Panther Creek HOG - Ladies of Harley (LOH)
WHAT IS LADIES OF HARLEY?
Ladies of Harley (LOH) is a program sponsored by the Harley Owners Group to support women motorcycle enthusiasts (both riders and passengers). It is not a separate organization within HOG, but was established to encourage women to become more active in HOG and their local chapters. REMEMBER: You don’t have to have your own bike to be a member of LOH. We encourage ladies to participate in Chapter events as well as in functions specifically for ladies.
How do you become a member of Ladies of Harley? You must first join the National Harley Owners Group as either an associate or full member, and then you can join our local chapter. Ladies of Harley membership also allows you to participate in all LOH activities at various HOG rallies and events. And there are no additional dues required to be a Ladies of Harley member.
Ladies of Harley offers members a special embroidered patch and pin during the first year of membership, and each renewal year LOH members receive an LOH pin indicating the year of membership.
Ladies of Harley is an additional benefit to better serve members' needs — a "welcoming committee" — for new members to feel at home in their new endeavor. 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.
WHY WOMEN RIDE
The list of reasons why women decide to ride Harley-Davidson® motorcycles is as long as the open road itself. Here are some common reasons why women decide to climb into the saddle.
Adventure: There aren't many options left for the person seeking pure, unadulterated adventure. Luckily, the excitement-hungry can still climb on a Harley-Davidson® and ride off into the sunset, finding the exhilaration they crave, and discovering new sights and experiences on the open road.
Camaraderie: No other motorcycle company has helped forge as many relationships as Harley-Davidson. All over the world, Harley riders can find a sense of community and companionship with other riders. Organizations like Harley Owners Group® seek to get riders together to share their experiences on the road. Some of them even end up meeting that special someone, finding a common passion in the excitement of riding.
Freedom: There's nothing like the feeling of climbing atop a rumbling Harley-Davidson and temporarily leaving your responsibilities behind in the dust. When you're on the road, you answer only to yourself. How you spend your time is up to you.
If you have any suggestions on what you would like to have the L.O.H. as a group get involved with or activities you enjoy and would like us to consider, please contact the L.O.H. officer.
