    It gives you discounts on certain things and a place to go for meetings and rides if you are so inclined.
    I never extended the membership that the dealer gives you when you buy a new bike but some others have a use for the HOG membership.

    If you have tow service on your insurance and you don't attend the group rides, it ain't worth much else. They do offer some discounts on certain motels and resturants but I've found that to be a joke sometimes.

    I can go online and book a room for the same price either way. If I book a room with a discount they just jack up the initial price and then deduct the discount.

    I guess since your asking the questions your asking, you don't/haven't used it for anything so, I say save your money for gas.
    If towing interests you can get that with any good insurance.

    I only signed up for HOG as the membership cost was less than the insurance deduction for being a member of it. So, other than that, no real need, but the savings was worth it.

    My buddy belongs to HOG so that he can collect the rally pins. He puts them and anything else that he gets from HOG on eBay.

    I had not joined HOG since I bought a previously owned bike but picked up the magazine in a waiting room lately and there was an article about touring south Louisiana on a Harley which I enjoyed since I live here... Joined just for the magazine but found out I can get discount on insurance and on ATT Wireless, which is the one I use for my cell phone so it may be a good deal... We'll see..... :)

    When HOG first began in 1983 I joined it. All they did was use the money to finance their race team and still do. However they changed a great deal. The state rallies are a lot of fun to go to. If you are a serious rider then you can be kept busy a good part of the year with just those events. In Destin, FL Oct 20th will be the Florida State rally. Destin is a party city with water on both sides of it and a boardwalk of bars and live bands. If you read the HOG site and read the HOG magazine you will find a lot of events and discounts. It isn't for every one but then any thing that is will be a bore.
