A Message from our Chapter Members:
Congratulations! You’ve purchased one of the best bikes in the world (OK, yeah, we’re a little biased!). You’ve been out riding for a bit now, and it’s great…but you wonder…could this be better? That answer is YES!
That’s where the Liberty H.O.G. Chapter comes in. We love to ride, we love to eat, and we love to hang out with each other. We want you to join us and see what we can do for you. Here’s just a few of the things you’re missing by not being a member:
The Liberty H.O.G. chapter is filled with people from all walks of life. We have mechanics, nurses, first responders, business people, real estate agents, veterinarians and more! And, we all have one big thing in common…true passion for Harley-Davidson motorcycles and riding them all over this great land of ours. During the main part of the season (sometime in March until sometime in November) we have weekly rides to some pretty cool destinations in New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania. We typically ride on Sunday mornings, but we occasionally do rides on other days as well. If you’re new to group riding, don’t worry, we have you covered! Twice a month on Saturdays we have a New Member ride. It’s about 30 miles or so, and you will be riding with some of our more experienced riders and Road Captains to help guide you along the way.
Riding for fun isn’t all we do. Over the course of the season, we do several charity rides for some great local causes. At the end of our season, we host one of the biggest Toy Runs in the State of New Jersey. We have had over 750 bikes for this event, and man... there’s nothing cooler than looking in your rear view and seeing just a giant train of bikes behind you!
We also do some non-riding family friendly events as well! We have a Chapter Picnic in the summer with food and games and just good ol’ hanigin’ out time. We usually have a couple of parties at the beginning of the season, around Halloween, and one for the holidays. During the time of year when we can’t ride, we will do some “field trips” to Medieval Times, indoor go-cart racing, indoor mini golf, and some other cool stuff. It’s just a good way to visit one another when bike riding weather isn’t optimal.
The best thing we can tell you is this: we are a family! With some of our members having many years of riding experience, bike maintenance, and knowledge of some of the best routes in the state, you’ll have access to a living encyclopedia of knowledge in all things bike related. We help each other out all the time, hang out with each other, and look forward to adding more brothers and sisters to our family.
And here’s the kicker: we have a great sponsor in Liberty Harley-Davidson or Rahway! There’s Bike Nights, classes in the off season, mileage contests, different tournaments and a lot more that they encourage us to attend. They want us to be part of the dealership family!
SO…what’s not to love? Well…COVID for starters. A lot of the stuff that was mentioned above happens in a non-pandemic environment. That’s the bad news. The good news is... it's almost over and we we still ride! WE HAVE BEEN RIDING! WE HAVE HAD LIVE IN PERSON MEETINGS! BIKE NIGHTS ARE BACK!!!! So soon we will be back to "normal" and then it's on!!! This paragraph will have to be rewritten yet once again, and I will be more than happy to do it!
All, that being said, this is still a great Chapter, and we do as much as we can within the guidelines of what is acceptable. So, if you’re feeling like something is missing while you’re out there putting miles down and you wish you had a friend (or 50) to share that experience with, then come join us! Email one of our Officers, check out or Facebook page for membership drives, or just walk up to one of us if you see us at Liberty Harley-Davidson in Rahway, and let us know you’re interested. We’d love to have you!
