Harley-Davidson/Share the road license plate

When you purchase special Harley-Davidson/Share the Road license plates, your fees include an annual $25 donation that provides funds for motorcycle, moped and motor bicycle safety programs and activities administered by the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT).

The Harley-Davidson/Share the Road license plate was designed in collaboration with the Harley-Davidson Motor Company Styling Team. These special license plates display the words "Share the Road" to emphasize the importance of driver awareness to ensure safety among motorcycles and other motorized vehicles. Your annual donation will fund:

  • Grants for providing motorcycle safety training courses
  • Evaluation of basic rider education courses
  • Public workshops, rallies and programs focused on motorcycle safety and training

Visit motorcycle safety​ for safety program information. Harley-Davidson receives no financial benefit from the sale of these plates.
