    Are you coming to the biggest and best Harley-Davidson’s Africa bike week this year? Margate Hotel has front row tickets as we are one of the contributing hosts… We hope to see you there! Here is a small taste of what you can expect: Thousands of riders descend on the small coastal resort town (Margate) on the Freedom Day weekend, park the streets wall-to-wall with motorcycles for four days, shatter the nights with open pipes revving to full throttle – and the locals love it! There are going to be bikes bearing every nameplate from Aprilia to Zong Shen – cruisers, superbikes, tourers, adventure bikes, bobbers and customs.
