H.O.G. and the Ladies of Harley
Ladies of Harley (LOH) is a program sponsored by the National Harley Owners Group (H.O.G.) to support women motorcycle enthusiasts - both drivers and passengers. It is not a separate organization within H.O.G., but rather was established to encourage women to become more active in H.O.G. and their local chapters.
You don't have to have your own bike to be a LOH member. Associate Members may also be a Ladie of Harley. We encourage women to participate in chapter events as well as functions sponsored by our chapter’s LOH members. While the LOH® officer and members of LOH® can organize events that may be more appealing to women, ALL members of the chapter are welcome to participate. That means guys, you can come too!
Ladies of Harley promotes participation by women in the Harley-Davidson world. Sometimes sports activities can become dominated by men. H.O.G. was founded with the idea of promoting the enjoyment of riding Harley-Davidson motorcycles to everyone. LOH Provides an opportunity for ladies to enjoy riding and participating in Chapter events secure in the knowledge that they are equal and welcomed members in the chapter. LOH is where lasting friendships are formed, where laughter is heard and where memories are made. It's where people like you come together to share their common interest in Harley-Davidson® motorcycles. We look forward to meeting you and riding together.
Ladies of Harley offers members a special embroidered patch and pin during the first year of membership. Each renewal year, LOH members receive a LOH pin indicating the year of membership. You must be an active female full or associate member of H.O.G. to be affiliated. Although LOH is free-of-charge to active H.O.G. members, the benefit is not automatic.
If you would like to join the Ladies of Harley, just check the box on the National H.O.G. Membership Application. If you are already a H.O.G. member you can choose the "Manage Membership" tab in the "My Membership" section on the National HOG website.
About 40% of Berkshire Hills H.O.G. Members are Ladies. Many with their own bikes and some are passengers.
