Message to New Members:
Congratulations on your new Harley and welcome to the DFW Texas Harley Owners Group chapter. We look forward to you riding with us on our many chapter rides and social events throughout the year. Please reach out to our officers and road captains with destinations you are interested in riding to.

I am fairly new to riding myself. I bought my first bike in 2020 and an addiction was found. Six months later I bought my first Harley Davidson and ride every chance I get. 50,000 miles and counting on two wheels. My wife Tera joined in on the fun as well in 2023 with a Heritage. The adventures and memories in front of you are endless and there is no better therapy than 2 wheels in the wind with family and some of the closest friends you will ever make.
