One of the Great Advantages of being a HOG member (well, at least a "national" HOG) is having friends where ever you go. For example, while at the LA leg of the 100th Anniversary Tour, we ran into some HOG members from France. Had a good time telllin' them about drinkin' beer! LOL Well, not really. Although we couldn't understand much of what we were saying to each other, the LOVE of H/D bikes was there and we were friends.
