HOG coming for rally

MOORE — More than 1,000 Harley-Davidson riders from across the region will come to Norman for the 29th annual Oklahoma State HOG Rally. The rally, which starts Thursday and runs through Saturday, will be held at the Embassy Suites Convention Center.

Registration will open at 2 p m. on Thursday. Registration is $35.

During the annual rally, riders will take part in a variety of activities, games and test of riding skills, bike show and observation rides. Concerts all three nights will feature bands, Evolution Underground, That 80’s Band and Deja Vu.

Thursday night, Fort Thunder Harley-Davidson, 500 SW 11th St. in Moore, will welcome the riders with a party.

“It’s a kick-off party. We are going to have live music,” said Andy Pro, Fort Thunder marketing manager. “The Hooters girls will be serving beer, and we will be doing a fashion show and a parts showcase that evening.”

The rally is at different locations each year and Fort Thunder is very happy to be hosting it this year, Pro said.

“They say it will be over 400 people,” Pro said. “On that night there will also be motorcycle dyno drag racing. It’s a machine that simulates actual drag racing. Your bike actually doesn’t move, but it will take your RPMS and tell you how fast your bike can go.”

Fort Thunder will have the dyno drag racing machine on site. Using the machine is free for participants. Motoclothes manager Ashli Mehrabian will coordinate the Fort Thunder fashion show.

“We have our new fall line of Harley Davidson motorclothes that will be showcased during the fashion show,” Pro said.

The parts showcase, organized by Fort Thunder parts manager John Schmitz, will highlight the new and upcoming parts and accessories, Pro said.

The three-day rally will offer free food, vendors, seminars and lots of fun. New this year will be a Rodeo Skills competition on Friday where riders will complete a course of tight turns and maneuvers. On Friday night, the feature event will be the 30th Birthday Bash at the Embassy Suites in Norman and Saturday night the party will conclude with closing ceremonies and another concert.
