Harley Owners Group® To Tour Oswego

The Harley Owners Group (H.O.G. ®) will be touring Lake Ontario in June. The H.O.G. Great Lakes: Ontario Tour is a four-day event based in Rochester. Each day, riders will take day trips throughout the region. Riders will be in Oswego the morning of Tuesday, June 22.

This is an official Harley-Davidson event held exclusively for members of the Harley Owners Group (H.O.G.) riding club registered for the H.O.G. Great Lakes: Ontario Tour.

"When we initially met with representatives from H.O.G., we were excited about showcasing what Oswego has to offer to riders from throughout the nation," said Christine Gray, director of the Oswego County Promotion and Tourism Department. "This event will help to generate tourism dollars to the area's attractions, shops, and restaurants."

"Oswego has historic sites of national significance that we're proud to present to tourists," said Oswego Mayor John J. Gosek. While in Oswego, riders are scheduled to visit Fort Ontario State Historic Site, the Safe Haven Museum and Education Center, and the H. Lee White Marine Museum.

"The Oswego Chamber has collaborated with the Harley Owners Group to promote our members to their members," said Jennifer Hill, executive director of the Greater Oswego Chamber of Commerce. An official "H.O.G. on Tour" poster will be made available to any chamber member willing to offer substantial discounts to registered participants of the H.O.G. Great Lakes: Ontario Tour. H.O.G. members will know to look for the official H.O.G. on Tour poster to take advantage of specials and discounts. H.O.G. will promote this program to the approximately 1,200 event attendees.

Oswego is the riders' first destination on the tour. Group members will be travelling separately, starting at different times.

This is the second in a series of tours highlighting the Great Lakes regions. H.O.G. members toured Lake Superior in 2002.
