More women than ever before are enjoying the world of motorcycling either as a rider or pillion and there may be a misconception about ‘Ladies of Harley’ (LOH) so let’s clarify what LOH is, and how it is vital to any Harley Owners Group (H.O.G.®) Chapter.
LOH is a program sponsored by the H.O.G.® to support all female motorcycle enthusiasts – riders and pillions – and help them become more active members of H.O.G.® and their local Chapters. You must be a member of H.O.G.® to be affiliated with LOH.
Although LOH is free of charge to active HOG members, Ladies of Harley affiliation is not automatic, so if you would like to join contact the national HOG office.
LOH offers members a special embroidered patch and pin during their first year of membership, and on each annual renewal LOH members receive a pin indicating the year of membership.
LOH should be seen as an additional benefit designed to better serve member’s needs, a “welcoming committee” for new members to feel at home in their new endeavour, and not a separatist group – rather one trying to encourage more women to be involved in an activity that was traditionally male dominated.
While more and more women are riding their own bikes, non-riders should not feel intimidated or excluded.
While the LOH officer and members of LOH can organize events that may be more appealing to women ALL members of the chapter must be welcome to participate and indeed this is an opportunity for the men to pay back your patience!
LOH membership allows you to not only participate locally, but also in all the LOH activities at various H.O.G.® rallies and events. These may include workshops, seminars, and other special events.
For more information and join in the fun contact our LOH Officer.
