Paris Harley Davidson, along with Adam Sandoval and the Choctaw Casino & Resort – Grant, are expecting more than 2,500 motorcycles to flood the road Saturday, September 15, as they attempt to break the World Record for the Largest Parade of Harley Davidson Motorcycles.
Greece currently holds the record with 2,404 Harley’s and Paris Harley Davidson believes it’s time to Bring it Home.
While the parade doesn’t take place until Saturday afternoon, it is important to remember that more than 2,500 riders will be in the area with some arriving as early as today.
“We have riders coming from all over the country for this so a lot of them may not be familiar with the roads,” said Logan from Paris Harley Davidson. “We are expecting well over 2,500 riders in the parade so there will definitely be more bikes on the road this week and weekend.”
The parade will also result in a traffic detour on Loop 286, click here to read more information.
“Part of our responsibility as motorists is to always be aware of other vehicles on the road and to give them plenty of space,” said TxDOT Executive Director James Bass in a Share the Road message. “Motorcycles are particularly vulnerable because they can be difficult to see and don’t have the standard safety features found in cars and trucks. On a motorcycle, even a relatively minor collision can be fatal, so we’re urging drivers to please keep an eye out for their fellow motorists.”
Texas Department of Transportation reminds drivers of the following tips to keep the roads safe:
- Always use turn signals.
- Give motorcycles plenty of space and don’t follow too closely.
- Check mirrors before changing lanes.
- Give motorcyclists a full lane.
