H.O.G.® has been hitting the open road for more than three decades. Harley-Davidson® established the Harley Owners Group® in 1983 in response to a growing desire by Harley riders for an organized way to share their passion and show their pride. The concept was so popular that within just two years, 49 local chapters had sprouted around the USA, with a total membership of 60,000.
H.O.G.s have a taste for adventure, rebellion, attitude and freedom. That’s just how we like it. When you’re a member, all that’s left is to let out the clutch and hit the throttle.
The group was created to enhance the experience of owning a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle by offering access to a host of benefits and services associated with ownership of the world’s most famous motorcycle. These include the club magazine (H.O.G.® magazine), the invaluable Touring Map, access to emergency roadside recovery services, rental programmes, preferential access to goods and services, and much, much more.
H.O.G. now has about a million members around the world with more than 100,000 in Europe making it the largest factory-sponsored motorcycle enthusiast organisation in the world. . For your interest, H.O.G member are an average age of 47, 81% Male.
