PATCHES

Raleigh H.O.G. offers some great riding opportunities with our weekly group chapter rides.  We also encourage our members to take off on their own and enjoy the great North Carolina highways and back roads on their Harley Davidson.  And why not earn a patch while doing both!  John Sullivan is your contact for all patches.

NC 100 Patch
Raleigh H.O.G. created this patch to encourage chapter members to visit all 100 North Carolina counties in a 12 calendar month period riding their Harley Davidson motorcycle.  The 12 calendar month period officially starts when you notify John Sullivan and you have received confirmation.  The 12 calendar month period ends on the last day of the month, 12 months from the start. Credit cannot be claimed for county visits prior to officially starting. Each member participating must maintain and present a completed log for a patch to be awarded to that member. Couples should maintain a separate log for both participants! Click here;to obtain a copy of the patch rules, a log for recording county visits and a map.
