-Davidson motorcycles, Easyriders magazine's land-speed-record-holding motorcycle and ZZ Top's custom HogZZilla Harley-Davidsons.
