Welcome to the Maine State HOG Rally website. We look forward to seeing you at the 2014 "Cruzin' to the Beach" rally. This year we will rally in the town of Old Orchard Beach; where there is always something to do!
"Cruzin' to the Beach" is just what it says…and this year’s Maine State H.O.G. Rally can make your cruising-to-the-beach dreams come true at Old Orchard Beach. Arriving at your destination, you’ll be greeted by seven miles of sand beach that has been welcoming people to Maine for over 170 years.
On the first night of the Rally you’ll be treated to a fireworks display over the beach while you enjoy some refreshments at the beer garden at the beach front host hotel – The Waves.
During the days you can do some more cruising in beautiful Vacationland. Maybe you’d like to check out some of Maine’s famous lighthouses, or go on a scenic ride through the countryside, or even see some of Maine’s famous lakes. You get to decide if you’d like to be led, or go it alone at your own pace. After all, half the fun of going to a state H.O.G. rally is seeing sights you’ve never seen before with new and old friends along the way.
But maybe you’re one of those types that “eats to ride and rides to eat.” Well, we have a special lunch ride for you to Bentley’s Saloon—a destination for bikers visiting New England. If you like night life at vacation beach towns, you’ll love Old Orchard Beach. Restaurants, clubs, businesses and the Chamber of Commerce are going all out to welcome Rally participants.
Prepare to show-off your Harley during the police-escorted parade through town. And if you think your ride is among the best of the best, you can enter it in the bike show at the end of the parade route. This gives everyone the opportunity to get that up-close look at your customization, and to vote on it too!
Find out how your riding prowess stacks up against your H.O.G. brothers and sisters during the field events. We have some fairly traditional competitions planned – like the slow ride – but with some new twists. However, if riding contests aren’t your thing, we have some great non-riding skill games that will be changing every day, but better yet, some great prizes for the winners, but also with a twist.
During your last night, you’ll be treated to a bonfire (weather permitting) on the beach. But that’s not all. What would a visit to the Maine coast be without a lobster dinner? Well we’re doubling that…a twin lobster dinner!!! (For you land-lubbers, we have a pig roast dinner available too.) You can only order these dinners if you pre-register. To wrap things up you’ll be dancing the night away to the L-A Harley Band and an adult beverage (or two) at The Normandie Oceanfront Motor Inn beer garden.
Are you a Lifetime H.O.G. member? We have a little special recognition for all of you who have made that everlasting decision for your Harley-Davidson passion.
So don’t miss out on all the riding and fun at Old Orchard Beach. Get your overnight accommodations at The Waves -- the host hotel – or our other co-sponsoring hotels, The Normandie Oceanfront Motor Inn, The Alouette Beach Resort, The Beau Rivage Motel, and The Crest Motel. See this website for contact phone numbers, and be sure to tell them you are attending the Maine State H.O.G. Rally to receive your special discounted rate.
Don’t let the sands of time run out on you, because you only have until May 8, 2014 to pre-register. (On-site registrants are always welcome, but will not receive a t-shirt or pin, and will not be able to order the twin lobster or pig roast dinners.) Our Maine H.O.G. Chapters, and Maine Harley-Davidson dealerships have all made contributions to ensure you have a great time "Cruzin' to the Beach".
The 2014 Maine HOG rally will be supporting local food banks. For each non-perishable food item you bring to registration you will receive a ticket for a drawing at closing ceremonies.
Come on! Join us as we go "Cruzin' to the Beach"!
