More than a 1000 Harley-Davidson owners rode into Bengaluru as the city played host to the 5th Southern Harley Owners’ Group (H.O.G.) Rally on April 2nd, 2016. All the riders were from 22 H.O.G. Chapters – some having ridden all the way from Lucknow and Delhi to gather for a memorable experience.
One of the highlights of the event was the H.O.G. custom contest. This contest gave riders an opportunity to show-off their creative ideas through their motorcycles. Thirumal Govindraj from the Tusker Chapter (Bangalore) won the Contest with his customized Harley-Davidson Street Glide Special. The rally also witnessed close to 370 H.O.G. members ride thousands of kms in their quest for the Big 5 Patch. The patch is awarded each year to riders who cover all the zonal rallies and the India H.O.G. Rally in one year.
Speaking on the occasion, Srinivas Reddy, Dealer Principal, Tusker Harley-Davidson said that this year their chapter was thrilled to have hosted the brotherhood for the 5th Southern H.O.G. Rally in their home city. He further added that it’s at H.O.G. events like these where fun is in abundance.
Spread annually across the year, the zonal H.O.G. rallies aim to provide Harley Davidson owners with riding experiences across various terrains. In the past, rallies have been held in Kochi, Hyderabad, Chennai and Hampi and have always seen large numbers of H.O.G. members to from across India ride down to participate.
