This touchscreen interactive simulates the decisions and resulting experience of a rider in 1928 as he/she attempts to climb a hill on a customized Harley-Davidson motorcycle.

Belle & Wissell collaborated with the Harley-Davidson Museum to empower museum visitors to enjoy a game-like challenge while learning about speed, torque, and traction along the way.

Users can select a hill to conquer, choose an appropriate sprocket for that terrain, and then control the throttle as the bike races up the hill.

Belle & Wissell team member Seb Chevrel programmed a real-time physics engine to ensure that every hill climb attempt is unique and rewarding.

Project Accolades:

The Today Show “Harley-Davidson Museum Preview with Tiki Barber,” 2008
Los Angeles Times “Harley-Davidson Museum is hog heaven,” 2008
MSNBC “Harley-Davidson revs up for museum’s opening,” 2008
