Harley-Davidson ambassadors Danielle Cormack, Josh Kronfeld, Caroline Buchanan (AUS), and Jay Reeve will join hundreds of riders and pillions as they descend into scenic Queenstown, New Zealand for the Harley-Davidson Iron Run Friday, March 17th – Saturday, March 18th 2017.

Queenstown residents and visitors are invited to join motorcycle enthusiasts for two days of free entertainment in and around town.
