Harley employee crashes into fence

April 27, 2010

A Harley-Davidson employee crashed into a fence while test driving a motorcycle in the company's parking lot.

According to the Wauwatosa police report:

The 57-year-old woman was a new rider practicing motorcycle maneuvers and skills in the employee parking lot, 11700 W. Capitol Drive, at 3:47 p.m. April 18. She noticed the throttle was sticking, so she turned it harder. The bike lurched forward, and she drove into a chainlink fence.

She was taken to Froedtert Hospital, where she was checked for facial injuries and head and arm pain, then released. The bike had severe front-end damage.
