Dullstroom will once again become known as ‘HarleyStroom’ over the weekend of 18 – 20 September, 2015, as the Harley Owners’ Groun (HOG) Zambezi chapter descend upon the friendly, countryside village.
This weekend-long event, known simply as the HOG Zambezi Rally, is widely anticipated by both locals and visitors alike, and open to all Harley enthusiasts and admirers from near and far.
Highlights over the weekend include the HarleyStroom Staalbal Outride, which sees bikers embarking upon a scenic outride of either 350km or 150km through Dullstroom, Blyderiver Canyon, Ohrigstad, Lydenburg, Sabie and Graskop. The route can take up to 5 hours to complete, and provides participants with the opportunity to hit the open road in true Harley style, experience some of the smaller South African towns.
Another hot commodity is the beer garden, which will see a string of live entertainment throughout the weekend. Resident radio DJ Robin Jansma is the designated MC and DJ for the HOG Zambezi Rally, busting out tunes from what he likes to call the ‘Harley Rock’ genre, which includes classics from the 70’s, 80’s, and a few of today’s popular hits. Home-grown bands 2nd Life, BonFire, Sweet November, and Nighthawk will also be on hand to keep the masses satiated.
For the avid Harley lovers out there, the rally is also a chance to sample the latest Harley models on the market at absolutely no cost. Simply make your way to the Harley-Davidson Experience Truck to check out these beauties.
Whether you’re a Harley enthusiast, a visitor to Dullstroom, or simply a Dullstroom local, make your way to the HarleyStroom rally site, for a weekend of endless pleasure, a spirit of friendliness and hospitality, and the overall experience of the year.
