There is a lot of misconception on what L.O.H. (Ladies of Harley) is. This article is to help clarify what L.O.H. is and how it is vital to any H.O.G. Chapter. Ladies of Harley (L.O.H.) is a program sponsored by the Harley Owners Group (H.O.G.) to support women motorcycle enthusiasts (notice I did not say Rider).
It does not matter whether you ride your own or are a passenger, you can be a part of Ladies of Harley.
L.O.H. was established to encourage women to become more active in H.O.G. and their local chapters. It is not a separate organization but rather another part of the benefits of H.O.G.
It is not a group of woman trying to separate from the men, but rather trying to encourage more women to be involved in an activity that was traditionally male dominated. More and more women are moving from the passenger seat to their own bikes, but we still do not want non-riders to feel intimidated.
L.O.H. membership allows you to not only participate locally, but also in all the L.O.H. activities at various H.O.G. rallies and events. These may include workshops, seminars, and other special events. The only requirement for membership is that you must be a member/associate of the Harley Owners Group, and there is no additional costs. So what does L.O.H. do?
This is where your involvement helps to answer that question. We plan to meet every month where we can go over activities and events that we want to do. We are pleased to announce that we currently have 46 Female Black Mountain Chapter members.
