Thoughts On The Harley Patch And Pin Culture


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.
