Buffalo Bike Blast Attracted Thousands of Harley Riders

By Mark Wozniak

Buffalo, NY – Thousands of Harley-Davidson fans headed west Monday, after a weekend of partying and blues at the two-day Buffalo Bike Blast.

Their eventual destination is Milwaukee, the home of Harley-Davidson, and up to a million people could congregate there for the company's centennial celebration that starts Wednesday.

Organizers and police were both impressed by the lack of trouble at the weekend's events.

Deputy County Executive Carl Calabrese described it as a "spectacular event."
