Six Seven Eight Chapter Members Earn an “Iron Butt”
Congratulations to Gary S., Dave R. Russ W, James B., Bill M. and Julie P. for earning their “Iron Butt” credentials over the May 6th weekend. One group rode to Denver and back, while the other group rode to the Ozarks and back.
And, not to be outdone, Lorraine H. and Melissa C. both decided one morning to go out and earn their”Iron Butt” award on solo rides.
These members really know how to follow the motto of “Ride and Have Fun”. Congratulate them on their accomplishment, and let’s ask them to share their experiences during our next Chapter gathering.
We’ve Ridden in EVERY State
Click on any state to see a list of top rides for that state.
Our members have ridden from one end of the country to the other, covering all 50 states plus Washing D.C. Yes, that includes Alaska and Hawaii. How many states have you ridden in? Let’s fill in the map with all of the states that we have visited on a bike. It doesn’t matter if you were riding solo, or on a rented bike. As long as you were enjoying your ride on a Harley.
Share your list of states that you have ridden in. Or, if it’s easier, which state’s you have yet to visit. Send your list in an email to email@example.com or share it with one of the Chapter officers and we’ll get your states added.
A detailed list of the states that have been visited by members is available in the MEMBERS ONLY section.
We’ve colored in all of the states. Now lets see how many we can transition from red to gold, gold to yellow, and so on. If you’re looking for ride ideas, click on any of the states and a new page will open with top rides for that state.
Chapter Members Have Each Other’s Back
Riding in a group has a number of advantages. Besides enjoying a ride with a fun group of people there is always the fact that others will be there to help if you have trouble while out on a ride.
With the DHDHOG Chapter, the willingess to help each other extends beyond a ride. Our Chapter has started a “volunteers” list to help each other out when there is an unexpected need for assistance. Member Lorraine H. recently had plans to complete a number of yard and garden chores this fall. Unfortunately, a knee injury left her on crutches, and without the ability to complete the work she had planned.
Shirley R., Chapter Director heard about the jam that Lorraine was in and asked Debbie J., Chapter Hospitality Officer to see if we could muster a group to help Lorraine get the chores taken care of. Email and text messages went out on a Saturday afternoon and by 1:00 Sunday afternoon a number of Chapter Members, their family members and Lorraine’s friends got together and knocked out all of the chores in less than an hour. Needless to say, Lorraine was extremely grateful for having her HOG friends jump in and help her out on such short notice.
Members of All Ages are Welcome
Our 2023 riding season has ended. We’ve had some great rides, and had several new members join. Of course, we are always looking to add new members.
Let your riding friends know about our group and invite them to one of our activities or one of our member gatherings. We welcome members of all types and riding skills. Our only requirement is that they are members of the national Harley Owners Group.
