Harleys, Tibetan culture hit the road

When the members of the Tibetan Harley motorcycle team Garuda are together, they are confused whenever a phone rings, because they all have the same ringtone - the sound of a Harley motorcycle.

The team's nine members have gathered regularly since 2016 because of their love for Harley-Davidson motorcycles. They come from very different walks of life in the city, such as teachers, civil servants, journalists and bar and restaurant owners.

All of them own at least one Harley. At least twice a month in the summer, they ride on their Harleys to various monasteries or go to picnics in nearby valleys, making for an eye-catching scene on the streets of ancient Lhasa, the capital of the Tibet autonomous region. Such rides often attract more than 20 people.
