Hello, I’m Gill Mogg (Moggy). Director of Bridgwater Chapter

 
 
 

 

Welcome to our web site.  I'm really proud to be a member of the Harley Owners Group (H.O.G.). We're people from all walks of life who love their Harley Davidsons. 

Bridgwater Chapter was formed in 1989 (the oldest continous Chapter in Europe) and with nearly 400  members, we're still growing. Whether you like riding alone, with a few friends or a group, dancing til dawn or riding all day, we have something for you. I am really proud to be the Director of Bridgwater Chapter. I joined in 1998 and since then I have experienced some of the best times of my life with wonderful experiences and marvellous friends. We’ve recently expanded this site with some extra exciting features including  new sections such 'Our Bikes', 'Adventures', 'Ladies of Harley' and ‘Merchandise’ The new pages will grow as time goes on, so the site will keep changing.

 

If you're not a member, I hope you have a look through this site and then join us. Click here for my page

Happy Viewing - Moggy xx

It's here - Don't miss the 2015 NEW Harley Davidson Launch!!! 

     Harley-Davidson® stays hard on the throttle with the introduction of its 2015 model line-up from

     world-class aerodynamics and exhilarating audio performance to dialled-in ergonomic fit,

     Harley- Davidson® expands its diverse offering of motorcycles and now gives more riders more

     ways than ever to enjoy the open road.

 

     On Thursday October 9th you'll have the opportunity to get a first look at the stunning new

     range of 2015 Harley-Davidson ® motorcycles at Riders. We will be throwing open our doors for

     a VIP reveal evening, hope to see you in store!

 

     We will also be open on Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th (from 10am-4pm) for your chance to

     ride the new models too. They are likely to be popular – you can book your demo in advance if

     you like!

 

     Electra Glide® Ultra Limited Low

 

     The Ultra Limited Low is all new for 2015 and another great asset to have come out of Project

     RUSHMORE. We've dropped the suspension, pulled back the handlebars, lowered the seat, put

     on an extended reach side stand, re-positioned the passenger foot pegs, and even reduced the

     diameter of the handgrips, so the bike will now suit the shorter stature rider. Same bike, all the

     features, just a totally new fit.

 

     Street Glide® Special

 

     Pure street style and long haul comfort made it the #1 in the global Harley line-up. Add factory

     pin-striping, a painted inner fairing and an upgraded infotainment system to Boom!™ Box 6.5GT

     audio system with GPS and touchscreen, and you’ll get the new Street Glide® Special. Look out,

     the rest of the world.

 

     2015 Harley-Davidson Road Glide® Special

 

     Spy photos, gossip and wild speculation have flooded the Internet because Harley-Davidson®

     fans around the globe anticipated the return of the Road Glide® motorcycle. The wait is over –

     the Road Glide® Special is here. Totally new and decked out with aggressive style and mile-

     eating features, the Road Glide® Special

  

     Open to all chapter members see you there x

CIDER RALLY 2015 

 

    So boys and girls the time is nearly upon us, Its CIDER RALLY time, whhhhhhhhhooooooooo. We are just so

    pleased that the Cider Rally lives on for 2015 and hopefully for many more years to come. Last year was

    horrible for us and were absolutely gutted of even the thought that after 23 years there would not be a

    Rally but thankfully all was ok and Pontin's took over. So from the bottom of our hearts we would like to

    thank each and every one of you for sticking by us and supporting the event, if it wasn't for you guys and

    gals we wouldn't even have a Rally, so thanks again, and hope you support us again.

 

    As you know Sand bay have been making improvements building more chalets so hopefully we will be able

    to  get a lot more folk on site, also updating the original Chalets, not sure when this is but hopefully some

    would have been done before May. A lot of us are going down to a 60's weekend end of Oct so we can have

    a nose at what's been done.

 

    So if you are a Bridgwater member your booking form will be in with your Sept what's on, as no mag this

    month, then for all you other lovely folk there will be a booking form on the front page of the site from

    28th September, so as soon as you get your form or see it on the site get it off ASAP so you can ensure you

    are on site, think most of you know by now that to be on site you must be a current HOG member, this does

    not apply to camping or off site.

 

    So let’s continue to party Bridgwater style for many years to come. Thank you again

 

    See ya there

 

    Luv to you all

 

    Moggy and the Bridgwater Crew

    x

 

See You All There!!!

    next month’s mag as still waiting for info from the carnival folk, if any of you wants any info on

    accommodation for the carnivals give us a shout.

 

    Sunday 19th October Hoggin The Bridge - we may have someone leaving Taunton early am but this is to

    be confirmed.

 

    We have some members that live Dorset way that we don’t really get to see very often so they have asked

    us if we can do a natter night that way sometime in Oct then next hear we will do more that way maybe a

    overnighter with them, all details to be confirmed but looking at Fri 10th Oct at the Trumpet Major Inn

    Dorchester, so watch this space.
