The Harley Davidson Owners Group

If you own a Harley Davidson and are not a member of the Harley Davidson Owners Group, you are missing out. Jim and I are both H.O.G members and love the benefits that you get when you belong to the Harley Davidson Owners Group.

Created in 1983, the Harley Davidson Owners Group was started to build stronger and longer lasting relationships with Harley Davidson customers. The ties created by the consumers, the employees and the Harley Davidson company have helped boost the brand while focusing on the pride and authenticity of being American made. Harley Davidson Owners Group members will typically spend about 30 percent more on Harley Davidson clothing and accessories and Harley Davidson sponsored events.

Every Harley Davidson dealership, both in the United States and overseas, has the opportunity to become a sponsor for a local Harley Davidson Owners Group chapter. Not all dealerships do, but a Harley Davidson Owners Group cannot start a chapter without a dealer sponsorship. Until 2014, only one chapter per Harley Davidson dealership was allowed. This was expanded to two chapters per Harley Davidson dealership. Should the dealership that is sponsoring a chapter close, the chapter can continue as long as there is permission from Harley Davidson.

Harley Davidson Owners Group members organize events throughout the year, produce a newsletter, and usually elect officers from within their own chapter. Most of the events that are organized by H.O.G are ride related. Harley Davidson Owners Group chapters are managed by members who volunteer to collect dues in order to subsidize event and administrative running costs.

Most of the Harley Davidson Group Owners events are for members only with guests of the chapter members required to sign a waiver. Some H.O.G chapters host rallies annually both collectively and individually.

The Harley Davidson Owners Group offers several benefits to its chapter members including roadside assistance.

Other benefits of the H.O.G. include Harley Davidson insurance, Best Western Rides Rewards, motorcycle shipping, and monthly wireless savings with AT & T. The H.O.G Mileage Recognition incentive is another benefit that allows members to earn patches and pins for racking up miles on their Harley Davidson.

Jim and I love our Harley Davidson chapter and encourage other riders to find a Harley Davidson Owners Group chapter close by.
