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 dealer and Harley-Davidson Motor Company.
Criteria for Chapter Membership
To join Clyde Valley HOG or any other Chapter, you need to fulfil the following criteria.
- Own a Harley
- Be a Member of the HOG organisation
- Enjoy Good Times!
If you aren’t yourself the owner of a Harley, but are maybe the partner or a family member of a HOG member, you can be sponsored by the HOG member to become an Associate member of both HOG and a Chapter. You can then attend events, the Ladies can get involved in LoH and you can ride pillion with fellow chapter members on rides.
Once you are a HOG member, go to our membership page to find the link to sign up to Clyde Valley HOG, Scotland’s friendliest Chapter.
Members of HOG will receive quarterly e-zines, HOG UK Newsletters, and once a year a coffee table-style printed magazine called The Enthusiast. Members also qualify for various discount schemes for example at Hard Rock Cafe and Euro Camps.
HOG Member Programmes
Membership of HOG allows members to participate in various membership programmes such as the Ride 365 Challenge, and ABC’s of Touring challenge.
Ride 365 : We recommend that at least twice per year ( usually early in the year and some time at the end of the year) you register your mileage with HOG*. At predefined increments, you will receive a Patch and Pin commemorating the milestone achievements. In addition, you can ask for your mileage to be added to your chapter total and it will be used in calculating which Chapters both in the UK and Internationally are doing the most Harley miles.
To view your mileage first login to the HOG memberships site here: HOG Member Login
Then go to this Link** and scroll down to access the Member Dashboard.
*Note: Clyde Valley Members should be able to ask for their mileage to be updated by the Customer Service staff at West Coast Harley Davidson. Take a photo of your Odometer and show it at the desk.
**Note: If you access this page without first being logged in, you won’t be able to find the Dashboard panel further down the page, it only becomes visible once logged in!
ABC’s of Touring: ABC’s of Touring is a rider Challenge programme to get you visiting places you maybe wouldn’t go to otherwise. The rules are quite lengthy so we won’t detail them here, however you should enrol to the Challenge on the HOG Dashboard **and get riding. There are various prizes for completing the challenge.
