Harley-Davidson is inviting all South African bikers to ride united in support of mens health, no matter what you ride.

Cape Town - For the past 11 years the 11th month of each year has been devoted to men’s health issues and the cultivating of hirsute (rather than stiff) upper lips.

This year, Harley-Davidson is joining the movement with the local initiative Snors for a Cause Motorcade 2014, aimed at raising awareness and funds for More Balls than Most. Brother initiative of PinkDrive, More Balls than Most is dedicated to promoting awareness of the importance of early detection of prostate and testicular cancer.

The Motor Company is inviting all South African riders to come together on Saturday 1 November and ride united in support of men’s health – no matter what you ride, whether it’s a pit bike, superbike, cruiser, scooter or even a trike. There will be a Snors for a Cause parade on the same day at each of South Africa’s 10 Harley-Davison dealerships:

Anybody on a street-legal motorcycle, scooter or trike is welcome to join the Snors for a Cause Motorcade. There’s no registration fee, but you can make a donation by buying a specially printed Snors for a Cause buff for R130 on Harley-Davidson Africa’s Facebook page. A limited number of commemorative metal badges will also be available at the parades - but you’d better be there early if you want one.

Paul de Jongh, country manager of Harley-Davidson Africa, has pledged a minimum of R50 000 from his side for the fight against cancer in men.
