The CHDDA will have a demo truck located at The Dirt Track at Charlotte Motor Speedway with a wide variety of motorcycles for fans to choose from in order to experience the Harley-Davidson lifestyle. Patrons of the event will have the luxury to choose from 17 current models of the Harley-Davidson repertoire and will also have the option to cruise on the ever-popular Harley-Davidson Trike.

“We’re excited to be able to offer fans the Harley-Davidson experience at the Charlotte Half-Mile,” said Cameron Gray, COO of AFT Events. “This will bring the fan experience aspect of the race to a whole new level and we are glad that we can do this with the partnership of the CHDDA.”

If you are not a licensed motorcycle rider, have no fear because the CHDDA will have trained staff on-site to guide you through the Harley-Davidson JUMPSTART experience. This program is offered to those who enjoy the roar of the road but the comfort of the parking lot. The Harley-Davidson JUMPSTART provides a fully-equipped bike with the ability to pull back on the throttle, have your feet on the pegs and feel the roar of the cherished Harley-Davidson motorcycle without moving an inch.

“We will have 17 new Harley-Davidson models available for test rides, including our incredible CVO Screamin’ Eagle models,” said Aimee Thomas of Speedway Harley-Davidson, President of the CHDDA. “Come out and join us in all the fun. We will be there for demos from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. both Friday and Saturday.”

Spectators who wish to participate in the Dealer Demo Rides must have a current motorcycle license and be over the age of 18. Those who plan to take a ride on the open road must bring a helmet, wear closed-toe shoes and long pants or jeans. Rides are mapped out throughout Concord, N.C. with Harley-Davidson approved lead and trail riders to guide the group on a fun and safe adventure.

Demo rides will be happening every hour starting at 10:00 a.m. and participants are encouraged to arrive 15 minutes prior to departure for safety instructions.
