Plan to arrive on July 12, check the hotel's cancellation policy, and possibly even get trip insurance. For hotels in the area, go to VisitMilwaukee.org and check availability. Have questions?? Ask Dawn!!

Plans are moving along for the Rides Home across the US. There will be four rides across the country, and will start from cities in the Northwest, Southwest, Southeast and Northeast. Exact locations are still being determined, so stay tuned! All the Rides Home will begin in early July and land in Milwaukee on July 12.

Harley should be making an announcement about when they'll announce the 2023 Model Year Lineup and (we think) more details about the 120th Anniversary sometime this month -will keep you posted!!
Get the Details at FXThunderHOG.com/Events

What to do during the Winter Months?
Scientific fact that, when you're busy, time passes quickly! With that in mind, let's have some fun this winter... But what to do?? Go Bowling, have a movie night, (indoor) pool party or something else?

We'd like to hear what you'd like to do for the months of March and April!! Email Jodi & let us know!!

Almost Heaven Ride for 2023! Our own Don Daly has been planning this trip out for next year...
Almost Heaven Ride 2023
This time around, we're looking at going to Altoona, PA -a destination that is a day's ride to get there, then spending two full days riding and visiting the attractions. Those include (but not limited to) the Flight 93 Memorial, Railroaders Memorial Museum, Horseshoe Curve National Park & more.
Question is, when do you want to go?
August 10-13, 2023
August 24-27, 2023
I can do either, just let me know!
Sorry, can't go in August
Sorry, can't go/not interested
Other Rides & Ride Challenges for 2023
We're in the process of choosing dates and destinations for our Picnic Rides as well as our Fall Foliage Ride and will have those details soon.

And for our own FX Thunder HOG Chapter Ride Challenges, we've come up with two for 2023:
  1. Visiting Cities, Towns and Villages to spell out "THUNDER ADAMS CENTER"
  2. Visiting Harley-Davidson Dealerships far & near to earn points.

Look for those details on all of that to be posted next month. If you've got an idea, please share it!! Remember: this is YOUR FX Thunder HOG Chapter!!! It is what you make it, so make it a good one
What are your ideas?
The main reason our HOG Chapter exists is so that we like-minded individuals who are passionate about motorcycling adventure and Harley-Davidson can get together and have fun!!

To that end, we're always on the look out for new & interesting places to go and things to do!! What are your ideas? What would you like to do? Where do you want to go??
