Q. I have an idea for a C.H.O.G ride or event, who should I pass my suggestion to?

A. If you have a suggestion for an event or ride, the best person to pass your suggestion to is the Activities Officer and/or the Head Road Captain. He/She/They may even ask you to assist in organising the event/ride. The more information you can pass on with your suggestion, the better chance it has of becoming an event on the Chapter calendar.

Q. I have International H.O.G membership, does that make me a Chapter member?

A. No. To become a chapter member you will need to be an International H.O.G member first. If you are not a chapter member you can still participate in some of the chapter events/activities. There are three levels of events;

  1. Open - Events open to all Chapter and International H.O.G members and invited guests,

  2. Closed - Events open to Chapter members and one guest per member previously advised and approved by the Director, and

  3. Member - Events open to Chapter members only.

Q. I can't make it every Saturday, will this effect my membership?

A. Not at all. We all have lives outside of H.O.G and these should come first. Make it out when you can to socialise, ride and have fun.

Q. I'm nervous about coming along for the first time, what's the easiest way to start meeting members?

A. It can't be easier! Just approach ANYONE wearing a H.O.G. patched vest or blue C.H.O.G. T-Shirt and say G'day. There is also an information & merchandise desk set up at the shop each Saturday manned by a couple of members. If that is still a daunting prospect, speak to one of the shop staff and they will introduce you to a member. We are more then happy to tell you more about C.H.O.G. and H.O.G. and introduce you to other members.

Q. Can I bring my family along?

A. C.H.O.G. aims to be a social environment for friends AND family. Bring your partner on the back of the bike .. OR .. If you can't fit an entire family on the bike, your partner can always drive in with the kids.

Q. My wife / girlfriend would like to join but doesn't own a Harley, what can we do?

A. You can always get your wife / girlfriend to join as an associate member. They can actively participate in all C.H.O.G. and H.O.G. events as well as things like "H.O.G. Miles". Don't forget to sign them up for "Ladies of Harley" (L.O.H.) too.

Canberra Chapter, until recently, have been the only chapter to actively encourage the female members to join in on L.O.H. rides by simply jumping in the car and joining the adventure. L.O.H. Canberra will organise rides (which all C.H.O.G. members can participate in) and encourage maximum attendance by allowing members to bring their car if they aren't licensed to ride.

Q. How often does C.H.O.G. meet and where?

A. There are four times that C.H.O.G. meet, they are:

  1. Weekly Social Meets - C.H.O.G. meet every Saturday at Robbo's. These are not compulsory meetings but a chance for members to come together regularly whether it be to chat over a coffee, enjoy some lunch at the weekly BBQ or head off on a ride. The main point is to have fun. If you can't make it every Saturday that is not a problem, just come along when you can.

  2. Monthly General Meeting - On the first Thursday of each month, C.H.O.G. hold their monthly meeting a the Eastlakes club. This is a chance for members to find out what will happen and where the club is headed over the next month. Also enjoy a meal and drink at the club before or after the meeting. The meeting kicks off at 7pm, be there early if you'd like to enjoy a meal before hand.

  3. Rides and Events - Keep an eye on the events calendar for timings and locations for coming C.H.O.G. events. The focus of activities is to "Ride and Have Fun". Events and Rides will also be posted on the notice board in the cafe at Robbo's.

  4. Whenever we can - There is nothing stopping members from getting together and riding and socialising whenever they can. (NB Any ride not advertised or approved by the appropriate committee members is not a C.H.O.G. sanctioned ride).
