The highest number ever, the total exceeded 700!
For Sportster owners, CAN COFFEE MEETING (known as CCM!) has become routine events. CCM!s are now held in many parts of Japan, and here Kobe is the birthplace of the CCM!s. Surprisingly,Kobe CCM! faced the 12th times this year.

This time, Charles-san who organizes the Sportster meeting in the Netherlands and his wife Monique-san visited to Japan for participation, as a special guest. Then,the number of participation on this day was 709 motorcycles that was the
highest ever. This gave us a realization of that this event was reaching the world scale.
Best of all,smiles of all participants were impressive. Not only participants,but also the management staff enjoyed the meeting. Such their activity seems to make Harley-Davidson riders more energetic.
I have decided to come again. With my XL1200R ,of course.
Charles-san was presented from organizer Jonny with a gift who has come all the way from Holand to Kobe.
It was one of the highest points of the meeting.
"VIRGIN HARLEY" stickers are offered to sell as a way of supporting the charity of Foundation for Orphans from Automobile Accidents. Normally, they are given out free of charge, but It's nice if it could be of some help.
Taking a pictures of the group photo was an exciting time. Check this out a great number of Harley riders. Why dont't you come to CCM!s of every part.
To Nana who came here riding on her 883, Jonny presented award of merit (this is it on her back shouldering. Sentences are written by Kansai dialect.).
