Harley-Davidson riders in Singapore rode in unison round island on the evening of June 23, as part of the H-D World Ride 2014 agenda of tattooing the globe with Harley mileage in a united demonstration of freedom across the world.
Meetup was at the H-D dealership where a total of 70 riders hit the major expressways by late evening, ending at the Round House restaurant just off Turf City. Our riders’ contribution to the H-D World Ride meter after the 2 hour-long island ride? More than 7,000km. Cool.
The Harley-Davidson World Ride 2014 actually lasted for two days from June 22 to 23, joined by thousands of Harley riders around the world shedding their shackles of responsibility and hitting the open road. New for 2014, ride participants could also log their post-ride mileage directly onto the World Ride web site from mobile devices and share their riding stories and photographs on social media sites like Facebook and Twitter using the hashtag #HDworldride.
Launched in 2008 by the Harley Owners Group as Million Mile Monday, the annual riding event was expanded into the two-day Harley-Davidson World Ride in 2012 to give more riders worldwide an opportunity to participate. Riders logged their miles solo, in groups large and small, and through a variety of dealer-led events around the world, united by their shared passion for motorcycling.
