Ready to meet some great people who love riding Motorcycles as much as you do? Do you like to Ride and Have Fun?… Then we would like to invite you to become a member of the Kenosha HOG Chapter!
How to Join
Joining is easy. All National HOG Members and Associate Members are eligible to join our local chapter. Click on the Membership Enrollment link to print and fill out the form needed to join for the first time or to renew your membership, which starts in January each year. Each Member needs to fill out the form whether a Full or Associate Member. Dues are $25 for a Full Member and $20 for an Associate Member per year. You can either mail your completed application to: Uke’s Harley Davidson, 5595 120th Ave, Kenosha Wisconsin 53144, drop iit off at Uke’s Harley Davidson, or bring it with you to the next Chapter Meeting. Check the Calendar for the exact meeting date and time.
How do you get to know other Chapter Members? Walking into a meeting with a lot of people can be intimidating, but we all have a common interest…riding and having fun! One of the best ways to get to know people is to volunteer to help out at a Chapter function or on a committee. Don’t want to volunteer? Join us on a ride, big or small depending on your comfort level. The Bike Blessing draws over 1500 bikes and is our largest ride, but weekly stamp book rides usually have less than 15 riders. If you’re new to group riding, make sure you join Bob Clampit, our Safety Officer for a New Member Ride. Bob goes over Group Riding skills and then leads a local ride to offer new members some experience riding with others. There are several New Member Rides scheduled after Chapter Meetings so check the Calendar for dates and times or reach out to Bob. You also will want to review the Group Riding section on our Safety page.
Some of our events and rides are “Open” to anyone including non-members. If you are not a member of our Chapter, you must sign an Event Release form in order to participate. The Calendar will designate if an event is “Open” or “Closed” to non-members. “Closed” rides do allow guests to accompany a member, with a signed Event Release. Minors under the age of 18 must have their parent or guardian sign the Event Release Minors form in order for them to participate. Click on the links to the left to print either form, fill it out, and bring it with you to the event.
Meetings are held the second Sunday of each month and are full of valuable information for all of our members. Make sure you check the Calendar for the exact place and time, as it does change depending on the month. At each meeting there will be a sign in sheet by the door. Don’t forget to sign in so you get credit for attending and can earn your Chapter Event Pin. See the Chapter Events page for details.
You can show your pride by outfitting your vest or jacket with the HOG Logo and Kenosha Chapter Rocker. For many HOG members, their vest or jacket becomes a record of all the places they have been and events they attend. Our store has patches and pins for sale at each of the Chapter Meetings, so be sure and check out what’s available, see Kevin for any purchases.
Our monthly Newsletter is called HOG Breath. Our Editor, April Dean, gathers information from Officers and members to write it each month, and sends it out by email. Anytime you have an article you would like to include in the Newsletter, just send it to April and she’ll take care of it for you. You can also find the current and past issues on the Members Only section by logging in.
Gean, is our Activities Officer and comes up with some fun activities throughout the year. The calendar is a team effort on the board, but be sure to keep an eye on it to stay current with the latest events.
Joan Lesko, our Sunshine Lady keeps track of our birthdays and anniversaries, making sure they are remembered in our Newsletter each month. Don’t forget to include your special dates on your Membership Enrollment Form!
