Club History

H.O.G. started in Tasmania in 1992 with the North Tas Chapter sponsored by Richardson's Motorcycles Launceston. The first newsletter was in August 1992. By December, newsletter no.4 lists 29 financial members. The Club included members from across the north of the State.

A second H.O.G. Chapter started in 1998 following Richardson's opening a dealership in Hobart. Their founding meeting was held on 2 April 1998 with 24 members plus further associate members. The Club commenced mid June. In 2000 they commenced their own newsletter which was named 'South Pork'.

Following the closure of the Hobart dealership the Southern Chapter ceased to exist in April 2002. On 25 August 2002 both the North and ex- Southern Chapters combined to form the Tasmania Chapter. And we haven't looked back. Given the distance between the regions separate rides are programmed for each area with combined events held as often as time allows.
