    I think it's a good thing. HOG typically has closed runs for chapters, closed events, etc. Why not open up the Harley Days event? It'd only bring more exposure to biking in general, and expose the marque to some that may not otherwise go to an event like this.

    When I was in HOG, the sponsor dealer closed down so join another chapter or we had to disband, they wanted us to hand over all our money to them stop using the HOG name, as we were "inc" we said get stuffed handing over the money and changed our name (no HOG) and after a couple years, opened the club up to all bikes, got about the double number as what left, of the 150ish members, 30 are not Harley's, we all get along with each other.

    I think is would be a good thing for all bikes to be involved, HOG can still have some "closed" events but there is more money in open events for all.

    even OMC's have open runs, poker rides and club only.

    The wife and I are going. We were members of the Dandenong chapter but left and joined an SMC started by friends. I think it is good that Harley are opening up the event to all riders.

    I think that the entry cost structure could be more flexible, as far as I can see its a one off $49.00 on line registration ,but no prevision for some one wanting to go for just one Day .I recon the show & shine on Sunday would be worth a look but the guided rides thru Kangaroo Valley could catch a few exuberant riders out, but all in all it will bring some good awareness for motorcycling & Dollars to the Gong

    Open to all types of bikes because it'll be a good opportunity to sell Harley's to the non Harley riders

    i live in Wollongong and i must say its all over the radio and even getting pamphlets in the mail ..
    Im not a member of hogs and i was told "if your not a member of hogs you cant participate in the thunder run / show and shine !!!"

    i also asked so NON HOG members will there be motorcycle parking allocated ??? response " its in Wollongong there is plenty of street parking near the venue"
    lived here most my life the only time i found it easy to get a parking spot near stewart park was in winter ... good luck finding a parking spot ... i wouldn't leave my bike unattended in Wollongong for 5min let alone all day... safe to say that i might just give this a miss even tho its 15min from home....
