Thousands of motorcyclists will rumble into the Atlanta Motor Speedway from August 4 – 9 for what is known as one of the largest motorcycle camping rallies in the country. Nearly 15,000 African American motorcyclists will make their way to the 32nd Annual National Bikers Roundup to reconnect and commune with fellow motorcyclists for six days of musical entertainment, drag racing, and more.
"Harley-Davidson is honored to be a part of this historical event and celebrate the rich history of African American motorcyclists," said John Comissiong, director of market outreach for Harley-Davidson. "We are proud to support National Bikers Roundup for 12 years now and we believe this event continues to build our relationship with diverse customers."
Harley-Davidson will present a check to the Atlanta Community Food Bank, donating $2000 to help feed those in need. Event-goers will also have the opportunity to enjoy Harley-Davidson activities August 5-8. These activities include:
>> Free Demo Rides on 2010 Harley-Davidson® Motorcycles
>> Official H.O.G. Pin Stop
>> Harley-Davidson MotorClothes® Apparel Fashion Show on Friday at 8 p.m.
