Wild Hogs roar into Brisbane for rally

Hundreds of Wild Hogs will roar into Brisbane for the annual Harley Owners Group Queensland Rally from tomorrow until Sunday (September 18-20, 2015).

The Rally is being held at the Mt Gravatt Showgrounds and more than 450 have already registered to attend with more expected to register at the gates over the three-day rally.

The rally is a closed event and HOG Membership ID will be required at the gate.

Meanwhile, the annual national rally has become an open event from next year called Harley Days with non-Harley members and riders invited to attend.


A highlight of the Queensland HOG Rally will be the many rock bands providing entertainment such as the Grumpy Old Men and Screamin’ Eagles who were a big hit at the national HOG Rally in Tamworth earlier this year, and Down Under on the Saturday night.

There will also be the usual bike games such as slow riding competitions, a bike wash, show and shine and guided rides around the Brisbane and Gold and Sunshine Coast hinterlands, including stops at Sirromet Winery, the Bearded Dragon at Tamborine Village and The Outpost Cafe at Canungra. They are also raffling off a Harley-Davidson Sportser 883 Iron.

The main attraction of any HOG Rally is the Sunday morning Thunder Run, so called because of the thunder of hundreds of Harley V-twins rumbling through the city and surrounds. The Thunder Fun starts at 7am and rolls through the Beenleigh region, so be on the lookout for the Wild Hogs!

  1. Wow. Didn’t take long for the sarcastic remarks to arise. Clever. Undoubtedly written by a couple of gentlemen that organise and participate in rides that support local charities (just like this HOG rally will). Surely?

    Good to see the National Rally, or parts there of, will be opened to the public next year. Good marketing by HD but also good for all motorcyclists and those that are interested in riding.

    Mark — got any more stories/reviews from the Japan trip? I’m interested in what you think of the 2016 HD range, especially the Dyna’s with the hi-flow engine, which won’t be coming to Oz just yet.

  2. Thanks for the warning
    I’ll stock up on earplugs and fit a cow catcher to the suv to shove all the dead hogs off the road if I have to go near there
