Harley Owners Group – Qatar (HOG), in collaboration with Harley-Davidson Doha, gave a hero’s welcome to Qatari biker Khaled Al Jaber, the first Arab biker who crossed the longest connected track on earth from North Pole to South Pole.
A group of HOG bikers received Khaled at the airport and escorted him to the Harley-Davidson showroom on Salwa Road, where a welcome reception had been arranged for him.
Ayman Mohamed Ali, General Manager of Harley-Davidson Doha said they were pleased to welcome the Qatari biker and to recognise his accomplishments.
He is a Qatari icon who enhances the image of Qatar in the world, despite tremendous challenges. We praise his courage and adventurous spirit and we feel proud to host this welcome. It reflects our values and support for recognising all heroes who achieve success attributed to Qatar.
Al Jaber thanked everyone who supported his adventure.
It was a tough and challenging adventure. My aim was to encourage and inspire the youth to travel and face challenges. I would like to honour this achievement in the name of our beloved country, our wise leadership and all the people of Qatar.’
