Wow! I can’t believe 2016 is coming to a close. It seems like yesterday I was riding my Street Glide Special to Canada for the Ontario H.O.G. Rally. Fortunately, the weather has been decent here in Milwaukee and a few weeks ago we were able ride to buy breakfast at the VA hospital for some of our veterans on Veteran’s day. I had the honor of meeting Gary Wetzel, a Congressional Medal of Honor recipient. What a great ride that was!
We’ve accomplished some great things this year (2016). We had some fantastic H.O.G. rallies! We launched some new HOG programs. Some that will make chapter administration easier and some that are just really cool (like free admission to the H-D Museum for all H.O.G. members and the new Mileage program pages on HOG.com. And we are not done, in 2017 we are bringing back the National H.O.G. rally and there will be more things coming. Finally, at H.O.G. Officer Training, we had a few main points that we to stressed. I wanted to close the year reiterating a couple of those points 1. RIDE MORE (and who can argue with that), 2. HAVE MORE FUN (again no arguments), 3. if it doesn’t have to do with points 1 or 2, seriously consider why we are doing it. We need continue to focus most of our energy on riding our Harley-Davidson motorcycles!!!
I cannot thank you enough for all of your hard work and dedication in planning and executing great rides and events for your members!
Have a fantastic holiday season; I look forward to seeing you on the road!
