Current Ride: 2016 Street Glide Special

"I started out riding mini-bikes and moved on to dirt bikes, I love them things. I had a couple other brand street bikes but bought my first Harley Low Rider in 2007. I've bought 4 Harley's since then and currently ride a 2016 Street Glide Special. I love to ride because it allows me to release a bunch of stress, spend quality time with my wife and some very good friends. Riding is the closest thing to being free I can think of."

Jonathan  | Assistant Director

Current Ride: 2010 Ultra Classic

"I first started riding when I was 19 while station at Fort Bliss, Tx  for training in my job specialty in the Army. I had a friend who had a Kawasaki 500 which he didn't ride very much and told me I could ride as long as I didn't wreck it. That was the beginning and what fueled my desire to own my own which took me several years to accomplish. I purchased my first Harley while stationed in Germany it is the same bike I currently ride a 2010 Ultra Classic . There is a wonderful feeling when you are on your bike with a group of riders you call your brothers and sisters and you all share the joy of being on the open road looking for that next adventure that will be a memory that you all can share in. My wife and I have been a part of the Tifton HOG Group since 2014 and we both feel that there's nothing better than having the wind in your face cruising down the road with friends who share in the joy of the ride. We look at the THOG just as God does because we are all brothers and sisters in God's eyes.    ."

Current Ride: 2016 Street Glide Special (Yep, Black)

"Growing up as a youngster I was fascinated by and rode anything with two wheels that I could throw a leg over, be it bicycles, mini bikes or dirt bikes. As I started "adulting" the mini bikes were long gone and along came a few bigger motorcycles and just about anything I could get my hands on that would propel me forward. Luckily I had some real good friends back in the day that would let me "borrow" their motors and take them for a spin. Then I blinked, life got in the way and would remain in the way for a long time. Fast forward many years to 2014 and as I was still "adulting", and after I completed the MSF basic riders course (which I highly recommend by the way/and yes I passed) I bought my first (me owned) motorcycle, a Kawasaki Vulcan Nomad. A big bagger that was a very comfortable ride on the open road. Then one day in November 2015 on a whim and the arm twisting from a few of my "Harley friends, I test rode a Street Glide. That's when I realized how much better the Street Glide handled compared to the Kawi. So, as my Paul Harvey is still being written I'm adulting but I'm not growing up so come on, join the Tifton HOGs, meet and make some new friends. They're a great bunch of folks to not only ride with but just hang out and have fun with. See ya in the wind! ."

Lisa | Secretary

Current Ride: Back of my Husband’s 2016 CVO Road Glide

""I have been a member of Tifton Harley Owner's Group since 2011.  While I do hold my own motorcycle license I find that I just prefer to ride on the back of my husband’s bike so that I can sit back and take in the sights, feel the wind in my face and lose all my daily cares and not have to worry about keeping the bike on the road.  Over the years we have had the opportunity to meet some wonderful friends in the Harley group.  There is nothing better than the freedom of the open road with good friends.” "

Jocelyn  | Membership

Current Ride: 2013 Street Glide

"I have been a member of Tifton Harley Owners Group since 2008 and have been riding the same amount of time. I have a Street Glide that I love. Riding is the best stress reliever and being a part of this group makes it even better. We have a lot of fun on our rides, during our meetings, parties and trips. I couldn’t ever imagine a better group of people to call my brothers and sisters!"

Dean | Photographer/Web Dude

Current Ride: 2016 Ultra Limited

"I’ve been riding since I was about 12. I bought my first Harley in 2006 and I currently ride a 2016 Ultra Limited. I have my 100,000 HOG miles pin. Just one of the programs that HOG has to offer.  Riding keeps me sane (somewhat)." Being the Web Dude gives me powers that some don't understand, (yet).

Sherry| LOH

Current Ride: 2014 Ultra Limited

"I have been a member of Tifton Harley Owner's Group since 2013. I rode mini bikes and dirt bikes growing up. I have enjoyed all types of motorcycles off and on my whole life. There's not much better than having the wind in your face cruising down the road with friends that I found in this group. One thing is for sure I know I will always have a great friend to call on if needed. I hope you all feel same about me. You don't find friends like this everyday.
