Owning a Harley-Davidson is not only about open roads and loud exhausts, but it is also about caring. That is what the Harley-Davidson Bangalore Chapter, Tusker Harley has done. The Bangalore Harley Owners Group (H.O.G) set out on a ride to celebrate World Sight Day.
The ride saw 80 bikers, set off on a ride from Karnataka's capital city of Bangalore to Hoskote, a small rural town on the outskirts of Bangalore. Their destination was The Globe Eye Foundation, and their mission was Vision.
The riders pledged to donate their eyes to help towards India achieving a serious goal - eliminating avoidable blindness by the year 2020. The riders did contribute towards this mission, with the help of The Globe Eye Foundation.
The Globe Eye Foundation was founded in the year 1995 by Dr. Sundar Ram Shetty. The hospital is a registered charitable and nonprofit organization. It has been delivering eye care services through its Eye Hospital at Hoskote since 1996.
While at the eye foundation, the riders also checked out some of the Hospital's equipment and technology, which was a learning curve for the bikers. The riders consisted of women and kids, who were more than happy to ride for a cause such as this.
The H.O.G chapter from Bangalore is known to ride for causes. Previously, the Tusker Harley chapter from Bangalore organised a ride to educate people about road safety and awareness, and also visited an orphanage and made a contribution to help the underprivileged kids.
