The Harley pack on the lead.
Harley-Davidson has always been a brand which makes enthusiasts shiver with excitement. Based out of Gurgaon, Haryana, the company commenced it’s operations in India in August 2009 and had it’s first dealership up by July 2010. In India, the most affordable Harley you can buy is the Street and it’s priced at approximately Rs. 4.5 lakhs. And, if you are feeling really flush and you want a bike that can dwarf a Nano, you can go take a look at the Touring. This one costs as much as a Honda Accord.
Prepping for the escort.
There is a total of 10 models to choose from across 6 different variants – Sportster, Dyna, Softail, V-Rod, Touring and Street. The company itself sponsors the Harley Owners Group (H. O. G.) and organises five rides for it’s riders spanning the length and breadth of the subcontinent. The India H. O. G. rally takes place very year in euphoric Goa and as a treat, this year the Goan Harley group escorted the Football Championship (FC) Goa team bus from Panjim to Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Fatorda, FC Goa’s home ground. Sporting FC Goa jerseys and flags and decked in FC Goa colours – Blue and Orange, the biker boys rode ahead of the team bus along the winding lanes of Goa leading to the stadium.
The Hero Indian Super League, India’s unrivalled football championship kicked off on 12th October 2014 with a match against Atletico de Kolkata and Mumbai City FC at Salt Lake City stadium in Kolkata. FC Goa took on Chennaiyans FC at its opening match on 15th October 2014 at 7 pm at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Fatorda, Goa.
