KUCHING: More than 150 Harley-Davidson motorbike owners are expected to take part in the Borneo International Harley Owners Group (HOG) Rally Malaysia 2017.

Organised by the HOG Kuala Lumpur Chapter Malaysia, it will be held from this coming 30 September to 9 October covering routes in Sarawak, Sabah, Labuan, and Brunei.
