Montreal’s motorcycling community was dealt a blow this week with the news of the death of Duc Dufour, president of Harley-Davidson Montreal.
Dufour founded the city’s HOG chapter, as well as the Show Harley, a combination motorcycle presentation and rock show held in Montreal every February. He also conceived the Lowboy in 1983, an in-house custom motorcycle that influenced Harley-Davidson to design the Fat Boy in 1990.
The fatal accident occurred in Labrador on Wednesday morning and according to sources, Dufour was riding his motorcycle when he collided with a bicyclist in visibility obscured by dust thrown up by a passing truck. The accident took place at the 170-km mile marker of the Trans-Labrador Highway, according to the Telegram.
