FAAK - European Bike Week 2012

                                           Faak 2012

                            European Bike Week 2012

Back for its 15th year – European Bike Week – can it get any better? Oh yes it can! Europe’s biggest free and open bike event saw more than 70,000 bikes circle the shores of Faaker See in Austria in 2011. For 2012, the region of Carinthia will once again come alive with the sound of V-Twins as European Bike Week comes to town.

For custom bike enthusiasts, make sure you enter the AMD Affiliated Custom Bike Show. Not only is a trip to Sturgis to compete at the World Championships up for grabs, but the winner of the Best Modified Harley class will also ride away the proud owner of a Screamin’ Eagle Big Bore engine – the perfect start to their next custom project!

The parade will once again see more than 25,000 bikes take the ride from Faaker See to Finkenstein, Villach and Ossiacher See. In 2011 the parade was rumoured to have stretched 26km – let’s see if we can beat that this year!

This event continues to attract dealers and traders from all across Europe who will occupy the Dealer Mile and provide shopping enthusiasts with plenty of choice. With food, drink, entertainment and some of Europe’s best biking roads, what more could you ask for? Get the dates in the diary: September 4-9!

Harley Village
The Harley village – what’s going on?

Have your photo taken astride a Harley against the backdrop of your choice at the ‘Me-on-a-Harley’ stand as well as experiencing the Fit Shop and having a Harley tailored to suit you.
Picture Yourself on a Harley! Impress all your friends with pictures of you riding Route 66, hanging outside a Las Vegas diner, racing round a track, or leading the front of a ride out. Not got time to go to all these places? Don't worry because you can go there virtually. Just select your chosen background and have your picture taken for free at our interactive motorcycle stand in the Expo Tent.

After the show, you can share your digital experience with your friends by downloading your photographs at:

Regardless of which bike you have, any Harley-Davidson® motorcycle can be tailored to match your unique body type, riding style and personality. Fit and function are the bare essentials of customizing. If you do nothing else to your motorcycle, make sure your bike fits your body properly and accommodates the type of riding you plan to do. Having the right accessories makes all the difference to the comfort and control you feel on the road.

You will find event merchandise stands at the entrance on the Dealer Mile, the Custom Village and the main Harley Plaza. Purchase your event T-shirt with many different latest-season designs to choose from. Buy a pin here for your chance to win the raffle bike, as well as purchase souvenirs or a little something for the kids back home.

Visit the dealer area for some H-D-branded retail therapy – shop until your drop! Nineteen dealers from Germany, Austria and Italy will have an extensive selection of everything Harley-Davidson.
