The full-production Harley-Davidson Pan America™ 1250 ridden by Joan Pedrero finishes the demanding elite category of the Raid 1000 Dunas.
Dakar rider Pedrero battles extreme temperatures and snow to take historic finish
A complete production Harley-Davidson Pan America™ 1250 ridden by Dakar rider Joan Pedrero made history by successfully completing the Elite category of the 1000 DUNAS RAID.
From October 22-29, Pedrero demonstrated the exceptional capabilities of Harley-Davidson’s first Adventure Touring model, pushing the bike to its limits in a competition where riding skill, navigation and ultimate reliability went hand in hand.
Pedrero rose to the challenge in the most demanding Elite category, demonstrating the power of the American brand’s model to master the race through Spain and Morocco.
Through the Atlas Mountains
Starting the journey in Granada and crossing the desert of Merzouga, our Pan America™ 1250 was able to go from the snow-capped Atlas Mountains to the extreme heat of Erg Chebbi enduring seven stages of extreme challenges.
The Pan America™ 1250 is a motorcycle born for adventure and on this occasion, with the help of Joan Pedrero, we managed to take the Harley-Davidson experience a step further.
Pedrero said, “I’m thrilled to say that I put a complete stock bike in the 1000 DUNAS RAID. Once again, I had the opportunity to push the Pan America™ 1250 to its limits, demonstrating its ability to cross the most complicated surfaces, and I had the most incredible experience!”
Now all you have to do is ask yourself… What will be the next challenge?
