The weekend that went by witnessed hundreds of Harley-Davidson Owners pouring into the city of Kochi, as it played host to the 4th Southern H.O.G. Rally. More than 1000 Harley owners from across 15 H.O.G. Chapters thundered from as far as Chandigarh and Jaipur – making this the largest zonal rally so far.
The two-day event witnessed a line-up of exciting inter-chapter activities like – an exclusive ride for the Harley owners, a traditional Sadya Kerala lunch, arm wrestling, human foosball competition, biker burnout battles, and the prestigious H.O.G. Custom Contest. The Contest gave riders an opportunity to show-off their creative spirits through their motorcycles. The rally also witnessed many Harley owners who are in quest of the Big 5 Patch, which is awarded each year to riders who cover all the zonal rallies and the India H.O.G. Rally in one year.
Marking the advent of the riding season which spans from September to March, the 4th Southern H.O.G. Rally has seen exceptional growth over the past 4 years. From 200 riders, the participation has grown to a whopping 1000 riders. Jose EP, Director, Spice Coast Chapter, Kochi added, “Every edition we see hundreds of Harley owners ride together, covering thousands of kilometers, and this is a true testimony to the camaraderie that the Harley owners share. The 4th Southern H.O.G. Rally was the first time Spice Coast got a chance to welcome its brothers to Kochi, and we hope that all the riders had a great experience.”
After this event, the brotherhood is all set to ride to Chandigarh for the 4th Northern H.O.G. Rally from November 20th – 22nd.
