Bill Davidson, vice president of the Harley-Davidson Museum in Milwaukee, USA and great-grandson of company co-founder, William A. Davidson will attend the first ever Asia Pacific H.O.G.® (Harley Owners Group) Convention 2015 in Bali, Indonesia, Nov. 4 to 7.
“Hosting a H.O.G. convention in Bali, our first in the Asia Pacific region, is exciting for the company and our H.O.G. members,” said Davidson. “I can’t wait to join them in Bali for this historic, and fun, experience.”
In addition to meeting Davidson, participants can look forward to an exclusive showcase of Harley-Davidson’s new 2016 motorcycle model range, on display for the first time in Southeast Asia following its launch in the USA in September. They will also be treated to high-energy beachfront entertainment every evening, featuring local and international artistes against the panoramic Kuta Beach backdrop.
The four-day convention will, for the first time, incorporate H.E.A.T (H.O.G. Enthusiasts Adventure Training), a special training developed for members to share case studies and best practices, allowing them to gain invaluable skills on how to run chapters more effectively and plan memorable rides. The training will be delivered in English, Japanese and Mandarin.
Marc McAllister, vice president and managing director, Asia Pacific at Harley-Davidson, said, “Asia Pacific is one of our most important markets with more than 80,000 H.O.G. members across 24 countries. By providing a platform for our members, dealers and chapters from around the region to interact and exchange insights in one place, the upcoming H.O.G. Convention is a testament to our philosophy of being a customer-led company.
“Asia is perfect for the sport of motorcycling – combining city riding with expansive highways and scenic countryside. We expect with so many regional participants coming together for this convention for the first time, riders will form greater connections and uncover new riding possibilities in the region, allowing riders to fulfil dreams of personal freedom.”
Participants of the H.O.G. Convention 2015 who purchase one of its training packages will have a chance to enter a skills competition to win signed Harley-Davidson memorabilia by Bill Davidson, as well as a trip for two to Milwaukee, USA – home of Harley-Davidson. The trip will include two premium economy class tickets, two nights in a Milwaukee hotel and a visit to the Harley-Davidson Museum.
