Harlistas Boricua

Harlistas Boricua California

This past weekend I was made aware of a social motorcycle group in Southern California known as Harlistas Boricua. Founded in August 2010 and the first of its kind in California, Harlistas Boricua was started by a group of Puerto Ricans who ride Harley Davidson motorcycles to various places in California and share our Puerto Rican culture with whomever they come across in the process. They ride most weekends and during their events they make it a point to ride to different Puerto Rican establishments or restaurants. Aside from the love of riding, the club was created to celebrate and introduce the culture, history and music of Puerto Rico with everyone. The brothers of Harlistas Boricua are from different walks of life. Some are business men, active duty servicemen, law enforcement and retirees. This group is not an outlaw-type of motorcycle club and is family oriented and they welcome anyone, even those of non Puerto Rican descent, to join them!

Harlistas Boricua

Harlistas Boricua’s 1 year anniversary is coming up on Saturday, August 20th and they will be riding to Mofongos in North Hollywood followed by a run up Pacific Coast Highway to the Ventura county line. Of course EVERYONE is invited to help them celebrate this history in the making!
