U.S. dealer killed


A Harley-Davidson icon was killed in a motorcycle crash on July 30.

Dealership owner Bruce Rossmeyer was riding with five others in Wyoming when at about 11 a.m. he crashed into a pickup truck.

A Wyoming Highway Patrol officer said the pickup truck, which was towing a trailer and was travelling ahead of the group, slowed down and signalled a left turn. Four of the motorcyclists passed it, and when Rossmeyer pulled up in a passing attempt, the truck made its turn.

Rossmeyer hit the driver-side door. A sixth rider avoided a collision.

Rossmeyer founded a number of Harley dealerships as well as the Destination Daytona dealership complex, which also handles Ducati, Triumph, and Buell, and was the world’s largest Harley dealership when it opened in 2005. People get married there.

The group was heading to Sturgis, South Dakota.
