Bangkok, Thailand (November 23, 2022) — Harley-Davidson® successfully concluded its first ever Asia Harley Days® festival, with a roar of engines and thundering music on November 6, 2022.

Beyond Asia, riders came all the way from Belgium and Australia to join the festival as well.

Asia Harley Days included the iconic H.O.G. parade on 5 November, which was organized exclusively for H.O.G. members and Friends of H.O.G. The parade kicked off with a traditional ceremony to pay respect to the 7 Kings of Thailand, followed by H.O.G. logo formation. More than 350 riders came from Rajabhakti Park, Hua Hin, to join the parade and ride to the festival venue at Triple Tree Beach Resort, Cha-am.

Throughout the evening, thousands of festival attendees relished the electrifying music performances by well-known bands such as Ebola, Evolu5ion, DJ Alpha, DJ Riviere and Silly Fool. Apart from the music performances, the attendees enjoyed many other activities such as breathtaking gymkhana stunts, slow racing and test rides. Fun contests such as best beard, best tattoo, fashion icon, highest number of Harley-Davidson patches and best slogan. The iconic Custom Kings contest was one of the major attractions of the festival.

Attendees were also entertained by many other activities such as Championship Extreme stunts and food extravaganza. In the evening, awards were handed out to various winners of the on-spot contests and first ever Asia Harley Days Hall of Fame receipients, where over 50 select riders and dealer groups were recognized for their contribution and achievement to the community.
