According to a press release from The Motor Company, Harley-Davidson is the first motorcycle manufacturer to be "affiliated with NCADD". The NCADD Board is comprised of representatives from Miller Brewing Company, Anheuser-Busch, Toyota, Ford and now Harley-Davidson.<BR><BR>The NCADD is a non-profit organization based in Washington, D.C. that succeeded the Presidential Commission on Drunk Driving established by Ronald Reagan in 1982.<BR><BR>"Driving a motorcycle, or any vehicle, while intoxicated is extremely dangerous," Hoelter is quoted in the release as saying. "Motorcycle riding requires balance, motor skills, awareness and concentration, all things that are missing or dulled when riding impaired. Harley-Davidson's role with NCADD will be to continue raising awareness and working to reduce impaired riding."<BR>
