More than 500 Harley-Davidson owners recently roared on highways across the country to join an epic celebration to mark the first National H.O.G. Rally in India and celebrate at Goa.
The rally also marked the beginning of year-long 110th Anniversary Celebration for Harley-Davidson.
This special occasion was graced by Karen Davidson, Creative Director for Harley-Davidson General Merchandise. Ms. Davidson is the great- granddaughter of Harley-Davidson co-founder, William A. Davidson, and daughter of Willie G. Davidson, who recently retired after 49 years with the Motor Company and is now Harley-Davidson’s Chief Styling Officer Emeritus.
Commenting on her maiden visit to India and 110th anniversary celebration Karen Davidson said, “I am thrilled to be here riding in Goa to mark the beginning of Harley-Davidson’s 110th year. It’s always a pleasure to meet and ride alongside Harley-Davidson owners, and the level of passion and enthusiasm among India’s HOG members is remarkable!” She added that “Harley-Davidson is not a brand that belongs to any one generation or culture, it’s a brand that creates intense passion among freedom minded, adventure seeking individuals of all ages across the world.”
Harley Davidson owners and aficionados in India can purchase exclusive 110th anniversary merchandise at all the nine Harley-Davidson dealerships in country. During the recent event, Harley-Davidson India invited several HOG members who had clocked the most kilometers in 2012 from each of the eight HOG chapters to wear the Freedom Jacket. The jacket is adorned with emblems and patches from its journeys all over the world since August. After Goa, the jacket will travel to each of the remaining 110th year celebrations this year.
