If being around bikers, Harleys and typical Americana is your thing; head down to the HD Bikers Restaurant at the waterfront. The owner, Mr. Chang, former Secretary of the Taiwan Harley Davidson Association, is well versed in these motorcycles, which are the epitome of American freedom and the open road. His insight, passion and experiences at the Las Vegas Bikers Rally add to the authenticity of this establishment. Since he dreams of cruising into the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in South Dakota one day, a large photo of Sturgis' jam-packed main street covers the back wall. Other Harley paraphernalia and various Americana bedeck the place, creating a relative feel of a bikers' bar. A collection of nearly twenty US license plates, images of Harleys and Indian motorcycles, and photos of James Dean and Dennis Rodman on their "hogs" all lend to the unique atmosphere.

Even the outdoor tables are adorned with pictures of classic Harleys, so while you enjoy your meal or a beer from their bilingual menu, you are reminded of the restaurant's theme. The Beef Patty with Red Wine Sauce is like the meatloaf mom used to make (NT$180 with fries), and the NT$150 Cheese Bacon Bagel is worth a try with one of the beers that range between NT$100-NT$150. You can also mosey up to the recently renovated dark-wood bar or lounge in the booth seating upstairs.
If you are a fan of Harley Davidson bikes, you can also shop for accessories and parts, as well as authentic HD leather jackets, belts and wallets. Or you can stop by just to see the attention-drawing Harleys displayed inside. With only around 200 in Taiwan, in part due to a 48% tariff, they are hard to come by and help make this place quite different than any other establishment in Kaohsiung.
