Benefit for Chris Hull
Christopher, at only 22, was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer: Ewing Sarcoma. Months of misdiagnosis has complicated treatment, and he has had to relocate to Boston -which has put quite a financial burden on Chris and his parents.

A graduate of Pulaski High School, a MP in the Army National Guard and an employee of FX Caprara Harley-Davidson, he is as local and genuine as they come.

Please join Chris's family and friends for Lasagna Dinner ($10 a plate), 50/50 Raffles and more.  January 11, 12-5pm  at Route 11 North Bar & Grill (5233 US Route 11, Pulaski, NY). 
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. 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.  
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 (, call 315-583-6177, or on the WhatsApp) no later than our March Get Together, March 7th.
