Nobody does it better

The Harley-Davidson events of 2012

If you ask a biker which brand he associates with good events, the answer will usually be “Harley-Davidson”. Why do motorcyclists agree so strongly, at least on this point? Apparently there is something to the claim that Harley-Davidson is “more than just a motorcycle” - namely a kind of attitude to life that goes well with parties, good mood and strong music. And in 2012 there's a lot of it on the schedule again!

The first big city event of the year is called Vienna Harley Days ( and will take place in the Austrian capital from May 10th to 13th, 2012. Members of the Harley Owners Group will travel to Cascais, Portugal, June 14-17 for the European HOG Rally ( ), nestled among hills, cliffs and beaches 30km west of Lisbon.

From June 22nd to 24th, the V-Twin community will be heading to Germany's north: The Hamburg Harley Days ( ) - often declared dead and yet more alive than ever - attract people to the wholesale market in the Elbe metropolis. A powerful program awaits visitors on the 40,000 m² site on the edge of the harbor. The partying continues on the Reeperbahn until late into the night.


Good vibrations will take place in Ischgl from July 27th to 29th: the Mountain Roadeo ( will take place for the second time at the foot of the beautiful ski area. has become one of the most important Austrian motorcycle events . The bikers will start collecting donations for children suffering from muscular dystrophy from August 10th to 15th.

The Friendship Ride Germany ( pursues the same charitable mission. Contrary to what was originally announced, Harley's largest German charity event will take place from August 10th to 12th. The unique backdrop is again the Wasserkuppe in the Rhön, the “land of open distances”. The largest motorcycle party on the continent will take place from September 4th to 9th, 2012, and it will transform the small Carinthian town of Faak into a V-twin Eldorado with a breathtaking pulse: It's European Bike Week Time ( ).
