“I NEVER REALLY QUESTIONED WHY I RIDE, COZ FOR ME IT IS AS BASIC AS BREATHING!”…UNKNOWN
There seems to be a lot of misconceptions about L.O.H.® (Ladies of Harley). Ladies of Harley is a program sponsored by the Harley Owners Group to support women motorcycle enthusiasts. Notice I did not say Riders. It does not matter whether you are a passenger or ride your own, you can be a part of LOH! Ladies of Harley was established to encourage women to become more active in H.O.G.® and in their local chapters.
Did you know being a member of Ladies of Harley is FREE? It is not, however, automatic. If you are a national H.O.G.® member, you can join, regardless of whether you are a full, life, or associate member. You must contact H.O.G. and tell them you’d like to be a member of LOH. Just call 1-800-CLUB-HOG or go to Harley Owners Group, log into the members only area, then go to Update Membership Profile. Click the yes option for LOH and you’re done! After you’ve joined, you will receive a LOH embroidered patch and an LOH pin each year in addition to the annual H.O.G. patch and pin.
100 years ago, mother and daughter Avis and Effie Hotchkiss rode 9,000 miles across the country from New York to San Francisco. To pay homage to these iconic women, rider-photographer Lanakila “Lana” MacNaughton and her closest female friends embarked on a similar route, doing it their own way, and using Lana’s camera to capture the journey. The four-week ride began July 3 in Brooklyn and ended in San Francisco.
