"In Winter, I plot and plan. In Spring I move." ~Henry Rollins
Winter Carnival Fun!!
Lean into the season, get outside & enjoy yourself in the name of winter fun. The carnival is what happens when you take Saranac Lake and throw it into a cauldron, sprinkle in a clever theme, and boil it down until all that’s left is a sweet syrup of feisty good humor.

Join your H.O.G.® Group on  February 2nd  for some  Arctic Golf - Carnival’s frozen mini golf course  (a hit with adults and kids alike!). 

We'll meet up in Adams Center & Carthage to head up the mountain, to be there by around 12 noon. Or, if you just want to meet there that's fine too! This is an outdoor event, and there will be some walking involved, so you'll want to dress for the weather.

If you're interested in going, please contact Dawn ( by email , call the shop at 315-583-6177, or on the WhatsApp -see below) no later than January 25th.  
Make Every Mile Count... Even More
Many of you already know about the H.O.G.® Ride 365 Mileage Recognition Program, where you earn badges, patches and pins for Lifetime & Yearly miles. And you might have already heard about the two new challenges for 2020: 10 Rides for '20 and 50 Rides, 1 Nation .

Announced just last week:
Now you can get 1 point for each mile ridden on your Harley® Motorcycle on your H-D® Visa® Card. Points you can then turn into Harley® Gear -earn 2500 points and trade 'em for $25 H-D™ Gift Card which you can then use towards Motorclothes®, Genuine Parts & Accessories, Service and more. Click the link to get the Full Rules .

Although, just a reminder:
FX Thunder H.O.G.® Chapter Members
have their own HOG Thunder Rewards !

That's where you get points for doing what you love: Hanging with Friends, Riding and Having Fun. Points you can redeem at the register.

Each Dollar Spent* = 1 point
Each New Chapter Member You Enroll = 25 points
Each Event/Workshop at the Dealership You Attend = 50 points
Each Monthly Get Together = 100 points
Each Ride you go on that leaves from FXCHD® = 150 points
Each time you Volunteer at Select Events = 200 points
Each Referral that ends with a bike Purchase° = 500 points

*For each dollar you spend on regularly priced and sale Parts, Motorclothes®, Accessories, Service Parts, Labor, and Special Order you will earn 1 point. The points for Special Order items will be given once the item(s) have been picked up. Purchases of items that are through the H-D.com/store, Harley-Davidson® Amazon store, non-inventory items and vehicle purchases at FXCHD® will not be counted.
° Each time a FX Thunder H.O.G.® Chapter Member refers someone who then purchases a motorcycle from us, that chapter member will receive 500 points. Mention of the referral must be made at the time of purchase, and the best way to do that is for the both of you to come in at the same time. Prior purchases do not qualify.

2020 Overnight Trip: Kitzhof Inn in Dover, VT July 17-19
The best motorcycle group trips are full of thrilling, curvy roads and fantastic views. Evenings are laid-back (or maybe a little rowdy), full of friends old and new, and definitely best when spent somewhere that “gets it.” That’s Kitzhof Inn !!

Group packages include one Kitzhof-hosted dinner (most popular is a full outdoor BBQ) or maybe we'll try the “Italian Night”, plus there are several bar/restaurants within walking distance. There is also a full market across the street for stocking up on snacks – and remember to bring your own for the BYOB-bar fridge for our use.​
Both Simon & Alison (owners of the inn) love to ride! They have been touring the Northeast U.S. and Canada since 2005, so they know some stuff! Their “AutoMoto” book has many researched rides with tips on where to stop for lunch and rest breaks. When requested at booking, they’ll lead rides so we can take in the great sights, fresh air and beautiful, open Vermont roads without worrying about directions. All of the routes loop from and to the Kitzhof Inn, and they ride them regularly to stay current on road conditions and attractions.​

​​ To get the group rate – which includes a welcome reception when we arrive, breakfast both mornings, and dinner Saturday night – we’ll need at least 20 people. Double Occupancy = $298, Single Occupancy (limited availability) = $223.  Sign-up with Dawn (dawnfxchd@yahoo.com, call 315-583-6177, or on the WhatsApp) no later than our March Get Together, March 7th.
