H.O.G. Tracing Pony Express Hot

Harley Owner's Group's Pony Express Rally retraces historic route; the 10-day ride covers stops in seven western states

Harley-Davidson Press Release

Harley Owners Group

Members of the Harley Owner's Group (H.O.G.) took off on Tuesday, retracing the storied route of the legendary Pony Express riders as they journey from St. Joseph, Missouri, to Sacramento, California, along a route that will take them to stops in seven western states in the course of the 10-day long-distance motorcycle journey

H.O.G.'s Pony Express Rally retraces the historic route that the original Pony Express riders followed in 1860-61 as they carried mail across the country. Points of interest include various museums tracing the history of the famous ride and actual Pony Express Station facilities and monuments as well as the opportunity to stand on the actual Pony Express trail in several locations. In addition to the tour stops, nearly 500 H.O.G. members from throughout the United States and the world will gather at seven dealer functions along the route as they cover some of the same territory the Pony Express riders rode on horseback nearly 150 years ago.

Special events include a 500–mile riding stint from Salt Lake City to Carson City, Nev., that will be recognized with a unique "500-mile" pin commemorating that segment of the rally.
