If you planned on going to the annual Cruisin’ the Coast rally in Myrtle Beach, then you may want to double check your calendar again. It has been decided that the date is going to be changed to go from May 18th to the 28th. This means that it will be going on during Memorial Day, which is why a lot of people are a little confused because it will be going on during the Atlantic Beach Bikefest. Now many people will have to choose which one they want to attend, when before they were able to go to both of them and not miss out on anything. It isn’t official yet, though. The organizers still have to go to the Horry County officials to get the event approved. The date change has many vendors and local businesses curious how it’s all going to turn out this year, but they shouldn’t worry because everyone knows Harley Davidson fans are loyal customers and they will all come out just as usual.
Harley Davidson is constantly expanding across the globe, and now their newest location is in India. They have become hugely popular throughout India, so it only makes sense to open up a dealership there. The bikes that will be carried are the Iron 883, Street Bob, Fat Boy, Night Rod, Special, and the Street Glide. There will also be other models, but these will be the main ones kept in inventory since they are the most popular. Harley Davidson is particularly popular in Kolkata, and this is why it was chosen to have the main showroom there. The grand opening will begin with a Harley Founders bike ride where everyone who owns a Harley will ride around the streets of Kolkata to celebrate the opening of the new Harley showroom.
You can now help out with the design of the next Harley Davidson motorcycle. Fans of Harley Davidson and Harley Davidson boots are able to give their input on the design of their next motorcycle through social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter. If you want to give them your 2 cents and vote on the design, all you have to do is visit the House of Harley and you can voice your opinion. Once the votes are in and the bike is finished, Harley Davidson will hold a raffle to give the bike away at the next Milwaukee Auto Show. All of the money made from the raffle tickets is going to be used to help build a new Fisher House of Wisconsin, which is a house used for families who have members being treated at the V.A. Hospital. So be sure to go vote because the bike is being created for a great cause!
Starting June 1st and going through June 3rd, there is a huge Harley Davidson motorcycle rally planned in Marietta, OH. The plan is to draw 5,000 people to the Thunder Road Madness Motorcycle Rally in order to get visitors drawn to the area and increase tourism for the town. They are hoping it will attract visitors from other cities and states to fill the hotel rooms in the town and give it the jump start it needs to get some exposure for everything Marietta has to offer. There has been a 5 year plan they have figured out to fill all hotels and campsites every year with this event, and hopefully have it grow to be even larger than the initially planned 5,000 tourists. They know that Harley Davidson enthusiasts don’t mind traveling to come to these type of events, and that is why they decided on a huge motorcycle rally, which have become very popular across the United States.
