Our Chapter plans
numerous group rides and activities every week throughout the riding
season, but we have eight that are designated as main Chapter Events.
You can earn a Chapter Event Pin for attending at least half of the
and half of the Chapter Events listed below. If
you're new to Kenosha HOG, you will want to read about each of these
events and mark your calendars so you don't miss them! Exact dates
and times may change so check the
Calendar and watch your HOG Breath
Newsletters for updates on all the rides, meetings and other chapter
What are you
doing on New Years Day? How about jumping into Lake Michigan?
Better yet, how about watching a group of other people jump in Lake
Michigan? It is really something to see when they push the blocks
of floating ice aside to make enough room for about 100 wild and crazy
individuals to frolic in the lake. Every year we kick off our
riding season (some riding their motorcycles, but most riding in their
warm cars) with the annual Polar Bear Ride. Bundle up and join us
for some fresh air and watch the spectacle. We meet at 10 am at
Uke's and afterwards head over to a local restaurant for
a warm breakfast with friends.
still pretty cold for riding, but who doesn't love a great bowl of chili
to keep warm? Put your cooking skills up against fellow HOG
members by entering our Chili Cook Off contest. Just fire up your
crock pot and show us what you got! Or, If you're a better taster
than cook, just hang around after the March meeting to enjoy
everybody else's chili skills and help judge the contest. The March
Meeting and Chili Cook Off are held at Uke's.
Out Ride is our first real group ride of the season, so everybody
polishes up their bikes (ok maybe not everybody) and joins their biker
buddies for a great ride. There is nothing like breaking out on
your first ride of the season and taking it all in. The Road
Captains put together a nice route to help hone up on our skills, so
make sure you plan on joining us!
Baraboo is our annual overnight Memorial Ride
that takes place the weekend after Mother's Day. We take the same
route prepared by Ron Young many years ago. Ron was killed by a
drunk driver shortly after leading this ride on his way to Uke's to pick
up his new bike. Those members who were with him on that first
ride, decided to make it an annual event, to pay a tribute to Ron and
all the members who have passed on since. You will meet many
members on this ride and have plenty of time to either relax and visit
with friends, or get to know new ones. Some head out on an
afternoon ride in the beautiful country surrounding Baraboo. There
is also a casino nearby if you feel lucky. Sunday morning you can
take any route home that you wish, but many of us meet for breakfast
before heading out.
Nanc have hosted an open house at Uke's Harley Davidson during the first weekend in June for
many years. Now they have added a September open house as well,
where our Chapter holds our annual bike raffle. Members are
encouraged to join in the festivities such as food, entertainment, demo
rides, and of course great deals on new and used bikes, clothing and accessories.
This is a fun ride that combines motorcycling
and poker for a great way to spend a day with friends. We pick a
card at each stop, and build a hand along the way. At the last
stop we enjoy lunch and tally up the hands to see who has the best.
Winners are awarded cash prizes and usually buy everybody lunch....
In July, our meeting is held outside and we
have a good old fashioned family picnic. One of the Road Captains
will lead a ride over while volunteers start setting up and cooking a
huge feast. This is an event for the whole family, so bring the
kids and be prepared to have some fun!
Fall Color Rustic Road Ride
This ride takes us on some of the most scenic
country roads in Southeast Wisconsin, when the trees are at peak color.
After taking in the beautiful scenery, we end up at a local Apple
Orchard just in time to enjoy a great lunch grilled to perfection by our
director and his grilling team. After lunch, we tally up the stops
from the Stamp Books that have been turned in, and draw the winning
books to award the prizes.
We hope to see you during these Chapter Events,
and don't forget to sign in at each meeting so you can earn your Chapter
