Harley-Davidson® established the Harley Owners Group® in 1983 in response to a growing desire by Harley® riders for an organised way to share their passion and show their pride. By 1985, 49 local chapters had sprouted around the US, with a total membership of 60,000.

Rapid growth continued into the 1990s, and in 1991 H.O.G.® officially went international, with the first official European H.O.G.® Rally in Cheltenham, England. Worldwide membership numbered 151,600, with 685 local chapters.
