28 June-1 July – Goodwood Festival of Speed, Goodwood, Chichester
We’re already looking forward to showcasing at next year’s iconic Goodwood Festival of Speed – the largest motoring garden party in the world. Held in the immaculate grounds of Goodwood House, the annual event is a true celebration of motorsport and all things automotive. From the eclectic mix of classic and super cars, to two-wheel stars there’s bound to be something to suit everyone.
1-4 June – Ireland Bike Fest, Killarney, Ireland
As settings go, Ireland Bike Fest has it all. More than 30,000 visitors are expected to attend the 2012 event over the course of the weekend, which is an exciting social event for Harley-Davidson enthusiasts and the wider biker community alike. Don’t miss the Bike Village, daily ride-outs, custom bike shows, free Harley-Davidson demo rides and lots of free live entertainment throughout the day and night.
24-27 August – Thunder in the Glens – Aviemore, Scotland
The 16th annual Thunder in the Glens takes place in Aviemore between 24-27 August. With its organised ride-outs, live entertainment and an expected turn-out of more than 2,500 Harley-Davidson enthusiasts, the event is all set to be one of the largest biking rallies in Scotland.
Date TBC – Motorcycle Live, NEC, Birmingham
After a short break, we made our return to Motorcycle Live in 2010 and since then it’s remained one of the biggest events on our annual calendar. The 2011 exhibition was another success for us, as Harley-Davidson enthusiasts from far and wide visited our stand over the course of ten days to see our latest bikes and clothing collections. Although details for next year’s event are yet to be confirmed, make a note in your diary to visit us at the show as it’s bound to be an interactive day out for the whole family!
