Harley-Davidson India hosted its 6th annual India H.O.G. Rally in Goa from February 1-3, 2018, with a bigger celebration to mark 115 years of the brand. More than 2000 H.O.G. members rode into Goa from across 30 Chapters for the largest Motor Cycle Event of the Year.

Over three days the event saw live performances by popular local band Raagas 2 Riches along with a mashup by Valentine Shipley on acoustics and Rap-star Amandeep. The affair concluded on a high note with a scintillating performance by the timeless Lucky Ali adding to the commemorative spirit of the brand’s milestone 115th year.

On the occasion of the 6th edition of the India H.O.G. Rally, Peter Mackenzie, Managing Director, Harley-Davidson India & China, said: “Popularly known as H.O.G., the Harley Owners Group is the world’s original social network with over a million members worldwide. H.O.G. plays a pivotal role in fuelling Harley-Davidson’s lifestyle and culture in India. The enthusiastic participation is a testimony to the brand’s influence in the motorcycle community in India. The camaraderie among the riders celebrating their passion for motorcycling and love for Harley-Davidson is inspiring for us to continue hosting bigger and better rallies.”

In customary annual tradition, H.O.G. members displayed customized motorcycles stamped with their individual style at the Custom Bike Contest. The unique personalized representation of the 48 custom Harley-Davidson  won Adil Dumasia an opportunity to visit the 78th Annual 2018 Sturgis Rally in South Dakota, USA, a mecca for motorcycle lovers.

The 6th India H.O.G. Rally also welcomed the ‘Dragon Chapter ‘Bhutan whose members rode to Goa to be a part of their first India H.O.G. Rally. The India H.O.G.
