lohsideLadies of Harley (L.O.H.) is a program sponsored by the Harley Owners Group to encourage female members to become more involved in Harley Davidson motorcycles, H.O.G. and local chapter activities and rides.

Brisbane HOG enthusiastically encourages women to join in on our events and come on our rides, although L.O.H. members do not have to be riders. L.O.H. membership is open to all female motorcycle enthusiasts and whether you are riding or a pillion – ladies are all welcome.

There are a lot of misconceptions about Ladies of Harley. L.O.H. is not a separate group from H.O.G. but simply an added benefit for female members. Once you have become a full or associate HOG member you only need to fill in an application form to become a L.O.H. member. There is no further cost involved even though you will receive many extra benefits, such as an embroidered L.O.H. patch, a bronze LOH pin for each year of membership, You will also qualify to participate in extra programs such as ABCs of Touring and the HOG Mileage Program just for starters.

When an event is labelled ‘L.O.H.’ it does not mean that it’s for ladies only, men are always welcome and encouraged to attend and support their ladies. It simply means that the event has been organised by L.O.H.

Brisbane L.O.H. is where lasting friendships can be made, where laughter is heard and where wonderful memories are made. It’s where our ladies come together to share their common interest in Harley-Davidson motorcycles.

Why Women Ride?

There are lots of reasons why women decide to ride a Harley and that list is as long as the open road itself. Here are some of the common reasons why women decide to climb into the saddle – even after being a pillion for years!

Adventure – There aren’t many options left for the person seeking pure, unadulterated adventure. Luckily, the excitement-hungry can still climb on their Harley and ride off into the sunset, finding excitement and exhilaration and discovering new sights and experiences by riding the open road.

Camaraderie – No other motorcycle company has helped forge as many relationships as Harley-Davidson through H.O.G. and L.O.H. All over the world, Harley riders are finding a sense of community and companionship with other riders who are seeking to get 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, roaring off safely and temporarily leaving all of your everyday 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.
