The Reading / Listening - Harley-Davidson - Level 0

There is a good job for people who love motorbikes and summer. The motorcycle maker Harley-Davidson wants eight people to ride its bikes across the USA. It is to celebrate 115 years of the company. The eight people will get training. They must share their Harley-Davidson experiences on social media.



Harley-Davidson's boss said the company wants to grow the sport of motorcycling. He wants the eight riders to help. He said: "I'm looking forward to following their journeys [and] learning about their experiences." The eight people must be good storytellers. To apply for the job, they have to describe what freedom means.
