Thoughts On The Harley Patch And Pin Culture

a

My 2016 HOG card came in the mail today along with the 2016 HOG patch and pin. Like all previous patches and pins that I received, these will also be put away in some corner and forgotten. Maybe it’s just me, but I never quite understood the point of walking around with patches and pins stuck to my riding jacket. I mean, I’ll wear a t-shirt that has a Harley-Davidson logo or motorcycle on it. But somehow I could never bring myself to become a walking talking notice board of all my riding achievements. This patch and pin stuff is one aspect of the Harley culture that I could never really wrap my head around.
