H-D Rides with IMA
HARLEY-DAVIDSON OFFERED AN ADVENTURE of a lifetime to the cadets and officers of the Indian Military Academy (IMA): a ride to the Mana Pass on the India-Tibet border.
Harley-Davidson motorcycles have always stood for self-expression and passion, and offering a slice of the motorcycle adventure pie to cadets and officers of the IMA was one way of having them fulfil their dreams of personal freedom.
This ride got under way from the base at the IMA in Dehradun with 12 IMA cadets and five officers of the Indian Army. These riders rode through to the Mana Pass in Uttarakhand, one of the highest motorable passes in the world.
Harley-Davidson offered this group of riders an opportunity to explore the extreme surroundings of the Indo-China border. Cutting through the Himalayas on the India-Tibet border, the Mana Pass, situated at an altitude of 18,192 feet above sea level, provided quite a spectacle as much as an adventure.
The aim of this ride was to boost interest in motorcycling among cadets and officers.
