Harley Owners Group registration is now open!
It’s a throw back to 2002 when HOG led a contingency of riders along the route made famous by Meriwether Lewis and William Clark during their 1804 – 1806 expedition. I didn’t attend the original ride, but wrote about it in a post HERE. I’m sure the box of commemorative “swag” from HOG only contributed to the adventure and road stories.
From the Pacific Ocean to the banks of the Mississippi River in Missouri, the touring rally will take Harley-Davidson riders to 9 cities along the famed route, numerous museums and interpretive centers, as well as some spectacular wind in the face riding. It’s an especially great opportunity to ride the famous Bear Tooth Pass and explore Yellowstone National Park. Here is a post with some photos from when I traveled this route back in 2013.
It’s not an inexpensive touring rally as registration on the members.hog.com website is $450. It does include numerous meals, commemorative merchandise and special gatherings with fellow participants as part of the event package.
Notes from the website state: Maximum Capacity for the rally is 300. Full members may invite 1 guest on the tour. The member must register the guest under his/her member number and purchase one of the above packages. Cancellation: Prior to May 1, 2017 there is no cancellation fee. May 2, 2017 – July 3, 2017 a 50% fee will be imposed ($225). If the Rally Package has been mailed to members they will need to return the rally package before a refund will be issued. Cancelation deadline is July 4th, 2017.
Alert: You might not have this issue, but I was registering for the Pacific Northwest Rally earlier in the day and had numerous issues with the HOG website hanging. I was using a MacBook with Safari browser, but couldn’t get the site to work. I called the HOG Support phone line and it was suggested that I use Google Chrome browser, which I did and it worked fine with that browser.
