Chapter Information

Chapter Director, Mark Davidson

Mark DavidsonMy name is Mark Davidson and I am the Director of the DFW H.O.G. Chapter sponsored by Texas Harley-Davidson in Bedford. Our Chapter allows people who share a passion for Harley-Davidson® motorcycles to come together. When joining a local chapter, you’ll always have plenty of opportunities to meet with friends, have fun, support worthy causes, and ride! Feel free to call or email me with ride suggestions or ideas for the chapter. Remember, our mission is to ride and have fun. My email address and telephone number are published in the chapter's newsletter.

The chapter has lots of activities planned for the months ahead. Please check the calendar and your newsletter for the schedule and other information concerning the Chapter's activities. I think 2017 will be a great year for our chapter.
