Viking Land Harley-Davidson in Baxter Donates Motorcycles to CLC


RAMSEY COUNTY MEDICAL EXAMINER’S OFFICE.>>>THE VIKING LAND HARLEY DAVIDSON DEALERSHIP IN BAXTER HAS DONATED EIGHT MOTORCYCLES TO CENTRAL LAKES COLLEGE. THE DONATION WAS MADE FOR STUDENTS IN THE MARINE AND POWERSPORTS PROGRAM AND TO ALSO MAKE PROGRESS IN A POSSIBLE CERTIFICATION COURSE. HARLEY DAVIDSON IS LOOKING FOR MORE LOCALLY TRAINED TECHNICIANS AS THE TWO MAIN TRAINING CENTERS ARE LOCATED IN SOUTHERN UNITED STATES. WHEN TECHNICIANS COME TO MINNESOTA AFTER COMPLETING THEIR TRAINING, NOT MANY STICK AROUND DUE TO THE COLD WEATHER. CURRENTLY CENTRAL LAKES COLLEGE DOES NOT HAVE A HARLEY DAVIDSON CERTIFICATION COURSE. HOWEVER, WITH THE ADDITION OF THE DONATED BIKES, CLC IS NOW ONE STEP CLOSER TO HAVING THAT COURSE.>>THE DONATION ALSO GIVES US ACCESS TO ADDITIONAL FUNDING TO BUY NEW EQUIPMENT THROUGH THE LEGISLATIVE — OR LEVERAGED EQUIPMENT PROGRAM FROM THE MINNESOTA STATE LEGISLATURE. THERE’S REALLY SOME ADDITIONAL OPPORTUNITIES FOR US TO BE ABLE TO WORK WITH OUR INDUSTRY PARTNERS AND MAKE SOMETHING STRETCH, WHERE IT IS NOT JUST THE ONE DONATION, BUT IT HAS A RIPPLE EFFECT INTO THE OPERATIONS FOR OUR PROGRAMS AND FOR OUR STUDENTS.>>OUR STUDENTS WILL BE TAKING THESE HARLEY DAVIDSONS APART, LEARNING HOW ENGINES WORK, HOW THE DIFFERENT PARTS GO TOGETHER AND HOW THEY INTERACT WITH EACH OTHER, HOW TO READ SERVICE MANUALS WITH THEM, BASICALLY TO BECOME A HARLEY DAVIDSON TECHNICIAN.>>WE ARE DOING THIS TO TRY TO GIVE PEOPLE WHETHER THEY ARE YOUNG OR OLD PEOPLE OR MEN OR WOMEN, DOESN’T MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE, GIVING THEM AT LEAST A WAY TO ACCESS A GOOD HONEST SKILL THAT THEY CAN APPLY FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIVES. AND I THINK IT IS NICE TO GIVE SOMETHING BACK.>>THE EIGHT MOTORCYCLES THAT WERE DONATED BY DAN WALTON AND VIKING LAND HARLEY DAVIDSON ARE
