Hello Guys,

Hereby some pics from Egypt. Can't give you beautiful landscape pictures, as some of you have provided all of us with, but then some HOG pics from Egypt.


Parked in Ain el soukhna near Suez, but not really! I took the picture of the Chopper in Cairo, and played a little in Photoshop. Placed it at the location where the HOG members normally go to.

Olliver on his Chopper.

Entrance to Sharm El Sheik – South Sinai.

Sinai Mountains.

View over the Reed See in Sharm El Sheik. Favorite diving place.

Meeting point every Friday at Costa Cafee, Cairo.

The group on their way to Ain El Soukhna – Suez

Awesome Fat Boy!

Trike!

Custom made!



Hope you like the pictures.

Regards

flemse,

Thanks for posting. Great pictures. Great to see that wherever you are in this great big world, you can find like-minded folks and ride.

Loved all the bikes, and the picture of the Reed Sea. Looks like a great riding destination.

Keep the pictures coming.

Ride on, ride well.

Doug

I spent 2 years in Cairo, 86-88, and never saw one decent bike. I did see 4 people and a goat on a UJM of some type, but no bikes worth having. That is one place I would have to have more protection than the 2 wheels could provide. Back then, USAA would not even insure my car, let alone a bike.

Bikes in Egypt

I spent 2 years in Cairo, 86-88, and never saw one decent bike. I did see 4 people and a goat on a UJM of some type, but no bikes worth having. That is one place I would have to have more protection than the 2 wheels could provide. Back then, USAA would not even insure my car, let alone a bike.
Hello allikanbe,
Things are different now.
We are about 75 HOG members of Chapter Cairo. There are about 100 bikes. Many of the members have more than one bike. Some of them 3 bikes. The picture where I write "Custom Made" underneath, owner American. He have 5 bikes here in Egypt and 4 back in USA. So a lot of nice bikes to see.
You are right concerning the danger of driving here, but you get used to it. They all drive like they have stolen their car, but when we go on a ride together, it is very much organized. With a sweeper, a leader and somebody to take care of the traffic around us. When we are so many, nobody dare to go in between us, so it is OK. The bikes are insured through the Harley Dealer and SMG, which are a big company selling Porche. They are the owners of HD Egypt.
Best thing about riding here is the weather. We can ride all the year.
Furthermore, there is right now a lot of attention around the HOG group here. Last December, we were all invited to Sharm El Sheik for one week. Just show up with our bikes. There was a Beauty contest "Miss Poland". Everything was free, Hotel accomodation, food, trips to other locations. Special permissions was arranged. Parking in front of Hard Rock Cafè, dinner at the same place and other permissions to go where cars and motorcycles not are allowed normally. We had also Police escorte on some of the trips, and very well organized with 3 trailors and backup cars, if somethig should happen.
Some Egyptian and German TV stations have recently recorded a lot about HOG Chapter Cairo.
Tomorrow we have a big HOG dinner at a nice Hotel. We will be 65 people there. 5 of the bikes (including mine) shall stand inside the Hotel infront of the restaurant while we have the dinner.

We have our own HOG LOUNGE, always open for us, where we have a free barbeque together every second week. One of the dealers have made that for us. HD Egypt makes then a free barbeque the other weeks, so every week we are together.
So you see that a lot have changed, since you were here in 86 - 88.
Here som Photos of our HOG Lounge:
