The first ever meeting of Bulgarian owners of Harley-Davidson motorcycles has been hosted by Veliko Tarnovo, a tourism center and Bulgaria's medieval capital.

About 150 people in Bulgaria own Harley-Davidson bikes, and half of those were expected to attend the meeting as the organizers sent invitations to Harley-Davidson clubs in Bulgaria and in neighboring countries.

The major driving force of the first Bulgarian Harley-Davidson meeting has been Veliko Tarnovo businessman Petar Stefanov from the Bed Company Motor Club, Darik Veliko Tarnovo reported.

Stefanov is the owner of a 1600-cubic Harley-Davidson Fatboy that he purchased from the USA 5 years ago, the same model that was show in hit movie Terminator 2.

Being a Harley Owner here in Bulgaria I would have liked to attend the meeting. How do I find about future gatherings BEFORE they happen, not after. I have a 1993 Harley FXR that I have riden 140 000 km. Would love to meet some other rider here.

A 1963 Harley Davidson is worth about $8,000 USD.
A 1963 Honda is now a bunch of recycled beer cans and shopping bags.
enough said.

There is an old saying. If you want to get from point "a" to point "b" get yourself a rice rocket. If you want to ride? Get a Harley.

I wondered what all of that racket was.. Thought it was an earthquake !!
Harleys can't perform, but sure make a lot of noise..
Stick with your Japanese "rice rockets", boys.. They run circles around Harleys, and don't sound like a garbage-can full of nuts & bolts....
