Combination, and such Business Combination shall require only such affirmative vote as is required by law, any other provision of these Restated Articles of Incorporation or any agreement with any national securities exchange, if, in the case of a Business Combination that does not involve any cash or other consideration being received by the shareholders of the Corporation, solely in their respective capacities as shareholders of the Corporation, the condition specified in the following paragraph (i) is met, or, in the case of any other Business Combination, the conditions specified in either of the following paragraphs (i) and (ii) are met:

(i) The Business Combination shall have been approved by a majority of the Disinterested Directors (as hereinafter defined).

(ii) Each of the five conditions specified in the following subparagraphs (A) through (E) shall have been met:

(A) The aggregate amount of the cash and the Fair Market Value (as hereinafter defined) as of the date of consummation of the Business Combination of consideration other than cash to be received per share by holders of each class of Voting Stock in such Business Combination shall be at least equal to the higher of the following:

(D) After such Interested Shareholder has become an Interested Shareholder, such Interested Shareholder shall not have received the benefit, directly or indirectly (except proportionately as a shareholder), of any loans, advances, guarantees, pledges or other financial assistance or any tax credits or other tax advantages provided by the Corporation, whether in anticipation of or in connection with such Business Combination or otherwise.

(a) BOARD OF DIRECTORS.

The authorized number of directors of the Corporation which shall constitute the entire Board of Directors shall be such as from time to time shall be determined by a majority of the then authorized number of directors, but in no case shall the authorized number of directors be less than six nor more than fifteen. Until the annual meeting of shareholders of the Corporation held in 2010, the directors shall be divided with respect to the time for which they severally hold office into three classes, as nearly equal in number as possible (but with not less than two directors in each class), as determined by the Board of Directors, with the members of each class to hold office until their successors have been elected and qualified. At each annual meeting of shareholders prior to the annual meeting of shareholders of the Corporation held in 2010, the successors of the members of the class of directors whose term expires at that meeting shall be elected to hold office for a term expiring at the annual meeting of shareholders held in the third year following the year of their election. Commencing with the annual meeting of shareholders of the Corporation held in 2010, directors shall hold office for terms as follows: (i) at the 2010 annual meeting of shareholders, directors for whom such annual meeting is the annual meeting of shareholders held in the third year following the year of their election (or such directors’ successors) shall be elected to hold office for a term expiring at the next annual meeting of shareholders and until their successors have been elected and qualified, (ii) at the 2011 annual meeting of shareholders, directors for whom such annual meeting is the annual meeting of shareholders held in the third year following the year of their election and directors elected at the 2010 annual meeting of shareholders (or such directors’ successors) shall be elected to hold office for a term expiring at the next annual meeting of shareholders and until their successors have been elected and qualified, and (iii) at the 2012 annual meeting of shareholders and each annual meeting of shareholders thereafter, all directors shall be elected to hold office for a term expiring at the next annual meeting of shareholders and until their successors have been elected and qualified. No decrease in the number of directors constituting the Board of Directors shall shorten the term of any incumbent director.

(ii) REMOVAL. Any director may be removed from office by the shareholders, but only for cause and only by the affirmative vote of a majority of the votes then entitled to be cast in an election of directors.

(iii) VACANCIES. Any vacancy occurring in the Board of Directors, including, but not limited to, a vacancy created by an increase in the number of directors or the removal of a director, shall be filled only by the affirmative vote of a majority of the directors then in office, even if such majority is less than a quorum of the Board of Directors, or by a sole remaining director. If no director remains in office, any vacancy may be filled by the shareholders. Any director elected to fill a vacancy prior to the annual meeting of shareholders of the Corporation held in 2010 shall serve until the next election of the class for which such director shall have been chosen. Any director elected to fill a vacancy after the annual meeting of shareholders of the Corporation held in 2010 shall serve until the next annual meeting of shareholders, except that any director who is replacing a director who was in the course of serving a three-year term shall serve for the remainder of the predecessor’s term.

(b) NOMINATIONS AND QUALIFICATIONS OF DIRECTORS. Nominations for the election of directors may be made by the Board of Directors or a committee appointed by the Board of Directors or by any shareholder entitled to vote generally in the election of directors. However, any shareholder entitled to vote generally in the election of directors may nominate one or more persons for election as directors at a meeting only if written notice of such shareholder’s intent to make such nominations has been given, either by personal delivery or by United States mail, postage prepaid, to the Secretary of the Corporation not later than (i) with respect to an election to be held at an annual meeting of shareholders, 60 calendar days in advance of the date in the current fiscal year of the Corporation corresponding to the date the Corporation released its proxy statement to shareholders in connection with the annual meeting for the immediately preceding year and (ii) with respect to an election to be held at a special meeting of shareholders for the election of directors, the close of business on the seventh day following the date on which notice of such meeting is first given to shareholders. Each such notice shall set forth: (A) the name and address of the shareholder who intends to make the nomination and of the person or persons to be nominated, (B) a representation that the shareholder is entitled to vote at such meeting and intends to appear in person or by proxy at the meeting to nominate the person or persons specified in the notice, (C) a description of all arrangements or understandings between the shareholder and each nominee and any other person or persons (naming such person or persons) pursuant to which the nomination or nominations are to be made by the shareholder, (D) such other information regarding each nominee proposed by such shareholder as would be required to be included in a proxy statement filed pursuant to the then current proxy rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission, if the nominee were to be nominated by the Board and (E) the consent of each nominee to serve as a director of the Corporation if so elected. The chairman of the meeting may refuse to acknowledge the nomination of any person not made in compliance with the foregoing procedure. The directors shall be at least twenty-one years of age.

ARTICLE VII

The shareholders shall not be entitled to take action without a meeting by less than unanimous consent. Except as otherwise required by law and subject to the express rights of the holders of any class or series of stock having a preference over the Common Stock as to dividends or upon liquidation, annual and special meetings of the shareholders shall be called, the record date or dates shall be determined and notice shall be sent as set forth in the By-laws of the Corporation. Notwithstanding any other provisions of these Restated Articles of Incorporation or the By-laws of the Corporation (and notwithstanding the fact that a lesser affirmative vote may be specified by law), the affirmative vote of shareholders possessing at least eighty percent of the voting power of the then outstanding shares of all classes of stock of the Corporation generally possessing voting rights in elections of directors, considered for this purpose as one class, shall be required to amend, alter, change or repeal, or to adopt any provision inconsistent with, sections 1.02, 1.04 and 1.05 of Article I of the By-laws, or this ARTICLE VII or any provision thereof or hereof; provided, however, that the Board of Directors, may amend, alter, change or repeal, or adopt any provision inconsistent with, sections 1.02, 1.04 and 1.05 of Article I of the By-laws, or any provision thereof, without a vote of shareholders.

ARTICLE VIII

Annual meetings of shareholders shall be held, at a date, time and place fixed by the Board of Directors and stated in the notice of meeting, to elect a Board of Directors and to transact such other business as may properly come before the meeting. Special meetings of shareholders may be called only in accordance with the provisions of ARTICLE VII of these Restated Articles of Incorporation. At each meeting of shareholders only such business may be conducted as is (a) specified in the written notice of meeting given by or at the direction of the Board of Directors, (b) in the case of an annual meeting, brought before the meeting by the Board of Directors or by the chairman of the meeting or (c) in the case of an annual meeting, specified in a written notice given by or on behalf of a shareholder of record, provided that written notice of such shareholder’s intent to make a proposal or proposals has been given, either by personal delivery or by United States mail, postage prepaid, to the Secretary of the Corporation not later than 60 calendar days in advance of the date in the current fiscal year of the Corporation corresponding to the date the Corporation released its proxy statement to shareholders in connection with the annual meeting for the immediately preceding year. Each such notice shall set forth: (a) the name and address of the shareholder who intends to make the proposal and the number of shares of the Corporation’s capital stock owned or controlled by such shareholder, (b) a representation that the shareholder is entitled to vote at such annual meeting and intends to appear in person or by proxy at the annual meeting to make the proposal specified in the notice and (c) such other information regarding each proposal made by such shareholder as would be required to be included in a proxy statement filed pursuant to the then current proxy rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission with respect to such proposals. The chairman of the meeting may refuse to acknowledge any proposal not made in compliance with the foregoing procedure.

I, Paul J. Jones, Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary of Harley-Davidson, Inc. (the “Corporation”), a corporation organized and existing under the Wisconsin Business Corporation Law (the “WBCL”), in accordance with the provisions of Section 180.1003 thereof, DO HEREBY CERTIFY THAT:

(b)              NOMINATIONS AND QUALIFICATIONS OF DIRECTORS. Nominations for the election of directors may be made by the Board of Directors or a committee appointed by the Board of Directors or by any shareholder entitled to vote generally in the election of directors. However, any shareholder entitled to vote generally in the election of directors may nominate one or more persons for election as directors at a meeting only if written notice of such shareholder’s intent to make such nominations has been given, either by personal delivery or by United States mail, postage prepaid, to the Secretary of the Corporation not later than (i) with respect to an election to be held at an annual meeting of shareholders, 60 calendar days in advance of the date in the current fiscal year of the Corporation corresponding to the date the Corporation released its proxy statement to shareholders in connection with the annual meeting for the immediately preceding year and (ii) with respect to an election to be held at a special meeting of shareholders for the election of directors, the close of business on the seventh day following the date on which notice of such meeting is first given to shareholders. Each such notice shall set forth: (A) the name and address of the shareholder who intends to make the nomination and of the person or persons to be nominated, (B) a representation that the shareholder is entitled to vote at such meeting and intends to appear in person or by proxy at the meeting to nominate the person or persons specified in the notice, (C) a description of all arrangements or understandings between the shareholder and each nominee and any other person or persons (naming such person or persons) pursuant to which the nomination or nominations are to be made by the shareholder, (D) such other information regarding each nominee proposed by such shareholder as would be required to be included in a proxy statement filed pursuant to the then current proxy rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission, if the nominee were to be nominated by the Board and (E) the consent of each nominee to serve as a director of the Corporation if so elected.

For purposes of clarity, the provisions of the foregoing sentence do not apply to vacancies on the Board of Directors (including a vacancy resulting from an increase in the number of directors) filled by a vote of the Board of Directors.
