The Rules             

Shown below are excerpts from the annual H.O.G Chapter Charter. They help briefly explain what a local H.O.G. Chapter is all about and how we're guided. Be sure to click on "About Us" below to learn more about Chicago H.O.G.


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.

The opportunity 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. The goal of each chapter is to generate an increased level of enthusiasm for riding Harley-Davidson motorcycles. The chapter shall be a family-oriented and nonpolitical organization.


The purpose of the local chapter shall be to promote responsible motorcycling activities for Harley Owners Group (national) members by conducting chapter activities and encouraging participation in other

Chapter activities and operations shall be conducted in a manner consistent with the family-oriented, nonpolitical philosophy.


The Harley Owners Group International Office, a division of Harley-Davidson Motor Company, is the governing body of all H.O.G. chapters. Each chapter affiliated with the Harley Owners Group shall be a separate and independent organization providing services to their own members on a "not-for-profit" basis.

Affiliated chapters shall be named after the respective city or locale of the sponsoring dealer. H.O.G. shall have the right to approve chapter names.


All Harley Owners Group members may join any affiliated chapter. An expired membership in H.O.G. automatically terminates local chapter membership and any associated memberships. It shall be the responsibility of any person applying for, or renewing, membership in a local chapter to provide proof of his or her national membership as a condition of eligibilty for membership.


Chapter events and activities are the sole responsibility of the local chapter. These events may include any family-oriented, safe activities that promote a positive image of the sport of motorcycling and that appeal to the chapter membership.
