HOG (Harley Owners Group) sponsored a Rolling Rally "Motoring the Mother Road" motorcycle tour, which came to Kingman Thursday. Mother Road Harley-Davidson hosted Thursday night's layover in Kingman and Chuy's provided dinner for the touring motorcyclists. Free passes to the Route 66 Museum were also available. The 12-day tour started in Chicago and will end in Santa Monica, Calif. Almost 400 people signed up for the tour, which last occurred nine years ago. Harold Mulholland from Brainerd, Minn., was among the bikers. He said that the tour had been a "fantastic ride."
