25 Years !!!

From Our Director

Welcome to Orange County New York Harley Owners Group (H.O.G.) Chapter,

We are a family oriented group of motorcyclists of varying skill levels who share a passion for Harley-Davidson motorcycles and the open road. The Harley Owners Group is a worldwide motorcycle organization with more than 1,000,000 members.

I have been riding since 2001 and currently ride a 2003 Black Heritage Softail Classic. I have ridden a Harley from day one. The main reasons I bought a Harley-Davidson motorcycle include it being American-made, and the way it sound and feels when I ride and, the camaraderie and “family” that is H.O.G.

What are H.O.G. Chapters? Simply put, Chapters are a family of H.O.G.® members gathering at a local level "To Ride and Have Fun!" Last year our Chapter had many different types of rides. These rides included something for everyone:

Breakfast, lunch and dinner rides
Multi-day rides
Rides for various skill levels
Rides to motorcycle shows and Rallies
Charitable rides
Rides to just ride
Rides to nowhere

If you are interested in riding and making new friends, I invite you to join us. Our rides and events are listed on our Events calendar.

Join us for a ride! Guests are welcome to come along on a few rides. After that I hope you will decide to become a member and continue to ride with us as a new member. Joining is simple. The first requirement is that you own a Harley-Davidson motorcycle. Next, you must be a National H.O.G. member. Once you have your National H.O.G. number, complete our membership form and submit it to us with the $24 annual dues. I hope you will join us soon!

If I can answer any questions, feel free to contact me at director@ocnyhog-officers.net

Keep the paint up and the rubber down,
