Ooops! What Happened?
According to the website, Wauwatosa Now a Harley-Davidson employee crashed the motorcycle she was learning to ride into a fence in the employee parking lot at the Capitol Drive facility today. The police report said the 57 year old employee was a new rider and was practicing maneuvers in the parking lot when she noticed the throttle was sticking (probably the throttle lock was engaged) and twisted it hard thinking that would loosen it up. Unfortunately the bike surged forward and she struck a chain link fence. The employee was treated at local hospital and released. The bike was said to have suffered “extensive” front end damage.
