I have multiple jobs with the chapter. I officially work with the dealership and chapter in upholding the “Annual Charter for HOG Chapters.”
Promote HOG and HOG chapter events to existing and potential members and support the rest of the officers with their roles and responsibilities and one of those roles is the Photographer.
As your (former) official photographer (Now handled by Frank Castillo) I have had the privilege and responsibility to record those moments of camaraderie and friendship while out riding.
I get a great joy in seeing those images of laughter and genuine sense of goodwill to each other thru the common bond of the love of riding and the motorcycle and that is what it is all about.
It is all about the ride, the members and how we all can contribute to making it a great experience every time.
We can all be a part of that experience by not only offering your knowledge of little known routes, but by helping one another out.
If you see a member you do not know, go up to that person and introduce yourself. You are all ambassadors to this chapter and thru that friendship, we will grow and make the rides and events that much more enjoyable and memorable. Reach out to each other. Be it at the diner, at the dealership or on the road….my camera will catch that moment (right Richard Aquilia?) and we will all smile and laugh.
That is what it is all about…
