What is the New Forest Branch?
New Forest Branch is a local motorcycle group made up of
Harley-Davidson owners. This local H.O.G. Chapter is
officially recognised by Harley-Davidson and H.O.G. internationally
and is sponsored by the Southampton Harley-Davidson
How does it all work?
To enable a worldwide network of H.O.G. groups to operate as one
'family', H.O.G. International lay down some clear guidelines that
Local groups must follow. These guidelines are called the
'Annual Charter for H.O.G. Chapters'. A local Chapter such as
New Forest Branch have a formal committee set up to organise and
promote events and benefits to members of the Chapter. This
committee is made up from Harley owners that volunteer their skills
and experience to organise various aspects of the Chapter.
How do I become an International HOG member?
When a rider purchases a new Harley-Davidson motorcycle they are
given their first years' membership to International H.O.G. free,
after this they can renew their subscription annually.
Alternatively, any Harley-Davidson motorcycle owner can apply to
join the International H.O.G. by providing their motorcycle VIN
number and the appropriate membership fee. So, any owner of a
Harley-Davidson motorcycle can be an International H.O.G.
member. Harley-Davidson owners or riders are also able to
join as Associate Members, but must be sponsored by an existing
H.O.G. International Member. More information and membership
forms can be found at www.southamptonharley-davidson.co.uk
How do I join the New Forest Branch?
Firstly, you need to be an International H.O.G. Member.
Then you can join the New Forest Branch by completing an enrolment
form which is available from Southampton Harley-Davidson (contact
details below) or, download a form using the link above.
Complete the form and send it to the membership secretary, you will
then receive confirmation of the initial fee due.
What benefits will I receive as a member of the New Forest Branch?
As an international H.O.G. member you will already be entitled
to a range of benefits from discounts on genuine Harley-Davidson
parts, accessories to travel and insurance benefits. New Forest
Branch will send you a membership card, a pin badge and sew-on
patch to tell fellow riders that you are a member; Full members
will also receive an annual Membership Handbook. In addition
you will be entitled to attend events such as organised rideouts,
social gatherings, fun days and even motorcycle rallies. The
success of such events depends on the support of the Branch Members
and the dedication and time commitment from the Branch Committee…
it's a motorcycling family in the broadest sense.
What is the dealer involvement?
The New Forest Branch operates on a self funding basis (your subscriptions and income from events will enable the Branch to grow and offer further events and benefits to members). Southampton Harley-Davidson are the sponsors of the Branch and have helped support the setting up of our local chapter by underwriting considerable initial costs to provide facilities from bank accounts to membership cards and merchandise stocks. Southampton Harley-Davidson will continue to have close involvement with both the running of the Branch and its events. The dealer is responsible for ensuring that the chapter operates in accordance with the 'Annual Charter for H.O.G. Chapters' and H.O.G. operating policies and can also suspend or revoke memberships.
