Are you ready for The Harley-Davidson® H.O.G.™ Thunder Ride?
One the largest congregations of Harley-Davidson® motorbikes ever seen in Victoria will descend on Dandenong Market on Sunday 6 November.
It will be one of the biggest Harley-Davidson® gatherings of its kind in Victoria, attracting hundreds of Harley owners.
Organised by the Dandenong Chapter of the Harley Owners Group™, this spectacle is two years in the making.
The convoy will finish the ride at Dandenong Market around 11am, where everyone is welcome to join in the fun.
The Harley-Davidson® H.O.G.™ Thunder Ride not only attracts a patriotic, leather-loving crowd but the FREE event will cater to families too. Children will love to watch the bikes cruise along, many with Australian and Harley flags waving behind them.
Every participating bike will be on display at the Market all day. There will be a Show and Shine exhibition and a performance by the popular tribute band, The Screamin’ Eagles.
It’s a great social day out for families and everyone is invited to!
