The Harley Owners Group (HOG) is a sponsored community marketing club, operated by Harley- Davidson for enthusiasts of that brand’s motorcycles. The Harley Owners Group was created in 1983 as a way to build longer-lasting and stronger relationships with Harley-Davidson’s customers, by making ties between the company, its employees, and consumers.
