The Harley Owners Group® (H.O.G.®) is an organization founded and sponsored by Harley-Davidson Motor Company®. The Group was established to offer motorcycling benefits and services to Harley-Davidson® enthusiasts throughout the world, and to develop a close relationship between the Harley-Davidson® rider, the Harley-Davidson® Dealership, and Harley-Davidson Motor Company®. The opportunity for an authorized Harley-Davidson® Dealership to start an independent chapter affiliated with the Harley Owners Group® is offered to bring members together for the common interest of promoting motorcycling activities. As a benefit of membership, a H.O.G.® member may join any chartered H.O.G.® chapter. The intent of the chapter is to “Ride and Have Fun” with like-minded individuals who have a passion for riding Harley-Davidson® motorcycles and the Harley-Davidson® brand. The chapter shall be a family-oriented, non-political and non-religious organization.
