1 The Harley Owners Group will be in Ardmore beginning Thursday for the first ever Central Region HOG Rally. This event will draw Harley owners not just from across Oklahoma, but also Kansas, Missouri, Arkansas, Colorado — even a group from Australia.
During the three-day rally, riders will experience motorcycle rides throughout the scenic areas surrounding Ardmore. In addition, the Harley Davidson 2018 demo fleet will be on site for attendees.
Riders will also take part in a variety of activities, games and tests of riding skills, a bike show, and observation rides. The Rally, with a theme of “Island Time” kicks off at 5 p.m. Thursday in downtown Ardmore with music and food hosted by Ardmore Main Street Authority. Saturday afternoon will feature a parade of Harley-Davidsons winding through the streets of Ardmore at 4 p.m. So, whether you own a Harley or not, come check out the rally to see (and hear) the bikes and events.
