Harley Davidson enthusiasts communed in the desert this week for the&nbsp;Northern Territory State Rally of the Harley Owners Group (HOG). Seventeen Mount Isa HOG members made the journey to Alice Springs, returning on Monday May 1 with sore buttocks and big grins after&nbsp;12 hours on&nbsp;the back of a bike. Mount Isa HOG&nbsp;director Tony Moloney said they were excited to join bikes and riders from all over Australia. “We had a fantastic weekend, one of the highlights was riding through the Bojangles Tavern,” Mr Moloney said. Another highlight was the Thunder Run where more than 500&nbsp;motorbikes rode through Simpsons Gap before taking over the pedestrian mall in Alice Springs. “All the people in town came out&nbsp;and waved as we went past,” Mr Moloney said. Mount Isa local Tracy Pertovt took part in the weekend and said she had a blast. “Over 2500km&nbsp;on the back of the Harley! Very sore bum but had a totally fantastic weekend with some of the best people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting!” Ms Pertovt said. Mr Moloney said Ms Pertovt&nbsp;did an excellent job in the annual tri chapter challenge between Mount Isa, Darwin, and Alice Springs. “It’s a little competition, we have a trophy that gets handed on every year." “Tracy ended up getting hold of each chapter’s shirts&nbsp;from Darwin and Alice Springs&nbsp;and getting a photo with them –&nbsp;people get livid if you’ve got another&nbsp;chapter’s shirt on,” Mr Moloney laughed. There are&nbsp;currently 35 members in the Mount Isa Harley Owners Group. Their next big event will be a&nbsp;local toy run for charity St Vincent de Paul.
