The History of FH-DCE Super Rally® 

 

Every year in a different place, organised by a different member clubs of the FH-DCE.fhdce_logo.gif

This is the most European Harley-Davidson Rally that you can imagine.  Riding a Harley-Davidson is meeting
new friends; discover other countries and cultures and this is all packed in the FH-DCE Super Rally®.

It goes from the north to the south, from the east to the west, and every year it comes with a new surprise. From the salmon in the north to the pasta and cookies in the south. That’s what makes the FH-DCE Super Rally® really super.

But talking about Super Rally®, were does the name come from? For this answer I had to go many years back.

We go back to the sixties when Harley-Davidson Clubs from the Netherlands, Germany and Belgium meet each other at Harley-Davidson Rally’s.

One of the most popular Rallies was the Pinkster Rally in Holland. The first one was organised by H-D C Utrecht (this club later changed their name to
Harley-Davidson Club the  Netherlands). The Pinkster Rally become bigger and bigger and also the program was more then at a normal Harley-Davidson Rally. After the Pinkster Rally in 1973 the name was changed to Super Rally. Why is not very clear. Possible that a French group promised a Superrrrrrr Rally for 1974 as it should be in Paris France. But they cancelled the Rally just one week before, so in fact the First Super Rally was a NOT a Super Rally at all.

In 1975 the first Super Rally was held at Kastelree Belgium. It was not as big as it is now, but it was organised with the same goals and ideas as it is now .

Today the name FH-DCE Super Rally®. is owned exclusively by the memberclubs of Federation Harley-Davidson Clubs Europe.
