My first All About Wheels update as soon I got off the plane from Los Angeles was about Harley-Davidson Middle East and North Africa (MENA)’s Open House Day in UAE – it included an exciting array of events hosted by the local dealerships for the Harley-Davidson community in each city and launched Harley-Davidson’s 2015 line up of motorcycles in Fujairah, Abu Dhabi and Dubai….pity I was not able to be part of it but as they say, when Hollywood calls, you just have to go!
Fujairah hosted the first of the three with over 250 riders and aficionados gathering at the dealership for breakfast before setting out for the first Fujairah Bike Week and Shukran Khalifa Parade. The second Open House was held in Abu Dhabi where over 120 enthusiasts gathered to see the new models of 2015 followed by an unveiling of the Street Glide® Special at the Toast of Americas Festival that took place at the Abu Dhabi City Golf Club.
On October 31, 2014, while I was busy in Hollywood, the Open House Day had 250 attendees at the Dubai dealership where they saw Harley-Davidson’s 2015 line of iconic motorcycles with some refreshments followed by a ride out to the Gulf Bike Week. A grand unveiling of the CVO Street Glide® 2015 took place at the dealership and at Gulf Bike Week. A highlight of the day was Harley-Davidson leading the Thunder Parade – a signature part of the Gulf Bike Week that saw riders from across the region come down to participate.
The 2015 range has Harley-Davidson hard on the throttle of innovation, combining world class aerodynamics and superb audio with advanced ergonomic comfort. Propelled by Project RUSHMORE’s customisations and the buzz of Project LiveWire’s combination of heritage and technology, the 2015 line up is carefully crafted for maximum enjoyment of the open road.
